I have stayed 3 times at the Carolina Inn, the first was for my daughter's orientation for UNC. We arrived very late (actually early in the AM) and it was VERY difficult to find a place to park. After finding a spot, we headed to the front desk and were warmly greeted and were quickly in our room. It was in a newer section of the hotel which was nice but nothing special, especially for the price. The second time here was a last minute surprise for our daughter's 20th birthday. We called from the road to inquire if there were any rooms available and were told a king room. It wasn't much bigger than my walk in closet at home, the bathroom was tiny and had tiny twin doors which you could see through when closed!! Not great when you have your daughter and her boyfriend over to celebrate her birthday with an impromptu party!! I will say the service has always been good if not great! The UNC pictures all over the hotel are great and if you take the time it's a great trip down memory lane for any Tar Heel fan!! All said my biggest gripe is that the rooms just aren't worth the price to me!! I understand they are renovating the hotel? and so we might give it another chance but for us there are just too many other choices nearby that are less expensive, more modern and larger and thus a better bang for our buck!!
