We drove 3.5 hours to stay overnight for a family welcome day at the NCSSM, so we would not have to leave our home at 3:00 a.m. in the morning. I checked the reviews and the prices and was pleased with the information online about Red Roof inn, Duke Medical Center, so I booked a room. In our situation we were only looking for a good night's sleep. The rooms were newly renovated and looked very nice. We arrived around 10:00pm and we had to leave by 7:00 am. Our stay was going to be for less than 10 hours, so what could go wrong?
While the reservation was clearly made for three we had towels for two. SO before we could take showers on our late night arrival, my husband had to tread back to the office, in a not so safe area of town, to ask for towels. We slept in 'small' full sized beds which I thought I could handle for such a short amount of time, but they were incredibly uncomfortable. The renovations, although nice, did NOT include new air conditioners. The outdated, non working unit did not cool the room at all. It did not even circulate the stale air. We slept in a room on a nice April night that was MUCH hotter inside than outside. We could not and would not (for safety reasons) open a window. So the night was miserable! We had a sleepless tossing and turning to get comfortable night instead of the restful night we had hoped for.
