I have been coming to Holiday Inn Express because of medical appointments at UNC Hospitals. The beds were comfortable. Liked the fact that the room was equipped with a refrigerator and microwave. Shower was great. Also liked that I could open the window a little. It was handy that the motel had a shuttle to UNC Hospitals. Employees were friendly.... More

great room, quiet and clean and booked via medstay with a great rate. wasn't a planned trip so a rate of $74 per night helped my budget for this unexpected 5 day stay. breakfast was a bit disappointing but nothing horrible could have had premade omelets cooked longer and the meats too. staff very helpful

What an experience! I arrived to discover that I had been selected as guest of the day. A small treat bag was in my room but the best part was the staff. Cynthia Flowers and Patrick Dewberry were wonderful! They made me feel special throughout my whole visit. Breakfast was good, hotel was quiet and room was large! Thank you!

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.
