La Quinta Inn & Suites University Area Chapel Hill
Ranked #7 of 71 Hotels in Durham
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 5, 2012

This hotel was recommended to us by a friend who often travels to the Chapel Hill-Durham area. Our experience here could not have been more positive. Great value, clean even elegant appointments for a mid-price hotel, excellent location for anyone traveling for business or pleasure to Chapel Hill or Durham. We will return here when next we have business at UNC.

This hotel is in a convenient location right off the highway. The staff are very professional and responsive. The one bedroom king (with sofa sleeper) proved to be an okay space for me and my two children (7, 11) for the week we were there. It was clean for the most part but very basic, no amenities, and hard towels. The room layout was odd with the tv situated to the right of the bed and desk, but facing the sofa. I guess it doesn't matter since it could be rotated. The small room fridge and microwave made breakfast and snacks easy. We opted out of the hotel breakfast due to time, it was also basic and we don't rise early on vacation. More attention could be paid to the laundry rooms and pool area. They were both frequently unclean/cluttered in appearance. But this could be due to the fact that it was very busy the week we were there. Overall the price matched what we got.

As my wife is wheelchair bound (multiple sclerosis), I always read reviews with an eye to accessibility. Most hotels/motels and restaurants state they are ADA compliant, bout for many, it is only a token claim. On the other hand, there are those, like this La Quinta, which live up to their assertion.

The rooms here are clean and well maintained. There is plenty of room for a wheelchair, even in the bathroom, and we were very pleased. Breakfasts are standard fare (waffles are good!) for La Quinta, and the dining area was very clean. If you have mobility issues, you need not be concerned staying here.

One unadvertised plus: a decent Red Lobster right next door.

La Quinta has made great strides in the past few years improving their appeal. This is one I highly recommend.

Room Tip: Park at the ends as it is easier entrance.

This property is a great value for the money. The location is very convenient to I-40, Chapel Hill and Durham. The desk staff was very kind and helpful. Our room was clean, quiet and actually had a nice view of the tree canopy behind us. The bed was super comfortable!!! The complimentary breakfast was good; gotta love the fresh waffles. Just wished they offered a protein other than hard boiled eggs.

Try Sitar, the Indian restaurant down the street. Awesome dinner buffet!

Room Tip: Ask for a room over the courtyard, not looking over the road.

As a single woman traveling with a pet I could not ask for a better place to stay. I was greeted warmly and my request for a room at the end of the hall was done with a smile. The room was very clean,cool, and met all of my expectations. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
