The inn is the best location for visiting Elon University -- walking distance. The room was spacious and clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast selections were great -- anything you might want for breakfast.

Stayed here this week while visiting Elon University. This is a beautiful boutique hotel with friendly staff and is right on the Elon campus, so everything is within walking distance. The rooms are beautiful, modern and very clean. There is a separate living area with flat screen tv, pull out couch and wine selection from a local winery. The bedroom... More

My wife and I stayed here while visiting relatives in Burlington, NC a few weeks ago. It was very clean and well kept. The staff was very accommodating and we had a nice two night stay on a Friday and Saturday night. The breakfast was cooked to order which we enjoyed greatly. They had bikes we could have used to...

Great stay while in town with my daughter for a campus visit of Elon University. Was warmly greeted at check-in and taken care of right away. Room was well appointed, clean and comfortable. The popcorn and cookies outside our door was greatly appreciated and so yummy. We all slept well and woke to a super friendly staff who had a... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Acorn Inn last year and again this year while visiting family. The suites are thoughtfully furnished, very clean and quiet. The area surrounding the Inn (Elon University area) is lovely. We visited there towards the end of July and on Thursdays, very nearby is a Farmers Market, all local farmers. Great produce!... More

Very friendly and hospitable staff from the moment we arrived! So inviting after a drive with evening snacks and warm greeting. The rooms are very spacious with a sitting room and VERY comfortable bed. The front porch is large and inviting - a great place to enjoy a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. And breakfast was so...

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
