Convenient to dining options. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast service amidst COVID was very good.

We checked into a room where it was 59 degrees. I changed the thermostat immediately. It took three days for temp to reach 73 degrees. Also no housekeeping during stay.

The front desk was short staffed and not courteous. Did not give breakfast vouchers/ coupons at checkin. Had to go again to get them.

My wife and I were there for a 2 night stay. We didn't see a housekeeper anywhere in the hotel for our entire stay. Our towels were not changed, bed not made, coffee and cups not refreshed.

Convenient location. Unable to use the pool or work our center due to corona restrictions understandably.

Staff was nice. However, the room was dirty. Residual dirt and air in the sink and shower. The trash can still had trash in it from previous guests. There was a hole in the wall, which was filled in with toilet paper. (I have photos, but do not a form where I can submit these). I also found strands of hair under the sheets. For $120 a night, I was expecting much better. When I went down to the front desk to see if we could have a different room, there was nobody at the front desk. Waited 10 minutes. Overall, a very disappointing experience.

All the staff we met were kind and friendly. The only criticism is that that cooling system is noisy and it blows really hard right onto where you would set up your laptop for remote work. Everything else was great!

I would stay here again. Dog friendly and nice room.

Convenient to dpac but no good restaurants or bars nearby!

Great for our over night pit stop in Durham! Clean with easy check in and check out .

clean well appointed room. Friendly staff. Bar available for food and coffee in lobby

The hotel staff was bad, room service took 2 hours. The hotel was being painted by slobs, paint everywhere, trash everywhere, very filthy.
