The rooms had some bad rating but not deserved. The room was clean. The sheets were clean, it's old but do you throw grandparents to the curb. It's right on the beach, and if are looking for an inexpensive hotel, then this is it. No sand in the room till my kids brought it in.

If you're looking for a modest hotel/motel, you can't go wrong. With low rates, clean rooms, 2 pools and an ocean view you can't ask for much more. You won't get room service or an on-site bar but you're in walking distance of many bars and restaurants and the Boardwalk. You have an option of a kitchen and 1 or...

This property is located directly on the beach, so guests are just a few steps away from the sand and surf. Additionally, most of what Carolina Beach has to offer the visitor is within walking distance. The personnel in the office and those responsible for housekeeping were welcoming, friendly and attentive. Otherwise, there are some real positives and real negatives...

This place is so relaxing! It provides my family with all we need when being at the beach. The staff is very friendly and helpful in any way. We like being walking distance to the boardwalk. Parking is easy and the pool is very clean!

Worst room and service. No phone in room. Asked for extra towels and they handed them to us unfolded, in a bundle. We found roaches crawling on our bed. Ran out of toilet paper and couldn't get more unless we walked to office. I don't recommend this place to anyone.

Room was clean but carpet was in poor condition. Floor in bathroom needed repairs. Great centralized location and great view. Parking is crowded as people without parking passes park there to go to the beach.
