Although an older complex, the room was clean and comfortable. Ken, the owner, was friendly and helpful to myself and others. When the tv didn't work, someone was there w/in five minutes to fix it. Would definitely stay there again.

The sink faucet was hanging off the sink, tub old and dirty with chipped paint inside the tub. Pillow cases had stains as if they were not changed. Holes were found in the wall. Towels and wash cloth looked dingy as if they were washed and reusued too much. Will not stay here again!! Disgusted

Convenient location. Can take a bus to campus if you want to. Very quick to get to campus if you use Uber or Lyft. It was a bit run down, but adequate. The sink and tub were slow to drain. The pool is outdoors - didn't try it on this visit.

I stayed at this hotel for the weekend as part of my children's birthday weekend. I relied on the trip advisor rating of 3.5 to secure the booking.

My husband had an apt at Duke and we decided to come up the day before since we'd never been there. The Days Inn is maybe 5 minutes away from Duke, very convenient. The room was clean and we had a nice quiet stay.

The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Clean rooms with a very comfortable stay and not too far from duke all made this for a perfect stay! I would definitely recommend staying here if you are visiting Durham.

The sheets were not clean and the shower was covered in hair. You could definitely tell that there had been no deep cleaning in quite sometime. I laid on top of the covers and stuck it out until the next morning.

This room was such a bad smell and dirty it made me retch. We arrived after a 12 hour drive at midnight and no other rooms available - we had pre booked months ago. The man assured me it was freshly cleaned etc The room was so disgusting I slept on the sheet dressed in my clothes. The shower and... More
