This hotel was very comparable to a Hilton hotel for less money. Staff was super friendly & very helpful. Breakfast was not free, but it was AWESOME!

Pretty nice. I would recommend it. Better than the University Inn next door.

Modern and clean. Would stay again. Plenty of parking.

Very clean, friendly staff. I liked the shuttle to take for free

Based on what I paid for my room, I was shocked to see the state of the check-in desk and the unprofessional check-in staff. The check-in was quick, but nothing was explained to me--not the wifi, shuttle, nothing. I was very happy with my room. I paid a small amount to update to a King bed. It was great to have a large desk to work at plus a sofa with a laptop table. The frig and microwave allowed me to eat breakfast in my room and re-heat leftovers from restaurants. The fake brick wall is a bit tacky and the room could use more light, but the pluses definitely outweigh the minus. The shuttle is a huge plus. The drivers provide great service and will drive you anywhere within 5 miles. This doesn't include the airport, put does include some great restaurants, Whole Foods, Duke University, etc.

I loved the floor in the room (no carpets!) comfortable beds and very clean bathroom. Thank you.

Location to Duke University Hospital and the V.A. is perfect. Very clean conditions. When making a reservation make sure your room is away from the elevator. Very noisy. Rooms are not insulated well. Can hear everything outside of room and those next door to the room.

All of the hotel staff were excellent, I really enjoyed my time here.

The room was clean and recently updated. The common areas and exterior could still use a little attention.

Comfortable, clean, walking distance from Duke University Hospital. If you have an appointment at Duke requiring an overnight stay, I highly recommend staying here.

Comfortable room, very close to Duke University Hospital-close enough to walk to the hospital. We'll be staying at Cambria again for my next surgery appointment

Charged $5 for parking and put $30 charge on card for incidentals which will be credited in next two weeks. No other hotel we have stated in does this. Breakfast not included with room.

Good location to get downtown and back to I85, staff members were excellent

We really enjoyed our stay in the hotel. Everything was perfect. Very clean! We lived it. Thank you to all their staff. They were very friendly.
