Across the street from the boardwalk and beach without killing your wallet. White chocolate raspberry scone was so yummy. Not much of a selection for breakfast. But We enjoyed our stay. Service was great all staff was nice.

This motel style lodge had a 4 star rating- but barely touches a 2 star on arrival. While it is a large room with a kitchenette, it doesn’t have a view, is very dated and the bed is uncomfortable. We are not very picky, but we’re hoping for a special place based on 4 star rating on Hotwire.

The Carousel Beach Inn is in the perfect location at the Boardwalk. The room was clean and attractive. The staff was friendly and helpful. Gated access made us feel safe. Can't wait to return in the future.
