If you want to stay near Duke campus, stay here. Great service, nice rooms and very reasonable prices. Very friendly staff - would definitely recommend the stay to people who come to Durham to visit Duke. Rooms are well kept and felt like good value for the price. Golf course r is a great design and enjoyable to play

High tea on Sunday or mid week lunch everything was perfect. Service is excellent and the food very good. Generous portions. Beautiful dining room. Delightful menu with something for almost everyone. Save room for dessert-a feast for the eye as well as the palate.

You get what you pay for and though it comes at a price, everything about the Washington Duke Inn is top notch! The staff are all extremely polite and well trained.

We spent three nights over Thanksgiving visiting our son who is a college student. The room was comfortable and opulent but I can't get over the fact that a place like this would still operate a heating or cooling system that is so loud. It was very difficult for me to sleep without heavy duty ear plugs. Every staff member...

The hotel is in a nice secluded location on what appears to be a nice golf course. The hotel is made to look much older than what it really is. Free parking - which is not typically provided at this type of hotel. Check in was quick and easy. The rooms are nice and large with a comfortable bed and...

Went to Duke University to attend an executive course and was arranged to stay there. The room was cosy and everybody was super nice and the front office people even helped me sent my bulky framed certificate home to Singapore.

We arrived after dinner and left before breakfast the next day but I wish we could have spent more time at the hotel. It is beautiful with old world charm. My children enjoyed the hot tub and pool. The gym was nice and the staff very accommodating.

You really can't beat the "WaDuke" in terms of amenities, services, convenience, and quality in the Durham/ Duke area. If you have business at the University, it is within walking distance to all areas of the University on the west campus. Located right off of 15-501, great location. For the leisure traveler, you are located on Duke's golf course and...

We have stayed at the Washington-Duke Inn several times over the years, and each time, our stay get's better. There is a good reason it is called the Washington-Duke INN and not hotel. Although it is fairly large you feel as if you are in a small Inn where you are most welcome and they are glad you are there....
