Carriage House Resort Motel
Ranked #6 of 18 Hotels in Deerfield Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 13, 2006

We stayed in one of the hotels one-bedroom suites. Although staff was friendly enough, this hotel leaves the frugal traveler wanting more.

Rooms are clean and have the basic necessities. It is also located just a block from a beautiful public beach.

HOWEVER, it seems owners have not invested in improving the property. Be prepared for the most uncomfortable beds imagineable and a shower with less pressure than a garden hose. Also, internet is available at an additional cost, inquire before booking.

Great price for the location, but there are ample alternatives available for dollars more before accepting the subpar amenities at this hotel.

My family and I stayed at the Carriage House Resort in Deerfield Beach. Our experience of this place was that the staff were very friendly and polite. The gardens and pool are well kept and the efficiencies were clean and air conditioned. My only small disappointment was that the bathroom and kitchen could have done with updating and some of the furniture was in need of updating, but the place was very clean. We had daily maid service and there were laundry facilities available for $1 a time. I liked the white floor tiles keeping the efficiency cool and they appeared clean. We had a problem on arrival with the lock on our door and when we reported it to reception someone came straight away and changed the door lock. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. I would recommend this place for families with children (there are a good range of water toys provided at the pool) and for couples. The place is small and quaint with a kinda colonial feel to the outside veranda and gardens.

My wife and I stayed for the third time at the Carriage House (this year will be our 4th)coming from Ontario Canada.
Our room (efficiency) has always been roomy, clean and well serviced (the maid service even did our dishes!). Being so close to the beach it's an excellent value. Rudy,Suzanna, and Daniel treat us like family, they are wonderful. When the hurricane hit before we left, we had no communication as all phones etc were down and flights were cancelled. When we finally could speak to each other it was the day we were to arrive. They did not charge us any fees and we re-booked for two weeks later when full power was restored. Try to get that with any corporate hotel-type booking. Can't wait to go back.

My husband and I stayed at the Carriage house for two nights in March, 2005. The website promised high speed internet access. The truth was that they had high speed internet access in SOME Rooms. I do see that they now say on their website "conditions apply". We had a one bedroom apartment. When we mentioned the lack of internet service, "Rudy" (owner or manager at that time) was very rude, saying that "you can't expect us to have internet service in ALL the rooms"!! We had a heated discussion and after two hours of him in our room trying to hook something up, we had internet service as promised. It does cost $10.00 per night. Someone else had a key to our room (a drunk resident of the motel) and entered our room at 9 p.m. without knocking. He looked confused and said he was looking for his wallet. We told the front desk what happened and they seemed to not care, but did offer a half hearted apology. The beds are terrible -- very cheap. The couch had a bad body odor smell. We pointed that out to the front desk -- and the maid came by and sprayed Febreeze on it!! We would never stay here again -- it ruined our time in Deerfield Beach.

We planned to stay at the Carriage House in Jan. Unfortunately, my mother-in-law passed away, which necessitated going to her funeral instead. The Carriage House has an unyielding refund policy. Just a word of warning, don't expect a refund of your substantial deposit under even such sad circumstances. We were very surprised and dismayed that they would not work with us, especially since we suspect that they were able to re-rent our sought-after efficiency unit.

I understand that the motel has three types of rooms: regular motel rooms, efficiencies, one bedrooms and two bedrooms. The later three come equiped with kitchens and have all tile covering the floors. My fiancé and I stayed in one of the motel style rooms, while visiting my grandfather over the Martin Luther King weekend, which had no kitchen (just a refrigerator) and carpeting rather than tile in all but the bathroom area. This review pertains to the motel style room as well as the general property, service and location.

The building is white, two levels with columns and surrounds the pool and shuffle board courts on three sides. The pool and area around it looked clean, but it was too cold for us to swim. The doors from the rooms open onto the pool area. The location is excellent, requiring only a short two block walk to the beach. The only better situated hotel was the Howard Johnson, which is directly on the beach and which advertised rates of approximately double what we paid; they also charge for parking, whereas ours was free. A walk along the beach takes you to a nice area with many restaurants, pubs and stores. The beach area is well maintained and clean; we walked back to the motel barefoot without a problem.

As for the room itself, almost everything was clean and well maintained, but the room does reflect the age of the property. The control on the shower was loose and didn’t adjust the temperature very well and the drain looked a little rusty. There was a small mysterious stain the blanket and a larger reddish strain on the coverlet that bothered my fiancé, but the room was otherwise clean. The decor and furniture were old, reminding me of my grandfather’s house, and could use updating. Service was polite and courteous; since we had gotten in very late our first night because of a flight delay, the manager had no problem allowing us to check-out an hour later. There were some annoying omissions from the room amenities that reflect that this is a property more designed for travelers on a budget and long-terms guests. There were no facial tissues or shampoo supplied and the safe in the closet required 50 cents every time it was locked.

Overall it was a good value for the money we spent.

We stayed here based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and were extremely pleased. While not on the beach it is very close and is easy to find. The motel operators try very hard to please and have great attitudes. We stayed in an efficency which was quite spacious and functionally furnished. This is not a luxury hotel and its two diamond rating from AAA is appropriate but for the price it repesents true value. The grounds are extremely well kept and include a pool and shuffleboard courts.
It is loctated on A1A which is a busy road and you can hear a lot of traffic when the room windows are open. The bed in our room was close to the door with the kitchen in the back. It would be nice if it was the other way around. Guests needing a quieter stay should consider a one bedroom apartment. The rooms are not carpetted(a good idea so close to the beach) so bring slippers. Based on our two day stay there is no doubt we will return.
