Recent guest reviews

It is pretty close to Duke University. This hotel provides a good location to access nearby attraction.

Staff was very friendly and told us about places to eat and shop close to the hotel.

Location was close to Duke Med Center, and easy to access from the hotel. Staff was very helpful, friendly, and able to answer questions for us. Room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was excellent with many options, and area was clean and orderly and not too crowded. Would definitely stay here again.

I have a great trip to Durham. The hotel was close to the areas I traveled. More importantly the staff was friendly and nice. You cannot beat southern charm!

Stayed overnight. Very convenient to Duke. I didn't utilize much of the hotel or interact with staff much but they were night and the room was very comfortable. (No complaints but nothing too special)

The staff was very helpful with directions! Being able to use the computer in the business center was a nice "perk". My room was spotless! I wish I could have gotten the temperature right in the room...it was really stuffy. Breakfast is more than just continental- very nice spread!

Stayed here one night. The room was clean and the service was good. Just the elevator was a a little slow. I would stay again!

As expected. A consistent chain for clean, comfortable rooms, this one is no exception. Efficient staff, seemed eager to please. Room very clean. Nice complimentary breakfast. Reasonable price for Durham. Short drive to Duke Med.

Excellent! I'm a man with simple needs- clean room, quiet, friendly staff, a quick way in and out. I couldn't ask for better if I were staying with family!

I was there for an overnight trip..the place is clean, comfortable, and quiet.

We visit family in Durham 2 or 3 times per year and always stay here. It is convenient for us and reasonably priced. The rooms have always been clean. Staff is friendly. They only have an outdoor pool and no hot tub. Breakfast os OK, standard for H.I Express (I like their cinnemon buns).

We booked this just as an overnight after the Duke basketball game. The hotel was clean and well maintained. Our room was quite comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was tasty! We have reservations to stay here again and look forward to it.

This hotel was in a great location. A 5 minute drive from Downtown Durham, close to Duke University and a 15 minute drive to Chapel Hill. The check in and check out was quick, room was clean and sufficient with a flat screen tv and king size bed. We attended a Duke Basketball game and visited downtown Durham for some great food and experienced Chapel Hill also. If you need a place to stay for a few nights that is convenient and clean, this is the hotel for you!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately there is not a fitness center at this hotel. The complimentary breakfast was not very satisfying.

Great service, fine breakfast!

JUST THE DUST GOT TO ME, AND ON CLOTHES. WILL STAY AGAIN. NICE PEOPLE THERE.

besides the mosquito in the room, the stay was OK.

The hotel was clean and beds were comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Free breakfast was good. Location was right off the interstate and nothing fancy, but it was convenient for our purposes. Room was too warm and air condition seemed week, but did not ruin our stay.

Clean rooms, friendly, helpful service

Couldn't have asked for anything better
