“Lovely,cosy & comfy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

I really enjoyed staying in the caroline, it was comfy, close to restaurants and the beach. The kitchen with fridge allowed you to either keep drinks cool or food fresh and gives you the choice to eat in or go to the beach side restaurants for a meal. Lovely location, homey and great value for money. Would definitely recommend!

Stay away from this place! The floor was full of sand and dirt. Hair all over the bathroom. We needed to use the sofa bed, but as soon as we removed the pillows we saw even more dirt. Luckily we were only staying one night, and we chose The Caroline for its proximity to the Ft. Lauderdale airport.

Tammie the manager was angry that we arrived mid-afternoon. She nastily said she almost gave our room away, even though we texted her in advance as requested. There are no online reservations or confirmations. Frankly, Tammie's eccentricities scared me and my son.

There was no was no way to print out our boarding passes here, as the office closed in the afternoon shortly after we checked in. We had to drive around looking for someplace open on a Saturday evening. The only positive was that we just had a short drive to the airport.

This is a great small hotel off of A1A that was a great price. I love that set up with the tiki hut and the personal touch. The room we got was clean and fresh. We came in late but the owner got us squared in no time. The room comes with a fully functioning kitchen along with a TV and sofa. The bathroom was clean with lots of towels and a big closet. The manager was great and gave great advice on places to eat and visit. Definitely a great place to come again. Planning on going again in Sept.

We loved our room with everything we needed. Tammie offered us the best price we could find which we appreciated very much. It is very closed to the beautiful ocean. It was easy to keep the room cold for good sleep. It has nice garden around which makes it cosy and nice in spite of a road very close but we didnt mind it. It may be little too noisy for somebody who needs perfect quite for sleeping and doesnt mind paying more somewhere else. Tammie is quite special character and we liked it and enjoyed it very much. She made us feel home and we were very sad to leave the place and we would love to return in future.

We stayed in unit 11 for 1 month (Nov. 2012) The motel is great!! Very safe and secure. The suite was very clean and comfortable with everything you need while away from home. Tammie the manager is GREAT!! she goes way out of her way to make you feel comfortable and at home. The location is fantastic just 1 block from the central beach in Hollywood. We would highly recommend this place.
