Friend's 1st time to the beach

I loved the location....off the beaten path....We asked for ocean front and the staff was extremely helpful. The hotel is a bit dated. Only one elevator for the 4 floors of ocean front for hotel type rooms. Our room did not receive housekeeping services which was a bummer. The guy at the front desk said this wasn't normal and we must have left the Do Not Disturb sign out. Nope not true....

Great Great for kids!!

We arrived to find an ernomous establishment with valets, carousels, indoor ice skating, cotton candy and more. We chose the hotel for location and outdoor pool mostly. Out standard room was actually quite large and easily fit a cot. Our view ended up to be horrible though as we were on the same level as some roof that housed pigeons galore. Got free beach chairs though! One complaint was that pool didn't open until 10 am and was small and crowded with maybe 10 lounge chairs total. Overall our family enjoyed our short stay.

Punished for renting through Third Party

I have stayed at The Carousel before and had a great experience and expected the same this time. However, because their own website indicated they were fully booked for the days I wanted to visit, I chose to book through a third party. When I arrived I was told my room was right on the Atrium ( a very undesirable spot). I asked for a change in the room but the desk clerk told me I couldn't change rooms because I had booked through a third party. I will think twice before going there again.

MY BAD ROMANTIC GETAWAY

I had a bad experience at this hotel. At first they told me they couldn't accomodate me with a king sized bed and gave me a double bed in the room in which the mattresses were as hard as a brick and the room was shabby looking and for the amount of money that i spent i was not going for it. I in turn called the desk and they said they could give me another room with a king bed in it i accepted it and it was an even worst experience because the hotel was already crowded with many children and it was in back of the ice skating rink and in front of the patio bar and restaurant which had singers performing all weekend so with all that noise who could have a relaxing time? I previously stayed at this hotel in a condo and me and my family enjoyed it but this time was just the pits as well as the manager who did not have the courtesy to call me back.

Spring Break Vacation

Not impressed. Room was dirty, uncomfortable bed, loose spicket in the bathtub, and the AC unit blew black dirt all over the room and beds. Only the Condos have full kitchens.

Perfect, except for the thin walls!

Great location, good amenities, clean and inexpensive. We got a great deal on a 2 bedroom condo! Only problem was the walls are so thin you can overhear every conversation in the corridor and even people walking/running outside. Good luck getting an uninterrupted nights sleep. Its a pity coz the rooms the beds and the whole place was perfectly comfortable and worth the price. I'd probably still go back and hope for a less noisy neighbor.

Very clean, well kept. Friendly staff.

The rooms were clean and comfortable. The kids loved the ice skating and indoor pool. The rest of the hotel was also clean and well maintained. Plenty to do inside if you can't go out.

Very dissapointed

First of all the room I booked was supposed to have an ocean view all we saw was the roof and other hotel rooms (major disappointment!)Things that didn't work: the alarm clock,an electrocal outlet, a lamp and the iron. We had to call the front desk twice and waited an hour for the iron. This made us late for an engagement(big bummer). We had to go back down to the front desk twice to get our cards programmed to open our door.The water pressure in the shower was weak.The sink's water went from hot to cold. no warm or luke warm. On sunday morning we woke up at 10:50 because the alarm clock didn't work, so we informed the front desk and was told if we weren't out the room by 11:30 we would be charged an additional 139.99. We planned along time for this trip and because of the hotel, our getaway was a disaster!Also housekeeping made our bed with potato chips and underwear still on the bed(gross)
