Excellent bellman, excellent room service , privacy and such a comfortable room. But no pay per view movies, which I so enjoy at night.

Stayed August 2011, traveled with family

The best "OLD" hotel I have visited. The rooms feature quality furnishings and were renovated with quality fixtures.

The Carolina Inn is so lovely to look at that that experience alone would be enough. But the kindness of every staff member -- the parking valet, receptionist, etc -- made our experience even that much better. We intend our stay to be the first of many.

Beautiful property with so much character & wonderful service. Very convenient to shopping and restaurants. The only mistake I made was coming here for work which didn't leave much time for enjoying my stay! I will certainly be back for a fun weekend in Chapel Hill.

Very nice historic hotel with all the amenities, great staff, walking distance to campus and downtown, and great complimentary chocolate chip cookies upon arrival.

Chapel Hill is one of my favorite southern towns, and the Carolina Inn is an excellent place to stay while you savor the local fare, visit the University, or see friends. It's cozy, full of interesting UNC historical artifacts, and the service is what you expect from a proper southern inn.

Between the accommodations, the restaurant and bar, and the location, it can't be beat. I was sad to miss the Friday nights on the porch, and I can't imagine how exciting it would be to tailgate there! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience...though, I'm glad I wasn't told until later in the week that it was a "haunted" spot (by a local)...I might not have stayed there! Now, having been there, I will definitely come back!

Room Tip: Ask to overlook the porch...I thoroughly enjoyed my view!
