Should we stay in Chapel Hill or Durham?
I'm partial to Chapel Hill, beautiful historic campus, and great college-town downtown just off campus, all part of one of the best(if not THE best) college experiences in the country.. So, 1st choice, for a beautiful historic experience, both in and outside the hotel...the Carolina Inn on UNC's campus... http://www.carolinainn.com/
2nd choice, the Franklin Inn http://www.franklinhotelnc.com/ on Franklin st. (the heart of the college town) in walking distance of campus.
Other than that, I'd choose one of the many chain hotels located off I-40, between the 2 campuses.(the campuses are just 7 miles apart) Springhill Suites, Homewood Suites, and Holiday Inn Express are just a few in the area... here's a few more ... http://fridaycenter.unc.edu/fc/hotels.html Some have Durham addresses, other's Chapel Hill, but all basically in the same area. If your budget is very tight, the Chapel Hill Days Inn is a clean, budget-friendly option.
Thank you. The Carolina Inn is what I was looking at.
I have stayed at both and personally I would recommend Chapel Hill because of the overall setting and location to food and activities on Franklin Street. If you decide to stay at UNC I would recommend the Carolina Inn, and if you decide to stay at Duke I would recommend Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club. I have found both to be excellent in quality and service.

Darden is at UVA, not UNC.
yep , I should have created a new topic. was trying my luck if anyone knew bout the best way to head from duke to Darden :)
