My wife and I stayed here and was blown away at the size of the room, two separate bed areas, perfect for a family or two couples looking to spend time together and still have a little privacy. The staff was nice, and location was perfect, literally a 2 minute walk to the beach. My only complaint is that the... More

The hotel was center in the perfect location on the boardwalk and the rooms was clean .only thing that was upsetting was the fire alarm that went off at 7am and no staff was one hand to direct people out the building

After reading some of the reviews, I was hesitant to stay here-but I'm glad I did!! The rooms were large, everything was clean, and the staff was super nice. We stayed on the 5th floor, and had an amazing side view room (see pics). I would like to personally thank "Michael", who was the daylight front desk clerk during most... More

The room was larger than i thought it would be. Our suite slept 6 (2 kings and a pull out queen sofa. Frige, microwave,... More

Have zero complaints at all. All the staff went above and beyond, easy to check in and all around good experiences. The room was very spacious and an excellent view of the ocean.

In an unlikely turn of events, we contacted the Carousel Group management to report our concerns as unlawful violations of health code and hotel/motel practice almost immediately after check-in. Our list of complaints about this property included insufficient water supply, uncleaned rooms prior to check-in, unsanitary waste removal, etc. By the time the Tidelands management responded, I felt nauseated and...

We booked an oceanfront suite and saw the back of other hotel no view what so ever. Our room was dirty and two mini refrigerators that were in our room didn't work. The pool was filthy and so small.
