Thank you to the folks at the Carolina Resort. You made our stay fun and what a fantastic location! The patio near the pool was perfect for us to visit with friends. To see the beautiful pool all lit up at night and the private access to the beach...I can't wait to come back. See you all again in September!

We went to the Carolina Motel off-season, the weekend after Memorial Day. I think we were the only ones staying here for four days, but that was OK! The staff was very friendly and they have very relaxed personalities. We were given a room upgrade that was closer to the beach when we got there, which we didn't even ask... More

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

We stayed for the fourth of july we had the best room there and the priciest. The first couple of nights we didnt have any hot water nor did the other rooms. Also the parking there well thats a whole other story.. If your paying for the most expensive room there then your parking should be right next to the... 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. They made a change in Management this year and boy does it show! Room was clean as ever; fresh paint, new carpets and other updated amenities added to the great location... More

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.
