I rented a 2 bedroom ocean view condo in the 33 range which gives you a full wall of windows that overlook in the boardwalk direction. The staff is very courteous and friendly and always greet you with a hello and asking how it is going. Being the third year I have stayed here they all remembered me from last... More

We spent a long weekend at the Carolinian, in the taller tower. The room was all we could want. We booked an oceanview 1 room suite. We landed on the 15th floor, and the view was really nice. The beds were comfortable. They are full size beds, not queens, so take note if that is important to you. One exceptionally... More

We stayed here for a winter volleyball tournament... Although the hotel in undergoing renovation in areas during the off season it never was an annoyance or interfered with our stay. Our room was large and clean (I think recently renovated), room service did a great job of straightening up our mess each morning which we did not expect :O) and... More

The room smelled like mildew. That was the first problem, second problem the carpet was absolutely disgusting. I mean take your shoes off and put your bare foot down and it sticks. We never complained because we were barely in the room, but it was something you just could not ignore for too long. The sheets were always clean, the... More

This may have been my wife's last trip to MB. She is a very sick LADY with Cancer. She depends on a wheelchair because she is too weak to walk any distance.

We had an oceanview studio for two nights. Even though the rooms and hotel are older the décor and room were redone nicely. I do think our "oceanview" room was stretching it a bit because to see the water you'd have to stretch off your balcony to see it! However, it didn't bother us too much since we weren't staying...
