We just stayed in the villas at the Carolina this past weekend. There were 7 of us total in our group and we each had our own room off the common sitting/kitchen area. Overall a great experience from a golf/spa perspective. It was very easy and seamless to get from one location to another within the entire Pinehurst area. I... More

This was my second opportunity to visit the Pinehurst resort, staying both times at the Carolina. I was part of a very large group of golfers (this time, 210 of us). The resort and golf staff handled the large influx of us (and of course other guests) with efficiency but without being rushed. Breakfast buffet at the Carolina dining room... More

Our overall experience was a good one despite the Inn. The rooms are a little tired but reasonably comfortable. Beds were very soft in our room so not sure if it is possible to request a firm bed. Service was very good and staff friendly.

Although I am not a golfer, I stayed at the Pinehurst in connection with a conference. It is truly a lovely property. The building and grounds are immaculate. The best aspect of my stay, however, was the staff. Everyone, from the valets, front desk folks and restaurant servers, to the housekeepers and turn down workers were cheerful and pleasant. One...

I recently stayed in a condo to visit family. It was centrally located on the golf course, great for a morning cup of coffee! Did not get to play golf this time, but had a great afternoon by the pool. Had a wonderful lunch with great service. The pool menu was innovative and light! Try the shrimp wrap!

I surprised my wife with an overnight trip to Pinehurst for Mother's Day with my two daughters. The Carolina Hotel is historic and brimming with southern charm. We were given a corner king. The room was large and although the furnishings were historic, it had very modern features. We spent time at the pool which is large and has a... More

The good: Excellent staff and most guests seemed to be friendly. Quiet and sophisticated atmosphere. Great golf history. Huge porches with rocking chairs. Walking distance to quaint village. Complimentary bicycles. Delicious food in Dining Room. Nice spa, but no quiet relaxation area, nor outdoor area. The not so good: No in-room coffee - have to go downstairs to coffee shop... More

Amazing Sunday brunch. Large and comfortable rooms. Excellent front desk and bellmen. Located right down the street from the main Pinehurst Clubhouse the famous #2 course. Walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Pinehurst village. Whenever in Pinehurst, we look forward to our stay here.

This could be a really long review because of just how outstanding Pinehurst Village is! Suffice to say it is a world class resort in every way with world class personnel in every aspect of their operations. It has a unique and quaint atmosphere with a down-home friendliness wrapped up in very efficient professionalism. Expensive, yes. But you'll probably never... More
