i could not decide between this and the carolina inn. i ended up going with the franklin because i wanted to walk to restaurants and shops. for what its worth, they are only a couple of blocks from one another. you could hit town and campus from both. this seems to have a little more life/atmosphere than carolina inn. in any event, parking below hotel was no problem. cookies at check-in. chocolate at turn-down. complimentary breakfast made to order in their dining room that looks over the shops on franklin. everyone was very, very nice. i would not hesitate to stay here again. they went the extra-mile to make you feel appreciated. a nice touch.
