The owner made my "last minute" reservation process easy and then was able to accommodate an extra night. The first floor living area has a well supplied kitchen and it was a "comfortable" venue for spending the evening (dinner, visit) with my son. It is a very convenient but quiet location and a real treat was the easy access to... More

I stayed there around end Oct 2014 while visiting my son at UNC. The entire booking process and communications with the owner was very smooth; Eric responded very prompted to questions raised. The hotel is located a good 15- 20 minutes walk to UNC but the walk was very pleasant at this time of the year. The furnishings (in Unit... More

- Quiet residential setting, apparently low-key and safe. - Trees and greenery, no massive parking lots as is often the case with motels. - Away from street traffic. Quiet neighbors (many seem to be associated with UNC). No local commercial traffic or noisy garbage pickup at 5 AM. - At same time, restaurants and retail within walking distance. - Short,... More

Eric was the best host ever! The level of hospitality was astounding. We had an amazing stay: it was super cozy, relaxing and very comfortable. The apartment is exactly as the photos show. It's at a really convenient location, it is a minute away from restaurants and a block away from a beautiful forest trail. Eric was also very helpful... More

We really wanted to like this place but it did not work out. Pros: quiet area, good WiFi; big washing machine and dryer; nice deck to sit on and enjoy the trees, pretty location, parking available. Easy drive to downtown Chapel Hill and UNC. The surfaces in kitchen and bathroom were clean. Bed was fine. Manager was helpful and provided... More

We are sorry that this guest did not enjoy our facility as much as most of our other guests. We do have an occasional "ding" here and there, but we honestly don't feel that the minor concerns raised justify a 2-star rating. If you look at our numerous other reviews, most of them are 4 and 5 star ratings. We... More

Chapel Hill Inn Town is our favorite place to stay when we visit our daughter in Chapel Hill. The location is perfect. Walk to Franklin St. and there is a path to Foster's Market and Flyleaf Books. It is not a luxury apartment but it is clean, comfy and has a well equipped kitchen including washer and dryer. Being able... More

My family -- three kids of various ages -- along with wife -- stayed here over thanksgiving weekend while visiting my bro and his family, who work at UNC. Because he lives near UNC we could literally walk both to UNC campus (we saw a play and a women's soccer game), and his home to burn off some of those... More

Chapel Hill for me has always been an intellectual oasis in a rural countryside. A beautiful university a bit in the middle of nowhere. Sure, it's changed a lot since I was growing up here in the 80s-90s but that is the foundation. These condos are like everything I equate with my childhood. Not glamourous, not luxurious, not fancy.

Thank you for your review, which emphasizes our goal of providing reasonably priced, furnished apartments within walking distance of the University of North Carolina campus. You are correct that Chapel Hill has changed dramatically since the 80's. I have lived here since the 70's, and Chapel Hill has grown from a small sleepy college town to a vibrant community of...

My family paid for three nights in November but stayed just one night and forfeited the money we paid for the other two nights. The apt seemed clean but the furniture, bed linen, towels and carpet were very worn. Bath towels were small and very thin. The bed comforter was old and faded. Stairs were steep. Heater had problems.

Stayed here for three weeks whilst I visited the University of North Carolina for research. I found the apartment very cosy. It was clean and had a range of amenities including a washer sand a dryer, in addition to the standard stove, refrigerator and microwave oven.
