The hotel's service was great! Everything there was UNC. We learned a lot of facts and stuff from Sean. Everybody was so nice, and it was very close to the University. We had a blast shopping at Franklin Street, and the food was amazing and cheap. It was a great experience for us and we are confident you will enjoy... More

The room is in a great location near UNC and close to lots of shopping. My room was heated and nice when I arrived- very cold night. The room was clean and the shower ran well. I felt safe. I was very pleased with my stay. Thank you!

I almost hesitate to write this review, lest my ability to get a room at the Chapel Hill University Inn is diminished thereby. I LOVE this property and the Inn's employees, who are almost like family to me. Everyone is so genuine and courteous. The rooms are clean and well-maintained, and everything is properly stocked. The beds are the most... More

During late summer or early fall they have the best places to relax and read, write, or do just about anything else you like to do. There are so many places to... More

I justify this post by saying that I am a Marriott guy. I travel frequently (3-4 times a year) to the Chapel Hill area, and I am such a hotel snob. I know when I stay at Marriott hotels, there is a set of standards throughout the country that I will get. On this trip over the Christmas holiday, I... More

We were in town for one night, and were skeptical when we saw the exterior balcony type entry points to the rooms. Though the building is dated on the exterior, the interior was pleasantly surprising from the lobby to the rooms. The staff was extremely accommodating when fulfilling our request for adjoining rooms. Definitely spring for the "deluxe" room. They... More
