What Our Brides, Grooms & Families Say

The Carolina Inn has hosted weddings and special occasions since 1924, with a delightful blend of Chapel Hill hospitality, southern charm and event expertise. Here's what people have said about their special day experiences at The Carolina Inn:

Be Our Guest

"I am so happy that I listened to my parents and chose to have my wedding at the Carolina Inn. My family and husband and I still can't get over how perfectly the day went.

Our guests loved spending the weekend there and had such a blast - it has character, it's charming, it's right next to campus, the hotel staff was so hospitable, and the rooms are newly-renovated and very comfortable."


We had our reception here a couple of weeks ago. It. was. flawless.

It was the most beautiful, magical, perfect wedding! Everything went perfect and there were no hiccups. We loved every single minute of our time there. Since then, everyone has told us how much fun our wedding was and how magical the venue was!


We had my daughter's rehearsal dinner, reception and wedding breakfast at the Carolina Inn. The Inn's staff is the epitome of professionalism, responsiveness and excellence. I cannot find enough superlatives to talk about their performance!

ALL staff (parking valet, front desk staff, wait staff, bellmen, housekeeping, EVERYBODY!) were helpful and friendly. The food and service at all of our events was wonderful.

The Carolina Inn does over 150 weddings per year...and their experience is evident in every aspect needed for a perfect wedding. All CI staff involved in our wedding were consummate professionals."

Home Away from Home

What a perfect location for my daughter's wedding reception! We had several out-of-town guests who also stayed at the Inn and were blown away by the "Southern hospitality" they experienced.

The food was exceptional and the staff were always friendly and helpful. The rooms were very comfortable and clean.

The Carolina Inn was our "home away from home" that weekend; we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If you're looking for an elegant, but not stuffy, setting for your wedding reception, you must try the Inn!"

Destination Wedding

"Since our wedding was a destination wedding for a large number of our guests, my husband and I wanted to have it be a big weekend celebration for everyone who came to visit. The Carolina Inn provided the perfect venue and location to allow that to happen.

Not only is the Inn a top-notch amazing place to stay with everything you'd ever need to make a special weekend even more special, but its location (walkable to the rehearsal dinner and welcome drinks on Franklin St.) was the icing on the wedding cake."
