I have stayed at the Carolina Hotel and the Holly Hotel in Pinehurst on five occasions, all in January, for a weekend of barbershop quartet singing. The North Carolina Harmony Brigade of eXtreme Quartetting meets the same weekend in January each year. The staff always welcomes us with open arms (and open ears!) Both hotels are reminiscent of Southern plantation... More

Thanks so much for the wonderful review. We're so happy to hear you continue to stay with us year after year. The barbershop quartet is quite a treat! If you love music, we hope you enjoy the piano tunes played during breakfast in the Carolina Dining Room. We look forward to seeing you again next year! More

We took advantage of the Evergreen package to enjoy our first visit to Pinehurst. The January weather was sunny and pleasant (65 degrees) and the off-season crowd was light, creating a relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed treatments at the Spa, dinner at The Tavern, a stroll around the village, and breakfast in the Carolina Dining Room. All met or exceeded our... More

It is a grand building...but once beyond the front doors of this grand lady, you might as well be at the Golden Coral!!! Dinner and cocktails in the Ryder Cup were disappointing at best from this "cradle of American Golf " beginning with the cheap photo copied photographs of its historic golf moments to the dirty, tired, mediocre service in...

I had the opportunity to spend two nights at the Carolina Inn this week! An offsite business meeting was held in another building on property and the service and accommodations were fabulous! I look forward to returning for a Spa Weekend!

We always try to stay in historic hotels whenever possible.While some can be disappointing the Carolina is not .This is a beautifully maintained property in a historic village. Well worth the detour from both 79 and 95 .

This is a classic hotel and deserves to get 5 stars. The only reason it doesn't is some maintenance and updating in the room we had. No coffee or tea facilities in the rooms, AC did not work, room was 80 and we couldn't cool it down in December. However whats not to love with these older hotels. Public area... More

The Carolina Hotel was very pretty all decorated for Christmas. I was a little disappointed with the room. It was old and had bad lighting. You had to search for phone plugs and if you found one it wouldn't hold the cords in. Nice shower and hot water. They sure did need new sheets they are old and had little... More

They just don't have their act together!!! A very nice spa- but the treatments were a mixed bag. One great treatment one day- the next not. Would like to have actually seen management - I think they hide. Beautiful hotel, but then housekeeping, just kinda worn out.

The spa at Pinehurst is not what it once was. Services were good. Massage and facial. No quiet room? Really! In a spa! Very loud and no place to relax! Just a bunch of loud women! Next time I will go to Grove Park Inn for quiet and relaxation. Forget anyone opening the door for you at the Carolina. What... More

My father and I decided to take a quick trip up to Pinehurst from Charlotte. From the moment we stepped foot at the resort, you would think that we were VIP's. Each person greeted us with a fantastic amount of enthusiasm about the resort and our stay. We played Pinehurst #2 the 1st day and it lived up to all... More
