“Carolina Best Western - Condo Unit 1633”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

The South Tower I was told by hotel employees was built in 2004, the other section is much older and the exercise equipment is located in this buildings third floor. They also have 6 computers off the side of the lobby to use and a complimentary printer you can also use.

Condo unit 1633 has an excellent view of the ocean and awesome south view of the beach from the living room.This South Tower/corner unit sticks out further then the other Hotels on the beach. The bedrooms also offer an excellent south view. Both bedrooms connect to a second balcony to sit and enjoy the afternoon sun sheltered from any strong winds off the ocean. The unit was very quiet at night, never heard any noise from any adjacent units.

I would of given this condo unit a 5 star rating if they would replace the living room couch/fold bed and the one lounge chair with more comfortable furniture (My Only Real Complaint). The couch/extra foldout bed and chair are very stiff to sit on for more than 30 min!

Everything else was excellent. Internet was free with no access codes, there is no DVD player in this condo, but we used my laptop connected to any one of the three TV's to watch a DVD Movie.

We were treated very nice by all the Best Western Hotel employees, they were very helpful with any questions we had. The Hotel Front Desk will give you an access card when you arrive which you will need to swipe to access the south tower sliding door to access the elevator after 10 p.m. We were also unaware until we arrived that we could also use all facilities at the Anderson condo unit next door as well as 5 other condo units along the strip that Best Western Group also own. The Anderson condo has a bar on the ground floor overlooking their pool and beach.

It is a very short walk to the parking garage but found this reasonable. If you are concerned about security at night you can always pay Best Western the $8.00 per day to have the unlimited valet service. The parking garage was well lit, had an elevator and we had no security concerns.

There is a Starbucks a few blocks down Ocean Blvd an approx, 7 min walk if you want your morning jolt.

I would consider staying at this Condo again!

Was very nice oceanview room. We loved the location and view. It was very clean and we loved the outside balcony. Too bad it was not warmer. We would have liked a continental breakfast. We were very pleased.

Great place, great service, staff was very nice and helpful they switch my room to one with balcony infront of the ocean and in the first floor without charging extra. The only thing is that they don't offer continental breakfast other than that the place is perfect for vacations.

I booked this hotel based on the many excellent reviews on trip advisor. If you noticed they were mainly based on the suites there which I did not book as I did not expect to cook etc. There are two towers there and I think the one tower is all suites and is newer that the other one there has the rooms and suites (I stayed in the other one which definitely shows it age). Also there was another address number which was 2604. The room was just okay but there were several things that I experienced that would have made the room better. The biggest complaint was the noisy air conditioner. You could not hear the TV when it was on. The shower curtain was put on backward and the balcony door did not lock (there was no way anyone from the rooms beside me could have come over so I was not really worried -took all valuables with me daily). The phone had buttons for various services but they did not work - (had to use the "O" for the operator I guess). The final thing was the light above the microwave did not work either. Location is good as there are many resturants close by and the hotel is not far from the MB Boardwalk and Boardwalk on the Beach. The housekeeping staff were very friendly. The only other drawback was the free parking that was one block away.

Room Tip: You might want to book a suite and make sure it is in the newer tower if possible. The only way I th...

Checked in and loved the room til I checked out the bathroom. The bathtub was disgusting with hair and soap scum and the bathroom floor still had hair on it. Let the front desk know so they could send someone to clean. Instead, they upgraded us from a king room to a one bedroom condo and threw in breakfast for both days of our stay. Was not expecting this. The condo was superb. The only complaint was no wifi reception. Will definitely stay again!

Stayed in a 2BR oceanfront suite that was great. Best beds ever! Service from check-in and throughout was great - courteous team that is guest-focused. The location was also perfect, not too far but also not too close to the busier section of Ocean Blvd. Great experience overall; would stay here again!

Room Tip: Go for oceanfront! Worth it!

We enjoyed our room and the service provided by all. The disappointment was that there was no bar or dining area. Magnolias is good, but would prefer just to have something on site.

Tracy was excellent and the housekeeping was done nicely. You need to check the bathtub for mold. It wasn't overwhelming, but not nice to see. We also enjoyed the balcony everyday.

The level of service was excellent. Free parking was a big plus.

Room Tip: The corner King Suite was very roomy. Our friends came for coffee one morning and the 8 of us were...
