Washington Duke Inn (Not Impressed)

I feel that the Inn was adequate, but not exceptional in any way. There was quite a bit of commotion taking place in the hall way, and the noise was clearly audible even within my suite. I allowed my children to sleep on the pull out sleeper, only to find it very uncomfortable. I'm sorry to say that I would not recommend the Washington Duke Inn.

Not Recommended

Very disappointed in the quality of this hotel. It was noisy and the beds were uncomfortable. My son was more interested in sleeping on the floor than sleeping in the bed. The television is out of date, and there was a slight musty smell to the room. I would not stay there again.

Expensive but worth it!

The Inn is great, beautiful building, grounds, rooms, restaurants, and walking trails, but the greatest thing was the staff. We were there for three nights and interacted with many of the staff. Without exception, they were very friendly, polite and helpful.

Fantastic Stay!!!

We were visiting Duke University and attending one of the Men's basketball games at Cameron Indoor Stadium. We couldn't have asked for a better location! It was right across the street from campus! The area was beautiful and the amentities were overly sufficient. There was a 5k wooded running/walking trail that surrounded the hotel. The staff was more than helpful and very friendly. We received a great rate and our room was gorgeous! I really could not find anything bad to say about our stay.

WASHINGTON DUKE INN

This was a quick business trip. So I was just looking for a hotel close to the Duke Medical Center and this came up for an unbelievable bargin of $99. This will be my first choice whenever I'm in the area.

Great room, great food, great atmosphere

The Washington Duke does not disappoint. From the moment you check in, you are surrounded by friendly faces and helpful attitudes. The rooms are immaculate and nicely decorated with modern decor, accented by photos of the Duke campus. Room service was amazing! The portions were huge, and the food was excellent. They even took our dessert order but waited to bring it to us so that it would be fresh when we were ready to eat it. I don't play golf, but if you do, the course looked great! Very nicely groomed. If you are looking for a great place to stay right next to the Duke campus, this is the place.
