I've recently lucked into a room at the Quality Inn in Sanford NC for the championship weekend of the US Open and just wanted to let others know there's still availability if you're looking for close proximity to Pinehurst. We're traveling to the US Open in June and have been searching everywhere for a hotel as close to Pinehurst as possible. On choicehotels.com (company that owns all the comfort inns, quality inns, etc) you just search Sanford NC with the dates that you'd be attending the US Open and can book online. The rate was $125.99 a night plus tax which is fairly reasonable considering most hotel rooms in the area are going for $200 plus. Hotels.com and booking.com are showing no availability so you have to book directly through choice hotels or call the hotel directly and book. We're not fussy and although the hotel looks dated, for us proximity was what we we're looking for and as long as our room is clean and safe it's fine for us, we'll be at the golf course most of the day anyway!
