Service was friendly and professional. Food was outstanding. On the pricey side but worth every penny. Presentation was a feast for the eyes. If you want delicious food and excellent service make early reservations.

Since our family is scattered throughout the U.S., we chose Pinehurst as our Christmas destination. And what a magical stay it was! From beautiful decorations to delicious everything, life music at meal times and four o'clock tea, one was convinced Pinehurst got elves working on their staff. We stayed in two rooms in the grand Carolina Hotel. There was definitely...

We had the pleasure of spending the weekend at the Carolina Inn for the Our State Magazine weekend. What a treat! We had a snow storm and the staff went above and beyond. The bell staff helped clean snow and ice from the cars and the facilities staff kept things warm and the sidewalks clear. Dining is superb. The breakfast...

We have visited the Village of Pinehurst several times on golf packages and always longingly walked through the Carolina Hotel, hoping that someday we would stay here. Finally, we attended a conference where this was the home hotel! The hotel is old and historic and of course very charming! The staff everywhere was welcoming and helpful. Our room was traditionally...

We come here every year in December with the family. Absolutely beautiful resort. Great historic hotel, good food, festive atmosphere, and amazing golf. When we leave, I mostly miss listening to piano music while eating breakfast each morning.

When a friend mentioned going to Pinehurst for New Years Eve I was immediately on board. I had spent a nice NYE at the Homestead in Virginia, but Pinehurst is closer and was less expensive - so I signed up my husband and myself and another couple. NYE package includes dinner, dancing, midnight breakfast buffet, sit down breakfast in morning...

We stayed at the Carolina Inn last year, and had an awesome experience. Came back this year, and will never go back. It is still beautifully decorated around Christmas, but I would just drive by. Hole in wall when we checked in, had to follow up on getting housekeeping to come to our room, maintenance called several times for lights...

Huge Resort Hotel; Lots of walking. The Bellmen were courteous and helpful. Did not like first two rooms but bellman worked with front desk to locate a room more suitable except it had two regular size beds. It was a cold weekend and I had trouble regulating the heat. Great housekeeping staff. Small village with great restaurants and shops within...
