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

We stay at the Carousel twice a year: winter weekend and about a week in the summer. It's reasonable and in great location, with Food Lion and restaurants within walking distance. You don't have to leave the resort unless you want to. Also, there was a Jolly Rogers (pier) discount offered to guests. Our daughter brought a friend on vacation... More

We checked in on the 15 and we're not given the condo we booked, but a handicapped street view hotel room. If our youngest child wasn't 4 we would have stayed. The next morning we went to the front desk to change rooms and they moved us to room 462 it was beachfront and clean and it had a out... More

I think there was some confusion on your part when you made your reservation. While we do rent condominiums, they only rent from Saturday to Saturday as weekly rentals in the summertime. What you booked was a standard non-oceanfront room. We are very happy that we were able to accommodate you into a larger oceanfront room and that you enjoyed... More

My family and I stayed at the Carousel 8-9-2014 to 8-16-2014 in 2 condos and were extremely disappointed with our experience. Not only were we unable to dry our clothing after washing them, but only one shower was in working order in the first unit with the option of scolding hot water or freezing cold water. In the second unit... More

My husband and I decided a family vacation was long overdue and booked room 711 a few months ago. I was in contact with Julie Schmidt, the Director of Condo Rentals, from the beginning. Julie was always very quick, helpful and very nice when I would email her with a question leading up to our vacation. Wesley at the front... More

While the location is great, the hotel needs major updates! I agree with others that the elevators were extremely slow, the stairways smelled like garbage and were extremely dirty. Fingerprints were on all glass window sand doors. Food in the Hotel restaurant wasn't too bad but the service was terrible.

We would love to get more information from you about your stay and whether you were in one of the hotel owned condos or in a privately owned condominium that is not part of our rental program or part of the Carousel Hotel. There are 190 condominiums in the Carousel however only 100 of them are rented by us. The... More
