This was my first trip to NC and I had heard the people were nice but I did not expect them to be this nice! The hotel was a little hard to find at first though. From the moment we arrived I felt very welcomed. Everything was ready and the room was perfect. My favorite part of the hotel was... More

I stayed here as I had a workshop to attend at this hotel. Not somewhere I would recommend to others. The room I stayed in was clean - over looking the pool... which was closed with no water in it! The toilet took forever to refill, (probably at least a good 2 - 3 min to refill). I purchased the... More

Check in was swift, the room was spacious and clean and the bed was the best I've slept in while traveling, all the employees we encountered were cheerful and helpful, I would definitely stay there again!

I first want to thank University Inn for the reduced rate given to us through Ronald McDonald House, as our granddaughter was in the hospital. We really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was very clean, and I loved the large bathtub and the super-comfortable bed. Having a microwave and a refrigerator in the room was most helpful. Both requests... More

The hotel itself is nice enough, but the really great point was the staff. We had a really hectic weekend of coming in late (and after being soaking wet and cold all day) and leaving early, and they were friendly, helpful, and informative about local resources in a comfortable, low key fashion. The guy manning the complementary breakfast Sunday morning... More

From check in to check out we had a pleasant stay! Quiet. Only one level so there was no rooms above or below to create noise. There were many dining choices within 3 miles, some were just across the street. The room had both a refrigerator and a microwave. We slept well in very comfortable beds. Nice place to stay....

My husband and I stayed one night prior to a visit at UNC Hospital. Very clean room with two extremely comfortable double beds. We stayed on a Sunday night, so it was also very quiet. Convenient to various markets (several within walking distance), restaurants, UNC campus, and the hospital. Will definitely book here again. Excellent room, excellent price. Breakfast was... More

Room VERY worn. Upholstered chairs were visibly soiled and light blocking curtains had large holes. This was Carolina graduation weekend and this room was reserved back in January.

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at the Chapel Hill University Inn. We realize expectations were extremely high on Graduation weekend due to high hotel rates in the Triangle region.

I initially booked this motel because it accepts pets (for an additional $40 fee). In the end, I didn't bring my dog. But I was fairly impressed with the motel. It is clean. A little dated, unsecure wifi, mismatched towels (white hand towel, beige washcloth), limited parking, not enough outlets. But clean trumps all of that. We stay in a... More
