This is a lovely Southern hotel offering great service. The staff was truly helpful. We had dinner in the dining room and lunch in the bar area, and both were delicious. The location is perfect for visiting the University.

This is such a beautiful hotel in a lovely part of town. It was quiet and very clean. The room was filled with beautiful furniture. Service was excellent and breakfast delicious and reasonably priced.

A historic hotel in a great location on the UNC campus. We could walk all around the campus and on Franklin street from the hotel. We stayed over the weekend when there was no home football game. The hotel had a very inviting style. We would definitely stay there again when in Chapel Hill. The hotel bar was very comfortable and well stocked.

Room Tip: Book at least a Queen deluxe room.

We visited for a four-day conference at the almost-end of October when the leaves were turning and the weather was very nice. It was a delight to have such a quaint place within walking distance of the shops on Franklin Street and the campus garden. Room was perfectly clean and comfortable.

We are never disappointed when staying at the Carolina Inn. This was by far our best experience as it appears much more upscale now since it has become a member of the Destination Hotels & Resorts Group. Service, room and food were impeccable, from arrival to departure. You can't beat the hospitality, location on a beautiful historical college campus and the cultural offerings near the hotel. We will always choose the Carolina Inn when staying in Chapel Hill!

Staying at the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill is always a treat. The Inn's is under new management and you can definitely feel the improvement. The staff, which has always been pleasant, is even more upbeat, accommodating and professional. The manager, Mr. Stewart, was particularly accommodating and made sure that we had everything we needed.

We have always recommended the Carolina Inn but will do so even more.

I just returned from a conference in Chapel Hill. The conference was held at the Carolina Inn, which is where I stayed as well. The meeting facilities were terrific and the staff was very attentive. The food was excellent in my opinion. I was absolutely charmed the second I opened the door to my room. Four poster bed, a chaise, a writing desk.....need I say more? Very comfortable and a very modern bathroom. Nice fitness center. Within easy walking distance of Franklin Street with its many restaurants and shops and almost any place on the UNC campus. High recommendation
