Fabulous. Easy. Super convenient. I recommend highly!
Always love the Washington Duke Inn. It is super convenient for visiting Duke and walking around campus without having to use the car. Always friendly and excellent service.

The room was beautiful. Felt very cozy. The grounds are a sight to see. I took an Uber to Duke campus and spent a few hours walking around and walked back. The campus gardens are worth visiting while there. I was there on a business trip and had dinner with a group. THe wait staff were great and the food was delicious. The next day I had a meeting in one of their rooms with a view of the golf course. We had the doors open and got to enjoy all of it. Our breaks were on the terrace overlooking the course. Snacks were the best I've ever had at a business meeting. I was there less than 24 hours but I cannot say enough about this place! Would love to go back.

Room Tip: Even basic rooms are great.

I can't really give this place a bad review, because I think they do some things right. I was there for three days while my son was at a camp in the area. I did check out after the first night though. This is right in the vicinity of the Duke campus. It is an absolutely beautiful area, and the grounds are kept up nicely. There is golf and a spa, neither of which I partook in.
When I checked in, I was in shorts and a shirt (not a t shirt). The young lady that checked me in pointed to the "casual" restaurant behind me, and told me this is where I would probably want to eat. There was no real mention of the other restaurant(s). She also didn't mention the fact that I had a certain amount of money for "incidentals" on the reservation. I don't even know how much I had, or had left over since I only found out after I checked out.
The room and bed were comfortable. No problems with the temperature, or the bedding. The window would not seal, so there was an interesting amount of cricket noise, which made it sound almost like they were in the room.
The view was of nothing special. But again, there was not issues with what I had received.
There was no charge for parking and spots were easy to come by.

We are in a deluxe suite. And it is very deserving of it's name. Wow! Such a great room. Living room, dining room, mini bar, king bed and 2 full bathrooms complete with jetted tub. And it wouldn't be complete without a luxurious robe. Our room looks over the well manicured golf course. All the old world charm you could ever ask for.

My son and I have been going to a Duke Medicine Clinic for 30 years. We decided to stay at Washington Duke Inn for 2 nights during this appointment. We traveled almost 2 hours away from La Grange, NC. To say that we were happy with your Inn and the experience that you provided is an understatement. Your Inn made what was a difficult medical visit more pleasant with your incredible concern that everyone's stay be as wonderful as it could be. Thank you to Octavia for making our reservation, Sean for getting us to the appointment with your shuttle, Lisa who we met in your gift shop, Bryan who delivered our in room dining and Sydney for checking us out. Each and every one was a kind, considerate individual who make this world a better place to be in. Thank you from myself and my son. Your kindness will not be forgotten and we will recommend your Inn to family and friends.
