The resort looks great. Big and spacious rooms in the main building. Clean and hospitable. Friendly service. Loved the complementary WiFi throughout the property. Very good food (enjoyed the Thanksgiving special and the morning breakfast). This place is quite famous for golf, but we had a great time at the SPA (truly excellent) and visiting the area. The Christmas decoration... More

This was an amazing two day trip. We were fortunate to be there when the Inn was decorated for Christmas. It was beautiful. The rooms are immaculate and words cannot describe the breakfast buffet. We also dined at the Inn for lunch and dinner. All meals were excellent. The staff were courteous and knowledgeable. I am sure the golfing is... More

This was our first visit to the resort. The staff is very attentive and the accommodations are very good. Wish I had more information about how the resort conducts business for example... gratuity included for some and not others would have been nice to know up front. The only thing that disturbed me was the noise that came from our... More

There is a reason why The Carolina at the Pinehurst Resort enjoys such high praise - it deserves it! Their customer service is 5 star, all the employees are friendly, helpful, and provide top notch service with a smile. The hotel is like visiting a wealthy aunt in her 100+year old home, the rooms are comfortable, understated and classic. Extra... More

Spent 4 nights with friends and enjoyed Pinehurst's True Southern Charm. The guys took advantage of the unbelievable golf courses, while the girls enjoyed the spa and shopping. We met back in the evenings for dinner. Everything we experienced was over the top! Enjoyed dinner at The 1895 Grille and The Caroline Dining Room. The Breakfast buffet was such a... More

Beautiful grounds, wonderful food and service. We enjoyed our two day stay. All guest services people made us feel welcome and comfortable. Expensive but worth it. Golf was extraordinary in this historically significant setting.

Extra nice, old southern charm!! What's not to like?? Certainly if you play Golf, some of the finest golf anywhere in the USA. Very close by are neat shops and good dining. I was there on business and our functions were catered and handled by the hotel. They did a nice job! Highly recommend!

You first see the Carolina hotel as her spectacular view slowly unfolds on a tree-lined street. A big, white, beautiful, grand, old hotel welcomes you in perfect southern style. As you drive up to the entrance, a bevy of attendants help you with your luggage and complimentary valet parking. Registration check-in was as smooth as can be--everyone is ready for... More

This is a must see for a first timer to Pinehurst - walk the hotel, find the nooks, think about the history. Dining in the Carolina Room - always a pleasure. Best thing by far - a cocktail on the veranda!

It does not get any better than a Pinehurst as a golf destination. Top notch friendly staff. Make sure you visit the Pinecrest hotel and bar and chip into the fireplace your friends and patrons. One of the most unique things I have ever done - lots of history going back decades. I cant believe it is even possible to... More
