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,...

I spent two weeks at the Carousel Inn and enjoyed the family atmosphere. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and clean. I have been staying at the Carousel Inn for more than ten years and will continue to in the future. Nice place, good people and relaxing atmosphere. A great deal for a nice place to... More

I must say I read all the reviews before staying here and I can truly say I have stayed in almost all hotels on this island. I had a great experience in my stay. My room was probably the cleanest I've ever stayed on estero. I come to this island 3 times a year and this is a hidden Gem.... More

My mom and I needed a getaway when I arrived from the north. It was what we expected, with a twist. Our ace went out. The desk agent was great she gave us the last room. The act in there was loud, but it worked as it was 95 outside. The motel is dated, but we expected it. Remember it... More

Spring break 15, loved our king room w/kitchenette, wide, beautiful, chill beach area. Resort next door had happening Tiki Bar free music & sunset celebration every night. Staff at Carousel were so friendly and helpful, it was updated and clean, clean. Great location on quieter part of island, but plenty of everything closeby for our activities. I will return again...

I actually discovered this resort through Google Maps as I was looking for an affordable spring break hotel for my family on the beach. This place has a charm all of its own and I have to say it is absolutely everything I would want a Beach Hotel to be and that is" inches away from the beach" as you... More

Our stay was great. No it's not a 5star resort it's an older well established place with a little character. The room was clean the bathroom was good not great but everything worked. All the staff that I saw or met was very attentive to my needs. And..... You can't complain about the ocean view that is offered.
