It was ok

The room was ok for the price that I paid. I didn't like the little brown stains on my wall that I had to wipe off. That made me feel a little uncomfortable. Made me feel like housekeeping didn't complete their job, however the view was amazing and I loved the pool and the fact you could ice skate right on the first floor!!!!

Great mini getaway!

We decided last minute to take the kids overnight at the beach. Driving through OC as well as checking online regularly we came across this hotel. They had one ocean front room left so we decided to book it! We couldn't have been happier. The location was perfect, staff was very friendly, the pool and access to the beach were just what we were looking for. We were so pleased with our one night stay we decided to book another night. We will be booking our family vacation there again next year!

Carousel

Had a great stay! Had beach front balcony view and the view was amazeing! Right off beach. They had a outdoor big pool and kids pool. An indoor pool very big with hot tub and a sauna. An ice skating rink that had performance every night and they were very good. Negatives were the time the pool ect opened at which was ten lil late for me. Also its not near boardwalk or where i was at most nights the clubs had few blocks to travel to get to around 50 th street. The price was high but overall i had an amazeing time and stay and didnt want to leave.

Carousel experience

We got there on time. They gave a room number in the second floor right in front of the bar. The noise were unbelievable . I booked and paid for a beach front room. We got around 3:30pm. The floor of room was pretty disgusting. There were water all over the floor from a broken refrigerator. My daughter slipped on the floor right away plus the noise in the bar . It sounded like a karaoke bar that is very awful. I went back to the front desk to complain and they gave us a room which no longer a beach front. I have to argue with them in order for me to get a decent room which is beachfront . Around 4.30pm they finally gave me a room in the forth floor that is presentable. Although there were hairs in the bathroom al least I don't have to listen to the noise in the bar with my small kids with wet floor and broken refrigerator.

Enjoyable stay

We chose this hotel due to its location and amenities. It was great to be able to use the indoor pool while it was still chilly on the beach in the morning. My daughter absolutely loved the ice skating show! Their was live entertainment each day. If the restaurant had not been closed for lunch, we would not have left site at all during our stay.

Great Hotel at a reasonable rate!

We had a great time at this hotel! Very nice landscaping by the beach including a pool,a bar and really neat bonfire tables for the cool evenings. Indoor skating was fun. Our ocean front room was spacious and had balcony big enough for four of us to sit outside and enjoy the great view! Ocean city board walk is several blocks away so it wasn't hectic and buzzing with people constantly.
