Golf was excellent!! Enjoyed the staff as they were very attentive and helpful. Rooms really need updating as the furniture, carpeting and bathroom fixtures were old and in some cases didn't function well. I stayed with a conference group and requested the Carolina but they do not guarantee the lodging and was put at the Holly. If you make a... More

The Carolina Hotel is a beautiful old hotel with a lot of charm. The hotel is beautiful, but couldn't understand how a four star hotel still has a step-in bath tub with a shower curtain for a shower stall. The lights in the bathroom were energy efficient bulbs, but I couldn't see to put on my makeup, and almost fell... More

Check another item off your bucket list and come and enjoy! We stayed in a Carolina suite so had a bedrooms with a connecting large sitting area. Basically they combined two rooms. Thus suite was in the Inn and it overlooked the pool. We stayed 3 nights and had two days of golf and a spa treatment. Excellent free work... More

My husband had a conference in Pinhurst. It was also our wedding anniversary. We enjoyed staying in the hotel. I love that it is older, all the floors are a bit uneven and the doors a bit crooked. What could be better? A place with some history and character. Our room was lovely with a comfortable bed, beautiful bathroom, nicely... More

We typically do not write reviews unless it's a 5 star experience. My husband and I travel around the world, and stay at luxury hotels. Many hotels may be rated 5 stars but overall service doesn't come close. The owners of this hotel both alive and passed on should be smiling from ear to ear on what an incredible staff... More

Recently participated in a tournament at the Pinehurst Resort For those of you who do not know Pinehurst has many lodging options from hotels to condos. I stayed at the Carolina-the "premier" property on the resort. I also play #2,4,5,8. Review all separately: Lodging: The rooms at the Carolina are well appointed but on the small side. The bathrooms are... More

The Carolina has definitely seen better days. The rooms are in great need of total remodeling. Before we even unpacked, we had to call housekeeping to come dust the furniture. Everything was covered in a layer of dust. The housekeeper told me the hotel is "just old". The commode would hardly flush, the shower leaked all over the bathroom floor... More

I felt I should write a review as I have of other places I have stayed this year. This property is an excellent resort hotel, excellent staff, excellent service and super great food. Of course there is golf, and golf and even more golf. The Spa is very good, first class. I do not know what to say other than... More

I took my wife to the Carolina for a special "monumental" birthday and it was a tremendous success. The staff at the Carolina were exemplary and friendly while providing top drawer service. We had a couple of small issues within the room and they were rectified immediately. The room was very comfortable and the sleep was "like a rock" due... More
