I need to arrange lodging and dining for a fairly large group (looking like 18-25) in Pinehurst.
We need to be budget friendly and we need to be convenient to the Catholic church.
A place that can accomodate folks with mobility issues would be great, and a restaurant with a private seating area that can a be flexible with dietary concerns would be needed, too.
I've never been to Pinehurst, so other than knowing that its a big golf resort oriented town, I'm completely at a loss.

I live here and therefore cannot help a ton with your lodging/dining request other than to say that pretty much anywhere in Southern Pines, Aberdeen, and Pinehurst (where the hotels are) would be pretty much "convenient" to the Catholic church. It's a small area and I don't think any of the hotels are more than 5 miles away and none are next to the church.

There are a number of decent places to stay, but the affordable-accessible-onsite dining combo seems to limit things a lot from what I can think of around here.

I'd call the places to verify, but here's what I can think of:
-I think the Homewood Suites has dining and might cater a private room. I do know they have conference rooms.
-The Carolina Hotel at the Pinehurst resort certainly has food and they are the closest to the church, but they aren't cheap. The resort will do whatever you want for the right $$
-The Days inn in Southern Pines is an older place, but it has a restaurant and the potential for private dining rooms.

Especially if you can toss out the on-site dining requirement, I think there are a number of reasonably affordable options with the chains.

Sorry, didn't see that it reads as though we need on site dining. We don't.

That makes things much easier. There are any number of hotels that will probably work then. I'd check Tripadvisor or other sites for reviews. I know I have heard a lot of good things from people staying at the Hampton Inn, but again I can't give much first had info on accommodations here.

Is the restaurant requirement just for one specific meal? Generally what are the dietary issues? Veggie, salt, fat type concerns or something a little tougher like gluten free?

Sorry for the delayed response, recip. I'd forgotten that I had a question here!
The lodging issue is resolved, but I'm still working on lunch.
We need a place for about 18 people, and the dietary concerns include diabetes and seafood allergy. I think if we an stay away from "primarily fried", and have choices with standard Luncheon fare we should be okay...my biggest concern is that the service be really good and the food well prepared and reasonably priced. We're dealing with "older" folks here and waiting for anything can be a problem.

We like this place a lot they have a private dining room and most of their clients are older.
