“A true find in Atlantic Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We stayed at Caribbe Inn 8/6 - 8/8. Would have probably stayed longer if there was a vacancy, and I can understand why they stay booked. What a neat place, a blend between Key West/Caribbean decor and landscaping. A great change from the cookie cutter chain hotels. They are pet friendly, we took Buddy, our dachshund, he loved the place also. It sits on the inter-coastal waterway and a short two blocks from the great beach. The rooms are very clean and include everything you need, and the price can't be beat in Atlantic Beach. Trish and Darrel are the best hosts and are always there to assist anyway they can, they make the place. If you get the chance to visit and to stay here - go for it, you won't regret it.

My husband and our 4 year old daughter decided to take a spur of the moment trip to the beach. We got lucky and were able to book one night at the Caribbe Inn. It was so cute and the owners were so hospitable. Our 4 yr. old couldn't stop talking about the inviting nautical painting on the walls. I will tell you it was the CLEANEST room we have ever stayed in!!! The owners made a point to remember our daughter's name when talking to her. We all got a Tootsie pop on arrival!!! We will absolutely spread the word about this wonderful place. We will definitely stay again!!!

When I first found the Caribbe Inn online I thought it was just too good to be true. But this little motel is a jewel. The owner/operators Trish & Darrel Lawrence are two of the most gracious people you will ever meet. The room itself was decorated in a delightful nautical theme and very, very clean. The housekeeping services were just awesome. Everyone we met seemed to truly enjoy being a part of the team for the motel. It was my husband's birthday get-away and after leaving the hotel that morning at about 10:30 a.m. to enjoy the beach, we returned around 2:00 p.m. to find a wonderful surprise. There was a very nice birthday card and chocolates from the motel staff for my husband's birthday and it wasn't a stock birthday card either. This place is a perfect place to just get away for a day, a weekend or an entire vacation. Only 3 little short blocks to the public beach access and they even provide chairs for you to take along to the beach if you to borrow them. They are so nice and we will definitely return for any vacation time we spend in the Atlantic Beach area. The cleanliness, hospitality and charm of the motel is simply the best I have encountered. They treat you like family and how often do you find that these days? We love this place and if you stay there you will too!

We pulled into this hotel after driving by another and we instantly knew we had to stay there. The staff was very friendly, and very courteous, but in a laid-back style. The paintings all around, and the overall look of the hotel were very unique. A very short walk to the beach, and even usable chairs by the hotel guests. Not very many people write little notes, thanking their guests, and this was the "icing" on the cake, so they say. Definitely a recommendation not only by a NC native, but a from a european visitor as well!!! It is the eight world wonder :))

My wife and I spent our annual week-long vacation during July with Trish and Darrel at the Caribbe. They are the nicest people you'll ever meet and they make you feel right at home and part of their family. The rooms are so comfortable and cleanliness is their NUMBER ONE priority!! We are looking forward to our next visit!! I definitely recommend The Caribbe Inn for anyone visiting Atlantic Beach!!

We were looking for a place to stay that allowed pets and found this through Tripadvisor. We've been to Atlantic Beach, NC many times but somehow never knew about Caribbe Inn. The hotel is not new but everything was incredibly tidy. The owners take a lot of pride in their property upkeep and they were also very gracious and friendly. We rented #14, and efficiency on the end of the building. The small but complete kitchen was well supplied with utensils, including stainless steel pots that were not teflon coated, thank goodness! Being on the sound side, the prices are much lower than beach side, which was fine with us. We either walked a few blocks to beach or drove 2 minutes to the Ft. Macon State Park which has nice facilities, lifeguards, etc. This area offers a lot to do besides going to the beach, and this is a great place to base your travels!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here in July 2013. Trish and Darrel were very kind and even offered a card and candies to congratulate us on our recent wedding.
The rooms were very cute and clean, and the hotel was a great distance from the beach. We could easily walk there, but since it wasn't right on the beach, the rates were extremely affordable.
I would recommend the Caribbe to both families and couples. It was perfect!
