Amazing place to escape to after our wedding. Well appointed, comfortable, clean and classy. The brunch buffet at the hotel restaurant was AMAZING and the food & beverage credits that came with our booking made it even better. Would 100% recommend the Carolina Inn.

Recent university business required travel to Chapel Hill; staying at the same inn over the years helps the transition to yet another hotel stay. Location, staff, decor: all excellent. Staff was if anything even more cordial.
