Good value, location, but rooms and beds dated, uncomfortable

This hotel is overall pretty good and a nice value. It is very close and convenient to Duke University. The common areas and amenities are pretty good including the pool, gym, bar and restaurant. But the rooms are somewhat dated and the beds and pillows could be more comfortable. Also the shower curtains were inappropriate and did not keep shower water contained. There was water damage along the bathroom door suggesting this was a common problem.

Great location, great potential, needs updating and better management

The location just off Duke University campus and I85 is convenient and difficult to beat for visits to Duke or Duke Hospital but the hotel is very tired, behind the times and overpriced. While the room was generally comfortable, it lacked some basics like an in room fridge (which they did provide when we asked for a fee), decent room coffee and fast check out service. The housekeeping overnight was substandard (they forgot to replace the shampoo/conditioner and all the towels we had used. These issues might be ok for a much lower price point hotel but this was really substandard for us for hotels anywhere near this cost. This hotel could be great with a little investment and updating.

A Night's Sleep Spoiled

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!
