Guest reviews for Days Inn by Wyndham Durham/Near Duke University

2 out of 5
The property had a good rating. However, the actual property had several issues that were at the least disappointing. The good rating was NOT deserved. The first was that the outside overhang by my room [103] was hanging loose. That was scary and a potential threat to clients. The second was the room itself. While the bedroom portion was fine, the bathroom area suggested a slipshod renovation. The shower, while spacious, was cobbled together by an amateur or a very unskilled worker. The water drained poorly and without the client pushing the water toward the drain would have caused a flood. The breakfast area was very clean and well kept. However, on one day when the regular worker was away, everything was in short supply.

Thank you for staying with us. We have done a huge renovation in the last 2 years, but maintenance is always ongoing in any hotel. We are working on the outside renovations now. Sorry you had issues.

I asked for a nonsmoking room. The room I was given smelled like a stale ashtray.

We try our best to clean rooms everyday and we always give rooms as requested , but quite a few times customers smoke in a non smoking room. Sorry for the issues.

Nice hotel close to highway 85. Looks old but is fine for just sleeping.

Convenient location, nice stay!

Pros: It was pretty much 'go about your business' at the same time making sure nothing was left unchecked.
Cons: To be honest, the only things that were 'off' were that they ran out of 'room coffee' and that the (free) breakfast ended at 9 AM. Otherwise A+
Location: Durham is amazing.
This place was right for the price, for sure. I'd say even more so -- free breakfast every morning, attentive staff, room was nice. Absolutely recommended. Stayed 5 nights in May 2017.

NICE NEWLY RENOVATED HOTEL

Pros: Rooms are very clean and modern.
Cons: walkways
Location: Very close to Duke
I usually stay at the quality inn that's in the town. This hotel is also very much nicer in nearly every aspect. First thing I noticed was how genuinely friendly everyone is. I know that anyone in the hotel industry needs to be friendly, but too often it's forced and insincere. Not here and I interacted with at least 7 different employees. Every single one greeted me with a smile and "hello". Rooms were nice and clean and the hotel, for the most part, was quiet. Breakfast was decent. Nothing special, but good (eggs, sausage,biscuits, gravy, waffle maker, etc). I'll definitely be staying here next time I'm in town. All around a very well run hotel.

This Hotel was under renovation & not clean.

Pros: Leaving it was the highlight, This hotel is poorly managed and poorly maintained.
Cons: New management and housekeeping.
We stayed the weekend of a large winter storm. No weather seals around the doors. In fact the door to our room would not even close, we used a chair to secure it. We asked for a refund and did not receive it from the hotel operator. We needed to leave this poorly managed hotel to for many reasons, the most important being my wife who is very ill. We needed the hotel for rest in between procedures at Duke Hospital. The management of the hotel seemed to not be aware that construction dust in the rooms, wast and debris around the halls and walkways. The rooms we went into were dirty and our second room at the hotel that we were in, was given to us as a room that was never rented since the renovation. I asked the owner if it had never been rented then why is the a used bar of soap and a half container of shampoo in the shower soap dish? I have pictures of the rooms and hotel to back up my claims. My request to the hotel is to refund the money I spent for the two days of misery that this establishment provided during our stay. I intend to also sent this information to the Health Department for review.

Not bad for an old hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
The hotel is obviously an old one, and it seemed to me that they were doing the best with what they had to offer. The location worked well for my needs, but it is not where I would normally choose to stay. It was clean and tidy, and I spent a comfortable night there.
