This a very decent place to stay. It's clean and comfortable and the staff is friendly and helpful. Ask them about places to go nearby and you'll get lots of great suggestions. This place is not modern in appearance but it offers the basics and it is pet friendly too. It is located near Duke University, right near I-40 and you'll easily be able to get to plenty of restaurants in little time.

This place is new (just opened in April after changing ownership), and I think it needs some time to “mature”. When I was there, only about half the rooms had WiFi access and only a few had coffee makers. They are definitely still getting set up. There also weren’t many guests yet and it’s located in a pretty isolated location with open motel-style entrances to the rooms, so I don’t know if I’d feel comfortable staying there on my own just yet. I think if you need easy access to Duke Hospital and are looking for something cheap, it would be a decent place to stay. There’s a pool, grill, and play area, on the plus side. Also, it's convenient that they provide breakfast in the lobby area.
