We booked this hotel to celebrate our anniversary. The website does not do it justice. Absolutely stunning. The furnishings, the art, the history, the cozy room, comfy beds and pillows and beautiful courtyard and front porch under the massive trees are just a few of the things to expect upon arriving. The staff was professional and courteous. Everything was simply perfect from Crossroads restaurant to the toiletries provided. Great location and is in walking distance to all.

Perhaps one of the best hotels in North Carolina. The bedding was truly amazing. The staff was extremely friendly even late at night. The robe made my traveling companion very happy. The room was spotless and had great amenities. Many free extras were a bonus especially the high quality tea and bath supplies. While the breakfast wasn't free it was worth the reasonable price they charged and included some outstanding options in a great dining room. The hotel was overall worth far more than I paid to stay there on a booking site. If you are ever in the area and want to have a guaranteed nice place to stay I would recommend it highly.

I can imagine why many would probably love this hotel for its charm and its history. Personally, I found it a bit too old and is far from how I would define cozy and comfy. I could not think of how it could suit me better since its intention clearly was to preserve its old state.

The hotel is centrally located in UNC. It has a concert on the green on Fridays during the summer. Everything about this hotel is classic. And their hot chocolate chip cookies are the best. It even has a free washing machine and dryer for convenience if you need it.

This is an awesome hotel for anyone that is interested in staying in a college town. It is walkable to downtown. It's a great place to stay if you are attending a UNC sports game. Close to the hospital as well. Parking is an issue in Chapel Hill, so take advantage of being able to walk.

Beautiful hotel. Wonderful staff. The room was small but lovely and comfortable. Music on the front lawn on Friday was fun. Easily able to walk to downtown Chapel Hill or stroll around campus. Loved everything about our stay.

Best overall hotel I have ever stayed in. Breakfast at the restaurant was outstanding.
Fabulous on campus location and within walking distance of downtown. The Inn is rich in history and has been restored in nearly mint condition. Always enjoy my stay here. Look for specials in the spring and summer.
