“Good for the price”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

I stayed for several weeks during treatment at Duke Med Center. The price was very good, negotiated through the hospital. The full kitchen allowed me to cook and save money while I was having treatment. Lots of shopping nearby, restaurants and grocery within walking distance. Friendly staff.

Stayed March 2013, travelled with family

Homestead Hotel on Ivy Creek Blvd Durham N.C.:I am a smoker.so we get a smoking room,but the room when i go in smells so good the air is clean smelling. I can cook our meals that saves us a lot of money,and I am able to take what I need for the kitchen that makes me more comfortable cooking. We have a new flat screen TV,and really all the convenience of home,There internet connection is very good.I for one really do like homestead.The stores are very close if you want to walk to them and there are eating places close by.The only thing I don`t like is the bar I would like to have a table instead but that is the only thing I would change if i could.The air and heat works very good never had problem with it.The up stairs has very nice rooms but we can`t go up and down stairs so the rooms we get are good ones to we are very satisfied .Yes we will be staying again

Room Tip: rooms on south side are quieter and higher floors you don`t have noise over your room.

Excellent accomodations for the price. The Kitchenette is very helpful in reducing meal costs with travel. Staff very attentive, friendly and helpful. Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC uses this hotel for patients, so you know it is good. Have shuttle also to the hospital. Shopping center within 1/2 mile with grocery store and several restaurants.

First off, I am a smoker. So, I got a smoking room, and of course it smelled a little smoky. But that is to be expected. Nice extended-stay room. Had big flat screen TV, a bar, kitchenette, full fridge, stove, microwave, and all kitchenware provided. You could live here, essentially. I got a great deal with my flight on Priceline.com for only $29 per night. Right next door is a supermarket and a CVS pharmacy. Nice.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good. It is nestled in a valley of pine trees away from the road. When you come i...

Basic hotel that is pretty clean. Nice to have a kitchenette. Multiple problems with heating and ventilation systems malfunctioning or not working. A colleage of mine also staying here also had problems with a non-working heating system in their room. Also had a plumbing problem that could not be remedied because of lack of maintenance staff on site. Would only stay here again if I couldn't find another hotel in the area.

We stay at this motel at least twice a year and have always had very good service. They have a great medical rate which helps very much. We travel 200 miles each way just for doctors visits and every cent saved is a plus. The rooms are always very clean and in working order and have free Wi-Fi.

Room Tip: We need a handicap room with walk-in shower which is available.

Check in was fast,friendly and professional, the room was very clean set up very nice we had a full kitchen and stocked with just about everything we needed, such as dishes , pots, pans, and utensils! it was just a pure pleasure to stay at Homestead Suites, my husband is very ill, and we had to go to the hospital in Durham for his treatments and it was very comforting to us to come to our "Home"away from home, also very conveinently located next to a shopping center!

Room Tip: Just look for the Homestead Suites sign you will get a good room!
