We were at the Carolinian this past weekend with two families staying in a two bedroom unit. Stayed in the Tower block- 19th floor. View was spectacular. We thought it was a great room and a good hotel option overall. Each bedroom had it's own full bathroom, kitchen, dining and sitting area, washer/dryer and full balcony. The room was clean... More

The room was comfortable and the staff I encountered was friendly. I found trash from previous occupants, which made me question how thoroughly the room had been cleaned. The location is great, and being right on the shore was a definite plus. Be aware that the parking garage is about a block away. I would definitely return to this hotel.

May is here and it's time for my annual review so I'll keep it short and to the point. THE BAD:This hotel is no longer a Best Western the only things you will notice is the sign has been removed and the price increase.The breakfast that has been added is a microwaveable type as they don't have a kitchen to...

Great location, right on the beach, minutes from restaurants and the boardwalk. Clean rooms and reasonably priced. The free breakfast was good. We enjoyed our stay. Would suggest additional staff during check-in, only one front desk person during our check-in.

Its a great location, right on the beach. It was Reasonably priced. The room was clean and spacious. There are two elevators so no long wait. The beds were comfortable and the shower had good water pressure. The staff were very nice, but you couldn't book activities with them Breakfast included. Free parking. Would definitely go back.

Rented a 2 room suite for the first weekend of May. The pics didn't do the room justice. So many windows and a fantastic view of the beach and a lot of sunlight into the room. Very courteous staff who kept a tidy hotel.
