My wife and I had another wonderful stay at Carroll Villa Hotel. The staff are extremely courteous and helpful, and the hotel is filled with warm, comfortable furnishings. The restaurant makes the "deal" especially desirable, since breakfast is included in the room price. The people that wait outside the restaurant for a table every morning is a testament to the...

I stepped into the room, and immediately noticed a fresh scent and the clean, well maintained bedroom. The bathroom was very clean and very well kept (I was very impressed with this as I am rather particular about bathroom cleanliness). The room was snug but adequately sized for two people. You get a $30 dining credit for each morning you...

If you're considering a long weekend at The Carroll Villa, make your reservations now.

Location is key. A block from the beach and a block from the promenade. After a $35 one minute overtime parking ticket, (beware), We parked the car in the complimentary lot which was a bit of a hike.
