We stayed at the Carolina Inn for a wedding in Chapel Hill, NC. From the parking staff to the check-in, everything was pleasant and first class. The decor was sophisticated and is comprobable to that of the Homestead, Greenbriar, or Jefferson hotels. We rode the elevator up to our 3rd floor room to find a very well appointed queen bedroom. The bed was very comfortable and they had high speed internet hook-ups, flat screen TV with HBO, and nice wardrobe. I think I was most impressed with the bathroom with its updated fixtures and beautiful stand-up shower. The restaurant was hopping with four weddings going on during the same day, but the staff was excellent and was always trying to help when possible. We had a great stay and really enjoyed the town of Chapel Hill.

The Carolina Inn has a lot of character and is located across the street from the UNC campus, so convenient to both campus and Franklin St (the center of town). This older hotel is well maintained and is a special place to stay.

We stayed at the Inn twice now. Once in April of 2010 and again in May of 2011. Our daughter was having her wedding at the Inn so it was the logical place to stay. The Inn itself is quite beautiful. The lobby welcomes you in with nice decor and fresh flowers. The hallways are grand and also well decorated. The rooms however, are small and no nicer than most rooms at a good quality hotel even though the price is much higher. Yes, the rooms were clean but they were not spotless. Our April trip was only one night so I didn't experience housekeeping that time. For our May trip, which was my daughters wedding the housekeeping was questionable at best. Our room was never cleaned after our first night. We had left the room early to prepare for the wedding and we were very surprised to come back to an uncleaned room. They did come in while the reception was going but only minimal straightning was done....no fresh towels, toiletries, or coffee. Luckily we always lock up all of our belongings whenever we leave a room. My daughter (the bride) was not so lucky. Her room also didn't get cleaned until the reception was going. She didn't expect it would be done that late so she did not lock up her belongings. Sadly, some of her items went missing! Not something you expect at such a highly rated hotel! For what we paid for these rooms we were dissapointed with the service we received and also dissapointed in the way management handled the situation with my daughters missing items. If we need a room in Chapel Hill again we will not stay at the Carolina Inn. There are better values elsewhere. Now I must say that the wedding reception itself and the wedding coordinator and staff were beyond compare! They, unlike the hotel, went above and beyond to make sure that my daughter had the most beautiful, elegant wedding possible. We could not be happier with this part of our experience and would highly recommend the wedding services to anyone!...just spend the night somewhere else!

was in chapel hill for an interview and only stayed one night. i attended a wedding here a few years ago but have never stayed as a guest.

a beautiful inn with superior service ..would like to have stayed longer! the room and bed was very comfortable, the bathroom beautiful and they supplied nice toiletries. parking was a breeze, which can be hard to find when so close to a university. the location is excellent; so close to lots of restaurants and bars.

most definitely worth a stay when in chapel hill and if willing to splurge a bit.
