Chapel Hill hotel operates free shuttle service and sports-themed bar
Chapel Hill University Inn stands as a favorite for anyone traveling to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which is just two miles away. The property runs a free shuttle to designated spots, and keeps  a festive, sports-driven atmosphere at its on-site restaurant, a stone- and wood-filled tap dotted by multiple flat-screen TVs. Rooms take on garden themes and sport free Wi-Fi access.
Location

Chapel Hill University Inn operates free shuttle service to local destinations such as the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus and its affiliated hospitals. The property is also just two miles to Franklin Street, where the locals congregate for nightlife and shopping.

Rooms
Chapel Hill University Inn rooms brim with Southern charm, from the fluffy, floral-printed comforters to coordinating artwork. White arched headboards further the traditional style. Patrons have a choice of double or king rooms equipped with free Wi-Fi access, cable TV with premium channels and a coffee maker.
Dining

Sports plays a huge role at the Chapel Hill University Inn. Time Out Sports Bar – the resident tavern and eatery – engages diners with a comfort food-driven menu, patio dining and 17 HDTVs for catching the game. The light-filled dining room reflects a more modern style than the rooms, thanks to sleek light fixtures, stone walls and shiny hard wood floors. Burgers, ribs and a hearty breakfast are a few signatures.

Longer hours for the local shuttle would help in a city known for limited affordable public parking.

You get what you pay for

Hotel is ok, the heat in the room was on all the time, found a condom wrapper under the edge of the bed. Your choices are limited in the area.

nice vacation

My husband and I had a fantastic time in St. Maarten. The hotel was beautiful and the staff was courteous and helpful. We took a tour of the island and took lots of pictures. The weather was great and the beaches were relaxing. The restaurants served delicious food and the casinos were fun. I loved St. Maarten so much that I did not want to return to the states. I recommend if you get the opportunity go to St. Maarten, you won't be disappointed.

A great *hotel home* in Chapel Hill

The University Inn in Chapel Hill is perfect in so many ways. First it is clean and the staff is so friendly and helpful in every way. Parking is plentiful and close to your room. The pool area is lovely, although only for summer months. The Dugout Restaurant and Bar on site is a perfect place to unwind or grab a meal. There are many restaurants and shops within walking distance and the University Mall is just a couple minutes away where you can catch a free shuttle to Carolina games. There are other hotels in Chapel Hill that are great but University Inn is the place I usually stay because of location, staff and parking. GO HEELS!!

Great spot. Fine hotel.

Lots of "Tarheel" flavor in this pretty standard hotel. Have stayed more than once. Rooms clean but nothing spectacular. Some smell kinda smokey. But great great value for the location close to UNC.
