My son said the room smelled of smoke. He wouldn't stay there again. I booked it without seeing it. Not cheap. Room was small. He was visiting Duke university. I wanted a place near by. He only spent the night.

We mainly stay at Days inn properties when travelling. This Days was very very well maintained with brand new granite furniture and the whole room was renovated. It was a very very clean place. We also had a room with a brand new bathroom which was awesome. The manager was very friendly and helped with all our needs. Great breakfast...

Everyone you read about the bathrooms is true. Our door was so warped it wouldn't shut and the bathroom itself is a solid 2 star - just a little unpleasant but it worked. But if you take the bathrooom out of it - the room is spacious and clean. The bed was one of the most comfortable ones I've slept...

As soon as I entered my room I noticed a horrific smell, that would not go away, I immediately notified the manager who was still sitting at the front desk, that perhaps there was a dead mouse or something else dead somewhere, that would cause it to smell so foul, I also expressed that there were knats, and small insects...

The thermostat was set on 90 degrees and blowing wide open when the door was opened. I expect it was an attempt to dry the soaked carpet. The bathroom was a disgrace After wiping the tub, my wife still had to wear her sandals and sit on a towel to take a bath. The smell was just bearable. Walking from...

The beds were clean and comfy, but that's where the list of good things stops. The room was dirty and it was clear that they had given the room a thorough cleaning in quite sometime. I found garbage and wrappers left in an easy to clean corner of the room. The bathroom was adequate, but there were numerous gaps in...

I honestly enjoyed my stay here. The service was great and the property was very clean. The staff was very kind to me. The breakfast was also hot and tasty. The property was also newly renovated and had everything a room should have. I will definitely be back again soon.

The service was prompt and courteous. Breakfast was sufficient: yogurt, egg, sausage and waffle. Internet worked just fine. The campus was aesthetic. And the room was comfortable! Great for a quick pit stop.
