My husband, Brian, and I stayed at the Acorn Inn this past weekend because he was participating in the Mission Man Triathlon at Lake Cammack Park in Burlington, NC. The staff really made us feel welcome and comfortable. They provided popcorn, cookies, and fruit in the hallway for snacks in the evening. They invited all of the guests, who were... More

My husband and I recently competed in a triathlon in the Elon area and took a chance on the "host hotel" which was The Acorn Inn. We could NOT have been happier with this choice!!! From the minute I communicated with them about reservations until the moment we checked out the personal attention was almost unheard!! We received a phone... More

We stayed there in March of 2014 and Mike Brown did a great job of getting us into another Hotel because The Acorn was booked for part of the time we were in Elon. Great location and the Inn is wonderful. Staff is very accommodating. We loved our stay. Don't have to say we would go back, because we just... More

We made a last minute reservation while visiting Elon University so we could stay at a nicer place for my daughter's birthday. (We are doing college tours. ) We had a reservation at a nearby Marriott property, but this is so much nicer. Very pleasant receptionist, excellent room with separate sitting area, mini fridge with wine and treats on honor... More

We toured Elon College and had a deliteful stay at the Acorn Inn. The rooms were clean and quiet. We had a suite and everything looked crisp and new. The full breakfast was well prepared and tasty. Our breakfast host could not have been more helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

The Acorn Inn is located just two short blocks from the main campus of Elon University. If you are traveling on Interstate 40, the inn is only three short miles away! It is worth the drive! It...

We really enjoyed our one-night stay at the Acorn Inn. We arrived late but still found a table with some cookies, fruit, and popcorn to help ourselves. The suite living room had a pull-out couch with a much-nicer-than-average mattress. The bedroom had a wonderfully comfortable king bed. All of the blankets were very soft. The bathroom had a whirlpool tub... More

You really can't beat The Acorn Inn when visiting Elon University in Elon, NC. It's just a few minutes' walk to the campus so you don't have to worry about finding parking. One of our favorite parts is the super-big terrace/patio out front with plenty of comfy seating in both the shade and sun. The staff is super-friendly and there... More

We love The Acorn Inn! It is always our first choice of places to stay when visiting our daughter who is a student at beautiful Elon University. The rooms are immaculate and the staff is so very accommodating and friendly. It is an Inn that is warm and makes you feel right at home with a tranquil ambience. The Inn... More
