Great room setup..living space....resting space

It was great to gather as a family in the living room area to eat, chat, watch etc. But at night that room because a bedroom separated from the main bedroom.

Even better than expected!

For the nice, low price, we weren't expecting more than just a simple place to sleep while in town for a friend's wedding...but we were wrong. The room was lovely, very clean, etc. The staff was very nice and helpful - and always with a smile. The hotel rooms were quiet and private as well. We had breakfast one morning at the hotel and again, weren't expecting much. We only ordered coffee and muffins/bagels. We were expecting to carry our own food, probably in a paper bag, and for it to just taste ok, but it was served to us on nice plates and was very tasty. And one of the most convenient amenities was a computer/printer at the front desk to print out our boarding passes when we left! We would highly recommend this particular hotel again and will probably stay here next time we are visiting friends in the Chapel Hill/RTP area. Thank you!

Everything we've come to exprect from a Courtyard by Marriott

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three nights in April 2013. The staff was fantastic and incredibly friendly. Considering the Courtyard in Chapel Hill is twice as much, this hotel is well worth the distance. The Bistro makes good fresh food and has a full bar. I will definitely be staying here when I come back.

2 Day Stay

Hotel was nice and clean. Very comfortable. Great sleep. One of the wings was under renovation, but there was little to no problems associated with that. 9/10 would recommend.

Under Construction

Undergoing major renovations to rooms & common areas, so dusty, noisy and hard to get around. Staff does a good job compensating for inconvenience of construction with superior service. Disappointed in breakfast buffet. Continental offerings plus runny eggs not worth $7. One & two star hotels offer better breakfasts for free. Overall, enjoyed my stay despite drawbacks. Will be beautiful when renovations are complete.

Great Trip to North Carolina

This was our first trip to North Carolina. We were very close to all destinations we wanted to see. Staff was friendly and the room was perfect. Would definitely stay here again and recommend this to anyone.

Basketball Game Road Trip

Various family members stayed in 3 different rooms (1 bed, 2 beds, 1 handicap accessible) and all were very clean & comfortable. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel was very close to Duke University & Chapel Hill which was a major draw. It was also easy to find. The sitting area off the lobby was large and a great place for everyone to gather and enjoy time together as well as meet new friends. We would definitely stay here again.
