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:...

Very uncomfortable! Felt like we were in a prison group home or institution the way the rooms were set up and the way the staff watched the cameras and Guests . They would make better security guards than hotel staff. Not friendly at all and for the price you would think you get a decent, room, and staff. The rooms... More

Stayed here: August 6 th - 10th 2014 We were very pleased with the room, no smell or odor like other motels we've stayed in the past. It was nice that the air conditioner was already running and it was nice and cool and clean, newly remodeled bathroom,and the beds were fine. Loved the ice machine being there, very convenient...
