The Carolina Inn is a beautiful hotel located on the UNC Campus. It's very convenient to the campus, Franklin St., & the hospital. The Inn host many events & they do it very well.

The Carolina Inn is unique. Located on one of the most beautiful campuses in America, the Inn is an elegant and comfortable place to stay. We enjoyed the comfort of the room, the friendliness of the staff and the excellent food and service in the restaurant.

Another lovely stay at one of our favorite hotels. Never tire of walking the hallways looking at the portraits and the history of the university and inn through pictures. Service, amenities and rooms are always top-notch.

First time on this hotel and far away from deception, everything was perfect: room, food, environment, proximity, service. Close to Franklin, valet parking, big meeting rooms with required equipment for seminars, and quiet !! Definitely, i strongly recommend this place.

This was my first time staying at this amazing property and I was not disappointed. The service was top notch and the hotel and hotel rooms was sophisticated and comfortable. The Carolina Inn is a beautiful property and one that I recommend anyone who wants to stay in a non-hotel like environment.

The most comfortable bed I have slept on in all of my 51 years. The most beautifully appointed and furnished room I have been in since The White Inn in Fredonia NY in 1986. Everything was... More

rooms are still great. reception personnel can be cold vs. hospitable. it is the dining room/bar that is totally wrong for this site. Understand they need to make a profit, so they made the restaurant area a big bar area and made the cozy bar the small dining room. ugh. Bar area is cold (literally and figuratively) -- no character.... More
