How it Ranks: The Carolina Inn ranks #13 out of 1219 North Carolina Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.

Our Take: Standing in the heart of Chapel Hill and roughly 32 miles northwest of Raleigh, N.C., The Carolina Inn has welcomed guests since 1924 and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It features a mixture of classic Southern charm and contemporary convenience: Guest rooms are adorned with four-poster beds and antique artwork, as well as LCD flat-screen televisions and complimentary Wi-Fi. The Carolina Crossroads Restaurant and Bar's decor recalls the early 20th-century South, while staff serves homestyle dishes with a modern twist (like sweet tea-brined chicken and foie gras BLTs). Guests say that the inn's Southern hospitality truly shines through the friendly customer service. The only downsides guests notice about this hotel are the smallish rooms and problems with the in-room thermostats.
