    Very friendly staff.

    Entrance and parking need to be upgraded. Shower appeared to be in the middle of renovation. There were openings for faucets, etc., that simply weren't there.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    The bed was very comfortable and the staff courteous and obliging. Overall a budget stay but I did feel the hotel has potential.

    Money needs to be spent on the decor. Really wobbly tables and sinks that take a long time to empty need addressing too.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Excellent location. Has a lot of potential and can be a great place with some work

    Breakfast unsatisfactory. Location good but difficult to find entrance.

    Good location for driving to Duke.

  • 8.8

    An older hotel, but very recently and nicely updated. Excellent value for the money.

    Ran out of coffee before the end of breakfast. Staff did offer to make more, but said it would take a bit of time.

  • 10.0

    The beds are comfortable and rooms are clean.

    This Days inn made our trip awesome. Rooms are big and clean. They have recently been renovated and seems like they were doing some work at the huge pool. The kids were looking for the opening of the pool. Breakfast was great with sausage,biscuits and gravy and also hot waffles. We will always come back on our regular visits to the VA hospital. The staff is awesome and always smiling and willing to help

    LOVED EVERYTHING

  • 2.8

    Incredibly loud power drill and banging noise from roof repair right over my head. Call to front desk did not stop it. I am waiting for a corporate response. Rusty ceiling air outlet, broken shower faucet knob yields barely warm water. Gross and RUSTY refrigerator racks. Plywood on bath room door exposed. Rusty towel rack. Late night noisy neighbor and parking lot guest. Hopeless

  • 4.2

    Staff was nice enough , cordial....

    Black mold on ceiling, could get NO wifi entire weekend (management was told), very, very inconvenient. We were in town for a funeral...

  • 7.4

    Sparse breakfast ends at 9 and there are no notices in the room about it. Bed is comfortable. Room was clean. Good deal for the $.

  • 4.6

    Customer Service, when I can I always used two credit card, this time the guy say you can used cash, when I travel I used very little cash I used my credit card. This is my last time I will ever stay in Day Inn

  • 3.2

    Nothing. The desk clerk was nice. Thanks it.

    This is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. It was totally Unacceptable. The toilet was broke. There was stains on the blankets. The floors was dirty and was not vacuumed. The walls were filthy. The bathtub knobs were broken. The bathtub was dirty and grimy. There was actually dust on the microwave and Fridge the fridge did not have any racks and did not even work. This hotel is horrible. Do not stay here be for-warned. If you do happen to be foolish and stay here. Pay with cash because they swipe your card for payment and also make a imprinted copy of your credit card for whatever reason. This is scary. Why make a copy of your credit card when they have a machine that swipes the card?. Be warned. This is a Horrible Hotel.

  • 3.2

    We were promised smoke free room. Room smelled like smoke real bad of cigarettes. Was told once assigned a room we could not change rooms because lots of remodeling going on Why not told this when I made my reservation weeks before Woke up next morning eyes tearing NOT HAPPY

  • 9.6

    I needed an affordable place near Duke University for a professional visit. The location is excellent - less than 5 mins to campus. Some decent food not to far away by car too, not much to speak of in walkable distance. Just what I needed
