This property is absolutely filthy and is a terrible place to stay. The rooms stank, the pool is an algae-fest, there is sludge on the walkways, it took forever to get hot water in the shower, etc. Stay away from this place.

Despite the proximity to the highways, this quiet gem offers a center court yard view that I found relaxing. Mattresses and pillows are new and there was no feel of uncleanliness. And the hot breakfast topped off a fabulous stay!

The rooms had new beds, dresser, bathroom counter and flooring & tv but as a single mom traveling with 3 kids- I would have preferred if they had invested more money in the door and lock to my room. I could see light coming through the door frame and I honestly thought about moving a chair in front of the...

The hotel room was decent for sleeping. The beds were actually comfortable & the room/sink area appeared clean. The bathroom area could of been better, the bath tub appeared run down looking. I didn't shower there. Waited until I got home. This place is ok for a quick overnight sleep. And the room rate should be cheaper. I only stayed...

Room on the 1st floor, next to walkway was noisy. You can hear people walking by or closing their car doors. Shower was run down and the shower head wasn't high enough (less than 6 ft). Also, motel shares part of the parking lot with Motel 6 and there were some shady people outside on the Motel 6. One person...

The room we stayed in was less than adequate for our personal taste. It appeared to be clean until we looked at the shower which had mold in the grout and around the tub grout. We have 2 dogs and had to pay $25 for each dog per night on top of the room rate. Could handle only one night...

We stayed on a Friday night for an early Saturday morning meeting in Durham and thought this a convenient location- a quick in and out with low expectations. The facility is obviously old and located in a sketchy part of town. Our room was dirty: the shower had two colors of mold growing all over it, not just in a...

Great stay, for a great price. Room was in excellent condition, staff was friendly. Property was clean and fully renovated. Breakfast in the morning was hot serviced, and better than I expected. I enjoyed my stay, and I definitely will be coming back for another one.
