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.

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.

Awsome Service

The University Inn Duke Hospital was a very nice place to stay. All the employees were very friendly and went above and beyond to take care or our needs and shuttle us around town. The close proximity to Duke Medical Center was a bonus. The rooms were very large and clean. This hotel was recently converted to a non-smoking facility, and showed no signs of lingering smoking oders. The only area that could use some improvement was the breakfast bar. Overall, I plan on staying there on any of our future trip to this area.
