Verified Reviews of The Carolina Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Wedding Venue"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Excellent wedding venue. Great check in and check out experience. Parking valets very friendly and helpful. Bathroom needs a little work. Shower is flush with the floor with no ledge, so water goes all over bathroom floor on entering/exiting.

Property Description

Green Sustainability

Water ConservationAll public area restrooms are equipped with sensor toilets, minimizing water flow. In addition, water efficient shower heads have been installed in all guest rooms. A towel and bed linen reuse program is in place and the housekeeping department uses a patented aqua-fusion laundry system that customizes the amount of ozone delivered to each washer. The system reduces hot water usage and overall water use by 30%, decreases energy expenses, shortens wash cycles and reduces linen replacement costs.
