The common areas are wonderful, The staff is friendly but either too laid back of slow to perform. The golf is outstanding - there is no better collection of golf courses in one place in the world. The hotel is old and refurbishing seems to have brought it up to about the mid 70's. There isn't any place in the...

I don't golf so I can't comment on the big time PGA links. Here for a conference I finally got to stay at the main building, the Carolina Hotel. The Manor & the Holly aren't nearly as comfortable. I had a nice big room, #134, end of the hall, on the main floor, East Wing, just down the hall from...

The Carolina Hotel continues to be the premier hotel in the Pinehurst area. The grounds and facilities are immaculate. With a few exceptions, the service is excellent as well. The bellstaff are friendly and efficient. The dining and Ryder Cup lounge offered delicious food and drink. The breakfast buffet is one of the best anywhere in the golfing world. Finally,...

Great service, exceptional food at dinner, the biggest breakfast buffet I've ever seen, and well appointed rooms. Bathrooms have been updated and the entire facility was immaculate. I was there for business, but if you're a golfer this hotel is right in the middle of the best looking courses I've seen.

From the moment we arrived until our departure, the staff was attentive and cordial. Awesome customer service! The breakfast in the dining room included cuisine for the health conscious as well as those if us who wanted the infamous farmers fare. Lovely piano music complemented the meal.

Nice room overlooking pool. Comfortable beds and nice, large bathroom. Very clean, new carpet. Afternoon tea and the buffet breakfast are both very well done and appreciated by everyone in my family. The shuttle service is easy to use and always available without a wait. The in room TV needs an upgrade.

Beautiful green and lush surroundings, generous sized and elegantly appointed meeting facility. One bed - bedroom is smallish, but has a generous closet and fine bathroom. Two bed -bedroom is large with a 2 armchair sitting area, large windows to the front port- a -cochere. It's a mystery to me why there is no coffeemaker in the room. Or why...
