“Good experience at a great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We've stayed here before and enjoyed it, but the price went up and for the last 2 years, we went elsewhere. Now the price is equitable and we came back. Acommodations are similar to the other place we stayed - quiet and comfortable and most staff try to make you feel comfortable as possible. People with handicaps, however should be aware that parking clos to the hotel is almost non-existant. They do not have priveleges with their sister properties accross the street. They say that parking is accross the street, but it is a block away and uphill. There is valet parking for $8 a night, but that kills the price advantage so you may as well be down the street. Also the wait for valet is not always convenient. On stree parking is available and free in the off season, but spaces are few. Be aware that the associated restaurant that is "just accross the street" is a block away and up 5 steps. You can avoid the up by going in the far side at the back, but you may as well drive there. If you are able bodied, the place is just great. Not so for many old snowbirds.

Room Tip: We choose the 1 bedroom condo with washer and dryer because we like the convenience of a washer/drye...

Excellent weekend experience and customer service; great views and winter options
The hotel staff were professional and courteous; they offered helpful local options for Sunday brunch and special dining experiences; the restaurant associated with the hotel was very nice; wait staff were friendly; due to off season volumes, there was less food volume; wait staff made every opportunity for us to have food that we wanted and sufficient quanity; breakfast buffet was very nice; full complimentary breakfast buffet both days

Room Tip: Corner suite was large with a view of the ocean

My sister and I scooted our Mom away for the weekend to the Carolinian for her 80th Birthday. We stayed in a clean and well-equipped condo in the Tower - beautiful ocean-view suite with a sunny veranda, comfy LR and nice kitchen with all the comforts of home. The very wonderful Polo (porter-extraordinaire) made us a fresh pot of their excellent coffee in the lobby both days and was so helpful and pleasant, and Robert in Guest Services had great suggestions for our activity options. Polo, Robert and the rest of the staff made us want to come back again and again (in fact, we're thinking of getting away to the Carolinian as a yearly off-season escape! A little brisk in January, but still better than the teen temps we left behind in NY. When you can sit on the veranda and hear the roar of the ocean and see the majesty of the sea right in front of you, witness the sun sneaking up over the horizon in the early morning and breath in that fresh, salt air, it makes you realize what's really important in life. Experiencing it all with my Mom and Sis was priceless... Thank you Carolinian for making us feel so welcome!

Room Tip: Room 1832 (18th floor, 2nd from top) is ocean-front with 2 baths and 2 BRs, sunny, beautiful veranda...

The staff did not let us know about the breakfast tickets when we checked in, we were only told after we specificlly asked, "Didn't our reservation include a breakfast?". This was on the second day of our stay. There was trash left in our room from a previous occupant and it was obvious the bathroom was not cleaned so well. One of the box springs under our king sized bed was broke which made the whole bed sit at an angle when sleeping. After two nights of this we mentioned it to the front desk and we were pleasently surprised to be given another room. I thought it would be great to finally get a good nights sleep, but at 3 am the smoke detector started beeling because of a dead battery. As I searched for the annoyance I found a second smoke detector unplugged and sitting in the closet. These people don't even change their batteries regularly and this obviously was not the first time this had happened to someone in the same room. Oh, and as I was looking around at 3 am I notice two places in one of the rooms where the poporn is peeling off the ceiling. Needless to say I am not planning on going back.

Room Tip: I stayed in two and they were both horrible. Please read the above review and be forewarned.
