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!

Lacking in all departments

This hotel is a 25 minute drive from the Raleigh/ Durham airport. If you're looking for close to campus and not much else, this is just fine. However, if you are looking to stay somewhere that you'll actually enjoy, I would avoid the Millennium. The only good experience about this hotel was the food. Otherwise, the place is dingy, the staff is rude, and there is no continental breakfast to speak of. There is nothing within walking distance and it is right off the freeway. I just had a bad experience overall. AT&T gets absolutely ZERO reception there, and the room phone didnt work to boot. The internet is not free, either.

Not much good to say

The best thing this hotel has going for it is how close it is to Duke University. Other than that, there's not much. The decor is outdated and, in some cases, broken. The AC did not work well. It is a long walk from one part of the hotel to another. The Internet access was on the expensive side for me, at $13 a day.

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.

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

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.
