The rooms are immaculate, the fireplace is burning and the living room and separate bedroom make it the perfect place to stay with or without your college kid! The staff are instantly family and the fresh baked cookies, popcorn and other snacks are a total bonus when traveling with a Hangry child! And what is there not to like about gathering together for a glass of wine at happy hour to get to know that other guests lucky enough to have found this gem of an Inn. Breakfast has everything anyone could possibly want. Great coffee! Elon is lucky to have the Acorn Inn!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your wonderful experience with others. We absolutely love having such a huge Acorn family! We are always happy to welcome back our old friends and family and are equally thrilled to meet our new ones daily. As the GM my heart is filled with pride for the kind words and I sincerely hope every guest feels this way after staying with us.

If you're tired of stays at the cookie cutter hotels then this is a refreshing change. Small and quaint, the location is perfect for anything involving the college or if you're just passing through the area. The staff was extremely friendly and my room was squeaky clean. I enjoyed the wine/beer & cheese provided as well as the morning breakfast. Ample free parking and plenty of local restaurants within walking distance.

Sherrie was amazing!!! I was greeted with a glass of wine and immediately showed to my room. The room was perfect for myself and my daughter. Bed was comfy and shower was perfect. Breakfast was included and delicious. Especially the egg and sausage mini sandwiches. Thank you,Sherrie, for a fabulous stay! Can’t wait to return for Elon move-in day...fingers crossed :)

Normally I do not expect much when im staying in a small town but The Acorn in was a really nice treat that I will defiantly be back to. My room was nearly perfectly clean (just one item left behind in a very upper cabinet). The staff was beyond exceptional. Friendly happy and accommodating in everything one could ask for.

I travelled to the area in August with my 85-year-old mom and we stayed in the top floor suite that has two bedrooms. We were visiting on sad family business and were looking for a nice place we could return to and feel uplifted after our family duties. We enjoyed our stay very much and will return again! We were greeted by one of the owners and everyone was very friendly. The two-suite apartment is very nicely laid out, clean and has every amenity you could wish for. I love the little details like bags of popcorn in the hall basket, bikes available for riding and books on local attractions available. The only thing I would wish for is an elevator, as my mom was not so good at navigating the stairs, but she did OK. It was fairly quiet, although there is a bell that rings each time the door is opened, which was just mildly annoying. The little quirks did not bother us so much because the place is clearly run by people who are thoughtful and care to be very accommodating. The breakfast was great and leisurely!
