My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Carroll Villa Hotel this past weekend. We stayed in Room 11, which was very large and had great natural light. Upon arrival we were escorted to the off-site parking lot, driven back in a golf cart and had a lovely welcome note wishing us a happy anniversary waiting for us... More

This was my second stay at this B&B and I really enjoyed it again. Even better now since they offer beach chair and umbrella service on the beach which is only a block away. The Mad Batter served wonderful breakfasts! Everyone was so nice and helpful, even driving me in the golf cart to my car in the parking lot.... More

Recently returned from a 2 night stay in the Carroll Villa Hotel. Positives: excellent location and very comfortable beds. Negatives: Disappointing customer service.. Arrived, were given a parking pass and told not to lose it as there would be a $200 charge (if lost). Told (half-heartedly) if we needed help with our luggage they would find someone to help us...

No parking but good customer service. Hotel was nice but our door needed fixed and we had issues with it. My husband brought it to their attention but they didn't seem too concerned. Overall we feel the focus was more on the restaurant than the hotel guests.

Initially I had some misgivings. I wasn't sure on the parking and my room was in the annex, right near the bar. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, the bed was wicked comfy, and the room was fairly quiet, even with LIVE music in the bar. The location can't be beat with the beach is less than... More

I stayed with my wife and little baby girl whilst over from the UK on holiday. The hotel is brilliant! Our welcome was warm and we were helped with our luggage and even offered a lift back from the carpark (a nice 5 min stroll away). We were given loads of tips on what to do and see. Our room...
