Recently rented condo 1709. We rented it through Long and Foster. It is shabby looking and way over priced. Don't stay in this unit. Either spend the money for a nicer unit or stay somewhere else. The walls have paint that is chipping, there was a whole tile missing in the bathroom, the kitchen is falling apart and the beds... More

The Carousel is an average condominium that has converted some units to rental rooms. It has been gradually re-habbed over the years that we have stayed here, but it's difficult to rehab infrastructure. That said, if you know someone with a condo here, who is willing to share/rent it, its not a bad place. Its a long way from the... More

This was the worst experience I have ever had at a hotel! The light in the bathroom did not work upon arrival. The toilet needed to be flushed at least twice before it was completely flushed! I complained to the desk and was told that it would be fixed. The bathroom light was fixed but it had very poor lighting.The... More

We recently spent 3 nights at the Carousel Hotel in Ocean City Maryland. Everyone came home with lice and their eggs on our hair. When we tried to contact someone in charge we spoke with a gentleman whose name is Patrick. He refused to give us any information regarding names of people we could talk to about this matter and...

This review is simply NOT TRUE. At no time in the history of the Carousel, have we ever had a guest report lice. This particular guest has spoken with several different managers and each time the story is different. We have gone out of our way to speak with this guest only to have our employees cursed at and called... More

Two years ago, we booked the atrium room and were really unhappy with the room. So, we talked to the manager and upgraded to the ocean-front room. That was more to our liking because the room was updated and clean. This year, we once again stayed at the ocean-front room and had a nice stay. You can't beat the walk-out... More

This was my families second time staying at the Carousel Resort. We stay in the Condo units. We enjoyed our stay but this year our unit was very dated and old. Pictures can be deceiving when you book on line. The ocean front room was great. We had a cross breeze every night. Overall we had a good time and... More

As a kid we went to Ocean City every year but I hadn't been since college and my family and I decided it would make an easy, beach getaway. Since we booked at the last minute, there was limited availability so we chose the Carousel Resort, mainly because it had oceanfront rooms available at the last minute. The best aspects... More

My family and I stayed in a hotel room at the Carousel and the room was less than average. It is dated, had an exposed pipe, floor trim missing from the wall, old blankets and dim lighting. It suited our needs for the days we spent in Ocean City but we were less than impressed. The hotel itself does offer... More

Our toliet was broken! But the manager Patrick said it was "clogged", I said we just got in the room not even 2 minutes and it was the lever, even the maintenance person who came to the room told us! Then the ceiling in the bathroom was wide open and debris all over the balcony. We didn't have a working... More

Your review is just not truthful. As soon as you told us that the toilet was not working in your room we had a maintenance person go to your room and fix it. Several of our managers have spoken to you both during your stay and after your stay and you have been quite rude to all of them. We... More
