For DUKE freshman move-in time, the two days that the four of us parents and godparents spent with Colin and Deanna, staying in the Crews and Womack Rooms, were just plain great. First, the Inn is a destination in itself, as two of us returning guests were able to show the two first (but not last) timers. Staying with Innkeepers Deanna and Colin is like weekending with generous friends who live beautifully and think of everything. Second, the Inn's proximity to Duke's East Campus means no on-or-near campus parking issues; one just crosses Buchanan Street and the East Campus lawn to get to any dorm or other East Campus location and, by taking the East-West Campus Bus, he or she can get anywhere on West Campus or in-between, such as The Nasher Museum of Art (tip: enjoy lunch there; the menu, new just this week, is phenomenal and reasonably priced to boot) and the Sarah P. Duke Gardens. And last, the first-floor sun porch is special after sundown, when the cicadas' love song and the whistles of distant trains punctuate late-night conversations.

We stayed in the Watts room which was bright and beautifully decorated. It was an easy walk to the Duke campus or some of the great restaurants in Durham (Scratch bakery and the Fishmongers were favorites). The service at the Inn was warm and friendly and the breakfast was delicious.

This is far from your typical B&B. Get ready to be wowed if you have the opportunity to stay here. Every room is unique, tastefully decorated and equipped with the latest gadgets. Attention is paid to every detail. Our stay was delightful and so relaxing.

My daughter and I stayed at this gorgeous hotel last summer and can't say enough grat things about our room and the hotel itself. Our room was stunning and extremely clean. Since it is across from the Duke University campus we had a beautiful view. This hotel is modern with an art deco twist. with each room being unique. The rooms are decorated with beautiful wallpapers, in wonderful colors and patters, and fresh clean linens. It has wifi and is wired even through the television and gets an A+ for technology. It is also an energy efficient hotel with all kinds of interesting gadgets that conserve energy. Since we are environmentally conscious this was a bonus for us. No expense was spared. Everything is just right even down to the delicious chocolates we found in our room every night. The chocolates were made by a local chocolatier, Dolly Mama, and the chocolates were phenomenal! The hotel was renovated by a young couple who purchased the property several years ago--everything is new except for the beautiful antiques you'll find in the common areas. This was formerly a home for women whoses spouses had passed away-the history is heartwarming. Don't stay anywhere else in Durham-this is the best they've got.

Room Tip: Go online to look at the rooms in advance as each one is unique.
