This place is absolutely incredible! I have stayed there twice with my dad, both times we were visiting Elon University. First of all, the pull out couch is actually comfortable, and the room is gorgeous and spacious. The cookies and popcorn in the hallway are delicious, and don't get me started on the mints provided. They are so amazing, I... More

That's extremely reasonable for a suite compared to Washington, DC which is where I live. The room is a nice size and very clean. My daughter and I slept in the king bed together. We did not use...

Valerie checked us in and showed us the room and chatted about places to eat. In the morning, Mary made breakfast a delightful experience. We talked about all sorts of things from... More

We had a wonderful stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The toiletries and shower were inviting. The breakfast was tasty and fast which we appreciated as we had to get on the road quickly the next day.

While not a luxury Inn as I once saw it described, the Acorn Inn by Elon University is a quite pleasing and appreciated experience when visiting the campus. Our room was clean, spacious, and quite comfortable. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. We had a quick breakfast with fresh made to order eggs and fruit. The basket of fresh... More

My room was quiet and easily accessible to the parking lot. Great snacks, comfy bed, very hospitable innkeeper. A wonderful treasure close to the Elon campus. Top shelf in every amenity. I will come back and visit again.

This has to be the most convenient place to stay when visiting Elon University!! This is a very delightful inn located just two blocks from the main entrance to Elon University. The rooms are spacious and absolutely immaculate. The breakfast was very good. Belgian waffles with Vermont maple syrup-- Yum! It is very small so be sure to book your... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Acorn Inn. We loved the living room and fireplace. It gave us the opportunity to visit in private rather than just in a restaurant. The staff was most welcoming and helpful.
