This hotel is a cross between a motel 6 and a minimum security prison. Drab, cheap room. Foam mattress dented from previous guests. Skimpy towels. Burned out light in bathroom when we arrived. Took a long time to get another room (didn't have the right light bulb to replace the burned out one!). If you stay here over a Saturday... More

I stayed there recently and I really enjoyed my stay. The rooms were nice and the fitness center was good for a reasonably priced hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to stay in the Chapel hill area. The staff were friendly and nice and they were able to meet any of my needs.

We made a quick trip to Raleigh and enjoyed our stay at the Aloft. The bar and lobby area is very inviting and fun. Great service and selection at the bar. We were upgraded to a large corner room with a pretty NC State campus view thanks to SPG Platinum status. Front desk service was friendly and efficient and the... More

It was our first stay at an Aloft, but won't be the last one. It's a nice hotel for a few nights, modern and with nice amenities, such as a bar, lobby with a pool table and a seating pit with TVs and a fireplace. The front desk is without exception friendly, helpful and will take care of any issue... More

Our first stay at an Aloft. It was comfortable and clean; we'd stay there again. Room was decent size with good table top-type storage but no drawers. Only significant quibble with room was that there are no nightlights. If you need to be up in the middle of the night, bring your own light; there are ample electric outlets. Nice... More

When arriving I felt like I walked into a bar/club, not a hotel. Which could be a plus for some. When I checked in the young woman was nice enough, but the desk which was completely visible was a mess. I made my way up to my room and I first look I thought it seemed nice. But while walking...

Booked 4 rooms for out of town friends and family for a recent wedding. The accommodations were fine, rooms clean and appropriately appointed. Restaurant options near by convenient. However, the staff quickly became impatient and unprofessional when we inquired about early check in. When returning at the time we were instructed to do so for check-in, still not able to... More

Quick and efficient check in and friendly staff. My room decor was modern but pleasingly so... Clean and comfortable. This is a contrast to the lobby decor that although modern felt sterile. They also had these colored LED lights on the ceiling so it was disconcerting to see colored dots on the faces of people I was talking to. Cooked... More

My wife and I stayed a night here during our weekend out of town. We should have stayed at a courtyard Marriot and saved $30.00 or $40.00. When we walked in the first thing we noticed was the music in the lobby and lounge area. It was loud. If it was late night at the bar I wouldn't have had... More
