Right near the University and the beautiful North Carolina landscapes. Kingsdown sleep system is oh-so-comfy! Cookies in the afternoon and popcorn later. Lovely breakfast with Mary's famous frittata. Bikes to borrow. Don't worry about the nearby train tracks. The last train I heard in the night was at 10:15. Lots of acorn theme items around - lots of fun. We...

This was our first time visiting Elon. We were in Elon to visit the university - and the Acorn Inn was just lovely! What a treasure of an Inn! We loved our suite and Mary's frittata is a must-have at the complimentary continental breakfast bar...

The Acorn Inn is our first choice when visiting Elon U. It is reasonably priced, each room has its own sitting room, and there is a lovely expansive porch with loads of seating. The Acorn offers special touches such as a note on the door reminding us to set our clocks back, popcorn and fresh baked cookies every night, daily...

We are parents of a senior at Elon, and this was our first stay at the Inn. So wish we'd stayed here during other visits. Very convenient to Elon's campus, lovely and large rooms, wine tasting in the evening, breakfast served in the morning, and free use of laundry. Staff very friendly, and the setting was very, very comfortable. If...

We stayed here while touring Elon. Unbelievably nice accommodations. There was a glass of wine to greet us, as well as snacks! Our corner suite was huge with seating areas, king beds, a modern bathroom. Campus is right across the street, and the Elon restaurants and shops are steps away. Breakfast was lovely, with a great variety of frittata, yogurts,...

Stayed here for a week for this year's parents weekend. My daughter was sick and spent several nights with me while we nursed her back to health. I can't say enough about how accommodating the entire staff were. They were always very attentive and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. We have stayed...

Great place to stay for a visit to Elon college student. This is within walking distance of campus. The staff are friendly ; the mattress is extremely comfortable. There is a very nice patio with several chairs and tables that are great for eating the included breakfast out-side or relaxing.Everything is clean and working. All of the staff are friendly...

We had returned to Elon with our daughter who is a senior. She was to do an overnite at Elon with one of her friends. Unfortunately she has torn her ACL 2 days before our visit. She needed to stay with us. The manager changed us to a 2 bedroom suite (the LT Suite). It was spacious, comfortable and gorgeous....

Sorry for the bad pun but this is a great little bed and breakfast. The rooms are actually suites with a separate bedroom. Very nicely furnished with a super comfortable bed. There is a small lobby area where you check-in and where they serve breakfast but the best part is the large front patio where you can sit in the...

Drove quite a distance to move our daughter into her apartment at Elon, only to find out that the compressor on the air conditioner was out at her apartment and couldn't be fixed over the weekend. It was August and HOT, so the move-in was rough. When I spoke to them about having my daughter stay with us in the...
