This was just a quick overnight trip to the Chapel Hill/Durham area, but enough time to form a very positive impression of this Hampton Inn. Comfortable and spotless room, could adjust the A/C so that it's wasn't igloo-cold during warm weather, complimentary wi-fi worked faultlessly, and there was plenty of drawer space for travelers staying longer. Also a mini-refrigerator (not a mini-bar). Nice shower and toiletries and enough towels. The included hot breakfast buffet was a cut above what is offered in similar hotels -- beyond the make-you-own waffle option, there was fresh fruit, replenished when it got low, mini-cheese omelets, cooked oatmeal, and two or three coffee choices, also available throughout the day. The breakfast room is bright, high-ceilinged and spacious -- very pleasant place to start the day.
The property is on a side road off the main road -- no traffic noise. It shares an entrance with a Holiday Inn and is tucked behind it. Attractive landscaping -- the turtle pond is actually on the Holiday Inn property, and while I guess the turtles were on break when I walked over, there were countless big tadpoles to see just under the surface. As has been mentioned, you do need your car to drive to restaurants and other services, but anything we needed was a quick drive.
I definitely would stay at this hotel again when in the area. Excellent value. We needed an extra hour before checkout, and it was no problem. The only improvement I can suggest would be brighter bulbs in the lights by the bed. But the light is fine at the desk and by the comfortable reading chair/ottoman.
