We visit the area often but this was our first stay at Carousel Inn and unfortunately our last. Apparently the hotel was bought and will be tore down! It is a perfect spot right on the beach with everything we needed for a relaxing vacation! Would've been our new home away from home! Sad to see it go! Alex was great to deal with!

Great stay, right on the beach. Great location, close to restaurants and little town about two miles down for walking and activities. Room has a little kitchen if you want to cook as well. There’s a Publix in the area for groceries and close to 7-11 for quick stop. According to the locals September is a great time to come because it’s quieter. My wife and I got what we were looking for, a quick quiet weekend getaway!

I have been staying at Carousel Beach Inn for the last 2 years. When I need a break, this is where I go to escape. The rooms are always clean, AC is set to the perfect temp when arriving, staff is beyond amazing and very helpful and the views are every bit of why I love Florida. BONUS! Very pet friendly. They even put my dogs name on the front door! I’ve never experienced staying at a hotel where they know you by name and treat you as if you’re family. I tell everyone I meet or know to stay here. I will be coming back again and again!

Hey Erica, Thanks so much for taking the time to write about us to the world. What an honor. As someone that has stayed here many times, your opinion matters an awful lot to us and we are glad that we at the Carousel feel like a home away from home to you and your pup Gizmo!

This was the perfect place for our stay with one child. On the beach and with a pool. It’s a very large beach so it takes few minutes to reach the Gulf. Room comes with kitchen microwave, oven , sink and refrigerator. Also coffee pot with filters I liked that. It’s a clean place even the pool. I saw the maintenance guy who was so helpful clean pool every morning. No it’s not a brand new 10 story Marriott. It’s older Florida hotels but they look after it. A clean hotel is my most important item and it was . Plenty towels, pillows toiletries and a pull out bed we had one king in the room. Bathtub / shower. All.found beds comfy ac blasts if you like it cold in room. Front staff were so nice the check in man checked room when we arrived to show us tv and make sure all was in order. We ll be back really like the location. For dinner I recommend Pinchers it’s attached to the Wyndham about 2 min away. Great seafood big menu

Big & clean rooms, steps from the beach and Pet friendly! The room have everything un need for a weekend stay, even a small kitchen. My biggest complain is that the lobby office closes at 5:00pm. If you need anything after 5:00 good luck. We where a big group and had 3 rooms. All where clean & comfy. For the price not a bad choice for a weekend stay.

Dear Naida, Thanks so much for the 4 star review! I am so happy to hear back that you all enjoyed your beach getaway and found everything clean and cozy. If there is ever an issue after the office closes, I live on property and my phone number is on the front door, as well as on the registration sheet and also connected to the office phone. But yes, all of the small beach inns on Fort Myers Beach have normal 9-5pm office hours or similar. Give us a call directly the next time you would like to stay with us. We guarantee the best price when guests call the hotel to book! Thanks so much for the awesome feedback and we hope to see you soon! Best, Alex Cass-General Manager

Very clean and basic stay, staff is very friendly and helpful, location is awesome just steps from the beach and very comfortable to bring along my furry baby. Construction next door made it a little noisy outside but inside unit it was great. Very clean pool and laundry facility very convenient

Had a nice week at the Carousel Inn. The beach is nice and the rooms are spacious. Staff was friendly and there to help if needed. The rooms have a full frig, stove and microwave. There are local grocery stores, bars, and restaurants close by. Would highly recommend.

This place is a gem. I've been coming here every summer for the past three years. Alex and Amanda are wonderful and so accommodating. I usually get a room that allows my dog as this beautiful expansive beach allows pets, which is awesome. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. I have everything that I need including a small kitchen (refrigerator, stove, microwave, oven, toaster, coffee maker, cups, plates, utensils, etc.). The location is three miles from the pier, which is just fine as it's easy to bike or drive there for food and entertainment. Such a quiet, no-frills place. My favorite place! Thank you Alex and Amanda!

Hey Martha, When I showed this review to Amanda, it made her smile. Thanks so much for your kind words and great feedback. As dog owners ourselves, we know how important it is to be able to have your doggy with you when you travel and to have them enjoy the amenities as well. Fortunately, Fort Myers Beach is a very dog friendly island. Please tell your friends and family about us, and as always, make sure to always call us directly for the best price. Hopefully we will see you again soon! Best, Alex Cass-General Manager
