I booked this hotel for two nights for my sister and her boyfriend. We "attempted" to check in at the front desk and when I say "attempted" it's because the TWO front desk employees were conversing amongst themselves as we stood there waiting for them to acknowledge us. When it had been long enough, the man looked up and just...

This is a decent option in Durham, NC. Let me tell you that, if you are looking for luxury then this is not for you. But if you are a person who needs a clean room with decent amenities then this is a good place for you. The WI-Fi is good, you can upgrade to a faster network if you...

This property has so much potential. I stayed for a week and the staff was friendly, helpful and kind. The facility overall needed a little work but the price was reasonable for Triangle Park. The location was ideal for movies, restaurants, and getting acquainted with the area. I had a job interview on my last day and the hotel allowed...

This is a very nice property and it is a shame that it is not better taken care of. To start with, we requested and were given a "non-smoking" room. Upon entering the room it reeked of fresh cigar. A damaged smoke detector was found on the kitchen counter with fresh ashes in the bathroom sink and a partially smoked...

Absolutely atrocious service. There is no room service indeed. Some lights not working, one of the toilets is getting flooded. Been following up with front desk, who are extremely rude. Staying here for a few days for my business, but definitely will not recommend to anyone. Absolute mess and pathetic. Would have given ZERO rating, if it were available.

After calling the desk - advised they had no sheets to fit a queen bed, brought king sheets to try and wrap around mattress. No hairdryer at all, not even from desk. Desk attendant laughed when I askef for a hair dryer....

Terrible. I would never stay here again. Total review of zero. This was a very bad experience. I do not know how a chain could operate under the circumstances. I think I will report this to the hotels boards and the better business bureau.

Welcoming and pleasantly better than i expected. Excellent value with awesome staff. Byo breakfast, though....the one provided needed more variety and condiments.... Over all, i was comfortable, slept like a baby, and had every need met with a smile. Felt almost..idk..neighborly.

I reserved a non-smoking room but was given a smoking room. Had the guy at the desk bothered to ask, I could have been given a non-smoking room because the place had plenty of vacancies. It took 2 requests and many hours to finally get cups and glasses so I could at least get a drink of water. I find...
