    Possibly the most disgusting hotel that I have ever encountered. There was a pile of dirty towels outside my door when I arrived. The toilet had not been cleaned in my room or the room where my daughter stayed. My non-smoking room reeked of cigarette smoke. I could go on and on (including the crickets in the room that kept me away at night). I had planned to stay for two nights but left after one sleepless night. A horrible experience.

    The floor was so dirty that we picked up and cancelled our reservation. Showed the manager my foot and she fully refunded our account.

    I forgot that I had been at this hotel several years ago. Not an improvement. Not easy to locate, still looks like a construction site...not very inviting. After waiting to get checked in, my key didn't work in the door and it took several staff to finally get it worked out. Then a staff member came in my room to check for cleanliness. Said new staff working there and things hadn't been done. I did notice dust on microwave, etc and a hand towel was damp, so I wasn't sure about anything. The TV remote was taped at battery location. I ordered a "bag breakfast" for the next morning and got apple juice instead of bottled water. I went to the office and they said they didn't have any. I guess I got what I paid for...

    Horrible

    I didn’t expect a lot and I got less The best thing was the clerk on arrival. I got a 2nd floor room but with awful knees asked about an elevator. Nope. The room was filthy. Had to wash the mirror to see. Towel came back black. Smelled of heavy cigarettes. Laminate floor too dirty to step on with bare feet.

    The facility is old and not kept up well. The former access road is now blocked due to nearby loud construction, and the temporary access road is almost impossible to find the first time. The smoke-free facility reeked of cigarette smoke, especially when the air conditioner was operating. The grounds crew contractors started their loud leaf blowing and weed whacking activity at 6:30 a.m. The swimming pool, lovely in the ad photo is closed and covered over, but no mention made of this during the reservation process. No elevator to the 2nd floor, so travel light! The two positive things to mention: 1. It was one of only 2 hotels in Chapel Hill that had vacancies at the time, and 2. It was RELATIVELY cheap. (You get what you pay for!)

  • 4.0.Fair

    Very disappointing. In past years, this has been a good, low cost place to stay. This time, we had to move twice, before we got a room where most things worked. The first one had no power to TV, microwave, refrigerator, etc. Second room’s air conditioning failed after one night. The third room was okay, but it had only one lamp and no lights that worked from the switch by the door. Key cards usually failed after a couple of uses and often the replacements didn’t work. The desk staff were helpful, but it seemed as if there were almost no maintenance people. It appears the company is letting the place run down. I will not return.
