This hotel may be great for some people. It’s convenient to Durham bars and restaurants, and has a vibrant feel. The staff was great, too. The problem for me was the noise level. It sounded like a rodeo over my head, and a party in the hall. Inadequate sound insulation or poor design. Loud carts being rolled overhead late into the night, too. They offered me a discount, but only applied it to one of two rooms. And really it isn’t enough. I won’t stay here again.

Friendly staff and good location. I’ve been here four times for work and it’s my preferred hotel in Durham.

Very good central location. Funky place. Very welcoming.

Nice staff and good central location. Clean facilities and rooms. Nice bar area.

The design of this place is very cool. The pool area feels like a mix of Miami and Las Vegas with a more clubby vibe at night. I was there on a Monday night in the summer and the chill vibe was just what I was looking for.

Loved the decor comfy beds loved the themes shower was odd

The room that I was given was extremely small and had absolutely no windows in the room.

They tried to do something cool here but it misses the mark. The rooms smell like smoking and carpets were dirty.

Unscripted is a funky, eclectic hotel in the city center. Everything is within walking distance. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the roof pool level and had such a fun vibe. I highly recommend this place to stay!

Right in the center of downtown, lots of restaurant around the hotel. Hotel staffs are very friendly!

The roof top pool was unique and fun. The rooms were spacious and clean.

The staff was very friendly and professional. The overall vibe was hip and groovy. It didn't have the feel of a typical hotel.

great location, room size was excellent, good bed, quiet

I would give this plus a A and recommend it but, I was told parking was $20 a day. I checked in at 830pm Tuesday night left at 4:30am Thursday morning, less than 48hrs total and was charged $62 the other vehicle I paid for was there less than 24 hrs and charged $31. I contacted the hotel through their website and no responce. The hotel maybe a separate entity frok the motel but they staff needs to be more accurate in the charges. Bern cheaper to park at RDU and took a UBER
