              7.8

              Cheap, Friendly staff, Relaxed atmosphere. Does the most important things well. Good value. Provides shuttle bus to many locations

              Shuttle stops running too early, so if you want to go out on the town at night you need to get cab. Breakfast was poor.

            • Single
              7.4

              The room was spacious and clean.

              The attitude of the staff during check-in was rather rude and not at all helpful. It got to be rather loud at times due to noise from adjacent rooms.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              I'm a UNC alum so I loved the lobby!

              Our clock didn't work.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              The entrance was very welcoming. I love all sports, so to see the local sports banners hanging was nice. The lady that cleaned the room was very polite and accommodated my room needs. I stayed two nights. The first night was rather pleasant.

              The second night was a nightmare!! First of all, my husband is a true Carolina Fan, so therefore, he felt right at home. Well, until he wanted to be photographed with the player/cheerleader stand in the lobby. As I began to take the picture, the wood frame fell to the floor with my husband lying on top of it. My question is, "Why is the stand that supports the structure on the same side that the individual taking the picture is on. Wouldn't it make more sense to put a prop on both sides so that it will support the weigh of the person posing for the picture. Then to top it all off..the last night was loud,cigarette smoke was somehow coming thru our vent from another room. I thought smoking was prohibited in rooms. Around six that morning we decided to check out and head home. The attendant ask how our stay was. I explained how bad the noise was, and her response was that she was aware of how loud the night had been.

              The beds were comfortable.

              I did not like how the access to the rooms was from the outside. Needs some updating.

            • Family with children
              9.6

              Nice comfortable rooms, very clean and spacious. The food was outstanding.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Nice facilities. Cordial staff.

              Did not include breakfast (although there were inexpensive options).

            • Family with children
              4.2

              The ac cooled the room but did not remove moisture--everything in the room was damp all the time. Though called an "inn," this is really just a motel.

            • Family with children
              6.2

              No good having a non-smoking room when the designated smoking areas is right outside your front door.
