The hotel is very nice located across the street from Duke Hospital. We have spent many nights in this hotel while my daughter was under going treatment at the Children's hospital. The rooms are large and spacious they just finished remodeling the hotel and it's extremely nice.

The staff were very helpful and the room was nice and clean. No shuttle or free breakfast due to Covid-19 rules.

I will be staying at this hotel from now on. The people are welcoming and so friendly. The room was large enough to get my electric wheelchair in. The best part is the Bed. It was fantastic and I slept like a baby. And I am 70 years old and that's been hard to do for years. Oh and they also have breakfast for you. Love this hotel 😍❤️❤️

We were pleasantly surprised. The room was nice and big, the bed was firm and comfortable. The only disappointment for us was the size of the bathroom and the fact that the sink was outside the bathroom. Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel has done a lot of updating which is nice but the parking situation is awful. Not enough spaces for all of the guests. Your only other option is to pay to park in the parking garage and that is ridiculous at $8.00. The staff are wonderful. Just wish they had better parking options.

It's a hotel. Nothing fancy, but the rooms are clean and nice. It's a block-and-a-half from the hospital and free parking. You can spend a couple dollars more and stay at better places, but it's not bad.

We were only here for one night but got a great nights sleep. There was plenty of counter space by the bathroom sink for all toiletries and again around the corner by another sink and microwave. The room was good size and clean. Parking was convenient and plentiful. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Showing this as a 2 star facility does not do it justice! It exceeded our expectations! Facility was clean, bedding comfortable, rooms spacious and nicely furnished, and staff welcoming and friendly. To top it off, shuttle is not only available for hospital transportation, they also took us to dinner and picked us up afterwards. Parking is tight; this is a city!

Not the fanciest or most modern, but very clean and well maintained. I cant really explain why I enjoyed staying here so much other than, it just hit right. The vending machine got stuck so I had to buy an extra PayDay but, who doesn't need 2?

Great hotel, especially if visiting for medical purposes (ask about the discount). Extra large room with plenty of space to spread out. Firm beds, with nice crisp and clean sheets. Tiny bathroom, but clean. Very friendly staff. Light but adequate breakfast. Parking can be a pain, but it wasn't awful. Our 2 yr old son had a great time in the rocker and lots of room to run after the long drive. Quiet rooms, never really heard the other guests on our floor. Will definitely stay again.
