I was traveling through North Carolina with my teen daughter as we visited UNC colleges. The Duplin Inn was the perfect stopping point. We arrived late and had to leave early, but the owners/managers were extremely accommodating. We arrived to an upgraded - 2 bdrm suite that met our needs beautifully. The rooms were clean, well appointed and a very... More

The Duplin Inn is perfect if you plan on visiting the Duplin Winery. The cost is low and the owners are very nice. It is clean and comfortable. Not a ton of rooms and it is an old style pull up motel type place, but do not let that fool you. It is comfy and warm.

My wife and I were traveling because I was working in that area during the weekend and I happened to find this hotel online. It was a busy weekend in the area and as a result, there was not a room available initially for Saturday night. However, the staff called me when a room opened up and allowed us to... More

I stayed here for five nights and it was wonderful. The property is immaculate and so clean. The owners work in the garden putting in flowers and mulch. The room has a nice sized bathroom and a kitchenette with cabinets, a full sized refrigerator, microwave, sink and coffee maker. The bed was comfortable and the room was nicely decorated. Plus...

We found the Duplin Inn on Tripadvisor. We had never been to that area of NC and weren't sure where to stay. This place had very friendly owners, the room was very clean and at a great price. The only downside to our trip was that besides the Duplin Winery, there was nothing to do unless you drove the 40min... More

Thank you for suggesting the Duplin Inn as a great place to stay! While in Duplin County there are many wineries, museums and festivals to visit. You are absolutely correct that the closest city is approximately 40 minutes away............and so are the most beautiful beaches in North Carolina. We hope you'll come back and visit us soon.

We chose the Duplin Inn because we are small town people and we like to support small town businesses, and because it’s well recommended here on TA. Upon arrival, we found the Inn to be charming on the outside and well maintained. The owner told us she’d been trying to call us to upgrade us to the 2 bedroom suite.... More

We stayed at the Duplin Inn about a year ago or so when the new owners had just taken over and were fixing it up. They were very accommodating then and the room we stayed in was very satisfactory. We stayed 3 nights this time and found the owners just as accommodating. Since we were staying for several nights they... More

If you are looking for a super clean, well-maintained place to stay in the area for a great value, this is the place. The owners are very nice and accommodating and they care for the rooms as if they were their own. It may not have all the bells and whistles of a larger chain hotel, but it sure did... More
