I was here recently for a conference and the property and rooms are beautiful. The food is excellent. I think mainly people stay here to visit the Duke campus or attend a conference. It is set off by itself, nothing is walkable. You will need a car to get around.

Upscale golf club with meeting space. Everything is clean and works well but limited offerings beyond the golf. Fair walking trails. Adequate (but not more) pool indoor only (?). Banquet food is - well, banquet food; adequate but not interesting or imaginative.

My room overlooked the driving range and rooftop of convention center. Nice view, except for the rooftop..I was in room 456. Room was lovely and very comfy. AC unit worked great, but it was noisy. It actually worked out well- no hallway noise. Love the Kuerig in my room. Beautifully decorated..bathroom was not cleaned thoroughly ..found previous occupants used soap left on wall and body hair in the bottom of the bathtub...yuk!
Love the location....great place to walk from if you want to check out Duke's West Campus.
There is a very popular walking trail that circles the property. Perfect walk in the woods..I even came face to face with a grazing doe.
The golf course is beautiful and perfectly kept...looks challenging, but lovely at the same time..
Indoor pool, fitness center all are nice.
We especially enjoyed breakfast on the terrace in the morning...great way to start the day...

Dear BBB2013,

Thank you for taking your time to share your comments regarding your recent visit to the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club. We are pleased to hear that many aspects of your visit were positive, though we sincerely apologize for the housekeeping issues you encountered. Please be assured that this is not our standard of service and we have addressed this with the team appropriately. We have also addressed the issue of the noise from the AC unit in room 456. Unfortunately, the next guest might not find the same silver lining in the noise, so thank you for bringing this to our attention.

We are very happy that the location with regards to Duke University and the Al Buehler trail around the property made your trip one to remember.

Thank you again for your valuable feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Sincerely,
Anna Marie Lawson
Director of Special Services
