My friend and I went up to OOB for a well deserved get away. My friend Linda is ailing and handicapped. The place we originally booked was not meeting her expectations, so we had to call around last minute to find another place to stay. The Carolina had a wheel chair accessible room available! Luckily! When we arrived , we... More

We've stayed here twice. The rooms could use updating but every motel in OOB is old and needs updating. It is not a resort. It is a motel RIGHT ON OLD ORCHARD BEACH and next to a pirate bar that has live Jimmy Buffet music most of the time. Everyone is there for the beach, not the motel itself. The... More

For what I paid per night- I received cold showers and all I got was I'm sorry. The Internet didn't work. The pool was yellowish. I ask for clean towels never received them. The surrounding around the pool was messy dirty towels left around the pool. I felt that other hotels or motels got to use the pool. The people... More

I have been staying here almost every year for the past decade and after my stay last week, I can say that it was my best stay to date.

We've stayed here many times over the last 13 years. This place definitely could use updating..but ...location location location! That's why we keep going back there. The private deck rooms are the best.

After reading some of the poor reviews for this motel I felt I needed to share my experiences. My family and I began going to the Carolina from the year it opened and, to this day, I continue to go there every Labour Day for a week's stay. The beachfront rooms are literally steps from the beach and the view... More

The staff were really pleasant and helpful . The rooms we found to be a little outdated but very clean and comfortable. We also thought the location... More
