We stay here every time we're in the Durham and Raleigh area. The staff is always accommodating and friendly. They are doing some nice upgrades to the rooms which is great. Close to shopping centers and restaurants. Delivery places are pretty good too. They have a laundry facility which is always a plus. Definitely stay here the next time we're...

The Days Inn here in Durham NC was very neat. All the rooms were basically brand new because of the renovation they recently did. I enjoyed the clean bathrooms in the rooms. The staff was very kind to me and fulfilled my every need. The breakfast was also great and I really got my moneys worth.

This motel has a great location, however, the bathrooms were installed in the sixties. This Days Inn heyday has come and passed. The company need to spend $$$ to temporary close this motel (for a season), in order for updates. Even the bath towels were few and dingy.

They advertised as "pet friendly," but when we checked in they charged a $25 fee for our little dog. That's a big fee for a dog that will not leave a mess. Pet friendly places don't charge a fee. Either they're pet friendly or not. This place is not pet friendly. The room was dumpy, but seems clean. Bathroom tiles...

Thank you for staying with us. It would be impossible to raze it to the ground as we have spent almost 2 million on renovations. We are redoing our bathrooms and they are looking awesome. Sorry to read your comments as you had no issues during your stay. We will take care of any issues here.

Drove to NC from MD and was extremely tired. The room was terrible. Dingy carpet, stained door and walls, area above drapes was loose, bathroom tile was stained and loose, tub was grimy, vent looked like a breeding ground for Legionella. Even the comforter had a stain. Nothing like the add picture
