“Can't beat the location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

I stayed at the Carriage House for 8 days this summer and really enjoyed it. It's just one block from Deerfield Beach, just two blocks from the restaurants and shops - yet quiet enough at night to rest. Because it's situated on a central courtyard with a pool that you cross to get to your cars, you have an opportunity to mix and mingle with the other guests. I have never stayed in a motel that was so friendly, or ended up meeting such great people. And the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room is nothing fancy but for the price this is an incredible find.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

This is a very good motel. We had one of the least expensive rooms (2 double beds), and we were pretty happy with it.

The motel is located a block from the ocean, and there is plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance. The property is nice and quiet during the week, but gets busier during the weekend. The walls are very thin, you can hear conversations from the next room, and you can hear plenty of road noise especially during the weekends. That is my only gripe with the motel.

It is an old property, but the staff is working hard to keep it up. Everything was in good shape, and everyone I talked to was very friendly and helpful. Be sure to tip housekeeping, they do a really nice job.

Free wifi is a great feature, free parking as well, and the pool was very clean. There was around 100 channels of cable tv, more than any motel I have stayed at before. The air conditioning worked excellent in the room (very important for south florida). The room included a mini fridge, which was great for keeping soda and water cool.

Remember, this is not a luxury hotel, it is a motel. The quality of the beds and the room is not going to be 4 star, but everything was very clean and kept up the best they could.

I would stay here again, but next time I would spend a little more for an updated room with a king bed and a flat panel television. They offer a bunch of different room choices, and we were on a budget so we chose the least expensive.

This is one of the best values in South Florida period. Shop around and you will see that many other places are charging resort fees, parking fees, and fees for Internet access, etc etc.

Deerfield Beach is VERY nice, and less busy than some of the other beaches. Being a block away from it is absolutely great.

This is a delightful motel. One short block from the beach and walking distance from several restaurants. We stayed in 109 a large efficiency with a small but very workable kitchen, a hugh closet and a very nice bathroom. The staff is very nice. The walls are a bit thin so neighbors can be heard but it wasn't a problem. We booked a return trip, and will continue to do so.

Based on the tripadvisor.com reviews, we chose to stay at the Carriage House Resort Motel last spring, and it was just as we expected ... so we're back again this spring. No, it's not a 5* hotel, but it is clean, friendly, charming and about a half block from the beach ... and isn't that really what most of us come here for - the beach? It provides just about all we need when we're going to spend as much time as possible in the fun and sun on the beach. If we come back to Florida next spring, we will definitely be staying here.

Stuart,
Thank you for your great review. It is good to hear back from our guests whatever their impressions might have been but it is a great pleasure to receive a review that specifically mentions that the guest felt the personal support by our staff. One of the definitions of hospitality is: the art of making others welcome, comfortable and at home. Everyone in our staff strives to make every guest feel our gracious hospitality.

Very friendly and charming little Motel close to the beach, Daniel, Suzana, Flavio and Claudia are like a family and they are allways ready to help you with everything, shopping /restuarant recommendations and advise, street or way advise etc. With the help of Daniel you don't need a GPS anymore, he draws in seconds a little map and you arrive to your destination faster than using a GPS.
My daughters Nintendo DSi had an european plug and run with 230W. Daniel immediately went to a electrical shop and find the proper plug with a electricity transformer for us.
Rooms are clean and confortable, Furnishing, A/c and TV.s are a bit dated.

Room Tip: If you are a family ask for room nr. 209 and 210. Both are conected to a living-, dining-room and a...

Location 5 stars.
Cleanliness 4 stars.
Do the photos make it look bigger/better than it really is? YES!
This is a very dated place. I don't think there has been any physical improvements sine the 60s judging by the appearance. It's small. The pool is small. The rooms are small and there is limited parking.
However, if you want an inexpensive place to stay that is one block from the ocean, THIS may be your place. Weekly rates are reasonable for what you get. As you can see from other reviews, some come back year after year. Once was enough for me, however.

Room Tip: I think there are kitchenette rooms that might be a little larger and maybe not as dated.

It is nice to know that we had as a guest a traveler that is so familiar with Deerfield Beach. Many of our guests come here from places that are only a few miles away for a short "stay-cation" to go to the beach, relax and get away from their daily routines. The Carriage House Resort was built in 1967 to operate as a motel but with the idea of offering the guests the conveniences of apartments therefore 24 out of the 30 units have fully equipped kitchens and offer ample space so guests do not feel cramped. Only 6 are standard hotel rooms such as the one in which the reviewing traveler stayed. We are constantly renewing our furnishings, decorations and amenities. During the last few months we upgraded the furniture, the bedding, drapes and window dressing for many of the units. The Carriage House Resort has a standard size pool (16' X 30') surrounded by a beautiful common area with tropical plants and flowers. There is one parking space for each unit. We offer clean, comfortable accommodations in a safe and friendly establishment at very reasonable prices in a location just steps away from the beach and at walking distance to many great places to eat.
