First of all, I would like to thank the staff at Carisbrooke Inn for advertising that that are an LGBT friendly establishment. I was looking for a Christmas present for my boyfriend of three years and stumbled upon a great Groupon for the Carisbrooke Inn. The value was perfect but I wanted to first make sure we would feel safe there. To my surprise, the homepage included a rainbow flag and sent me to a page full of LGBT-friendly places around Atlantic City. I immediately decided to purchase the Groupon and book my room and I am very glad I did.
We stayed in Room 5 for two nights and loved it. The bed was very comfortable and while the bathroom was a bit small, it suited our needs. The room and the Inn in general were very clean.
Moving on to my favorite part of our stay, the breakfast! As I said before, this was my first experience at a b&b so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect for breakfast. Both mornings started with a bowl of fruit and a home made pastry. (Speaking of home made, the cookies that are available 24/7 are delicious) The first morning we had the best pancakes I have ever eaten and the next day we had eggs, breakfast potatoes and toast. Both of those meals were served with two pieces of crispy bacon. I am still thinking about those pancakes and we are going to try to make our own with the recipe and tutorial on the website!
The staff was great and very knowledgeable about happenings at the casinos and local restaurants.
The location was great in that you could drive to the casinos in minutes but were far enough away to have a peaceful night. It's also seconds away from the beach which, obviously, did not prove useful in January.
We definitely plan to stay again sometime during the summer to enjoy the closeness to the beach.
As I said before, I would highly recommend this b&b for anyone!
