“Very nice room and a great location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2010

His was a huge relief after the place we had to stay the first night! My room had a window that faced the ocean. The hotels sits perpendicular to the beach, so the balcony had a view of the ocean, the pool, or the main street where all the people pass by. It's a shared balcony, so not great for romantics, but a good way to meet others.

The room itself was very nice, large, clean, and had a kitchen like area where you could sit at a dining table. There was a microwave, fridge, and nice modern cabinets. Only drawback was the light from the balcony shinning through the window at night. Not a big deal but it was pretty bright. The hotel staff were very nice and accommodating. The pool was nice and clean.

The location is excellent. Right on the beach and an easy walk to the boardwalk area as well as several nearby restaurants and convenience stores.

Took our chances when we couldn't find any vacancies online and came across the Sea Witch. It was simple but very clean. It suited our needs perfectly. Loved the convinence to the beach and the Board Walk. Our meal at the cafe' was excellent. The four adults each ordered something different on the menu and then we divided our meal into 4. Everyone got to sample each of the meals ordered. I couldn't pick a favorite! They were all wonderful. I hope that we will be able to there once again if I ever get a chance to go back to Carolina Beach.

When you go...tell them the black and white FJ cruiser sent you. They are under new management. Wonderful friendly staff made me feel welcome from the start. The end rooms next to the beach are big. Have refrigs and microwaves. Little kitchen area with table and chairs. Very clean and within walking distance to boardwalk and other areas. Sea Witch tiki bar across the street had great food and beautiful atmosphere. Very friendly staff too. Walked in during the afternoon, talked to the manager, went back that night and he remembered me and made a point of speaking to me and asking how my food was. That's service.

We found the Sea Witch online and were excited that we had found a nice place to stay with a cafe. We have a family of 6 and they offered a room to accomdate us.
When we got there we were pleased with the price of the room and the room was pretty decent but the staff wasn't all that great, not a lot of help and there was no cafe. It had been closed. I found the website to be misleading.
The overall vacation was good and the beach was nice as well as the pool.

In terms of the actual motel, it basically served it's purpose, which was an affordable place on the beach. My group felt slightly mislead by the website, with it's marketing of the cafe & the boardwalk, both draws for staying at the motel.

The motel is basically on a strip with other hotels & motels, which not much else in the walking area. Both downtown Wilmington & Wrightsville Beach were about 25 minutes away.

Complaints -
The Seawitch Cafe, advertised online & even in the up-to-date travel guide provided by the Motel, is closed with no due date to open.

Parking is limited. There are not enough spots for at least 1 car per room. Parking at the closed cafe is not permitted, so guests may be forced to park at the pay-for-parking lot a block or two away.

The boardwalk was actually a strip of concrete with a neon sign that says "boardwalk" off the actual beach that stretched only a couple blocks. Many of the businesses along the boardwalk were closed down with the exception of an ice cream place, an arcade, a dive bar & miniature golf (not putt putt).

  • Liked — beach front
  • Disliked — cafe closed, less than subpar boardwalk, limited parking
