    The hotel staff was extremely helpful. I was a bit disappointed that I was charged extra for parking in the garage. I would have thought that would be included. The room was immaculate. There, however, was no ice machine on the floor I stayed on.

    Room with a view

    We have stayed here before. Nice hotel. I recommend asking for a room with a window. Our room was on the inside. It felt kind of claustrophobic. Otherwise, all was well.

    Great couples retreat

    Had a blast for our 25th anniversary. The pool was clean and relaxing with bar service available later in the day. Room was sheik and clean. Location to ballpark was key.

    We really liked it in general. The only thing was the carpet with lots of stains.

    Nice place to say in Durham!

    The rooms were clean and well taken care of. Note - "Interior" rooms do not have windows. This was great for us since we needed rest. Only downside was the hallways were very hot for some reason. This did not affect room temperatures. We appreciated the parking validation!

    Parking isn't included in price and the pool area comes with multiple stipulations. Most seats have a minimum purchase requirements. Rooms listed as pool view aren't actually pool view.

    Retro-modern, chic, and chill

    Excellent value! Hip contemporary hotel in downtown Durham, walkable to good restaurants; well-appointed, comfortable rooms and excellent staff. I was on the 3rd floor across from the pool, and it remained boisterous outside after hours. Even with the vibrant nightlife outside my door, I was able to get a great night’s sleep. Unscripted exceeded my expectations, and I would definitely stay here again.

    Make sure you get a window!!

    The stay had some pluses and minuses. First the minuses because the first one is important. I am not sure if I am bothered more by the hotel or The hotel initially gave me a room without a window. I don't think that's code compliant. It's a safety hazard. I then called down to the front desk and they gave me a room with a window. should probably vet this or any other property a little more closely. My room was not cleaned while I was there. Perhaps I was still listed as staying in the windowless room or it's just their cost savings measure, or they missed me on the schedule? Now, the pluses. The staff was very nice. The location is great and the lobby and room are nice. The parking is accessible from the room floors which is very convenient, but also a little unsettling as anyone could just wait around till someone with a key to the room area goes in and let's someone without a key in.
