“Great 2nd vacation here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

Just like last year, my mother and I took a trip to Atlantic Beach. Since we so enjoyed this motel last year, we stayed again. It is everything we are looking for. CLEAN, quiet, good a/c, close to the beach and some fantastic places to eat. The location is great. Beach is not crowded by the public access, and no trouble getting into places for dinner. The owners are so friendly and helpful. We had an awesome vacation and hope to return here again next year!

The back to basics simplicity was refreshing. The service was great. Atlantic Beach was so nice if you want to avoid the crowds.

My wife and I have stayed at the Carribe Inn off and on for two years. Trish and Darryl are always informative about events in the area. Did you catch the "PET FRIENDLY" in the heading? It costs $10.00 a night extra to bring your pet, This is the ONLY hotel on Atlantic Beach that is "Pet Friendly"! Renting a condo will cost an extra $20.00 a night for pets IF they are allowed at all! Wish the Carribe Inn were open during Winter months, but they close when the beach crowds leave. Only complaint I would have is the restrooms are small. There are BBQ grills for customer use. Ice can be purchased from front desk.

Room Tip: All rooms I have stayed in are about the same. Bathrooms small.

We had a wonderful time at the Caribee Inn! The efficiency room was the perfect size for a family and had a nice size kitchen if you wanted to cook dinner instead of eating out. The owners were so nice and helpful. They will even let you borrow beach chairs if you have need them! I would recommend the Caribee Inn to anyone!

Hosts Trish & Darrel were very accommodating and made me and my dog Casey feel very welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-day stay here.

Trish and Darrel, the owners, live upstairs. They are very friendly and helpful. You can tell that they take great pride in their inn. Like the other reviews point out, the rooms are over the top when it comes to decorations. You need to take your kids there at least once to see their reactions. I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, FL in the seventies. We had a swimming pool bathroom we painted in a simmilar style, but not quite to this extent.
I have stayed there twice now on fishing / boating vacations. The boat slip is very convenient and sure beats having to load the boat on the trailer every evening after a hard day's fishing! LOL. For the boaters, be sure to look at a marine chart to familiarize yourself with the channels and water depths. The channels have been dredged and marked, but you need to know where to enter and exit the dredged areas.
As far as the room itself, it was very clean with great water pressure in the shower. The only slight negative I had was that the air conditioner in room #6 was a little loud and had a hard time combating the humidity the weekend we were there. It was about 95 and stormy that week. The ceiling fan helped greatly.

Room Tip: There are 2 porch areas with a grill, porch swing, chairs, etc for socializing. Also has a fish clea...

I stayed at the Caribbe Inn on business this week. It was only for one night but wish I could have stayed all week! This little hotel has been redone and reminds me of the Florida Keys. It boasts a 100% sanitation rating, a rarity anywhere, much less at the beach. All of the interior walls were painted with brightly colored sea creatures and the exterior was equally decorated. The bed was comfy and the sheets were high quality...no little "balls"! The A/C was cold, another plus since it was 101 outside the day I arrived. I was impressed with the friendliness of the staff and, although there are rules for pets as well as those staying here, the rules keep it cute, clean and quiet for others. Although there is no restaurant or pool, it is a short 3 block walk to the oceanfront and a short drive to restaurants, shops, and other convienences. This was an excellent value, fun, and I'd recommend it to anyone!
