My son and I were traveling home and got tired, so we booked on one of the discount hotel booking sites and got a pretty good rate here. The front-desk clerk was very friendly and efficient, check-in was fast, the room was comfortable and mostly quiet (other than people in the halls, but wasn't too bad). The room was clean,...

On my way to Duke University Medical Center for work on my knees, Comfort Inn University in Durham couldn't be closer, or more compassionate, offering transportation from the hotel to your appointment, fantastic.

This is a nice hotel but it has faults. The breakfast is only fair and the wifi or lack of it can be very annoying. We spent a week on the 4th floor and there often was no hot water or it was very very slow to come out. On the plus side the room is large with a very...

I stayed here in October in the stay was pretty good. This time, not so much. Lots of maintenance issues and lack of cleanliness. I reported them and they said that they were due for an eight year renovation. Fitness room had some equipment that had not been calibrated.

We wanted to see the UNC and Duke Campuses, so this hotel was in the perfect location. It's right off I-40 and halfway between the two campuses. The location was fantastic! Though the building was non-smoking, our room smelled very strongly of smoke. Maybe our room needs a paint job and new carpet for the smell to go away.

Very handy location near intersection of I-40 and US Hwy 501. The room with queen bed was clean and comfortable with extra easy chairs, WIFI. Staff were friendly and informative. The breakfast was as usual for a Comfort Inn but this is a large 4 story hotel and the breakfast room was completely full each of our 3 days. Maybe...

Stayed overnight so we could go to the "big" game. I loved this place. This place was clean and quite and the employees were all so lind and helpful! Wish we had a couple more days just to relax. I would love to stay here again.

I needed a place to stay as I finished up my time working for Samaritan's Purse on Hurricane Matthew disaster relief. This is important to the review because the volunteer work was extremely physically challenging. So when I got to the Comfort Inn I was exhausted and needed good sleep. That's exactly what I got. Good A/C on top of...

We were in town for a UNC game. It was raining because of hurricane Mathew, so we decided stay the night. The hotel was way overpriced. We couldn't get the phone to work. The carpet was wet. Before we had a chance to get dinner the electricity went out. We waited in the dark hoping they had a generator. No...

I am so sorry that the hurricane caused our power to go out. Our pricing was actual below market value with all the events going on in the area and what other hotels were charging. We were unable to check on our 100+ guest since the phone system was down due to power outage. I am surprised about your bed...

We tried (unsuccessfully) to escape Hurricane Michael from our ocean front home in SE NC. All 3 local colleges had home football games so we paid about 50% inflated hotel rates for Friday & Saturday nights. Comfort Inn is conveniently located near Duke, UNC, I-40 and route 15/501. Free parking. Numerous restaurants, including Outback, and other shopping a very short...
