This was our second visit to this motel and our first stay was excellent back in Mid July. The new live in manager couple back in July were both very friendly and genuinely concerned with making sure we had a great stay. Even though we checked in late, they got out of bed to check us in and went out... More

I have no idea how this motel was able to receive any 5 star ratings. We got there very late and it was dark, the pool was sparkly and there were colorful patio chairs outside the rooms. The inside of the room was terrible, however. Besides the large black insects common to the seashore the room was clean enough, but... More

After an hour of looking for a hotel for the night in Carolina beach we decided that we would settle for about anything. We were calling Russo's motel and the man on the phone advised us to pay for the room over the phone because rooms were filling fast (there was only 15). We did not see any pictures of... More

We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations on the size of our rooms. We did notice that at no point in your review did you mention that your room was not clean, only too small. We apologize for the size of your room, but we were built over 50 years ago. To address some of your concerns:... More

Even though we had a bad experience last year with the old management we decided to give them a second chance & it was... More

I spent a week there and may be spending a few more. The hotel management were very nice and cooperative. The room is what you would expect for the cost. It is an old facility so you can not expect miracles. The tub could have been replaced, the room could have more outlets (possibly hid behind beds?) but over all... More

When looking online, we saw that this place had mixed reviews and given how difficult it was to find much information online about Carolina Beach hotels/motels, we decided to give it a shot. I really wish we hadn't. We paid before seeing the room. I won't ever make that mistake again. The place was filthy. We didn't even want our... More

The two good things were the location and the people running it were nice. The bad: The sheets on the bed were not clean, the comforter had burned marks and some stains that were rather bad. You had to pull the door hard to make sure it locked otherwise you could still just push it open. The security lock was... More

When you and your adult relative came into our office, we explained to you that we only had one room available and it had two FULL SIZED beds. You translated what I had said and the man agreed and paid for the room. Your family went into the room and stayed for about 30 minutes, at which time the two... More

My Husband and I have stayed at Russo's hotel twice now, and each time we have been so excited about staying. The rooms are perfect, and view is great, and its just a walk down the rd to the beach. I am looking at coming back some time soon, We absolutely LOVE staying at the Russo's Motel.
