This place is a gem. The rooms are clean and the bathroom was very modern. The staff were remarkable: someone greeted me outside and walked me to the front desk. When I wanted to go for a run, the concierge walked outside with me and pointed me in the right direction. If you stay here, you've got to roam the halls and look at the photos of all the amazing people who went to school at UNC and then made a name for themselves.

Room Tip: If they give you room 222, say no. It seems to be right above a dock and there was a lot of truck no...

This is the place to stay in Chapel Hill.The ambience, amenities, service and location are excellent., making your stay there an dditional experience. I was in town for a wedding at another location, so I didn't get to take advantage of their restaurant, etc. but highly recommend for a beautiful room and superlative experience.

Decided to stay at the Carolina Inn to get some rest and relaxation after a long week. The staff was excellent and went above and beyond. I will definitely be back and would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Since my childhood visits here, this centrally-located Inn has improved to at least 4 stars - rooms and closets still fairly small and the lobby decoration is atrocious - garish mix of fabrics. But the display of photos of distinguished graduates in all hallways is fascinating. Bar/Grill is great (though sometimes noisy) with wonderful servers and food is good. Excellent room service and valet people couldn't be better, All in all very good return visit!

We stayed at The Carolina Inn for two nights in September 2013. Fresh and spacious room. Cool and comfortable, lovely huge beds.
The Hotel is located just a block from the main street with restaurants and right in the middle of the college area in Chapel Hill.
It´s an elegant entrance to the Hotel and plenty of space to sit and relax.

There are hotels where people sleep and hotels which are central to a community's identity. The Carolina Inn strikes me as the latter: the great, elegant gathering place for Chapel Hill. The rooms are not big (at least my room wasn't) but are beautifully appointed. The public spaces are genteel. Of course, if all you want to do is sleep, I'm sure other places are adequate for a lot less, but staying at the Carolina Inn had been a treat!

I stayed at the Carolina Inn while on business at the University. From the moment I arrived and throughout my stay, I was pleased with every aspect of my stay. The staff were the best anywhere. Withou exception, they were professional but warm and friendly; my room was small but very clean and comfortable; the public areas the nicest I've seen in any hotel. The restaurant is a delightful experience, with excellent foods and service.
