Biggest thing people should know is the entire building is either set on heat or air conditioning. They turn it over in the summer months to air, but if you're there on a hot April day, prepare to sweat through the night. I imagine a cold night in late summer before they turn the building to heat would also be... More

This resort hotel was a last option of good hotels on a busy weekend. We heard from many of our friends that the Carousel was dated and not 100%. We were actally pleasantly surprised. Our room was clean and smelled hood too. We chevked the mattress and it was clean as well. Our room was renovated and nice. New carpet... More

We went to OC to participate in a Walk to support MS. Unfortunately, it was also the same weekend there was some national cheer competition, so our usual hotels were all booked up. We ended up at the carousel. We found the hotel was vintage 1980's and we had no control over the rooms temperature. Apparently since it's an older... More

The carousel is a good place for the family. The rooms are spacious micro and fridge are very convenient The boardwalk is only a five min drive. The hotel restaurants have great food and for the adults Happy Hour to have a nice refreshing drink.

First, the good: The food at the Bamboo Lounge was decent and not overly expensive. The ice rink and indoor pool were great for the kids, as the weather was awful. Staff were helpful and plentiful. The not so good: The towels were like sandpaper and small. Beds were soft. Didn't appreciate, as a hotel guest, having to cough up... More

I stayed at Carousel Resort Hotel over the Easter weekend with my daughter and 2 grandchildren. It's by far the best hotel to stay when you have kids with you. They are fascinated by the ice skating rink ( they get better every year ) and the indoor pool is huge, and they LOVE it ! Especially if you're on... More

Just spent Easter weekend at the Carousel and had an overall pleasant stay. My son loved the ice skating rink and the indoor pool. The staff....well there was not much of them. My room was just ok....they definitely need to upgrade....the bathroom is very out dated, the rooms need new linen, the entire hotel needs new carpets and why are... More

Come for the 80-degree room with no air circulation and no climate control, the screeching noise, the musty rooms with odd smells, and the bathroom shower pipes that vibrate so hard the walls shake... stay for the staff that tries their hardest to make your stay pleasant but just can't overcome all of the badness. We stayed here for an... More

We reserved two rooms both oceanfront with balconies. We were not in the condos that are also advertised. Check-in was fine; a little bit of a wait but clearly not enough staff to handle both the phones and lobby. We were informed upon arrival that we would not be able to use the front parking lot due to painting. Rooms... More
