Beachside Inn
Ranked #15 of 19 Hotels in Carolina Beach
Reviewed July 6, 2004

We decided to stay at the Beachside Inn because we booked last minute, and we read all the great reviews. Unfortunately, we weren't as happy as most. While not dirty, the room certainly wasn't as clean as we hoped. The entire place seemed pretty run down to me. For example, most of the towels were stained and had holes! I can't give a good recommendation to any place that isn't willing to replace bath towels when they wear out. And that's just one point of many.

On the good side, beach access is good.

All in all, if we had seen the Inn prior to our trip, we would have stayed elsewhere. We won't be back in the future.

When my son had a 3 day pass from Bragg, he wanted to see the ocean. We selected Carolina Beach and the Beachside Inn based on reviews and were not disappointed. Check out their website and review the rates etc.. This is a family owned business managed by very hard working friendly people, who make every effort to see that you have a pleasant stay. If you are looking for a clean affordable place to chill in the Carolina Beach/Kure Beach area, give Sue or Wanda a call.

This is a homey, no frills place with CLEAN rooms and excellent staff. It's not fancy, but the rates are great for staying so near the beach (barely a 2-minute walk). My young daughter and I go there to relax and enjoy the ocean. Plenty to do in a short drive (Acquarium, Water Park, the pier) and also a quiet place to do nothing but look for shells!
We're going back for another 7 day stay this summer and we plan to return again and again! If you want excitement and razzle dazzle, this isn't it. If you want to feel like you're staying in your own beach neighborhood, Beachside Inn is the place.

This by far was the best beach vacation that I have ever been on. The hotel is located across the street from the beach, walking distance to the board walk, and resturantes. It is a family owned and ran business, so you are treated like a king. I strongly recommend this hotel if you are in the carolina/kure beach area.

The room was neat and clean. Atmosphere quiet and family oriented. The owners were lovely people and the flower gardens were gorgeous! Beach was right across the street. Only issue was the window unit air conditioner in our room was pretty loud so my hearing impaired companion had difficulty hearing me over that noise. Had to turn it off when he wanted to watch TV or chat. Other guests at that same time had no problems with their window units so I believe it is an isolated issue. I am planning to return there many more times!

We stayed at Beachside Inn for the first time last year and loved it. It is inexpensive but very neat and clean and the owner's are very personable people. They made our stay a pleasure and the inn is right on Carolina beach. We plan to go back there with the entire family in June and have already reserved 4 rooms for that time.
