I stayed here because a symposium I wanted to attend was done here. This is a beautiful place to stay. Reminiscent of days gone by. But I had to pay a resort fee even when I had no time to use resort features. The rate included dinner and breakfast, but the prices were too high. Why they couldn't charge a... More

I had been to Pinehurst several times for golf at non-Pinehurst Resort courses and stayed at a few different properties in the area (but never The Carolina). I booked a March Escape package (room, breakfast/dinner, golf) and I'm very glad I did. The Carolina is great property. The staff from the valet parking, bellhops, front-desk, and restaurant are incredibly helpful,... More

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... More

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,... More

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... More

We attended a private event for a after funeral get together. Room was beautifully decorated. Service was excellent - Lovell Brown - mgr for event was excellent in handling needs as they arose. Food was very delicious - terrific salad bar - a fantastic Pasta & very tasty Beef Tips. I would definitely go back again.

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... More

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... More

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. This time they were running a great special on a stay and Play #2. So we booked it. I must say they know how to make you feel... More
