“Clean but a few issues”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2011

This Hampton is very tastefully decorated and is very clean. Overall my first impression was extremely good. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable. I did have a few issues with the room, and because of these issues on my next visit to UNC I will try the Residence Inn, the Aloft, or the Courtyard. The biggest issue is the soundproofing of the rooms. Anytime someone walked down the hallway talking, the sound carried in the room loud enough to wake me up, in addition I was able to hear the ice maker 30 steps down the hall, and a baby crying in numerous occasions in the room next to me. This hotel is definitely geared towards the business traveler because the pool is the size of a postage stamp, there is no hot tub, and the fitness center is less than desirable. If you are traveling with children, you may want to consider one of the hotels that has more to offer.

This is a typical Hampton Inn. The room was clean and the people behind the desk were friendly and efficient.

We stayed here for two nights and wer very pleased. Our room looked brand new, with the exception of what looked like extremely lumpy beds when we first arrived. Those lumps turned out to be the down in the comforters which had separated into small mounds, but that didn't affect anything in terms of sleeping. The beds were perfect for us - so comfy! We didn't use the pool or fitness room, but they looked ok, just not too big. We loved, and were surprised by, the guest reception which is held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Veggies and dip, chips and salsa, trail mix, snack mix, fruit, wine beer soda. Amazing! Breakfast was nice - make your own waffles, Danish, cereals, yogurt, pre made omelets and French toast sticks and more. Kept the kids very happy. Lastly, we appreciated the free shuttle to the campus of Chapel Hill. It took us right to the door of Admissions and saved us from paying from parking and the walk to the building. If our son goes to school here, we would be happy to stay here when visiting.

This Hampton is in an excellent location for college campus visits to UNC or Duke. Otherwise it's pretty much like most Hampton Inns. Rooms and common areas were clean and comp breakfast had the usual. Pool area was small but didn't see anyone using it so guess size doesn't matter then. Not much in the way of restuarants in the immediate area but a good variety within a short drive of the hotel. Would stay here again.

We stayed just one night. The hotel room was pretty decent. The bathroom was clean. The tub was not as clean as I would really like it to be. The tub had a bath math which I didn’t like being in the tub because I don’t think it ever gets that clean in a hotel. The water pressure in the shower was very good. The bed was comfy. The towels were quite thin. There was a small fitness room, business center and an outdoor pool. The breakfast was very good. The morning we ate breakfast we had sausage patties, French toast sticks and scrambled eggs. There was the traditional cold cereal, waffle maker and juices. The front desk staff was pleasant. The hotel was very close to Univ. of North Carolina Chapel Hill about a 5 min drive. Would stay there again and bring my own towels! Oh and the wi-fi was free and worked pretty good.

Was in town to visit UNC and Duke. The hotel is convenient to both campuses. Was put into a suite that was huge for the price, yet was well appointed with all of the needed amenities. Hotel offered a manager's bar and snacks in the evening with beer/wine. The breakfast was excellent and well stocked with plenty of space in the dining area. Lots of choices to get good, inexpensive meals in the area.

I stayed here for 1 week for business in January 2011. It was your typical Hampton Inn - clean, comfortable, good location. The best thing about the hotel was its outstanding service. The front desk people and manager were incredibly helpful in making my stay great. Do not hesitate to ask them something because they will help you! The only reason why I didn't give this 5 stars was because of the hot water. There was a big group of us on the same schedule, so many people were taking showers near the same time. 4 out of 5 days I had a cold shower. Fix the hot water and you get 5 stars!
