TripAdvisor Ratings

Great for a 2 star basic hotel
September 15, 2019

Ok let's get this straight. Hotels are 1 to 5 on what they have and are and then rated. On this basic budget 2 star hotel it is very very good. Lots of security cameras....rooms updated no carpet...nicely remodeled for a folder dated hotel. And priced decent for what it is. Is it a Ritz or and it's not rated to be as one. Seen no bugs...everything clean including back of TV and corners and ac unit it fairly new and super clean. Recommend for needing to crash or stay cheap. Staff could have been a little nicer. But can live with that. Only complaint is toilet had leak internally that made it cycle every couple hours a little. Other than that nice and quite.

Gave it another shot. Jordan R is ALL THAT!!!

I'd stayed here once before when there was a power outage, and it was handled so poorly that I vowed never to come to this -- or any -- Red Roof Inn again. But I needed to come to NC, my travel budget was almost exhausted, and gave me this place. I walked in, and a young man named Jordan was at the coffee machine. He had an easy but respectful manner, and came over to start taking care of me. The phone rang, and I watched this young man handle the people on the phone while providing excellent customer service to me. You just don't see that any more. This guy had both common sense and good old fashioned customer service skills! The room was so-so -- for the price I'm paying, I consider it a bargain, and it came complete with a signed note, so I actually know who to contact if I need anything or anything goes awry. The location is close to New Hope Commons and a short drive from Chapel Hill, so it's kind of ideal for me. I'm really glad I gave it another shot, and ecstatic that Jordan took such good care of me. I will return!!

Fairly priced; Convenient location; Clean rooms; SUPERB hospitality and management
August 07, 2019

After having stayed at many Red Roof Inns throughout the nation (and every single one within the triangle area), I particularly like this Chapel Hill location. Not only was the front desk clerk very pleasant, prompt/accommodating prior to and during our check-in; our room was exceptionally clean, smelled fresh and was facing a serene, wooded, park-like setting. (The hotel is also conveniently located and offers close proximity to both Durham and Chapel-Hill.) Above all, the manager of this property, Nick, is exceptionally outstanding and unparalleled in his approach to customer service/professionalism. Where did this man come from? They don't make em' like that anymore! Thank you to Nick and his front desk staff for being so top-notch and making our stay enjoyable.

jordan at front was the man

We stayed here when we were on our way to Canada from Florida. At first there was a mix up with our reservation, but Jordan was able to help us out and went above and beyond our expectations to help us. The room was also nice and we felt rested for our long journey the next day.
