    the overall upkeep was good considering the age of the buildings. there needs to be vents in the bathrooms. the water was wonderfully hot!! the landscaping was a plus.

    We loved the King Suite. What a pleasant surprise upon our arrival. The pool was still open. The grounds are always well groomed and are beautiful. It’s so close to Franklin St. My husband and I have stayed here a number of times. Every time we go back, it’s like seeing family,

    The staff was very knowledgeable about when and where to go! We came up early for the UNC and Miami game and they gave us great places to eat and where all the local museums and galleries! Of course Trader Joe's is right across the street in Eastgate Shopping Center and Food Lion and the best mexican grill Monterey's it was fabulous You can walk to all of these! They also have a little exercise room with three machines so if you want to (like I did) you can stay fit!!

    Good location - many great places to eat within a short walk and a short drive to UNC campus. Tim, the shuttle driver, is a wonderful source of local knowledge and history of the area!
