Why anyone, who has any experience vacationing at a beach, complains about Mermaid Manor, mystifies me. Yes, it is rustic. Mermaid Manor is ocean front even though there is a sand dune--sand dunes are a component of a healthy beach. Towels, sheets, soap, toilet paper, microwave, and mini refrigerator are provided and they are clean and fresh. One guest's review...

I rented this room for 1 night. Told the lady at the desk that it was 4 of us. We was kicked out in the middle of the night because my teenage son and his friends came to the room. I was told she didn't rent the room to them. The lady was extremely drunk and causing a ruckus. I...

Remember when you went to the beach as a child? If you are looking for what going to the beach used to be like you've come to the right place. No big chain, ultra modern put ons. This is a family run business. Come on in, throw your gear outback. Track too much sand in your room? There's the broom....

Thanks Patty and Dave for your wonderful hospitality! We had a wonderful beach trip this year. I loved our stay at the Mermaid Manor. This is the second time I have stayed at the Mermaid Manor and they continue to make renovations. I was very happy with the suite we had. It fit my whole family and was very comfortable...

The place needs upgrades galore. Very old, leaky plumbing and water stains underneath the sinks. The shower water never got hot. Had to ask for extra toilet paper a few times. The air conditioner was noisy and we could not sleep a wink. Very pricey and the beach view is a disappointment since it was partialy blocked. Would not recoemmend...

Let me start off by saying that my boyfriend and I are very laid back, go with the flow kind of people. We decided last minute to get away for Labor Day weekend, knowing it would be hard to find a hotel room and that we may have to settle. I'd researched Carolina Beach hotels before and came across the...
