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

This property is just 2-3 blocks from Elon University campus, so the location is more than convenient. That's the best part. Rooms are "suites" and there is adequate space however they are lacking large enough windows to have any real light from outside. BUMMER...You feel like you are in a dark interior space. Little free snacks in public area were... More

I stayed at The Acorn Inn on 10/15. The service was exceptional and I love the setting on the fringe of Elon University. The outdoor patio is great. Campus and the local restaurants are within easy walking distance. Very quiet and comfortable, easy to get an excellent night's rest. Can't wait to return!!!

My son and I stayed at the Acorn Inn for 3 nights while visiting Elon U. We were very pleasantly surprised by how spacious the room was, with a comfortable fold out couch in the sitting area, and a private bedroom with a nice king-sized bed. Even more of a treat was the great breakfast in the morning. Made to... More

Easy check in, they made us feel at home immediately, gave us our keys a few things to know and that was that. Breakfast is included with made to order eggs and waffles and great coffee! A beautiful and huge porch was hosting live music the night we arrived. Located on the campus of elon univwrsity

My only hesitation with providing a great review is that I want to ensure availability the next time I'm at Elon University! The Acorn Inn is a gem. The rooms are spacious and clean ... the staff accommodating and very pleasant ... and the experience truly special. The morning hand-cooked tailor-made breakfast and evening wine and cheese just add to... More

We have been visiting Elon for years with 2 of our children attending Elon University. I am only sorry that it took me so long to find the Acorn Inn. It has the best location, just 2 blocks from campus. I was concerned about the possible late night noise since the inn is located so close to student housing but... More

Having been fortunate to spend three nights at the inn the week classes started at Elon,I then returned the following week for an overnight stay. I was made to feel at home immediately on both occasions by each staff member that I met. My suite was impeccable and comfortable and the common spaces inviting,especially the front terrace.

We have two sons, a recent Elon graduate and an Elon junior. We have never had the opportunity to stay at the Acorn Inn prior to our recent visit. It was an absolutely fantastic experience. From the extremely attentive staff, to the charming suites, to the wine and entertainment on the porch, it was delightful.
