Booked 2 nights for a family getaway at the beach. Rooms are clean but no air conditioning! Left after one night and got a full refund due to all the young people partying until 4 in the morning. All were hanging out outside their room and were loud and obnoxious with no respect for other guests. Tried to call the... More

We stayed at this motel the beginning of August 2016 and it was perfect! You don't have to lug your stuff from your motel to the beach because this motel is ON the beach! Amazing views of the ocean and Pier. Very attentive staff and clean rooms. The beds were extremely comfortable. The best kept secret of this place is... More

Don't let the negative reviews fool you! This is a great place to stay! It may not be the most modern or fancy, but it is clean and comfy. All the rooms have a kitchenette, which is a great convenience, and a money saver, too. The pool is heated and clean. You literally walk off the pool patio right onto... More

My family and I have never been to Maine. As I was researching, I came across Carolina Resort Motel. I booked right away. When we arrived to the motel, we could not believe how close it was to the beach. The staff of the motel made our stay anazing. They are helpful and friendly. I would book this place again.

Thank you to the folks at the Carolina Resort. You made our stay fun and what a fantastic location! The patio near the pool was perfect for us to visit with friends. To see the beautiful pool all lit up at night and the private access to the beach...I can't wait to come back. See you all again in September!

We went to the Carolina Motel off-season, the weekend after Memorial Day. I think we were the only ones staying here for four days, but that was OK! The staff was very friendly and they have very relaxed personalities. We were given a room upgrade that was closer to the beach when we got there, which we didn't even ask... More
