This Marriott is right on the beach. Hotel rates are dirt cheap in the off season. Jan 2015, they are totally rebuilding the boardwalk out in front of the hotel (beach side). The hotel is right next to lots of shops and nightlife (mostly in the summer). Winter/off season, there are still quite of few places open. Great for families....

Hello, Thank you for your kind comments regarding our staff and our hotel. I’m glad you liked our central location! One of the best parts about our hotel (aside from the staff, of course!) is the great location right in the middle of Carolina Beach. We actually get a lot of business travelers that stay with us even in the...

Driveway to hotel was not the best though. Once inside this is a really nice hotel. Large lobby, modern décor. Friendly fast check in, pre booked on Marriot site for a great AAA deal. Elevators quick to floors. The king room is big and I liked the layout of the furniture. Bedding was real comfortable. Air unit was a bite...

We also have a noise conditioner that will provide white noise if you are a light sleeper. We hope when coming back to the beach you choose to...

I won't lie. I've been coming here for nearly 12 years now, which constitutes most of this hotel's existence. I love the layout and the fact that EVERY room is an oceanfront room, BUT, I am not blind to the fact that there have been changes, not all for the good. I don't think it's been too long since the...

Right on the ocean! Every year Carolina beach and a Kure beach rotate having New Year's Eve celebrations with fireworks and a DJ? Location of this marriott was great. Clean hotel. Staff were very knowledgable about the area and very friendly too. I'm from Chicago and it was heaven sitting in the hot tub.

Visited the weekend after Christmas. Very nice room. Peaceful stay. Easy access to the beach via boardwalk. New boardwalk being built. Looks like it's going to be great. We should go back when more businesses are open (summer).
