My daughter's wedding was here at the Carolina Inn and everything was perfectly wonderful!! Bryan Courtyard was the perfect venue for her wedding and the Old Well Room was beautiful even before it was decorated.

This hotel was very clean. The staff was very friendly. The restaurant food was excellent! Plenty of places to sit outside and eat/lounge. There is no pool, but for a business trip that didn't matter. The closest grocery store (Weaver Street Market Co-op) is one mile away and a pretty walk (in certain seasons). Many of the shops on campus...

The Carolina Inn was a pleasant place for a conference. The food provided for the conference was amazing and the rooms were comfortable and enabled me to easily listen and participate and take notes. My family came along and they enjoyed themselves while I was at work.

Loved the room. Overall hotel and staff were great. Loved the delicious cookies at the front desk. Room service was nice but they could use more variety on the menu to include vegetables, desert and southern options

Lovely, comfortable, they pay attention to the details. I've stayed here twice on business and would love to come back for a vacation, though the price is somewhat high. Room service forgot my order once, but were very gracious about offering a discount. The food is delicious, even the food offered on the buffet at a business conference!

This is one of the most beautiful hotels in which I have ever stayed. Comfortable, authentically charming and the service is amazing(but never feels intrusive.) I was here on business, but would love to return some time for a vacation stay.
