Directions to Chapel Hill InnTown

NOTICE  !!!!!!  SOME GUESTS HAVE DIFFICULTY FINDING OUR LOCATION USING MAPQUEST OR GPS SYSTEMS.    THIS INCLUDES TAXICABS AND SHUTTLE SERVICES.    You should print the directions below and bring them with you. We are sometimes unavailable to give directions over the phone.  If you do not follow these directions, you may have difficulty finding us.

The cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Carrboro also have streets named "Hillsborough".  If you use a GPS, make sure you look for the Hillsborough Street address in Chapel Hill.

There are some apartments next to our sign on Hillsborough Street. They are numbered similar to ours (#1, #2, #3, #4, etc.), but these are NOT our units. Our units are at the top of the hill.

a) From the intersection of Franklin and Hillsborough Street:
Head north on Hillsborough Street away from campus. (Make sure you are on Hillsborough Street in Chapel Hill, NOT Hillsborough Road in Carrboro or Durham.)  Soon you will go down a very long steep hill. At the bottom of the hill you will bear around a sharp curve to the left. You will soon pass a bus stop shelter on your left, and there is a "Brookside" sign behind the bus stop. At the next left after the bus shelter you will see the sign that says "InnTown Chapel Hill/Hillside Condominiums".  Follow the arrow on the sign all the way to the top of the hill.  DO NOT GO TO THE APARTMENTS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL.  At the top of the hill, there is another smaller sign pointing you to the InnTown building.

b) From the intersection of Franklin and North Columbia St:
The main intersection in town is Franklin and Columbia. Head north on Columbia Street away from campus. After your cross Rosemary Street you will start going down a hill. Bear right at the fire station at which time the road changes names to Martin Luther King Boulevard. Keep going down a long hill.

After crossing Estes Drive, you'll go down a long steep hill, passing the Chapel Hill Police Department on your left. Turn left at the traffic light at the bottom of the hill onto Hillsborough Street.
