Swim gang all took up residence this past weekend at this hotel. Was a great place to stay. Rooms were nice. The staff were very accommodating to our group and I am so thankful for that.

The hotel wasn't actually THAT bad, but it had one major flaw. Our bathroom reeked to high heavens! It smelled like a foul combination of methane and sulfur arising in a rank, hideous cloud from the toilet and sink. We were not sure if the water in Chapel Hill normally smells this bad, but it seemed to mostly be a...

We stayed at Holiday Inn Express Chapel Hill this April, and had a pleasant experience there. The hotel isn't that centrally located, but I do find the free shuttle bus service helpful to explore the area. Check-in was efficient and the staff was kind enough to check me in early. The room is basic but clean, and features two comfortable...

I stayed for one night here while interviewing in the area. The hotel was clean. There was sweet tea available in the lobby and late-night pancakes. It was close to I-40 and only a short trip to the airport. A bit of a drive to Duke but not very far from UNC Chapel Hill.

Jeff at the front desk was so nice and accommodating. He gave excellent directions and advice about area restaurants. Much appreciated. Very nice room. Iced tea and coffee in the lobby and Keurig in the room. Location was great, safe area and close to UNC.

My friend had to have surgery hence my week long stay in this facility. This hotel was booked through Med Stay to get a reduced rate for the stay. That being said we probably had one of the worse rooms in the place. Room was clean and bed was very comfortable room had a microwave and small fridge which was...

The hotel is close to I 40 but far enough away for it to be relatively quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the room as both clean and comfortable. Even though my room was close to the elevator, aside from an occasional door closing, I did not hear any noise. Breakfast is a good option here - multiple...

I enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn Express, but I arrived at night and couldn't find it! Even with a GPS, I kept driving past it. It turns out that the sign for the hotel is located a bit off the road and obscured by trees. Here's a helpful hint: If you see a Hampton Inn nearby, use their...
