Served its purpose

Stayed overnight. Very convenient to Duke. I didn't utilize much of the hotel or interact with staff much but they were night and the room was very comfortable. (No complaints but nothing too special)

Friendly staff and very clean room!

The staff was very helpful with directions! Being able to use the computer in the business center was a nice "perk". My room was spotless! I wish I could have gotten the temperature right in the room...it was really stuffy. Breakfast is more than just continental- very nice spread!

Good Holiday Inn Express for Business / Medical Travel

As expected. A consistent chain for clean, comfortable rooms, this one is no exception. Efficient staff, seemed eager to please. Room very clean. Nice complimentary breakfast. Reasonable price for Durham. Short drive to Duke Med.

Area a bit run down, but if you like Thai food and are looking for a quick meal nearby, Pad Thai across the street serves authentic, well-prepared country Thai.

Convenient and reasonable

We visit family in Durham 2 or 3 times per year and always stay here. It is convenient for us and reasonably priced. The rooms have always been clean. Staff is friendly. They only have an outdoor pool and no hot tub. Breakfast os OK, standard for H.I Express (I like their cinnemon buns).

Clean/ good location/ good price

We booked this just as an overnight after the Duke basketball game. The hotel was clean and well maintained. Our room was quite comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was tasty! We have reservations to stay here again and look forward to it.

Good location

This hotel was in a great location. A 5 minute drive from Downtown Durham, close to Duke University and a 15 minute drive to Chapel Hill. The check in and check out was quick, room was clean and sufficient with a flat screen tv and king size bed. We attended a Duke Basketball game and visited downtown Durham for some great food and experienced Chapel Hill also. If you need a place to stay for a few nights that is convenient and clean, this is the hotel for you!
