Needs attention

Positives: good clean room, convenient location, decent breakfast. Negatives: slow sink drain (front desk gave me a plunger to correct the problem); no onsite fitness center; no newspapers on the weekend (no newspaper vending machines either) was told to "go down the street" to purchase one; mold in bathroom; noisy interstate traffic

Breakfast was great and staff very helpful

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Card readers for the door sometimes did not work. The staff was there right away to open the door, but still anoying.

How many times a day can you pick up litter in the parking lot?

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Apparently, even on a very clean site, there's always time to pick up a stray candy wrapper or cigarette butt! I use this an an example of the cleanliness and attention to detail at this hotel. Really great staff. Very friendly and very helpful. I didn't have any issues, but always felt they were really listening to me. I don't get to Durham often but this is now my go-to hotel. It wasn't as close as I had hoped to DPAC, but that didn't matter.

Small and friendly

Stayed here for five nights and was quite pleased. The bed was very comfortable, but as I was leaving I saw shipments of even newer mattresses being delivered. Excellent location; close to everything. Staff very helpful and friendly.
