Thank you to the folks at the Carolina Resort. You made our stay fun and what a fantastic location! The patio near the pool was perfect for us to visit with friends. To see the beautiful pool all lit up at night and the private access to the beach...I can't wait to come back. See you all again in September!

We went to the Carolina Motel off-season, the weekend after Memorial Day. I think we were the only ones staying here for four days, but that was OK! The staff was very friendly and they have very relaxed personalities. We were given a room upgrade that was closer to the beach when we got there, which we didn't even ask...

My friend and I went up to OOB for a well deserved get away. My friend Linda is ailing and handicapped. The place we originally booked was not meeting her expectations, so we had to call around last minute to find another place to stay. The Carolina had a wheel chair accessible room available! Luckily! When we arrived , we...

We've stayed here twice. The rooms could use updating but every motel in OOB is old and needs updating. It is not a resort. It is a motel RIGHT ON OLD ORCHARD BEACH and next to a pirate bar that has live Jimmy Buffet music most of the time. Everyone is there for the beach, not the motel itself. The...

For what I paid per night- I received cold showers and all I got was I'm sorry. The Internet didn't work. The pool was yellowish. I ask for clean towels never received them. The surrounding around the pool was messy dirty towels left around the pool. I felt that other hotels or motels got to use the pool. The people...

We've stayed here many times over the last 13 years. This place definitely could use updating..but ...location location location! That's why we keep going back there. The private deck rooms are the best.

“Good location for the beach”

“All the rooms are only feet from the water, so they are all good!”

“FYI. Our rooms did not have A/C. The first time it wasn't that hot and we didn't notice. The second stay it was HOT and it was stuffy. We brought our own fan and made it bearable. Stay in the end units or ones at the beach end of the courtyard. The courtyard echos and is usually filled with families - so try to stay out of the first floor courtyard rooms.”
