We loved this property so much!! The lady who helped us to our room was so kind. They had coffee and water and reusable cups that were a life saver. We stayed with our 1 year old and she loved it. Easy walk to the boardwalk and the beach. We would highly recommend!

We read the positive reviews on line and decided to give Carolina Beach Inn a try since we travel with our pups. I am happy to say that we were not disappointed. The accommodations were excellent and provided everything we needed. Many nice perks were provided as well, from the beach towel to beach gear and insulated travel cups. Much more than we expected. Our room was roomy, comfortable, quiet and the ink keeper was extremely friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Carolina Beach Inn if you are considering a stay in the area.

We found this gem by happenstance. We were looking for a last minute getaway and everything was booked. I happened to call the Inn and Debi graciously offered to book us in their beach house which had just had a cancellation. Plus they welcomed our 2 golden retrievers! We have been back a couple of times since then and they are always accommodating to our last minute requests and last minute extensions (when they are able.) I would highly recommend the Carolina Beach Inn and their beach house! Debi and Thomas are wonderful hosts and the accommodations are perfect. We feel lucky to have found both this amazing Inn and super hosts!

Another terrific visit to Carolina Beach Inn with the grandkids. Location is within 1-1/2 blocks from ocean, restaurants, arcade and fun! We recommend everyone to experience "southern hospitality" with Debi and her staff by staying at the Carolina Beach Inn.

The Carolina Beach Inn was an enjoyable stay. Great location, relaxing and very charming rooms. The owner, Debi was very kind and hospitable; she gave us a tour of the inn upon check in along with a brief history. We plan on coming back next year. Highly recommend :)

My family and I had an excellent stay at Carolina Beach Inn this past week. The room has a “cozy vibe”. I would recommend anyone to stay here and we can’t wait to come back and visit! Perfect location and great hostesses.

This was a great little getaway place. The location is two blocks from the boardwalk and everything that one is looking for on a beach trip. They accepted us with warm open arms and a great attitude. The decorations and room layouts were beautiful along with the comforts of home. For anyone who travels you know q-tips are always forgotten to bring, this was the first place ever to have q-tips in the room. They offered us beach chairs, towels, and water bottles free of charge. Rooms are cleanly kept, and the deck was an added plus. Our pet was welcomed with treats and a blanket. Would differently stay again and highly recommend it.

Excellent location close to beach, etc. Very clean. Decor perfect. It could have been perfect but my stay was ruined by noise and barking dogs. I arrived extremely tired but no way to nap with a deck being built onto my room. I was lied to twice about builders finish time. I believe you should not rent the room and charge full price. I was on first floor. The family next door took over the porch outside my room. They smoked and sat outside my door for 3 days. The room above me was rented to a person that never stopped walking on the wooden floors. Opening drawers, dropping things and never sat still. Very strange. I was disappointed in my stay. The guests and dogs ruined my get away.

We booked a last minute stay at the Carolina Beach Inn. We were truly pleased to have found such a wonderful place, dog friendly, convenient and quaint. Debi is a truly caring host ensuring every need is met, even had a dog treat and blanket for our Bailey. Debi was readily available for any questions. Recommended dog friendly restaurants. Very clean. We will be booking again soon.

We loved the Inn. Very clean. Well decorated. Loved the artwork on the walls. Very pet friendly, our pet’s first trip and she loved the accommodations. Close to the beach and all the restaurants. Quiet relaxing vacation. Nice cool front porch with rocking chairs. Debi and Tom are warm and friendly innkeepers who are ready to make recommendations for dinner or enjoyment. Highly recommend this place for you and your family’s next vacation.
