Nice and clean - good soaps and towels and beds, etc. was very pleasantly surprised.
Have stayed in other Marriott properties that are “4 stars” and were pretty equivalent to this place at 3 stars. Worth every dollar.

Best place to stay as the area is very competitive price wise. Best customer service. I wish free breakfast for all customers. The pool was closed as it was outdoor and it was winter. Rooms are very spacious, clean with no smell. Restrooms are also very clean with in the room and corridors. I would love to stay here if visited the area again.

Staff was very helpful and professional. Gave me suggestions on places to go. There's a shopping center across the street which has a Walgreens and various places to eat and a nail salon. There is a pool in the back and most rooms have a little balcony where you can sit.

Great clean and spacious rooms. TVs allow you to sign I to Netflix and other accounts. No continental breakfast and bathtub was really narrow.

The only reason I am giving this property 4 stars is because the staff was extremely friendly... this hotel needs some serious upgrades. While I can't say my room wasn't clean, everything appeared so old and run down. The bathtub was extremely small, my toilet kept running, and the bed has seen its day. Someone tried to get in my room at the middle of the morning, and it sounded as if the people next door was in my room all night. To my knowledge this is the only Marriott property close to Duke, as I'm a rewards member. I'll definitely do more research before my next visit to see if there's other options for accommodating me during my business trip.
As I mentioned before the staff really appeared to enjoy their jobs. The young man working in the restaurant during breakfast was the friendliest person I've seen in a while. Not sure what his name is, I know he was working the morning shift and said he is still in high school.

Hotel was clean, and was in a safe location and close to Duke. However, I booked this hotel because the website said that there was a free shuttle to and from campus. I called a few days before my arrival to confirm the shuttle and the front desk assured me that there would be a shuttle. When I got to the hotel on a Friday afternoon, I asked when the next shuttle for campus left, and the lady at the front desk said that there "really wasn't a shuttle today." So, then I asked what time it started leaving for campus the next day, and she said it was only M-F (understandable, but just wish they could make this clear). All in all, my stay was fine. The AC unit was very loud ad kept me up one night, but other than that and the shuttle it was a nice hotel. The Uber to campus was about $8 every time. For anyone who was wondering.

We stayed here for three nights out of the blue when visiting friends who came down with the flu. Wonderful little hotel! Everything very clean, seemed relatively newly renovated, nice room design, queen bed with modern curved sofa that pulled out, super shower/water pressure, even nicer than usual artwork that someone took time to choose. The staff was extremely friendly, the linens better than some fancy hotels we’ve been in. Decent little bistro w Starbucks coffee downstairs and walking distance to several reasonable restaurants (we liked Pomodoro). Highly recommended and not expensive.

The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. An indoor pool and hot tub would be better (and more what I'd expect from a Courtyard property). I was a little disappointed with housekeeping. Mostly a good job but the vacuuming could have been better and they didn't replenish the hot beverages. There was also a slight musty smell in the room. Not overpowering at all, but it was there. The price was good compared to other properties nearby.

Haven’t written review in a long time.
Hotel super clean. Price very reasonable.
They even were cleaning elevator walls.
Beds so very comfortable and staff so nice
So close to Duke 7 minutes away

This was a very nice hotel and we enjoyed our stay. It’s in a great location right next to the highway and close to amenities like restaurants and a gas station. The staff was very friendly and honest about the rates (book online for a better rate vs. in person). The room was very clean and maintained. Nice to have a cafe on the main floor. The fitness room was also clean and had the basics to get in a good workout.

Great customer service! Rooms are nice! Only problem is the tub/showers have a rounded floor...you cannot stand flat in shower...dangerous.

That staff was extremely friendly and tended to our needs. Hotel is close to downtown and Duke Hospital. However, the two rooms we stayed in on the first floor smelled like mold. Sure enough, my Mother and I both got sinus infections after our stay (we’re both allergic to mold). The rooms (at least our rooms) need a deep cleaning.

I was given a very large very nice two room suit. Nice for this level hotel. Great outdoor patio with a fire pit. Full bar with cocktail hour snacks.

This place was amazing! The staff was so friendly and helpful! They recommended places for me to eat that were phenomenal! Every staff member had a smile on their face and were so accommodating. I was told they are about to renovate their lobby (which was already very nice and clean!) And I cant wait to see the new look! I highly recommend staying here. The rooms were clean and the food was great! I wont ever stay any place else in Durham.

Great place to stay if you have appts at Duke Medical. The hotel provides a shuttle service for all areas of the Duke medical system. Very close if you choose to drive yourself too. The room was clean and the front desk is very accommodating.
