This hotel was elegant and relaxing. I felt pampered for the entire stay. The outdoor area was so calming and refreshing. The room was extremely comfortable and decorated to perfection I would love to have a bedroom just like this in my hone.

The Carolina Inn is an institution steeped in the tradition of Carolina University and Chapel Hill, so you might expect people to exaggerate the qualities of the Inn, especially if they're Carolina alums or Chapel Hill fans. I don't claim membership in either category and am stating, without gloss or favoritism, that the 2 days I spent here were exceptionally comfortable and pleasant. Carolina Inn is an historic, quality property, staffed by people who clearly take pride in their work. The hotel is spotless, very well maintained, and perfectly situated for strolling the area. If you have time, simply walking through the hotel itself provides a really interesting glimpse into the history of the Inn as well as a snapshot of Carolina University and many of its accomplished graduates. Additionally, the hotel has gone above and beyond in providing as safe an environment as may be possible given the current prevalence of COVID and the very nature of hotel travel. I didn't sample the restaurant so I can't speak to the quality of the food but my room was generously sized, full of natural light, and really clean and comfortable. I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm passing through.

I stayed at this place while visiting my grandma in the hospital (UNC). The location Staffwas great - right near wasthe city center. The staff was particularly friendly and the place itself was very home like and elegant. Not like your traditional hotel.

Stayed one night. Was never greeted by a bellman when I pulled up. Self parked my car. Waited 15 minutes at reception before anyone came to check me in. Check out was the same. Waited again. Staff was cold, rude and didn’t offer suggestions for ANYTHING. It’s like I was bothering them by being there. I’ll stay at the Marriot in town next time. Shame because the hotel is beautiful, though a bit overpriced.
