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.

Surrounded by loud, drunk students until 2 AM

Our trip started and ended in the Raleigh, NC area, so I booked the starting night and ending night at this motel. The room itself is a little dated, but not bad, it is the apparent policy of management to book large numbers of rooms to sport teams visiting UNC at Chapel Hill that seems to be the problem. For our first night, there were two school buses parked in front the motel, a bad sign. Sure enough there were teenagers walking around , slamming doors, etc. until late. But our last night there was the worst. Management was apparently pleased that they had booked all 16 teams for a water polo event at the U. The problems didn’t start until we had turned in for the night. We could hear yelling, often outside our door, slamming doors, loud music, etc. I called the office to let them know. I was assured it would stop. It did not. At 2 AM we were awaked by repeated, very loud yelling of profanities, running outside our room, etc. I again called the office to report the problem but with no result. The next morning when we checked out, we say empty cases of beer, pizza boxes, littered around our area. At the office, we learned that the police had been called. The desk clerk seemed very tired and frustrated, telling us he could do nothing, that he had heard all about it from other guests checking out. That we has basically the same experience twice there makes us think this must be a frequent occurrence at this location.

Great getaway

The hotel for the value was great! The bed and pillows were very comfortable and it was very clean. The only troublesome issues were technical. The Wifi would not connect with my computer and it stated it was the router and the cable was fuzzy.

Served it's purpose, barely

If your just looking for a place to put your head down to rest overnight, this is decent. Musty rooms with just a hint of tobacco in the non-smoking room was barely tolerable. While the name 'Chapel Hill University Inn' implies proximity to UNC, the reality is a rental car is a must for easy access to campus. In-room fridge, microwave and proximity to convenience store and strip-mall helped. The outdoor swimming pool might be nice in the summer, but I'm sure the noise from the busy road makes for a distracting back-drop.

Good location, good value

Hit the hotel with it raining and near freezing. Instead of making the exposed stairways safe, they just closed them-guess that is what they do in NC. Room was as you would expect-clean, comfortable with good amenities,
