U.S. News Review

Three different hotels — The Carolina, The Holly Inn and The Manor — comprise the whole of Pinehurst Resort, which crowns the Pinehurst Golf Club in central North Carolina. All three options boast spacious guest rooms and classic Southern decor with bright, neutral tones and elegant-yet-cozy furniture. Of the choices, previous guests strongly recommend booking a room in The Carolina, which has been welcoming visitors for more than a century. You'll have access to all of the sprawling resort's amenities, which include The Spa at Pinehurst and eight versatile eateries. You can also spend your time partaking in a few of the countless activities available on the resort grounds: Kayaking, fishing, walking tours and tennis are just a handful of active options.
