“One of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in”
Reviewed 27 April 2009

This hotel is very clean, well-managed and comfortable with a friendly, helpful staff. The suites are spacious; our one-bedroom suite with two queen beds felt like a small apartment. The hotel was full both nights of our stay but it was still quiet. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. We selected this hotel on the basis of Trip Advisor's reviews and we were not disappointed. I'm a big fan of Marriott as a chain because of their all-non-smoking policy but this hotel is a stand-out even in the Marriott chain. The layout is nice with rooms grouped around the pool area, which includes a hot tub and putting green. We had beautiful weather during our stay in late April and were able to eat breakfast by the pool. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others and will stay there again if we are in the Chapel Hill area.

We stayed here for one night to attend a bay shower in the area. The hotel was exactly what I expected -- new clean, a few small buildings surrounding a pool and a putting green. The very nice front desk manager Travise checked us in early and on check-out asked about our stay. The free hot breakfast was head and shoulders above anything you'd get at some other chain hotels -- there was a "make your own waffles" station, coffee/tea/juices, oatmeal, eggs, bisquits, sausage, potatoes, yogurt (plan and flavored), fruit, a variety of breakfast breads and preserves. Very satisfying. The lobby is clean and modern. There is a pool room, a fireplace, and an exercise room which looked adequate though we did not use it.
Our suite was comfortable, with a kitchenette, a sitting area, 2 flat screen TVs, bathroom (shower only, but the shower was large), and a small bedroom. The bed was comfortable and the linens fresh. I wish there were bathrobes in the closet and a warmer comfortable (though we did not ask the hotel - maybe they provide these on request). One complaint I had is that the walls seemed thin. We could hear all kinds of noises. But that may have been because our room was close to the stairs.
A comfortable choice.

  • Liked — polite staff, kitchenette, modern and clean furnishings
  • Disliked — no mini bar, gym room in another building, limited bathroom amenities

My husband commutes to Chapel Hill for work. We decided to check out a different hotel for one night on my last weekend visit. He normally stays across the street at the Sheraton. I would not stay here again. Although the rooms are larger and have more amenities including fridge, stove, microwave, sitting room, and the hotel is newer, we had problems with noise from neighboring rooms and the beds are not as comfortable. It is slightly more expensive then what we pay at the Sheraton and the breakfast offered is not as good. I would not recommend.

I stayed at this property for ~2 weeks during a business trip. The location is very convenient although a little strange. It's 5 min. from the interstate exit and really close to shopping/restaurants in Chapel Hill. There's also a shopping center close by (technically in Durham) that has Wal-Mart and Home Depot. There is construction on the main roadway which forces drivers traveling from Chapel Hill past the hotel and into a turning lane to make a u-turn to get back to the hotel. However, upon arrival, there's plenty of parking and a welcoming front porch complete with rocking chairs. The front desk staff were courteous and knowledgeable about the area. The breakfast was plentiful with waffles, fruit, bagels, eggs, juices, coffee, etc. The rooms look new and seem to be very well cared for. There's plenty of desk space, comfortable seating, and an HDTV that swivels for viewing from the sleeping area and the living area. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. I also noticed a nice grassy area and walking trail for guests accompanied by pets. The pool is in the center of the property and has a huge area for grilling. Returning to this property after a long day at work was perfect!

My wife and I have stayed at Marriott Residence Inns before and we have always been pleased, but this one is a cut above. This property is about 18 months old, so everything is in great shape. The front desk is extremely friendly. The place is absolutely spotless from the grounds to the room. Includes a hot breakfast that is quite good. We will be back.

We were in Chapel Hill for a wedding, and we booked at this hotel because that was where everyone else was staying. We had never stayed at a Residence Inn before, and we were surprised and delighted by how much we enjoyed it.

Our room: spacious, clean, bright and comfortable. Every unit at this hotel is like a small studio apartment, with a sofa, dining table and fully equipped kitchen. We didn't really need the amenities, but it is perfect for long-term guests and small families. The furnishings were solid, stylish enough for a chain hotel, and new. Our window offered a nice view of a verdant forest. Bathroom had a nice, spacious dressing area. Our bed was super comfy.

Buffet brunch: comes free with room. Delicious food, tons of variety -- from grits to home-fries/eggs to make-your-own waffles. After buffet ends, they leave fresh fruit out for the taking.

Lobby: loved it. It's not stylish or lux, but a really fun, comfortable and congenial place for group gatherings. All in one large, sprawling space, with wings and nooks: brunch area that converts to a bar at night, a sitting area with armchairs around small tables for socializing, a lounge area with a gigantic flat screen TV, a pool table, some books on a shelf. It was a perfect place for our big post-wedding group, which included plenty of 30-somethings as well as older folks and tiny tots, to hang out.

Hotel organizes weekly and monthly activities for guests, including free barbecues and jazz nights.
