Pool, steam and sauna are like a day at the spa! Staff is courteous and helpful. Workout room has large selection of equipment for all types of workouts. And the indoor track is useful in the winter.

Parking lot can get full many times but they have a nice parking garage across the Y although it costs money. This Y is a great place to work out though and usually very friendly staff and a great walking track and fitness center. Locker rooms are also great. 4 stars instead of 5 due to limited parking. Update (3/31/19)- Cancelled my YMCA membership in February which was a shame since I have been coming to this Y for more than 6 years. Will really miss it but it hurts when other people treat me like something is wrong with me. How would you feel if you were treated like an outcast?? Probably not good at all.

The classes aren’t great great. The parking lot is always full so it’s hard to find parking. The locker room always smelled awful and lacked air conditioning. I cancelled my membership 1.5 weeks before my next bill date and they just told me that I had to pay for another month because they said that it’s their policy. The guy was a jerk who I spoke with today. Not happy with my experience here. Do not get on their auto pay or you will never get off!

BEST YMCA I have ever seen and used !! Highly recommend !! Very large facility with tons of services and the cost is very reasonable. I have lived in Iowa, Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina and the Durham downtown YMCA blows away all of the YMCAs I have seen and used. None of them remotely even come close to this fantastic Y.

Y staff needs to enforce the rules regarding underage children in the women's locker room. I visited between 5:30 and 7:00 on a Wednesday evening, usually a busy time for after work traffic. I encountered 2 preschool age boys in the locker room waiting for adults who were either showering or dressing to go. If women don't have the good sense to protect their own children from viewing naked strangers, then someone shoulld remind them that other women sharing the locker room may not want to disrobe in front of underage boys. There's a Y Playhouse upstairs that provides supervised childcare on-site. Staff should see that patrons use it. Why make everyone else uncomfortable?
