I stayed here in back in 2011, and my stay was so great that when I moved to NC, I recommended this hotel to anyone who would listen. I've since moved again but travel to NC for business and was excited to stay here again. Unfortunately, it did not meet expectations and I'd be reluctant to stay here again with all of the other great options in the area. Pros: Staff is still great, the location has improved somewhat with a number of restaurants now within walking distance (5 guys, Moe's, Applebees, Outback, Bob Evans etc.); decent location between Chapel Hill & Durham and close to I-40, free simple internet. Downsides: my room smelled very musty- it was very strong- I tried to open the windows to get some fresh air in, but they only open about 2 inches. Second, and not the hotels fault, but frankly it ruined my stay in the middle of the night I was awakened by a party on what seemed like every side of me- loud rap music, swearing, doors slamming- this went on through most of the over night. It seems some kind of group was staying at the hotel and they even left their "Youth Build" calling card under my door. I feel like the hotel could have done more about it- admittedly, I didn't call and demand that they do something about it, anyone in that hotel had to be aware of their presence- they really should have been kicked out. The next night was Duke reunions weekend and so it was again, pretty loud though not as out of control. The bed was adequate but not cozy and the tv didn't work great (scrambly picture). None of these things were the end of the world but the bottom line is it was not the amazing stay I had 3 years ago- and frankly for the asking rate of $130-$160 a night, there are better options in the area.
