An inexpensive hotel option near Duke University's Hospital and a couple miles from the main campus, this Hampton Inn is a decent representative for this reliable chain. Because it's located just off of Interstate-85, we recommend requesting a room on the building's north side to avoid muffled traffic noise. Don't fret if you're stuck on the south side, Comfort is far enough away from the highway that it shouldn't ruin your zzz's.
Along with standard floor-plans and furnishings, Hampton guests receive a litany of freebies including complimentary in-room high-speed internet access, free wireless connections in the lobby, gratis morning breakfasts, free local calls, comped coffee and tea served around the clock. There's a formidable gym with a treadmill, an elliptical, and one upright bike, but nothing that stands out.
Swimmers, this part of town is devoid of any desirable lap options.
