I have stayed at the Carolina Inn on many occassions (for TarHeel sporting events mostly)! I always enjoy myself! It is important to understand that this is a boutique hotel, so every room and every stay has been different (but great) for me. Their rooms are like a box of chocolates...you never know what delicious surprise is waiting for you inside! When you know you are coming to Chapel Hill...book that day, because getting a room vacant is not an easy task. Go Heels!
