A Night's Sleep Spoiled

Would not recommend Tue, Feb 12, 2013
Because I was familiar with this hotel, when it began life as a Sheraton in the early 1980s, I hate to say anything less than nice about it. Unfortunately, I am compelled to point out the irony that the fourth floor of the hotel is occupied by Duke Sleep Disorder Clinic, which is where we wanted to head after just one night at the Millenium. On the bright side, it is very convenient to the Duke Campus, were we needed to be, the room was generously sized and the public areas and amenities of the Property are generally fine. However, the absolute most important part of a hotel stay, which is the bed in which one rests, was inexplicably awful! It appeared to be a king bed, but bore a closer kinship to a trampoline, in that the entire bed shook when my wife or I moved even a little. The sheets were either a very cheap cotton or had been super starched (or, perhaps, both), since the noise they made when they rustled was loud enough to wake you when you were fortunate enough to fall lightly asleep. The prefab shower had mold stains in the seams and all of the faucets were difficult to operate. The shower head worked more like a water hose than a spray. Of the two computers in the lobby business center, one was marked "out of service" and the other wouldn't connect to the internet to allow us to print boarding passes. Fortunately, the woman manning the front desk was kind enough to print them at her computer. Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, the play was fine!

Great location

Would recommend Mon, Feb 11, 2013
Great location... Clearly an old hotel that needs some TLC. Very clean, but lumpy mattress and papery sheets. It perfectly met my needs and I was able to get it for $77 a night, excellent value.

If it weren't for the Proximity to the Duke Game....

Would not recommend Mon, Jan 7, 2013
Pros: SO close to Cameron Indoor Stadium. Good price. Forgot my son's toothbrush, and the hotel store had one for $2.40 (not too bad) Room service Rueben was soggy. Cons: Two sets of manual doors at entry and no one to help as you are carting your stuff in. Not the most comforting first impression when you have been driving for hours. The rooms are "fine" definitely nothing to write to home about. The pillows are AWFUL. The hot water was not always great. It didn't get outright cold, but sometimes during shower had to get the knob all the way to H just to stay warm, then later it scalded. Something not quite right. Breakfast buffet was lousy. Room service pizza was good.

Very Underwhelmed

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 22, 2012
At first glance,, Millenium Hotel looks nice and upscale. But once inside....the lobby couches were worn and faded from the sun. The room-the carpet was pulled away and fraying from the tile. There was black and pink mold on tile grout and black mold growing under the poor caulk job in the shower. The vanities were extremely low-faux granite. The bath and sink stoppers were black from the chrome being worn off. Wifi was $9.95 for twenty-four hours-what hotel charges for wifi anymore? Not impressed at all!

Power outage

Would recommend Mon, Oct 22, 2012
The hotel was nice as usual, but there was an issue with the power. During our stay, the power went out one night and made for a horrible evening. It would also be nice if you could get some cell phone service in the hotel. At this time you cannot use your cell phones while in the hotel because of no service.

Not so great location, bad wireless

Would not recommend Sun, Oct 14, 2012
The hotel is located close to Duke, but not in a great neighborhood. They do have a shuttle to Duke campus, as you may not want to walk the 5-10 minutes to campus. Wireless was flaky. No cell reception inside building.

Great location for Duke Hospital

Would recommend Sat, Oct 6, 2012
Room was excellent. The first room was supposed to be a non-smoking room but some previous guests has obviously smoked which had not been picked up by the cleaning crew. They gave me another room which was excellent
