Room wad small and not laid out very thoughtfully. Breakfast is not complimentary and was out of the item i wanted. All other aspects were pretty much average. Not bad, but not great overall.

The rooms were clean and updated, as were the lobby. The carpets in the hallways were a bit dingy.

I always have a great stay. They help me during my time of trouble with my car. They extended my check out time me and my family greatly appreciated

Staff at this property is the most helpful I have ever encountered. They could not have made the stay any more pleasant.

All of the food in the marketplace was sold out. We had to walk around the parkinglot to the gas station.

Staff was very warm and welcoming. They were updating/renovating the lobby, but was not intrusive and almost done. The upgraded lobby looks great and our room looked to be newly updated and very nice.

Lobby was under rennovation with no attempt to screen it from patrons. Bathrooms were out of order in the lobby. Our TV did not work, elevator smelled. Room was fine however. Just not the standard I would expect from a Marriott property

Second time staying at this hotel and it was nice

Nice and somewhat clean, the bathroom might need some upgrade but other than that! Fine

The beds were not very comfortable, but otherwise the room was good.

The hotel is clean, quiet, and comfortable. The staff was very friendly.

The price was competitive for a budget hotel. Check in was easy, but when we got to the room we noticed used coffee cups lying around. Shortly we realized that someone else was already checked into the room! We quickly got another room. The walls and ceiling/floor were incredibly thin. We could hear neighbors talking and walking. When a door on the hallway shut, it shook the walls. Neighbors came in around midnight and were very loud, sounding like they were in our room. I could hear their kids chastising the parents for smoking, them smelled the smoke. Behavioral issues belong to the people, but the noise problems belong to the hotel. Pool area was tired with some broken tile and the depth markings are wrong. Despite all that, it was relatively clean and provided easy access to Duke. Hey, what do you want for $80?

Super pleasant and efficient staff. Prompt service - extra towels arrived within 10 minutes of request and the tip was refused. Very clean.

This Courtyard is located just minutes from the campus of Duke University. There are 5 restaurants and a BP gas station within 100 yards of the hotel, which sits adjacent to an access ramp to I-85. Hotel staff were excellent, smiling, pleasant, helpful.

Recently good amenities. Satisfactory restaurant. Conference discount mailroom affordable otherwise a little high for what it offers.

I gave it a lower overall review because they don't have password protected wifi, and the wifi can be slow. Plus, I had an issue with breakfast once. They gave my order to someone else & then once they finally fixed mine (after 30 minutes), it was burned. The staff was apologetic though & most of the staff is very friendly & helpful. 2nd stay at a Courtyard Marriott & the staff has been great at both places. I think I'll stay somewhere else in the future though. I like free breakfast & password protected wifi.
