The other positive reviews are spot on; I adored the Carousel Inn! With its clean rooms and friendly staff, The Carousel Inn has a “Mona Lisa’s smile” of peaceful confidence. It’s not only affordable to nearly any budget, but languishes a safe distance away from the louder parts of the strip. Don't be put off by the quaint exterior, the... More

would recommend anyone to stay here! very clean and right on the beach.Very nice owners! Not as close to the pier as i thought, around 3 miles walking but can drive down in no time. We will return to the Carousel Inn on our next trip to Fort Myers!!!!

We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed the place. It is older, yes, but clean and quaint, and right on the beach. It had a small kitchen with everything you would need to prepare a meal. The air conditioning was good, the pool was very nice. Jim in the office was very pleasant. We would stay again. Our friends who got... More

Carousel Inn - Never...Never sell yourself to a corporate high rise. We loved the quaint old time atmosphere. Easy walk to the beach. Clean room....excellent customer service. If we wanted noice and nightlife, we could go down the street. Will book here every time we need a quiet get a way. Much thanks.

Family visiting the area, so we decided to spend some time with them at Fort Myers Beach. Being familiar with the area, we chose The Carousel Inn, which provided us with a very pleasant experience. Room was large, (2 queen beds), small workable full kitchen, two 'living-room' chairs, and a nice flat screen tv on the wall. Pool was next... More

Booked this place for one night as our other hotel was full and we wanted to extend vacation 1 more day. Had I been able to, I would have opted for this place for the week, mainly due the room being larger and having a kitchenette. This place is on the beach,next door to the Outrigger Resort and Tiki bar.... More

Older, clean, updated hotel. Brought our whole family here for our wedding. Walked out to the twin palm trees and were married beneath the shade with our family standing around...including our dog. Beautiful beach, nice pool, walk to some restaurants, away from the loud crowd, but close enough to drive down for a fun night at Times Square on FMB.

We have stayed here twice for 3 and 4 nights. We have book a full week next April. We simply LOVE IT! Here's why - it's a quaint old motel style inn with efficiency rooms so that you can make a cup of coffee, fix a little breakfast and have a little table to actually sit at, the location can...

Hotel was very old and in need of lots of repair. Ceiling has cracks, beds weren't comfortable, AC units didn't cool properly and refrigerator was not cool enough. However it was clean and being further down the beach, it was very quiet and relaxing which was nice not to be right in Times Square.
