A friend and I traveled from NJ to help my son just moved into an apartment in Chapel Hill. While being somewhat familiar to the area, I was not aware of the Chapel Hill University Inn. From our entrance,into the lobby, I knew it was going to be a fun stay. The decor is a dedication to NC University sports teams and was filled with Tar Heels products and signs. It was a cozy and welcoming lobby where everyone was very friendly. The rate was incredible which made the experience even better. We were placed in a room in the baseball section overlooking the pool. The room was clean and nicely decorated. We did have a problem with the hair dryer but service quickly came up and fixed it.
The hotel is located close to stores, restaurants, and the main stip of Franklin Avenue.
We took advantage of the free breakfast included one morning and found it to be excellent. The girl working was accommodating and made sure we had whatever we needed. There was fruit, cereal, bagels, waffles, and more. We also used the pool our second day and it was so enjoyable. The area provides tables, chairs, pool toys, and towels.
I will definitely be back and will be bringing my 12 year old who I know will love the experience.. You couldnt ask for a better hotel in the area offering the atmosphere, the cleanliness, the friendly staff,, and the great price..
