"I truly enjoyed my experience. You don't want to miss walking the halls to experience the history of golf at Pinehurst."
"Our room had a view of the front of the hotel"
"Get a room with a walk-in shower"
"Higher floors for rooms would be preferable given my experience on the second floor."
"Suggest rooms in the main building they are very comfortable. Bathrooms are small but very functional."
