We booked several rooms for our daughters wedding party and were treated fabulously throughout the weekend. We could not have asked for better service and accommodations from the staff and management. Would highly recommend this Holiday Inn Express as we will be returning in the future again!!! Exceptionally clean rooms and superior service.

We've stayed here several times recently while visiting specialists at UNC Chapel Hill. Most recently we stayed here a couple of nights while my husband was having outpatient surgery. Home is 3.5 hours away and we were unsure of how well he could travel after surgery. We chatted with the guy at the front desk (sorry didn't catch his name...

I have stayed here several times and never had any problems. I have observed others with issues, but the issues were generally resolved. Breakfast is better than expected. Parking is limited, but the adjacent hotel parking is also available. Fitness room is tight. Quality is good overall.

Had a light go out in my bathroom, the front desk tried to fix that night, however was unable and they fixed right way the next day. Breakfast had many options and the rooms with Keurigs.

No bells and whistles, but this hotel gives you what you need. A safe and clean place to stay with polite and helpful staff. If you are looking for a cheaper place to stay still close to Chapel Hill, this is it. My sister and I were traveling alone and felt safe and comfortable here.

Our extended family had an excellent stay here. They made sure our rooms were close to each other- a big plus. Breakfast was good (my daughter was thrilled with the pancake machine). The front office staff could not have been more attentive, helpful and friendly. Kudos and thanks to all of you!

The room was quiet and very clean with comfortable beds. Will definitely stay here again when in the Chapel Hill area visiting friends and attending events in the area. The family really enjoys going to UNC football games and it's so nice to have a nice place to sleep after a long day.

Very conveniently located near major business parks and few miles away from University campuses. Staff is very supportive. Good place to stay if you are looking for an affordable option at Chapel Hill. The ambience and rooms are ok.

Difficult to find as there is no sign on the road. Was in a hurry to a wedding and having to search for hotel was not in our plan. Plus shower needs work, water in the floor as shower curtain was about to fall down . Peeling wallpaper. Too much money for a place that is run down.

Stayed four nights in August when taking my daughter to school at UNC. The hotel is difficult to find -- desperately needs signage on Farrington!
