Very nice, clean place to stay. Very nice owners. Very nice boat slips. Very comfortable rooms with great showers! Just a short walk to the beach. The décor is so amusing and customer friendly! They go by the rules and this means no idiots hanging around, parking just for people staying there and very quiet. Boat ramps, eating places &... More

This was my second stay here. Absolutely, the best experience. It is a quaint, clean, and quiet room. They knew it was our anniversary and they made it extra special for us. They make you feel like family...from speaking to you by name to the anniversary card they left for us in our room. I cannot say enough great things... More

Trish and Darrel will make sure that the time you spend here is great when it is time too get away for a few days. The prices are good and the rooms are clean and the boat slips are an added bonus. I have stayed there 2 times a year during the last 3 years and have not had any... More

I had to travel from VA to NC for a weekend wedding. A friend coming from TN booked a room at the Caribbe Inn after reading online reviews and recommended I stay there too. Pictures on the website showed a lot of pink walls and painted sea creatures. It's not the typical inn, it's so much better. Trish was incredibly... More

Can't have any guests, BAD customer service, Rooms aren't comfortable, Will yell at you and accuse you of STEALING!! We made reservations because it was pet friendly, family owned and near the resort our family stays at every year. We checked in our room and stayed one night there. The next day we were waiting for my brother and his... More

Trish L, Owner at Caribbe Inn, responded to this review

This mean-spirited, review is exactly the kind of review someone makes when their reservation isn't honest and they try and pack their room with pets and extra people. Even though it's been a year, I remember this guest well. She made a reservation for 2 adults and two 45 lb dogs and then invited another family to join her. I... More

I went with my daughter and we loved it! Staff was amazing! The owner was really nice and let my daughter pick which room she wanted. Rooms were very clean. Definitely plan to go again. Staying here was a last minute decision and a great one. The rooms decor was whimsical and fun.

We enjoyed our second visit at the tropical pink and blue Caribbe Inn as much as we did our first one. You can swim with the whimsical dolphins in your room and after a day of fun at the nearby beach you will be welcomed back by a happy giant crab mural. The inn is near the historic Fort Macon...

Very friendly place to stay in Atlantic Beach. The owners were very kind and even loaned us coffee mugs to use. Great location- just walk to the beach and pier, as well as restaurants and shops. Saw dolphins jumping and cannons fired at Fort Macon. Definitely recommended for a stay at the beach.

After reviewing the Driftwood motel next to the ferry to get across to Ocracoke Island, I thought our night was going to be a horror story! We ended up having a very relaxing night I would definitely stay again. The lady was very welcoming, she left us a welcome and safe travels note which is very nice to have after... More

I wanted to take my daughter on a mini springbreak beach trip so I did my research and I ran upon atlantic beach I decided to try it out. I then looked into places to stay and saw that Caribbe Inn has made the Top 25 Bargain Hotels — United States list. I read the reviews and saw that they... More
