The really low rate for a partial ocean view seemed like a great deal, but we were given a room on the second floor with a balcony that overlooked a side street. The problem was the dumpsters located right below our room. The loud noise of them being emptied at 6:30 am - 7:30 am served as an obnoxious alarm... More

Traveled here for a long weekend. The location was perfect for us as we did not want to be in the middle of the craziness of the boardwalk area. Location was perfect to walk to mini-golf and restaurants. The room was average. We had a pool patio room which I would recommend against as the pool is very small and... More

We stayed on the hotel side - ocean front view. Spectacular view of the sunrise and beach - well worth the money just for the view. But there's so much more! Ice skating rink (inside), nightly free ice skating shows, ice cream shop and souvenir shop ONSITE, indoor pool, outdoor pool, outdoor bar, free chairs for the beach, movies for... More

I have stayed at this hotel several years. This year was the one time I had to seek management help. I had two rooms reserved in my name, one for me and one for my parents. After check out my parents realized they left behind some rings in the hotel. The manager said she would get security to go and... More

Fifth floor, no balcony. Room was clean but needs to be redecorated and the bathroom needs to be remodeled. The entire staff was extremely polite and helpful. The property is right on the beach and has indoor pool, skating ring and play area for children. Inside bar and dining room. Outside there is a beach bar. Sometimes the music can... More

The outdoor pool is not very good. Small & not many lounge chairs. Very confusing how to gain access to the pool area. The woman who works in the store selling souvenirs was very rude every time I went in. Ice skating show nice but short. Workers don't go out of their way to make you feel comfortable at all....

We wanted a hotel right on the beach that could accommodate 3 adults and two kids (11 and 13) at a reasonable price. The Carousel turned out to be a great choice. Our room had two queen beds and a sleeper sofa. It was clean and roomy with a kitchenette and balcony. The staff was fantastic especially the servers at... More

We enjoy our stay at the Carousel each time we stay. It's a nice resort, with a friendly staff and nice atmosphere. We enjoy eating on location, the pools and ice skating. Of course, the beach is fantastic.

Resort is nice, regular employees are great and the atmosphere is awesome. The only drawback, which everyone on the resort complained about was the elevators. The elevator doors close to quick. People trying to get carts and beach gear in and out of the elevators had to fight with doors closing on them. These elevators do not have sensors on... More
