The Carolina at Pinehurst is an old hotel that is well kept by a very professional staff and management. Due to its age, there are some areas of the hotel that are not up to 5 star standards, but they are really inconsequential. I would rate this hotel at 4 and 1/2 stars, if that were available in the Trip Advisor rating system.
Anyone coming to Pinehurst must be coming for the world class golf. We drove to the resort and checked in to the Carolina after a considerable drive. Everyone who greeted and assisted us was professional, friendly and most accommodating. Our room was fresh and clean, but showed signs of age. The Carolina is a wooden structure and there was a slight slope in the floor of our room. This can't be helped, but I was always aware that it was just a little uphill to walk into the bathroom.
The breakfast buffet is a terrific feature. Great breakfast food, excellent service and a comfortable table make each morning a happy one. Jackets are requested for dining in the main dining room at night. As wonderful as the breakfast buffet was each day, the dinners shined brilliantly. The service was attentive and the dishes offered were of outstanding quality.
If you are a serious golfer, then a pilgrimage to Pinehurst should be a great priority. When you go, I recommend The Carolina without reservation.
