Great hotel in the center of it all. Walking distance to the Dean Dome, Kenan Stadium and Franklin Street. The hotel offers a nice restaurant, great bar and valet parking.
Rooms are small, but very comfortable, with a small fridge and coffee maker. Lobby is spectacular and is the pregame hot spot. Loved it!!! We'll stay again! and Again.

Room Tip: A longer walk, but ask for a room facing away from the lobby and at the end of a wing.

Thank you for the lovely review! Being the only hotel on the UNC Chapel Hill campus, we love that our guests are only a short walk from all university destinations and historic Franklin Street. We are also glad you had a chance to enjoy the Crossroads restaurant and bar, and enjoy the football game. We look forward to your next visit to Chapel Hill and The Carolina Inn!

This hotel was a wonderful find! It is very clean and comfortable, and the staff is friendly and helpful.
If we ever stop in NC again, we'll be staying here! The only thing I did not like was breakfast....the pancakes could have been much better, and I was very disappointed that they did not offer real maple syrup as an option. For those of us who are very food conscious, you should have some better options.

I got the reservation through the internet, and had been hoping for one of the major luxury chains. Had never heard of the Carolina Inn. I was pleasantly surprised. This is an extremely nice historic hotel. It is beautifully decorated, and the food and room service are excellent. TWO valet guys got my car! The location is a bit tricky if you aren't there for University business, just allow time for a bit of campus traffic.

We were on vacation in Chapel Hill for a college tour for our daughter. We loved Chapel Hill and the surrounding area. Our hotel was conveniently located on campus and the Franklin Street area. We will definitely visit again.

We stayed here for two nights, visiting my niece who lives nearby. The hotel is well-located. Historic documents all over the walls. Cookies at the desk! Courtesy Car to take you to nearby attractions. Free self-parking. Right on campus! Planetarium and Art museum easy walking distance. Room is a marvelous mixture of old-fashioned and high tech. The UNC campus is gorgeous. Their free shuttle-bus takes you all over. A wonderful place to stay!
