Verified Reviews of Chapel Hill University Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Room looked dirty; smelled of mold; broken bathroom tiles; ugly room; dark."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I checked in, complained to the desk clerk about the room on seeing it; then left for a meeting. When I returned, I checked out of the University Inn the same day I checked in (September 18, 2019). In actuality, I never spent an hour at the place and certainly didn't sleep there. E. Alexander, Ph.D.

"Room"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Great bed room clean and warm. Only complaint could not close the curtain to darken the room so sleep was difficult.

"Just. .wow"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I don't even know where to start. The room was so dirty that my son and I both have these little chigger bites on our legs. When told about this management first asked me to see the bites and when I went to pull up my pant leg they said nevermind and then told me that it was probably mosquito bites. My stay was at the end of October there are no more mosquitoes alive not only that but I also am allergic to mosquitos therefore I know when I've been bit by mosquito because my mosquito bites swell up to the size of golf balls these were not mosquito bites. When confronted with this information the manager simply looked at me and told me that she didn't know what I wanted to do. She then sent the maintenance guy up to the room that I was in and had him go check the room out and said that there was nothing in the room that there was no visible evidence of any bugs in the bed in any way shape or form she then suggested that I moved rooms and instead of offering anything that was of any substantial note she told me that I could either check out or move rooms the lack of customer service was astounding. Not to mention the fact that when housekeeping came by they did not remove any of the trash or take the sheets off the bed the first morning of my stay it wasn't until I had to requested the sheets to be changed on the third morning of my stay that they were changed; and it took them five hours to change the sheets after I requested a sheep change I requested the sheet change at 9am and they didn't change the sheets on my bed until two in the afternoon. The rooms A/C didn't work and it was way too hot in both the original room and the second room. When told about this the manager said "well we will either freeze you or over heat you". Which is not something a paying guest wants to hear. All in all it was a horrific experience and I will not be returning to that establishment ever again.

"Nice lobby, disappointing room."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We were very pleased with the location to this hotel. The lobby is decorated so nicely with flags of all the ACC teams. The room was what I would expect for the rate, but when we went to turn on the heat, there was a huge leak in our bathroom with water coming out from the ceiling. The maintenance man came but it was quite some time before they decided to give us another room. The 2nd room had better amenities, a microwave and mini-fridge, but we were unable to control the heat/air.
