Lady who's in charge of the Motel at first was nice but then problematic. She doesn't let any visitors come visit you, she's a stalker (Very intimidating), Gives you all kinds of problems, racist, two face, etc.... I personally don't recommend people to stay there not even for a mimute. The building probably was made in the 1800s. The kitchen... More

I've been here twice and have two more weekends booked. I can afford much more pricy accommodations, but I choose this place. Not a lot of bells and whistles, no room service, no restaurant...but management is friendly, I can bring my dog, its clean/ quiet, convenient, and I love that I dont have to deal with the issues that come...

Well, I'd like to first start by saying, if you are looking for all the finer things in life then perhaps you should either stay home or find another place. This is an older home that has been converted to a motel. The location is perfect and my husband and I found it on a whim when he and I... More

Firstly, there is a reason that this place is #11 of 15 in places to stay at Carolina Beach. We arrived late in the evening due to car trouble. When my fiancé checked in he said the smell of dog feces and alcohol was strong. I personally saw the owner/manager stumble onto the front porch after he checked in. I... More

My husband and I had a terrific time @ Mermaid Manor. The managers Patty & her husband were great. She always asked us when we ran into her if there was anything we needed. They did not bother you or knock on your door. We like that it is a quiet place...not a party place. Thanks Patty for a wonderful... More

Ever stay at a friends place, and think, wow, they really want us to be comfortable? Well, this is it. There are ups and downs with the place, but I'm going to say that my family had a great time, we felt very comfortable. The managers were super helpful with us, but weren't intrusive at all. I saw some reviews... More

Just finished a week of bliss on the ocean! Mermaid Manor was my capsule away from the reality of "the grind". My ocean view room allowed me to enjoy the ocean even when I wasn't outside and the rocking chair deck was large enough for me to feel like I "had my own space" even when other guests were on...

Why anyone, who has any experience vacationing at a beach, complains about Mermaid Manor, mystifies me. Yes, it is rustic. Mermaid Manor is ocean front even though there is a sand dune--sand dunes are a component of a healthy beach. Towels, sheets, soap, toilet paper, microwave, and mini refrigerator are provided and they are clean and fresh. One guest's review... More

I rented this room for 1 night. Told the lady at the desk that it was 4 of us. We was kicked out in the middle of the night because my teenage son and his friends came to the room. I was told she didn't rent the room to them. The lady was extremely drunk and causing a ruckus. I... More
