What a terrible place...

Had to change rooms three times over a 5 day stay because of various issues including the air conditioner not working, and a leak in my ceiling. I didn't expect much going in, but I got even less. Never would stay here again.

Carpets were clean but stained. Bed sheets kept coming off the bed, the staff seemed extremely bothered that they were there.

The staff was great! It is like a home away from home. I love the full kitchen! I was able to have a relaxing night at an affordable price!

Decent hotel great location

We went to Durham for the Alabama/Duke game. The hotel staff upon early arrival was nice enough to let us fill out our paperwork so we wouldnt have to later.We officially checked in late that night and were given keys to a room that was trashed (literally) but that quickly fixed. Overall we were satisfied.Great location for us with a shopping center within walking distance.Close to Duke,food etc.. The rooms are small but perfect for a short stay or place just to lay your head.It is an older hotel so I wouldnt reccomend this to someone who is used to four star hotels or picky.Oh and no ice machines since you have refrig/freezer in room.Plan ahead.

So-so

I only stayed here for one night, it wasn't anything spectacular but it got the job done. I had booked a room with two double beds but upon arrival they did not have one available. I downgraded to a room with one double bed and a pull-out couch for a lesser price. Had I planned to stay for any longer this would have upset me but it was only one night and the staff was very helpful with everything.

Franklin Street is on the UNC campus and is a cool place to walk around, shop, eat and drink.
