No bells or whistles here but that was ok. We only needed to sleep and shower. Served its purpose. Didn't expect much so was not disappointed. Decent for the price. The cost of stays closer to campus was crazy high. This was a great bargain in comparison

Place was somewhat clean as it could be for an old building but the maintenance was crap. Leak spots from above unit floods peeling about 18 inches in diameter, old furniture, reclining chair not cleaned fully opened, crappy towels. Not worth the $80 night but more in line with $50 night. Breakfast pathetic. Should be named Knights Inn and it...

The stay was okay. The bathroom was horrid. There was visible mold in the shower that disturbed me. The occasion bug. Seemed as if the rooms needed to be cleaned everyday regardless if someone was staying in it or not. The breakfast was bad. Things were undercooked & didn't really have a variety.

We have stayed here twice on our trips to Durham. Both times have been pleasant. The staff is courteous and helpful, the room was comfortable. The only thing I do wish is they had a different breakfast. While I like gravy and biscuits, I don't know how the gravy is made, but it is not the best and neither is...

This Days inn made our trip awesome. Rooms are big and clean. They have recently been renovated and seems like they were doing some work at the huge pool. The kids were looking for the opening of the pool. Breakfast was great with sausage,biscuits and gravy and also hot waffles. We will always come back on our regular visits to...
