My daughter and I stayed here while visiting Elon and loved it. Rooms are clean, comfortable, spacious and charming. Our room was a suite with a pullout sofa and a room with a queen size bed separated by a hallway. Great setup especially if you're traveling with a snorer! breakfast served by wonderful staff. Would come back here in an... More

Three visits to the Acorn Inn and always delighted with the cleanliness, friendly service and very comfortable room accommodations. The breakfasts are wonderful...made to order hot selections along with a great variety of yogurts, fresh fruits and baked goods. It's always nice to return in the afternoon to fresh afternoon snacks (home baked cookies, fresh fruit and popcorn.) The location... More

This is our favorite hotel! I wish there was a place like this in every town we visit. It's spotlessly clean, comfortable and a terrific value. Breakfast is great, the staff is friendly and the suite is just marvelous! I can't recommend this inn highly enough.

We spent one delightful night at the inn and wished our stay were longer. The bed was fantastic; the breakfast wonderful and served by the most delightful chef; we ate on... More

I don't typically write reviews but I have to share with other Elon parents that THIS IS THE PLACE to stay. This inn far exceeded my expectations and offered so many extras that made my visit to see my senior son truly delightful. From the large room, comfortable bed & spotless room to the wine and cheese greeting......huge breakfast and... More

Stayed here on a visit to Elon. This was by far one of the most best stays at a Inn that I've ever had. Mike the owner is very accommodating and exceptional! Mary who works the kitchen is friendly and makes the best breakfast! Would not stay anywhere else when I visit this area again!

Located excellent for campus activities. Nice breakfast in the morning featured cooked to order eggs and waffles. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. If you are doing anything on Elon campus it is a perfect place to stay.

I chose the Acorn Inn as it was close to Elon University and suited our B&B preference to chain hotels. Our email confirmation came as soon as I booked it with late arrival instructions. When we arrived after hours, there was a note with our name at the main entrance with instructions how to retrieve our key and access our... More

Lovely inn with 2 room suites. It was spotless and very comfortable. So many nice touches throughout. Reasonably priced mini bar , robes, bathroom amenities and friendly staff. It has a large front porch where you can relax with a glass of wine and watch the world go by. Highly recommended.

A delightful and convenient small inn on the edge of Elon University. Exceptional staff and the rooms are better than you would expect in an area catering primarily to "parents visiting university sites". Rooms are actually suites - large, comfortable with excellent beds and linens, robes, etc. Honestly, you could stay here for a week and be perfectly happy! Breakfast... More
