Not a safe place. Run-down area of Durham, exterior corridor, lots of Mexicans in groups who decided to hang out for extensive periods of the night by my car. The tenants looked homeless. This is one of those rare places where I will forfeit a couple hours of convenience and $100 for a nicer place. It was not even convenient to UNC as the exits on US-15 were completely confusing. Never again.

You get what you paid for. I am not saying this is the best place to stay in but on paper, it's a steal at $40/night. It's close to Duke University. The bed was surprisingly comfortable and the room otherwise clean with a fridge/freezer and microwave. I actually left before the fourth night. This is not a place to go if you have an aversion to tobacco smoke. Despite being a "nonsmoking room" it reeks of tobacco smoke and the invisible fumes appear to eminate from the rooms below and quite possibly from the check-in front desk counter person too. This is two star quality but what gives it the three star level was the front person girl understanding my plight and allowing me to check out early despite pre-paying everything. I hope they get the nonsmoking room problem fixed.

If you're following Kanan Across America ( KananAcrossAmerica.blogs… ) the way you should be, then you know that I stayed at a lot of Motel 6's, but when I found myself in North Carolina I decided to treat myself to a Super 8 stay.
This location delivers on all the things you should expect from a Super 8: Clean room, comfortable bed, and, most importantly, cable TV with Comedy Central. It earned that extra star because I had a very quiet night in a part of town that didn't look so quiet to say the least, also the good folks at the front desk allowed me to check out late b/c I was EXHAUSTED. I had a very nice stay here at a very reasonable rate.
