Fodor's Expert Review Unscripted Durham

202 N. Corcoran St., Durham, North Carolina, 27701, USA

Once a 1960s motor lodge, this fun and quirky building in the heart of downtown has been transformed into a boutique hotel with a rooftop pool and lots of retro touches. The rooms are bright, colorful, and very '60s mod—but with USB ports, smart TVs, and other modern necessities. The top two floors have exterior corridors and open directly on to the pool and bar area. On the bottom floor, the lobby area is a comfy place to hang out with a coffee or cocktail from the in-house café.
