A truly authentic Carolina experience. Staff is first rate. Rooms are beautiful and clean. Even small rooms in historic side of hotel are wonderful. Crossroads is great place for drinks and for breakfast.

The staff were very accommodating and friendly. Great place. My wife needed a wheelchair to get around after her recent knee surgery and the staff were able to locate and provide one for her use. Life saver!

Outstanding, relaxing, traditional, authentic yet up to date. Always a treat. No unused space in the cozy well-appointed rooms, but quality of spacious beds and sleeping are fantastic! Small work-out area available if one can find time to use it!

From the moment we pulled up to this gorgeous inn we were impressed not only by the Inn itself, but also with the surrounding area, the plantings and the valet staff. The valet parking staff was very nice and helpful - it was a definite advantage to us to have valet available. After stepping inside the front doors we were...

I always enjoy my time at the Carolina Inn.. The staff seems well-trained. The location is perfect for the events I am interested in attending. There could be more parking. That would be my only suggestion. I always seem to be pulling into the last spot.

Awesome hotel, old southern sophisticated charm smack in the middle of a thriving campus, best of both worlds. The room was basic in style but had the next mattress and pillows of our trip. Staff is abundant, coffeee shop and restaurant quote good, would be a great place for an event. Definitely stay here if you are visiting UNC.
