We had stayed here before because they take dogs, and found the room to be suitable. This time we didn't have the dog, but we chose it because it was a known quantity and was a good price. When we got there, the clerk at the desk was very thorough, attentive, and professional. I didn't catch his name. The first... More

Good staff, nice room for amazing price. Have stayed there twice, plan to stay there again on my next trip to CH. Close enough to things like coffee/Trader Joes/Whole Foods/Trails/Rock Climbing wall and only a quick car trip from Franklin Street/UNC.

We love to read reviews from guests that have made the best of their visits to Chapel Hill and you certainly did! We are indeed just across the street from Starbucks, Trader Joe's, Talbots, Steinmart, shopping and restaurants. You can make the quick drive to Franklin Street or hope on our shuttle for a ride to campus or Franklin Street.... More

I have had very good experiences here. Tony, Charles and Tamika have all been professional, helpful and very friendly at a very stressful time. I found the room clean which is an important factor for me. They not only know their hotel they also are knowledgeable of the area. Any hotel would be LUCKY to have them as employees. I... More

Our room was super cozy and the bed and bedding was awesome. We were there during the blizzard in NC !!! The front desk treated us so well. Called us to let us know the on site restaurant was open even though nothing else was open! We loved it. Room 172. It was great.

The staff (check -in and check-out [Galen]) and visit exceeded my expectations. Although the property was older the rooms were clean, nice and in close proximity to restaurants, shopping the university, etc. I initially chose this property because I was attending a basketball game at UNC and only needed it short term for a place to sleep after the game....
