I am going back and forth re staying at the Acorn Inn or staying at one of the chains a few miles away when visiting/exploring Elon. The Acorn reviews are mixed...and the reviews for Country Inn & Suites, although some mix, seem better. Also, we would be arriving when there is a lock box at the Acorn. I have called twice this week (including today) to reserve a room and I get a message saying someone will call me back. The last time I called was more than an hour ago--a little after 11 AM local time there--and no one has called me back yet, which does concern me. I like the idea of being able to just walk to and from our hotel and the Elon campus, but it seems like driving and parking for the day is not a big deal, either. (Chain will cost a lot less, too, via a deal I found.) Thoughts? Thanks!
