“Very nice but very expensive in season”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We hardly ever go to the beach during peak season due to the crowds & high cost of accommodations but with a few days off, decided on the spur of the moment to go this past Saturday. We should have arrived on Friday because by Saturday there were almost no rooms to be found & if there were, there was a 2 night minimum but we were only staying 1 night. Finally found 1 at the Microtel Hotel after almost giving up.
Pros: An excellent hotel. Room was spacious (2 Queens plus a long cushioned window seat). In room mini fridge, a safe & cable tv. Beds were large & comfortable. Everything was very clean. Towels big & fluffy, hair dryer provided as well. Staff was wonderful, very friendly, efficient & helpful. Pool was a great way to cool off. Vending & ice machine near elevator. Restaurants & shopping very close to hotel.
Cons: Biggest was summer price. We paid just over $200 for one night. I can see that at a luxury oceanfront hotel in peak season but not one so far from the water. Shower head delivered very little water (possibly a water saving method), could hardly rinse shampoo from my hair. Shower exhaust/vent is inefficient to handle steam so steamed mirror was a constant during showers. A free continental breakfast was provided & staff kept up well with keeping items supplied which included coffee, juices, cold cereal, prepackaged muffins & other breads even a make your own waffle machine. I'm sad to say that I didn't eat breakfast due to the crowd. It wasn't the hotels fault but I went downstairs twice trying to get a waffle but could hardly get close to the waffle maker. With only a few hours left before check-out & several things we wanted to do such as a quick trip to the beach itself, a last minute dip in the pool & a shower, we decided to skip breakfast.
In speaking with the manager at check-out we were told that the hotel franchise doesn't even provide a waffle maker, the manager kindly took it upon himself to provide one which was very nice & considerate of him.
Personally, I prefer to stay beachfront which is much more convenient. It's a very long walk (we always drove) from the hotel to the water or boardwalk.

Room Tip: If planning a visit, plan ahead & maybe get a good travel discount from a travel site.

Having never stayed at a Microtel Inn & Suites before, I was struck by how small the rooms were. Perhaps I should have guessed that the 'Microtel' would be an indicator of the room size.
The hotel was clean, and the desk clerk helpful and attentive. The property was clean both inside and out. The continental breakfast was pretty much the same as the breakfast at other hotels we stayed at during our trip.
Other than the smallish rooms, the Microtel Inns & Suites Carolina Beach was a pleasant place to stay.
