I am going to preface this review by saying that my family and I travel a great deal, and my wife and I went to UNC-Chapel Hill. We graduated about 25 years ago, and over the years we have stayed at countless Chapel Hill hotels. Our FAVORITE by FAR is the Carolina Inn. Located right in the middle of campus, it is wonderful to be able to walk to everything on Franklin Street (the main street in Chapel Hill) and to everything on campus. Whether you are there for fun, or a sporting event, it's the perfect location. The hotel has a charm about it, whether you went to school there or not. It is classy, beautiful, historic, and the rooms are very well appointed and they feel updated. The food at the restaurant is wonderful as well - we had breakfast there each morning. The staff, most notably the manager Gillian, is so wonderful and welcoming. She went above and beyond to make our family stay special. I enthusiastically recommend this hotel, and we cannot wait for our next visit!

I always feel welcome and relaxed here. The staff is fantastic and having a great restaurant attached means you can stay in and still have a great meal, or drinks. Centrally located it is a great place to stay while in the area.

This is a lovely hotel with great service and beautiful ambience. Our room was big enough for our family of 4 (including two large teenaged boys). The beds and linens were so comfortable and the shower/bath area felt luxurious. The bar was fun and festive. Location next to Chapel Hill campus can’t be beat. Highly recommend.

We live local to Chapel Hill but we decided it would be fun to stay an evening instead of traveling for Spring Break. The hotel and property are both lovely. It is expensive to stay there especially factoring in food and drink costs. However, the food a drink are impeccable, and I don’t mind spending more when I receive something high quality. Also, the location is unparalleled if you want to visit Chapel Hill campus and/or Franklin Street. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend this hotel to anyone who is not concerned with finding a bargain deal. You will be sure to pay, but you will receive an amazing experience.
