My husband booked a few nights in this hotel as a little get away to celebrate his retirement. Other than the building being more run down than expected we enjoyed our stay. The whole interior needs updating especially the carpet in the elevator.

This hotel is right on the beach. Each room has a view of the ocean and there is a little deck off each room through a sliding door. We were scheduled for 2 nights but when we asked to stay an extra night to watch the Super Bowl we were accomodated at the same rate. Our room was a corner... More

Stay here for a quick trip to beach. Just a little disappointed in the condition of the hotel. I would expect the worn look at the end of the summer/fall season, but I would have thought things would have looked better by February.

Had such a fun weekend at this hotel... Clean and comfortable rooms with beautiful ocean views. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful.. Large property with nice pool and literally steps to the beach. Plenty of parking and within walking distance to a lot of restaurants, bars and shops. Would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Carolina Beach.

We decided to take a last minute trip to the beach. The hotel we had originally looked at was booked, so we stopped here. We were able to get a great rate for a nice room with an ocean view! The only thing that would improve the rooms would be a microwave in the room.
