We stayed 2 nights here and had a good experience. Hotel was nice, clean, and comfortable. Very nice breakfast. Staff was friendly. Easy on and off from 85, but our room was facing the interstate and was loud.

I am part of a group from Eastern Virginia Medical School who makes the 3-4 hour annual trip to this facility while working for 3 days/early evenings at Duke University. We have followed this plan for several years and have found this hotel to be an exceptional choice for clean comfortable rooms and excellent customer service. We were 10 minutes...

This is a very nice hotel close to town, easy on and off the freeway. Our room was very clean, large and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. Our first room had a problem with the air conditioning we let the desk clerk know he took care of it immediately. Good breakfast

Upon checking in, I was sent to an occupied room, where the couple inside were "en flagra delit". Needless to say, I was extremely embarrassed, as I am certain they were. I apologized for walking in on them, and returned to the front desk to request another room. The manager passed me in the hallway on the first floor, and...

Thank you Matthew for taking the time to review your recent stay. The elderly couple in the room did not recall you entering their room, so perhaps it will ease your mind that you were not interrupting what you thought.

My wife was having surgery at Duke and we needed a place to stage the night before. This Holiday Inn was very nice, clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean with no odd hotel smells. Unfortunately we had to leave very early and was unable to partake of the breakfast. I'll stay...

The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive (with a particular shout out to Gwen, who was so incredibly nice and helpful). Rooms modern, clean and spacious. Breakfast buffet was very good for the format.

I reserved a room with a King bed about a week in advance. When we arrived at the hotel (at about 3pm), we checked in, and there was no mention of any problems with the reservation. Upon opening the door to the room we realized it was a Double room instead of a King. I went back to the front...

Very clean room. Excellent choices for the breakfast. Staff was wonderful! Quick and easy access to the highway without the highway noise. We don't usually stay at a hotel when we are within a few hours of home, but our schedule made it necessary. No regrets!

We recently stayed here on a visit to Duke University. The service was excellent and they had some great spaces to work at in the lobby. The rooms were clean and the beds and pillows comfortable.
