Saturday night stay at the Carolina Inn

Excellent with the exception of the person working the front desk the morning of departure. I submitted a review with the hotel survey. He was very rude with regards to our prescheduled check out of 2pm. The rest of the staff was professional and kind as always.

Lovely hotel

Charming Inn, excellent food. Walls a touch thin, could hear conversations, but guests were quiet for the most part. Beds comfortable, nice conference facilities. Enjoyed my stay. Needs a Peloton in the gym.

Great hotel in UNC

I went on a business trip where all arrangements including housing, meals and breaks were organized by sponsor. Food at all breaks was fantastic and venues for all meetings were well proportioned and very pleasant.
