The staff could not have been more helpful.The rooms were clean and comfortable. The location offers easy access. Anjun, the manager, went out of his way to help me with my reservation. Great place. I'll definitely stay there again.

I was in town to attend a memorial. The staff overheard our need for an easel to display photos and happily offered one from their conference room! What great service. In addition the room was clean and the breakfast service was good. Would certainly stay here again.

I stay regularly at this hotel and can attest that the staff is extremely courteous and friendly. I fancy hard boiled eggs and the proprietor always makes a point to make enough for me in the mornings. She is also always very kind and greets with a smile.

The rooms are of a good standard since the renovation and the location is excellent if you are needing to be near the Hillsborough/Chapel Hill area. For the money and location it is a great choice of hotel.

Greeting Brad K,

Thank you for taking the time to wrie a review. We are honored you enjoy our service and consider us a value. The next time you visit check in with our front desk for steep disocunts at Tanger Outlets and details on a newly opened craft brewery, Mystery Brewing, in town. They are both all the rage.


Many Thanks Again,
Tonya

This is a very nice hotel. The desk clerk Teresa was very friendly, courteous and helpful. Our room was very clean and well appointed. When we went downstairs for breakfast the next morning, we were pleasantly surprised at the freshness and selection provided. The owner came over to chat with us and we found her very friendly and easy to talk to. It is a shame that the city of Hillsborough does not allow for a larger sign on the street. We almost missed this little gem tucked away from I-85.

The hotel is nice, clean, with friendly employees. Good location between Burlington and Durham, right of the highway, but in a quiet spot. Great hot breakfast. It is dog- friendly, but with some limitations. As long as your pet is well behaved and you take responsibility for its behavior, the management does not have any problems with your pet. We'll definitely stay there again.

Dearest Bozena Z,

Wow ! Thanks for sharing how much you loved staying with us. Pet Friendly Hotels are hard to locate in the NC triangle area The rooms we reserve for travelers with pets are special. We do love our furry family members. Hope to see you soon.

All the Best,
Tonya.

Location is good in a quaint town. I come for business to avoid a long morning commute from southern NC. No refrigerator was present as advertised. I came prepared with meals for following day but the food spoiled because I had no refrigerator. I was awake all night. Air conditioner was on intermittently and very loud. I turned it off and suffered the warmth of a humid August night. There was a loud humming noise from an unknown source. I left a note on the night stand dated and written at 2:30AM. I hope you received the note. This was my first bad experience at this hotel. I will give you another try. Hope you can live up to your past service.

Dear Peggy K,

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review on your stay. It is unfortunate that this visit was not 100% satisfactory for you due to the air conditioning system malfunctioning and unavailability of refrigerator in your room. We will discuss your comments accordingly with our team to consider for upgrades needed.

Once again, thank you for your feedback and my apologies for the shortcomings.

Sincerely,

Pam G
