Treated me like a king from the minute I arrived, stayed and left. The location is smack in the center of Durham so one cannot complain. It is just a perfect place to stay, reasonable price and I did not want to leave.

On weekends, there is a free lot directly across the street from the hotel. There was a lot of street parking available as well, no issue at all.
