We had a wonderful stay at the Carolina Inn. It's in the best location right in the middle of campus. It is a beautiful property with a great patio with a fire pit. The restaurant is delicious and the guest rooms are lovely.More

The room was clean and spacious, well appointed with historical information, pictures, etc. Nice touches like a small plate of local delicacies. Shower leaked profusely, internet connection was spotty at best.

Personnel and facilities were great. Very attentive people, clean and beautiful areas, and a lot of details around taken care of. Treat cookies were delicious. The access to the main street was a plus to go and walk around after the work training.

The Carolina Inn is everything you would want in a hotel. It is truly home away from home. It was clean, friendly and simply gorgeous. There are only two outlets so be mindful for charging your devices.
