The Brookwood Inn surpassed my expectations! I traveled to Duke University on business. This hotel is within walking distance of the hospital and many other buildings. And if not near…NO problem!! They have a free shuttle that leaves every 30 minutes and will drive you anywhere within 3 miles. Did I say free?? Yes! And the drivers are professional and polite! There are several very good restaurants within 3 miles. We dined at Cafe and El Rodeo Mexican Restaurant. Both good value and great service and yummy food:-). And for breakfast and lunch the Brookwood Inn is a perfect choice! I had one of the best and biggest Chicken Ceasar salad there that I have ever eaten! The rooms here are not luxurious, but very clean and well appointed. And you can’t have too much cleanliness! The rooms have refrigerators, microwaves, coffee makers and hair dryers in the room. They have a small but very useful and adequate fitness room complete with fresh towels and filtered cold water:-). My travel partner utilized the business center and found it very user friendly, convenient and free!! All of these amenities are nice, but without the staff they would mean nothing! The front desk staff is wonderful!! They are most helpful in every way, from getting you the room you requested to giving directions. This small hotel is the whole package! Location, amenities, professional staff and value!! You will not be sorry for choosing Brookwood Inn when your travels brings you near Duke University:-)! vsquared13  via tripadvisor
