    Came in for a Tar Heel game, first time at the Franklin. Loved it, I'll never stay anywhere else. Right across the street from my favorite cocktail bar, The Crunkleton, and a short walk to all of the classic Chapel Hill restaurants and bars.

    Located in downtown Chapel Hill, a short walk to many restaurants. The hotel is a warm and friendly place, very clean and the staff is excellent. We ate a delicious breakfast in the morning. For certain, I will stay there again.

    When I was there I did a run roughly following the Pumpkin Loop in the Carolina North Forest. You can just Google for it. That was a nice run in forest surroundings, slightly hilly, relatively smooth gravel surface.
