Hotels in North Carolina

Like its restaurants and recommended travel times, types of hotels in North Carolina vary depending on the region to which you are traveling. Large chain hotels with their expected amenities, like free Wi-Fi and workout facilities are, of course, available in large metropolitan cities like Raleigh, Charlotte, and Wilmington, as well as throughout the state. However, if you’re in a smaller town, you may want to opt out of one of the hotels in North Carolina. Instead, you can find lovely bed and breakfasts or small, locally owned inns.

While some of the best hotels in North Carolina are boutique options in the mountains and along the coast, these two regions are also ideal places to rent a home. Beach houses in the Outer Banks and cozy cabins in the Blue Ridge Mountains will allow you to personalize your stay and feel at home for a week or even a month-long vacation, unlike North Carolina hotels.
