My family of 4 spent the week at the Carousel Inn. While the property is an older one, it is quiet and right on the beach. It was nice having a room that also had a complete kitchen. The staff was friendly and always helpful. The location was a little south of the main attractions, but it was nice not... More

We were looking for a place on the beach. The room was clean. The staff was superb. I wouldn't hesitate to go back. This is not a full service hotel, this hotel is great if you know what you want. They have a small pool, if you want to sit out at the pool. Next door is a hotel with... More

We have been going to the Carousel Inn for over 15 yrs. The best part about the Carousel was that we could bring our dogs with us. Now there is a new owner and he has indicated in bold letters on their website that pets will no longer be welcomed. I guess he doesn't mind the rowdy weekend guests who... More

Ms. Grasso, I first want to thank you for the many years you and your sister stayed with us and to thank you for your input. Unfortunately, with any business we have been forced to make some necessary changes and not all changes are popular with everyone. Although we have always been a pet friendly hotel, this has proved to... More

First...this is not the Ritz. If you are loking for a swanky, trendy place to cater to your every need, this is not the place for you. I've known lots of people who used to go to 50s beach motels with their family when they were a kid and would like to recreate that for their own children but canot... More

We have been visiting this hotel for the past 15 years. We love the charm, the old time feel and the last stretch of beach that has not been overtaken. It does have an Old Florida feel which works well for us. Easy walk to the beach, pool is great, lots of local places for shopping, food, etc. We were... More

We have been staying here for a few years, with a couple of other families. We had previously given it four stars because although it's old and the furniture needed replacing, it was clean and pet friendly. It is my understanding that it has been recently taken over by new owners. We had high hopes that things would improve. Sadly,... More

We picked this Inn based on its reviews and price located right on the beach. It's location is right on the money. The inn itself could definitely use some updating, but for the price we really couldn't complain. Our room had a very very small kitchenette with a separate bathroom and sink. We seemed to have ended up in the... More

Comfortable, spacious room with kitchenette for a very reasonable price. Staff was friendly and helpful. The motel has a well-maintained 1960s look that is a charming throwback to earlier times on a Ft Myers Beach that has grown flashy and commercial in recent decades. It really is right on the beach, you can glimpse the Gulf from most rooms, and... More

Dated property, small kitchen, dated wall air conditioning, no ventilation in bathroom other than the window which one would probably not open in the summer. Might work ok for the winter. Great location on the beach and a very nice wide beach. Our kitty loved looking out the window. Away from the town, so not a crowded area or beach.... More

We spent five nights at the Carousel Inn and enjoyed the location and the facilities. It's an older building that holds up well - our unit was a big room with a king-size bed, a sofabed, and a four-seater high-top table; a bathroom with a separate sink and tub/toilet area, and a narrow but nice kitchen with a full-size refrigerator,...
