If you think a hotel is a dump because the room is a little beat up and the amenities are sparse, you'll hate this place. If you're just looking for a safe parking lot, a secure door lock, a comfortable bed with clean sheets, a strong shower stream in a clean tub, and want a bargain rate, this is your... More

It's always like coming home whenever we check in. They are always so warm and friendly. At check in my husband and I were not shocked that the owner remembered us. We arrived 5 hours earlier than check in and they took our number and called us when the room was ready we were luckily able to check in 2... More

I love older beach hotels, which is why I chose this hotel. The location of this hotel is the only good thing about it. We checked in after a softball tournament for 3 nights. Other families stayed at other hotels. Our first day, after leaving the beach, another family (3 people) walked back to our hotel with us to talk... More

I just want to say that I never leave reviews, but really felt that people deserve to know what to expect from this motel. I stayed in this motel 8 years ago and from what I remembered it was nice but this place has really gone downhill. I'm not one to stay in very luxurious hotels.. I'm used to older... More

Stayed 4 nights and sheets were never changed. Microwave was gross. Ice costs .25 cents. Only plus was just 2 blocks from beach. Very noisy- from other guests, pool machinery, air conditioner. Husband had to force door open EVERY time. I couldn't get the door unstuck by myself.

This is a basic, budget, older motel 1 1/2 blocks from the beachfront. My room was clean. The staff courteous. My 2nd floor room included a small refrigerator and a microwave, small table and chairs, free WiFi, a safe and TV (the last two I did not use). Soap was provided in the bathroom. However, there was no hairdryer, kleenex,... More

This was my forth visit to Beach Carousel and I always enjoy my stay at this motel. The staff is friendly and very accommodating at all times. The entire complex is very well maintained inside and outside. I recommend the Beach Carousel on your next visit to Virginia Beach.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean, spacious, and convenient rooms. It's not right in front of the beach but in a walking distance from it! Very nice motel. If you want to save, it's an excellent choice.

so most people visiting VB won't be expecting a particularly peaceful stay- and it's down to how noisy your neighbours are whether this is an issue. Therefore you can tolerate some noise, but for me only for a couple of nights. Reading the other reviews I was a little apprehensive but I didn't experience the issues commented on. The good:...
