Awesome hotel, old southern sophisticated charm smack in the middle of a thriving campus, best of both worlds. The room was basic in style but had the next mattress and pillows of our trip. Staff is abundant, coffeee shop and restaurant quote good, would be a great place for an event. Definitely stay here if you are visiting UNC.

I stay at the Carolina Inn when I have to go to UNC Hospital and this place is magnificent. It's quiet beauty and old world charm make it a perfect get away even at a time that is not so particularly easy. The staff are quite friendly and especially the valets. Very helpful and kind, great place to stay.

Superb facilities with a highly trained and helpful staff. We had a lovely weekend.
The facilities were first class and made me feel as if I was in Gone with the Wind. The attitude of the staff and their willingness to meet guests needs was remarkable.

The hotel and its staff were warm and welcoming from the moment we drove up. The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. Great place to sit outside and have a drink. We were visiting UNC and it was so great just walking out the door of the Inn and onto the campus. Definitely our hotel of choice when visiting UNC.
