An excellent value for golf package. Breakfast in main dining room is a treat. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Holly 1895 restaurant. Some rooms a little dated but still a grand experience. Tremendous service from staff.

Stayed for 3 nights at The Carolina in May 2014 as we wanted to play #2 - we generally like to stay at "golf resort" type properties (Pebble, Kiawah etc). However, the rooms here were not what I expected. I do realize that the hotel is over 100 years old but so is The Lodge at Pebble Beach. Pros -...

I have stayed in the Carolina twice and the Holly Manor once. The amenities of the rooms is unmatched in my opinion! A very nice walking resort with local shopping and restaurants both off and on property. Shuttle runs constantly or grab one the bikes and pedal through the beautiful surroundings. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure...

Love the Staff at this hotel and lazy afternoons rocking on the front porch!! We were in town to visit family with our infant and the hotel could not have been more perfect. Expect "old" - bathrooms are tiny and not 5 star but the overall experience MORE then makes up for that!

The service was superb, the golf was great, the food was out of this world. You pay for what you get. I never mind paying for superb, and that is what you get. Played before the US open, incredible. If you love golf, this was great, don't miss Pinehurst!!

Deserves at least 4.5 stars and I almost gave it 5 rather than the 4 since 4.5 wasn't an option. Went for a brothers golf trip. This place is a golfing mecca. We were there a month before they host the US Open for both men and women on back to back weekends. There was also a car show that...

We stayed here for 5 nights- attended the weekend golf school & wanted to add additional nights so we could also enjoy the resort. Staff is really wonderful, front desk check in & out was quick & efficient. Our room was small, but we truly were only in the room to sleep & shower so wasn't a big deal. Mattress...

I was here for a convention. The food and facilities were very good. Service was good to very good. I golfed twice - #2 and #6. #2 is overbooked. We were quick and the starter kept following us to move us along. He may have thought we were late for our tee time, as the prior group did not show,...

My husband and I stayed at the Carolina for the last 3 nights for a golf getaway. We went with another couple and played three great rounds of golf at courses #4, 2 and 8. The golf experience is fantastic - courses are beautiful, challenging and well maintained. The Carolina is charming. The outstanding part of the experience is the...
