Great hotel! Located right in the middle of the fun. Rooms are spacious, very clean and modern. Beds are very comfy. The staff was very nice! Yes there is music and fun so if that isn't your thing then stay 10 minutes outside of town instead.
Love the complimentary glass of champagne upon check in!

I visited The Patio at the Unscripted, where they have igloos set up for fine dining. It was a great experience and date night!! You can enjoy the scenic downtown Durham and a great meal all while comfortable in your own private igloo. Each igloo can comfortably seat around 6 people with lounge style seating. Plus, the igloos are heated for those chilly nights.

The igloos were so cool! There’s an electric fireplace inside so it’s nice and toasty, and a Bluetooth speaker so each igloo can pick their own music. It was harder than I thought to reach the $50 per person minimum. We ordered almost all the appetizers, one of each dessert, and multiple rounds of drinks for everyone before we hit the minimum, so it was a great value. All the food was delicious. I’d say the Brussels sprouts were my favorite appetizer and bread pudding was my favorite dessert. The spiked cider was really good as well.
Our waitress was really nice and chatted with us a lot. She had good recommendations on food.
I will say that they don’t tell you gratuity is added to the total. They bring you a receipt with just the total and a line to tip. So, if you give a tip, you’re really adding that to the 20% gratuity that’s already included in the final price.

Dined last night in one of the rooftop igloos and it was a fantastic experience. The owner came to talk to us, great guy. The chefs are amazingly friendly telling us about the food. The servers were super friendly and fun too. Now, the food was something else; it was superb. Everything that I tried was delicious. The drinks were different and excellent. Lastly, the ambiance was so cool that we felt that we were home, guaranteed: we will return.

My family and I went for dinner on 11/24 at the igloos at the unscripted. And it was such a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was incredible, the igloos were well decorated and included a heater. We fit a family of 8 people and we’re very comfortable. The food was spectacular and the desserts were out of this world! 10/10 would recommend.

I’ve only gone to the outdoor bar but I’m in love with the fun vibe and great views. This hotel looks amazing and pushes that 1960s decor to the hilt. If you are looking for a perfect night out in Durham you can’t do better than hanging by the pool and sipping a cocktail overlooking the city.

Friendly staff, wonderful accommodations, great common spaces like the lobby and patio. The food and drinks at the patio (with a pool!) were delicious, the lobby space is great for meeting, relaxing or even working. The rooms are spacious and modern. Highly recommend!

The hotel room was very nice and comfy. The food at the patio was delicious. The location is right in the middle. We walked around and enjoyed the night life and live music. The only complaint I have is the hotel only allowed a late check out of 30 minutes after the normal checkout time. Other than that our stay was good.

Fun place to stay, amazing location with many fantastic restaurants and bars within walking distance. We enjoyed a late night chilling by the pool and listening to the DJ.
I would recommend one of the rooms away from the pool otherwise you will not be able to escape the noise. 433 was great.
If you want a quiet place do not stay here, this is a more social hotel.
We will be returning.

This place is pretty cool. My husband and I stayed the night and it was nice. You get free coffee in the morning in the lobby. My only problem is that they charge $20 for parking a day when the parking garage alone charges $15. This is the only hotel I've even been to where I had to pay for parking. They should at least give their guests a deal at like $10 a day.

Last night my friends and I Celebrated my Retirement by meeting there by the pool for dinner. The food and drinks were very good. The service was Awesome. Our server was Brittany, she took care of all (10) of us. The DJ played some great 🎵. Thanks
