The room was clean and service was great. I've been going to this hotel for awhile and never had any problem with any of the services. The room's kitchen was also clean. Room service was on point every single time

I was in town for one night and needed cheap lodging. I thought about AirBnB but didn't want to hassle with uncertainty, so I picked this place as the cheapest hotel I could find nearby. It is true that you get what you pay for. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room could have been a bit better.....offered as a...

We could only stay one day out of our pre-booked 1 weeks stay. The bathroom was extremely dirty ,the carpet in the room was sticky, the bed was hard as a brick and to top it all off the toilet stopped up! When I called the front desk to ask them if they can send a maintenance man into our...

The worst!! 2 am fightings in parking lot. Also 7:00 am fighting in front of check in. Room had dry food in carpet. Totally nasty! Unsafe and unclean! The bottom! Never stay here. Obvious rampant drug use of customers. Scary!

It was old, it was not clean. I won't stay again...BUT. The young lady that checked me in was wonderful. It is in a fairly safe and easily accessible part of Durham. From the outside, it looks half decent for an Extended Stay. Once in the room, it was pretty bad.

My entire family got sick after staying at this location for 7 days. The assistant general manager was having a bad day and hung up on me several times, called my room back, and hung up on me again. Got in an argument with me for no apparent reason and cursed me and all. My daughter got eye infections from...

This place is a real dump. It is in a state of dire disrepair. Our room was filthy... I mean truly disgusting. The desk staff were very rude. Other hotel guests were really noisy far into the night. And even though it was supposed to be non-smoking, other guests puffed away and the whole joint smelled baaaaad. HORRIBLE PLACE; it...
