We are parents of a senior at Elon, and this was our first stay at the Inn. So wish we'd stayed here during other visits. Very convenient to Elon's campus, lovely and large rooms, wine tasting in the evening, breakfast served in the morning, and free use of laundry. Staff very friendly, and the setting was very, very comfortable. If... More

We stayed here while touring Elon. Unbelievably nice accommodations. There was a glass of wine to greet us, as well as snacks! Our corner suite was huge with seating areas, king beds, a modern bathroom. Campus is right across the street, and the Elon restaurants and shops are steps away. Breakfast was lovely, with a great variety of frittata, yogurts,... More

Stayed here for a week for this year's parents weekend. My daughter was sick and spent several nights with me while we nursed her back to health. I can't say enough about how accommodating the entire staff were. They were always very attentive and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. We have stayed... More

Great place to stay for a visit to Elon college student. This is within walking distance of campus. The staff are friendly ; the mattress is extremely comfortable. There is a very nice patio with several chairs and tables that are great for eating the included breakfast out-side or relaxing.Everything is clean and working. All of the staff are friendly...

We had returned to Elon with our daughter who is a senior. She was to do an overnite at Elon with one of her friends. Unfortunately she has torn her ACL 2 days before our visit. She needed to stay with us. The manager changed us to a 2 bedroom suite (the LT Suite). It was spacious, comfortable and gorgeous.... More

Sorry for the bad pun but this is a great little bed and breakfast. The rooms are actually suites with a separate bedroom. Very nicely furnished with a super comfortable bed. There is a small lobby area where you check-in and where they serve breakfast but the best part is the large front patio where you can sit in the... More

Drove quite a distance to move our daughter into her apartment at Elon, only to find out that the compressor on the air conditioner was out at her apartment and couldn't be fixed over the weekend. It was August and HOT, so the move-in was rough. When I spoke to them about having my daughter stay with us in the... More

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

The location is perfect for Elon visitors. There is no question about that. I paid $125 for one night stay in July. 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...

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by staying at the Acorn Inn. The suite was wonderful and the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. 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
