We stayed here 03/12/17. This is a 60's era two-story motor lodge located just off and alongside the highway, with a bit of a seedy vibe. First cozy amenity was the bullet proof "drive-through" style window along side the check-in. Fortunately, the lobby was open. Check in was a bit slow, as I was behind a group of 6 itinerant...

Beyond what we expected with very fine room, fridge, microwave, and good people at the desk. Breakfast was fine, nothing spectacular, but the place is clean, attractive, and reasonable. Bathrooms are being redone, but ours was just fine as is. This is the best we have seen for the money.

Overall my stay was ok. Convenient to veternal hospital and price was reasonable. Check in staff was nice. Cons were Internet was spotty, tv satellite wasn't working. There wasn't any bad weather in the area. Called front desk and the guy that answered said I think the satellite on your side doesn't work. However, he didn't sound informed on what...

We stay here every time we're in the Durham and Raleigh area. The staff is always accommodating and friendly. They are doing some nice upgrades to the rooms which is great. Close to shopping centers and restaurants. Delivery places are pretty good too. They have a laundry facility which is always a plus. Definitely stay here the next time we're...

The Days Inn here in Durham NC was very neat. All the rooms were basically brand new because of the renovation they recently did. I enjoyed the clean bathrooms in the rooms. The staff was very kind to me and fulfilled my every need. The breakfast was also great and I really got my moneys worth.

This motel has a great location, however, the bathrooms were installed in the sixties. This Days Inn heyday has come and passed. The company need to spend $$$ to temporary close this motel (for a season), in order for updates. Even the bath towels were few and dingy.

Thank you very very much for staying with us. We are totally renovating our bathrooms and putting granite slabs in all of them. Since all rooms were done and its 100 rooms, it should be done in a few months. We cannot close the property as it went through a major renovation and we are constantly upgrading with our economical...
