A decent place to sleep near the hospital

This is the older of two hotels in the block next to the Duke University Hospital. This one is more off the main road and next to at least one substance abuse counseling center. That made the whole feel rather sketchy, especially for a single, female traveler. I was attending a conference at Duke University and this appeared to be the closest hotel to the venue. The Lobby is spartan and desk staff looks like folks who have benefited from the nearby centers' programs and are working at reclaiming their lives. I was extremely doubtful at first. The rooms, however, were spotless and quiet. It appeared that Hospital staff stay in this hotel from time to time, too, which increased my confidence and feeling of general safety. Parking was limited but very close to the lobby entrance which was the only access to the rooms. Don't expect any real coffee or pastry in the morning, either in your room or in the lobby. I will probably pay more and stay farther away from the venue if I travel to Duke Univ in the future.

ok

We (my mom, nephew, 2yr old daughter, and myself) had to take my nephew to Duke Children's Hospital for his Muscular Dystrophy appointments among other dr. appointments. [...] Our room SMELLED bad of bug spray and there were mysterious wet spots on the floor. The staff was not the greatest either. Also, said they had a complimentary breakfast- all they had was milk, juice, coffee, apples, and old hard small bread pastry. Not worth the $90 we paid for a one night stay. PLENTY of other hotels nearby that give half price discounts, have better breakfast, and pools for less then this price.

Right next door at the "B Hotel" they have a diner that has some of the best, homemade food around and for a good price.

Average place

This is a very average place. It is very expensive for the quality of its amenities. The bath tub was very old with most of the the glazed lining gone and black spots were visible all over the bottom of the tub.This made it difficult to tell if the tub was really clean or not.The morning complimentary breakfast had very few items on the menu and not worth it. Don't be carried away with the free shuttle to Duke Medical Center as Duke is maybe a block away and you can walk that distance. It is not worth saving the 20$ by staying at this inn instead of a regular Hotel.

Great Location to the Medical Center

The university Inn was right across the street from the Duke Medical center, which was very convenient. It made it really easy to get back and forth and there were buses too and from the airport across the street. The room was big and comfortable.

Close to Duke University

University Inn at Duke Hospital was very convenient to Duke University and not too far from the shopping & tourist areas I'd wanted to visit. The room was nicely appointed, older though clean enough, and the bed was comfortable. Continental breakfast was pretty non-descript, standard fare--I would have preferred fancier, but didn't fret over it. It seemed a tad pricey to me, though it was parent's weekend at the University, so things might have been more expensive than usual. I wouldn't mind staying there again.
