The Holiday Inn Express was recommended to me by a friend and was not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean (there seemed to be a leak in the room and they sent maintenance - they could not do anything right there and then but it was not a problem since we were only staying...

The rooms were excellent and the beds were incredibly comfortable. It was always quiet so getting a quiet night's rest was easy. The rooms were clean and well kept. The staff is very nice and the manger is hilarious. Breakfasts in the morning were nice. Everything was always stocked and staff was helpful if something couldn't be found.

Nothing special about this place. There is no signage from the road to identify it. The free breakfast is uninspired though well-maintained. Parking is cramped. Location is far from other destinations. The outdoor pool is actually in another hotel nearby. The AC is good, rooms are well well-serviced, weekend management not very informed about hotel services. Good bar and restaurant... More

The site is a bit difficult to find. It would be more so at night. We initially went to the Hampton Inn on the same grounds and were directed to this hotel as the Hampton didn't have room for us. The Holiday Inn Express was a good stop for the night. The room was clean and pleasant. The reception person... More

Thanks for providing a great simple solution to business trips in Chapel Hill/Durham NC area. Safe, clean, and reasonably priced. Staff greeted us warmly at check in. This is a repeat stay at this location for me and colleagues. Would highly recommend it for business or family stays in the area.

Front desk employees took the time to know our name and speak to us each evening when we returned from dinner. They were very accommodating when our plans were changing daily even making room for us when they were otherwise full.

While attending a conference at the Friday Center, I Spent 3 nights at the Holiday Inn Express! They were incredibly accommodating. Especially when it came to helping me get from point A to point B.

We have stayed at this hotel many times during the 4 years my daughter was a student at UNC. Each time the service has been amazing. Clean rooms, great breakfast, easy location. I can't thank Jedadiah enough for all he did this last visit during graduation week-end.
