“Beachfront Hotels In NC Are Few . . .”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

But the Courtyard by Marriott in Carolina Beach is a great alternative for those who haven't scored a weekly rental over the summer or can only manage a couple of day getaway. The outdoor pool is nice and indoor pool is a great for families with small children (especially when the weather is cool or rainy) Access to the beach is easy and I highly recommend a short walk to Havannah's for dinner.

Room Tip: If you prefer a hotel on a high floor have patience for the two small, heavily travelled elevators e...

I was very surprised by this hotel. We generally stick to Marriott properties when traveling due to consistency of the level of hotel. When we checked in I was shocked at how dirty the carpeting was right away as this hotel was apparently fairly newly renovated. The sheets on one of the beds was dirty, there were only 3 towels in a room that was able to accommodate 4, one of the lamps did not have a light bulb and the chair in the room was filthy. My daughter had to use tissues to clean a ridiculous amount of hair from the bathroom floor before she would use the toilet. The room was not nearly worth the money and left a bad taste in our mouths regarding Marriott properties in general. Also, in returning to the hotel in the evening there was no where to park in the designated lot so I was told by the front desk to park in a gravel lot clearly marked for another property. I was worried my car would be towed but guess what it was full too. I had to wait in the car >15 mins waiting for someone to leave.

All rooms face the ocean so you always get a room with a view. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and the location is prime.

The hotel was nice and clean but the area should come with a warning label. This area is strictly for young party types that don't want to sleep or be safe. Very expensive and not worth the money. Service was not great.

This is, at best, just an average hotel with expensive prices for the minimal basics of a hotel. I'm a frequent Marriott patron but I was disappointed in this property. It IS located on the beach but I would suggest looking at available rentals with much more value for the location.

Room Tip: Look at available beachfront rental properties. The value would be MUCH better.

My husband and I spent last night here using Marriott Rewards points. He had a meeting in Wilmington, and we thought it would make a nice little place to stay overnight.
We were delightfully surprised when we arrived. It was not too large and was right on the beach in a quaint little seaside village. We were given a standard king room on the 9th floor. All of the rooms are ocean front ( above the first floor). Our bed faced the balcony with expansive ocean views. There was also a sofa and arm chair seating area near the windows which faced a flat screen tv sitting on a chest of drawers that housed a mini fridge. there was also a desk with a nice office arm chair near the windows. The bathroom was a good size and had a nice tall sink. The mattress was comfortable and a bit firm.
We enjoyed cocktails in the lounge on the 1st floor, which also had a little restaurant overlooking the beach. the bartender recommended a restaurant for dinner, which just happened to be across the street so we could easily walk to it. It was called The Deck House. It used to be a church. We walked over and had a lovely dinner there. I highly recommend the grilled shrimp ( on skewers) . It tasted like it had been barbecued to perfection.
The hotel is on Carolina Beach, and just a short drive to Fort Fisher and the aquarium. In addition to an indoor pool and spa, there was a good sized outdoor pool that is right on the beach and excellent for doing laps.
We will definitely go back. It is a perfect place to stay for a short weekend trip.

Room Tip: JUst request a high floor for maximum views.
