Unfortunately we planned our visit at a time when the weather was particularly bad, including snow, ice and freezing rain...and Pinehurst just wasn't quite up to the challenge. When I booked the room, I took advantage of the package rates for golf (me) and spa (my wife). I knew it could be cold, but I was ready for that. I...

Needless to say this place is a great place to stay if you are golfing BUT if you are here for a conference or other non-golfing reason be warned this is an old property: The rooms are so poorly sound proofed that the clearing of someones throat in the next room is heard as if the person was in your...

First trip with 28 other gentlemen. We were treated with a great professional touch immediately when we arrived. Check in was quick and clean. Everyone of the staff I encountered was also very friendly. They made me feel relaxed the nature time I was there, which released my tight spending habits. I ended up spending more than I originally planned,...

Attended a Military Ball here and stayed one night. The grounds are lovely and the hotel is Southern Charm at its absolute best complete friendly smiling faces and rockers on the front porches. Of course there is golf-lots of golf to be played here-we weren't here long enough to do so but from what we saw the courses looked really...

Stayed at the Carolina Hotel for 2 days for a conference. The facilities were nice, and seemed like there were some great amenities, but I had to work :(. The rooms in the Carolina do not have any type of buffer from the hallway like a more modern hotel, i.e. having the bathroom, closet, or hallway at the entry to...

Last week my wife and I took our first trip to Pinehurst. We are both golfers and had been looking forward to playing such a historic course. We did not expect the hotel and surrounding area to be so beautiful. Coming from New England, the Southern charm was a breath of fresh air. From the moment we checked in, the...

first time actually staying at the Carolina. I've been there many times while staying in the area. We always hang out at the Ryder Cup Lounge at least one night each visit.

Dinner was great. The room was great. The service was over the moon. I have been here before and stayed, but this time our room was larger than before and the bathroom was very nicely appointed with tiles and clean white coloring. Incredible sense of cleanliness around the whole resort. We were on the 4th floor, and it overlooked the...

Full of history. Staff was amazing and very helpful. My second trip. Very relaxing and the golf was great. Love the tea and cookies they have every afternoon. Cute shops that are walking distance from the hotel. We will be going back.
