We stayed here last summer...Ocean City is a fun vacation. Beach is beautiful and there are plenty of things to do and great food. The Carousel was a nice place to stay. Rooms were spacious and clean. Staff was friendly enough. Loved the out door pool...didn't use the indoor one but was nice to have a choice. Skating rink was... More

The carousel is a hotel/condo combination that advertises as a "resort". The facility does in fact offer quite a few amenities to include free beach chair use (although note that this is limited to two chairs per unit), a beach front bar and grill (although a little pricy), inside snack shack, restaurant on site, mini store on site ,indoor/outdoor pool,...

My birthday happens to be in December and rarely get to travel. Well I lucked up and went to Ocean City for my birthday and the weather was perfect... like close to 70. It was a surprise birthday weekend in Ocean City at the Carousel. I was pleased with the hotel because they had a big ice skating rink in... More

I am a bit late in reviewing our stay. It was cold out and snow on the ground and we wanted a nice weekend getaway. The staff was really nice and very helpful. We live near so we are familiar with the area. For me the beds were not comfortable at all. I didn't sleep for two nights, however, I... More

Nice hotel for kids, lots to do. Close to beach. Pool too crowded. Cleaning not too good. Lumpy pillows, bed wasn't comfortable for me. Our room needed thorough cleaning (woodwork, & other hidden areas). Wasn't so bad that would prevent me from coming back. Loved the outdoor movie and the coupons. Had a wonderful time and enjoyed ice show. Convenient... More

Friendly people, great service, good value for your money! There is plenty for the kids to do right at the hotel so you save some money. Kids love to ice skate. Its nice there is an indoor and outdoor pool and its right of the beach which is very nice.

My wife and I took a last- minute trip to The Carousel as a little getaway. Everything was perfect from check-in to check-out. Staff were very friendly, attentive and professional. The restaurant was fantastic from service to the meal. The nightly ice show was very entertaining. The lounge was very cozy and inviting. The beachside bar was a little slice... More

We stayed in the hotel part of the resort. The room was a very nice size, clean and had the expected view that we reserved. Check in was a breeze and the room was ready early. The elevators were quick & the use of beach chairs was a nice addition. There is plenty to do right there without leaving. The... More

Found a last minute deal and came to OC for the weekend at Carousel. Our room was incredibly dated. The carpet was pretty gross, the bathroom tiles were cracked, and the chairs in the room were filled with sand and so lumpy and gross. Additionally the decor was super dark and made the room seem so gloomy even thought I... More

Im sorry to hear that you had a disappointing stay. We were built in the mid 60s but each year we do many renovations. Hearing that the ice rink is just shocking, we get many compliments each day. I wish we were able to discuss your concerns while you were at our property. I hope your next trip meets all... More

We stayed at the Carousel in June. We had a nice time. The hotel is in pretty good shape for its age. The rooms looked like they had be recently updated but there was still peeling paint and stains on the wall. Overall it was a nice room but was expensive for what was offered. It's high tourist time at... More
