    Skip this place if you have health issues.
    Was here staying after I had heart surgery prior to driving 3 hours home, it was nothing but issues. Half the carts to take luggage up had flat tires, around 9pm the power went out and there was no communication and no one checked on the medical sensitive guests. I am on oxygen and advised I needed assistance and they said it wasn’t their problem that they didn’t have power. My oxygen is operated by batteries that only last so long. We were stuck on the 3rd floor until the power came back on several around 1:30am. The breakfast area was over crowded and did not have much of a selection. A little bit of communication would have gone a long way.

    Comfortable enough and friendly staff
    Required a place to stay for one night while visiting a friend with recent surgery. Perfect for us, close enough to Duke Hospital (not walking distance though).

    Black Mold Nightmare
    Bathroom was a moldy nightmare. Black mold on the walls and on the framed pictures on the wall. When brought to the attention of the front desk they were very slow to react. Their solution was to soak a towel in vinegar and hang it on the wall. Absolutely ridiculous. The room was a severe health hazard.
