Great location and upon entering the reception I was pleased with the appearance and standard but as soon as I walked up the stairs there was a smell of damp. Same smell in the room which was dusty and had an uninviting appearance. The window was so thin that it sounded as though it didn't even exist. We encountered a... More

I stayed at the Carlton from September 12-14. If your NOT looking for a fancy hotel, just somewhere decent to lay your head this is the place. The hotel is definitely old. The floors squeak when you walk. The doors are super old on the rooms. They look like if you put a little power to it you could bust... More

Although we had read the comments about this hotel and were prepared for worst, I'd say we were surprised. Great location. Room was clean, with air-conditioner. We booked from ebookers, there was written that every room has a mini-fridge, actually they don't. Just a casual room with TV. They have a pool, it was cleaned many times a day. For... More

I was there for a week during the Winter Music Conference. They never cleaned the rooms and would never stay there again. The floor was dirty and i had to call to get the room vaccumed. Next time i'll stay on Ocean Drive.

Front desk staff is not knowledgeable about there own hotel and some are rude. I DO NOT recommend this hotel to anyone at all unless you dont care about getting... More

Traveled as part of a group and for two afternoons a "pool party" was held at this hotel. The bar was gouging guests for drinks $15.00 for a daquiri in a six ounce cup. The pool's filters, if it had any, were not working so all kinds of crap were floating in the pool. A number of the lounge chairs... More

In the ad from Booking.com said you got a small refrigerator and they had a pool. We got there was no refrigerator, no pool (closed the entire time-looked like closed for a long time) and... More
