We recently stayed here for 5 days and found it to be very comfortable, as well as reasonably price. The hotel does need some updating but it was very clean and the maids kept it that way. The carpet needs replacing and the air conditioning unit was old and noisy, but the kitchenette was very complete, right down to dish... More

Was so excited to be able to book this Inn since it was right on the beach. The reviews were good ... but, the condition of the unit was not. Don't expect high-end furnishings, etc. but do expect not to have "mold" present. Realize it is beach front, but the mold was very evident around the windows, ceiling, etc. The... More

The room was clean and comfortable, maid service daily. Had small kitchen area, but nice full size fridg and stove. In a nice quiet area, but close to anything you might need. Reasonably priced. Staff helpful, friendly.

The place is crawling with cock roaches! By day 3 , my daughter and I are just groomed out! The carpet is so dirty, we thought our feet were black from outside, but upon getting out of the shower, they were black from walking around in the room! Save your money. I'm afraid we'll be bringing home some unwanted pests.

We stayed here for 5 nights in one of the upper front beach rooms. The room was clean and the maids visited everyday to change towels etc. However, this room was in drastic need of a makeover. The fridge and cooker were covered in rust and there were cracks in the ceiling and paint peeling. The bathroom was the same.... More

We loved our stay here with our dog in tow. This beachfront hotel has a pet friendly section that was excellent. Call first to make sure they have pet friendly rooms available. The rooms have kitchenettes that you can stock with publix groceries a mile away. The staff were helpful and pleasant. The beach location was ideal - walk out... More

Just spent 3 wonderful days at the Carousel Inn where the families gathered for a wedding. The beach is very pretty, huge, and great for sandcastle construction! This is an older hotel, but extremely clean with full kitchen amenities. Kids enjoyed the heated pool. We also did a load of laundry onsite. Great restaurant literally across the street. The price...

My husband and I stay here for our anniversary every year. We stay in one of the two upstairs rooms directly on the beach. The room is clean, the bed is super cozy and the AC works VERY well!! It's an older place, but who cares when everything you have is there, working and clean!! The kitchen is an added... More

I got a great deal on a room during the Pirate Fest. The room was clean, the kitchen had a FULL stove (oven too) and had silverware, dishes, pots, pans and even dish soap. Full fridge and ice tray! The beds are pretty firm, but ok as long as you are tired. The AC/ HEATER is a wall mount one.... More
