Beautifully maintained, immaculate accommodations. A North Carolina treasure that honors both UNC and the state. The parking arrangements were a welcome relief after seeing the restrictions around the campus.

Quintessential southern stay from generous staff to traditional decor and design. On a campus tour of UNC, no better play to stay - right in the heart of campus. Bed was incredibly comfortable and the lobby and hallways are gorgeous with walls boasting centuries of history.

Love the Carolina Inn. An institution that must be experienced to appreciate the history and character of Chapel Hill. We had a baby shower for a friend and the attention to detail food were both amazing.

We had an amazing stay at the Carolina Inn -- front desk staff were wonderful, the restaurant had amazing food/service, and housekeeping were great! From the moment we arrived, we noticed the grounds were well manicured and once we walked in, we felt at home.

Stayed for a week-long training hosted at the hotel. Had a great time and the food and lodgings provided by the hotel were excellent. The location to UNC's campus and Franklin Street made for an even more enjoyable stay. Staff was very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The fitness center was small, but adequate for a quick workout. Great hotel.
