The hotel is in a good location for Carolina Beach. Carolina Beach itself is sort of a "throw-back" beach, meaning it seems lost in time. If you ever went to O.D. or Cherry Grove in the 1960's and 70's and liked it, this is the beach for you! Mostly family owned businesses in this area. We went off-season so there...

Four stars! Minor carpet issues were resolved quickly by the manager. Friendly staff made my Starbucks coffee in the morning: hurray! The beach is at your feet. The sea will lull you to sleep at night. Yeah the bed could be better but a positive experience all around. Clean and well maintained. Oh another suggestion: have the staff at the...

All rooms are oceanfront. Rooms on a higher floor should provide better views of the ocean. The elevators seemed a little slow considering there are only 10 or 11 floors. The room was very spacious. The hotel is a tad worn but that should be expected because its always booked. The bathroom lighting could be greatly improved and the exercise...

A bit disappointing for a Marriott, but it was a beach front. We were upgraded to a suite which was spacious and clean, but worn down. Hotel does need upgrading and does not include amenities like other courtyards such as complimentary breakfast and toiletries ie: shampoo ,lotion. There was only one bar of soap.
