The owners are nice. The suite was clean. It's oceanfront and has a small pool. It's within walking distance to everything. It allows pets. Those are the positives. The place is pretty run down and needs a ton of updates. The back porch was basically just a place for guests to smoke. The bathroom was tiny and so was the...

Beautiful place with a reasonable rate. My children's first trip to the beach and they definitely weren't disappointed. The rooms were spacious and clean. The manager responded quickly by text if we had any questions although it was the off season and most employees worked other jobs. Woke up the day we left to a beautiful snow. Can't wait to...

We went during the off season to enjoy the solitude. While the location was lovely, rooms cozy and beachy, we definitely didn't get the solitude. This is a very family friendly facility. There was one family staying there with a family member with traumatic brain injury. They would just leave her out on the (only) deck, and I felt as...

I have been to the mermaid manor twice this year and I returned the second time because I had such a great time even on one of the busiest weekends of the year, the Fourth of July. When you arrive you are greated warmly by two amazing live-in managers that go above and beyond to make your stay at Carolina...

The beach was very nice and we enjoyed our stay. We stayed in early September and had a nice stay. The ocean water was warm and the beach was nice and sandy. There is a pool at the hotel that was very nice as well.

My mother and I (and her wee four footed baby) stayed at the Mermaid this summer...we LOVED it! Tamara and Chuck made sure we had all we needed for a perfect stay. The room was great...clean and comfy....and the location is great! Definitely a great place to stay!

We headed to the Mermaid Manor for my son's 6th birthday. He requested a trip to the beach so we headed to the Mermaid. I was a little hesitant to stay at a pet friendly hotel being allergic to dogs but it was not an issue! The rooms were very clean. No hair lingering under furniture or beds. Our suite...

Tammy and Chuck made us feel like we were at home. In fact we are making the mermaid our home this off season. If you want great hospitality and be a able to throw a rock and hit sand this place is for you. It's pet friendly. Great place to bring your kids or just have a great get away...

Would highly recommend staying away from this hotel. When we arrived, we found a dirty refrigerator, with water standing under the vegetable bins, and bits of food in it. The toilet looked like it had not been cleaned and needed flushing, and the toilet area smelled like urine. We should have left when we first arrived, but of course had...

I reserved this Inn last minute and the host was very accommodating. My suite had a full kitchen and separate bedroom. The pool was an added bonus. The place is located within walking distance of bars and restaurants. The place is on the beach, big bonus for a last minute rental.
