“Would not recommend”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We stayed here from September 22th to the 24th. The check was fine but the room smelled of mildew. We wanted to get room service but the menu wasn’t in the guest welcome book. Called the front desk to request one, and waited, and waited, and waited. I finally had to call the restaurant and order our food without a menu, which should have been a sign to me because the food was absently horrible. The staff was having a party or a meeting or something in the room across from ours, they had the burglary lock flipped on the door and for several hours we had to hear the door banging from them going in and out constantly. That coupled with the guy in the room next to ours yelling at someone for an hour, and the music from the courtyard blaring until 10pm not to mention room service giving us only hand towels, (no wash cloths) the second day. All of this made for a pretty crappy stay.

“Not The Place to Stay for Bike Week!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

We stayed here from 14-16 Sep for bike week, had a group of approx 16 people at est $200 a night and trailered our motorcycles down.
Parking was critical for us since we had the trailers, so we called SEVERAL times to confirm that they indeed could accommodate motorcycle trailers. The staff positively confirmed EVERY time, to include the night before arrival, that they had "plenty" of room for parking/trailers.
We arrived around 11am and was greeted with short answers from the front desk staff, couldn't even get a question all the way out of our mouths. We were then directed to security for parking and were told their "overflow" parking was full and we had to find parking elsewhere, perhaps along the street or across the street at the grocery store! "Don’t worry about the cops, they usually don't give tickets"...what? The "overflow" parking accommodated about 5 trailers BTW!
I would not recommend this hotel for large parties or for bike week unless you ride your bike. There is NO; I repeat, NO room for trailers....Do not let them tell you otherwise....
Bike Week was awesome otherwise but cops were out in force and saw people pulled over frequently!

“Time has taken its toll here”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Was rather disappointed in what The Carousel has become. Once a grand hotel is equal to one of the motels on Route 50. The lobby, rooms and even the restaurant are outdated. The once vibriant Carousel Club (Night Club) is no longer there. Replaced by a banquet room. The atrium is laughable - trying to put too much in the space. Recently, they had a fire in one of the elevators. Gosh, just the place I want to stay....

A great place to stay with numerous things to do right on the compound. The indoor pool and large and clean. The outdoor pool is nice with a bar and restaurant close by to service all your needs. The music played during the day reminds you of the islands.

“Very clean and lots to do”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Ntoo far from all the attractions, but quieter than being on the boardwalk, and cleaner too! Clean, has indoor skating rink and most important, a nice pool on the ocean side rather than the street side.
