Such a pleasant surprise to find this little gem right in the heart of Carolina Beach. Very short walk to the beach and all restaurants and amenities. Immaculately clean and beds are very comfortable. Owners are very welcoming and accommodating. We will most definately stay again and recommend this location to others as well. Dennis and Vicky

Great place to stay. We were there for a long Easter weekend (4/13 - 4/17) and it was awesome. We started out on the top floor but the stairs were hard on our two elderly dogs so they moved us down to the first floor and did everything to make our stay comfortable. Very close to the beach, the boardwalk...

My wife and I visited to get away for a couple of days. We brought our two little dogs and they were welcomed here. The hotel does not have a lobby but the owner was on site any time I needed to check in/out or ask a question. She is also available immediately by phone. This little hotel has a...

My wife and I stayed 8 nights in March and even though the weather was unseasonable, Debi made us feel welcome and even upgraded us to one of the "suites" which was very large compared to the original room we had rented. We really appreciated this and enjoyed our stay much more because of this courtesy. The suite was clean...

The Carolina Beach Inn was a perfect stay for a mom/daughter weekend. A five minute walk to the beach, we enjoyed walking along the shoreline and Boardwalk. The porch was nice for sitting outside in the rocking chairs. We were able to walk to all restaurants during our three night stay. The Inn was very clean and the owner was...

My husband and I spent two nights over this Thanksgiving weekend at Carolina Beach Inn. Debi met us on arrival and showed us to our room. Adorable and had everything we needed.

My husband and I spent the weekend at this lovely inn. We were delayed in our travels on the first night and the owner, Debi, stayed up late to greet us and familiarize us with the inn. The rooms are not large, but everything you need is available to you. Very clean and comfortable. There were also many great restaurants...

We stayed for a long weekend and found the Inn very clean and hospitable. Our dogs were welcome and had no issues. Great place and centrally located with a very helpful owner. The Carolina Beach Inn is a great place and we would stay again.

We stayed four nights at the Carolina Beach Inn, encouraged by favorable reviews. We were not disappointed. Our room was not large or fancy, but we very much enjoyed our stay in a small vintage inn a short walk (200 yards) from the beach. It was nice to avoid beach parking hassle and expense (the meters run until 7pm, even...

I made a day trip to Wilmington and at the last minute decided to go to the beach and stay overnight. I found the Carolina Beach Inn online. I now know where I'll be staying on future trips to CB. Debi, the innkeeper, was fantastic...from check in to providing recommendations on the local businesses to loaning me a phone charger....
