Very nice and pleasant staff, great maid service - we got rooms vacuumed, trash emptied, beds made, and fresh towels every day. Short walk along Virginia Legends Park to beach - stage at end offered entertainment in the evenings. Clean small pool suitable for a short post-beach dip. The safe was easy-to-use and handy. The room we stayed in seemed recently renovated and in decent condition - the walls are concrete and the futon was broken but my daughter just slept in it without putting it down - this would be an issue if two needed to sleep on it. They provide some small generic soap bars, no shampoo or other toiletries, so make sure your bring your own. The outlet in the bedroom was funky - had to leave the plug dangling halfway-out for anything to work. Light bulb in fridge was out, reported but not fixed, not the end of the world. Good value for the money if you're not looking for a five-star luxury hotel or ocean front room - there are hotels across the street on Atlantic for about $100 more per night if you want that. Overall a very nice stay, the only constructive criticism I would have: Clean the carpets, (while visibly they look fine, if you walk around the room for 5 minutes in white socks the bottoms will be black, eew - I ended up walking in the room with flip-flops on and had to refrain from doing my morning ritual yoga stretches on the floor because of the carpet), and lastly, please turn on that cool-looking neon carousel sign at night, (I finally asked them if it was broken and the guy said he'd walk upstairs and turn it on but never did). As long as they keep their prices reasonable, I would come back here again, overall very satisfied with the Beach Carousel and the staff.
