The rooms in this gem of an inn on the campus of UNC/Chapel Inn just underwent a renovation and they're better than ever.
This is your classic charming inn. Well appointed but not stuffy. Comfortable and welcoming, The rooms now have new new marble baths and glass walled showers, new armoires and mini entertainment centers, and spiffy new paint jobs. Some longtime guests say they wish the bath tubs weren't removed. But to me the new modern amenities are great.
I have stayed here more than a dozen times and have never been disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the Commerce/Business wing. If you want to save a buck or two and still have a great time, dine at the bar at the inn rather than the main dining room. The menu is just as good and the atmosphere and is more comfortable and less stifled.

The Carolina Inn is called "the living room of UNC Chapel Hill." I have no affiliation with UNC, but they certainly have a beautiful living room! Everything about the hotel is lovely, and what a pleasure it would be to actually live there. The front desk staff were very helpful with directions, restaurants, and more. The room was traditional in décor but featured modern amenities, the fresh baked cookies provided upon check in were a nice touch, and the evening snack provided with turn down service was a welcome surprise. The lobby area seems to actually welcome visitors to relax and linger. Yes, the property is pricey compared to others in the area, but I would definitely stay there again and again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the courtyard (not the parking lot.)

Stayed for 3 nights in November 2013 and couldn't fault the hotel. The location is prefect for the campus but also convenient for a cast choice of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. The room was clean and spacious and the hotel pretty quirky, but noting was too much trouble for the staff who were pleasant and helpful throughout. Highly recommended.

Was here for a wedding--everything was great! Wonderful ambiance! Downtown and campus are within walking distance--made for a wonderful stay! Staff is very accommodating. Made us feel very welcomed. We checked in early and our rooms were ready for us.

Room Tip: Some rooms are small, but very well equipped.

I felt completely spoiled in my luxurious double queen room! Great ambience; covers turned back and chocolates on the pillows the first night; incredible breakfast and dinner options; inside of rooms exceeded the delight I experienced at the Grovepark Inn in Asheville, NC; pleasant to find organic products in the bathrooms; everything spotless; overall AWESOME!

Room Tip: Only issue was that AT&T cell service was difficult to obtain inside.
