My sister, her kids and I had a wonderful weekend there. Nice room at a good price, nice people and a beautiful beach. Carolina Beach is definitely worth a trip. Hope I can come back because I loved it there.

Nice Motel right on the beach which we loved. Rooms are what you paid for not 5 stars however it was clean enough! The front desk was very nice and friendly. You get what you paid for no private balcony or any of that either. We were happy to be able to make a reservation in a short notice 1... More

We stayed at this hotel for the weekend and we had a excellent experience! The hotel staff were very kind and helpful. Don't let the older style of the building fool you. The cosmetics of the room weren't perfect but the room was very clean. If I had one suggestion it would be to upgrade the pillows!

It's an older hotel but a clean hotel with friendly staff. We had to book a smoking room but there was no smell of smoke at all. Room came with a microwave and mini fridge but there are other rooms with small kitchens. Would definitely stay here again, my only issue though is with the parking. The lot is small... More

Great little hotel, south facing along the beach so all rooms have a view. Staff is friendly and patient. Rooms are very clean. I'm a non-smoker, but had to book a smoking room because that was all that was available, but I could hardly smell it at all! Plenty of towels, plenty of space. Family-friendly.

I went to the beach to mourn the loss of a dear family member. I was greeted with support and kindness and treated the same way the entire 3 day 2 night stay. The room was clean, had everything I needed, fantastic views of the ocean, the beach was more private, the sunrises magical, the shells endless. It was the... More

While the hotel itself is older and looks it for the most part, we still had a positive experience. The hotel is right on the beach just like the more expensive places, but half the cost. The rooms were clean and the staff very friendly.

Wow, love the new look! My favorite place to be on vacation year after year. You guys are always updating and I love it. New mattresses, more seating around the pool. Great job! Wonderful staff as always, from office to housekeepers.

This was an pretty decent ocean front motel but needs some updates. I'm not that picky, but there are a few things here that need improving that wouldn't cost a whole lot. The room rate of $135.00 is fair for this hotel. First off, the location of this hotel can't be beat! Get a room on the second or third... More

“no elevators so decide if you want better ocean view or easier access”

“The end rooms do have the only chance of seeing the ocean but as other reviewers note, that does encourage others to linger outside them.”

“our second floor view nearer the ocean was beautiful ! The only difficult thing was lugging large suitcases up the outside stairs.”

“As always, the top floor rooms on the far end (nearest the ocean) are going to provide the best views.”
