We enjoyed the positive attitude of the staff, and the eagerness to help in any way! Unfortunately, Covid kept us from enjoying better breakfasts, but that is out of the hands of the management! We will definitely consider staying here again when in the area!

Since there is a pandemic they don't have maid service during your stay. So trash can be bagged and placed outside door. Towels can be requested and they will hang a bad of towels on the doorknob for you. There was no microwave in the room....thought those were standard but they had one for use in the lobby. Pool wasn't open yet... didn't look at the workout area or business area... was just a quick trip to pick my daughter up from college. Quiet, clean, great location.

Great getaway

I stayed here this past weekend , I really enjoyed my stay. The hotel was very clean and was complimented by a awesome staff. The bistro was a little over priced but teh food was great. The location was easy to find off the highway and fairly close to everything.

Comfortable and affordable with some minor issues

Cons: Noisy
This hotel is relatively new with clean common areas as well as clean rooms. The room prices were better than average for this level of hotel. The staff seemed friendly. We booked a room with a king bed, however the room seemed a little smaller than those provided by comparable chains and seemingly even smaller than other Courtyard properties that I've stayed at. The biggest surprise was the lack of a mini-fridge in the room, since that is often common in even lesser hotels and motels at this point. This meant that some urgent perishables had to be put on ice rather than simply stored in a mini-fridge. The bed was reasonably comfortable and met expectations, I've slept in better but also much worse. I did not notice any noise issues from adjacent rooms, but I did notice that sound insulation seemed to be insufficient between the room and the hallway. The result is that I was awakened by a moderate volume hallway conversation near my room at 2:30 AM. All things considered, I would definitely stay here again, but I might try other locations first primarily because of the noise issue.

Great stay in Durham

We stayed here over 4th of July, and the room was comfortable and clean, though small. We had a king sized bed and a pull-out couch, but I think if we were staying with anyone else, it would have been cramped. There was just the two of us. The front desk staff was helpful, though they were out of just about everything I asked for by way of brochures and Marriott directories. The hotel has free wi-fi, which was great, and also had a computer with a printer in the front lobby area to use. Breakfast is NOT free, which was a bummer, but for $/person, we had a continental breakfast in the dining room. We saved such a bundle on the room, it was not a big deal to pay for breakfast.

comfortable

One of the major reasons I choose this hotel was the price combined with certain amenities such as the indoor whirlpool. The balcony on the room was a nice surprise. The only thing was my husband thought the bed wasn?t too comfortable. By far the best thing was the silence. When we left the do not disturb sign on the door we actually weren?t disturbed. No one knocking on our door, no loud staff yelling down the hallway, and no noises from other rooms or the freeway. The chance to actually sleep in was the best part."
