“A wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

We spent two nights at this motel and found it to be clean, comfortable and centrally located.
It is within walking distance of the beach, shops, and a good breakfast restaurant. The bed was very comfortable with high quality sheets. Having the owners live on the premises is a plus. We would highly recommend this motel.

Had a wonderful stay... very clean and quaint. Every thing that you needed. Actually met the owner on the way out; very sweet and personable! Would definitely stay again!

We spent the night in a small neat hotel. Everything was very clean and the owners were on sight to make sure we had everything we needed. I would recommend it to anyone.

Wonderful, friendly owners who know all the best things to do down there. Fantastic decor - colorful and fun. I've been there before and next trip to NC I will stay there again. So comfortable and clean.

Room Tip: Just ask Darrel or Patricia (owners), tell them what you need and you will not be disappointed.

Let me just say this was the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in, ever. I could have eaten off the floors if I wanted to and felt great to know I didn't have to worry about my kids picking up anything off the floor. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are definately cute and roomy, the bathrooms as my husband who is 6' 3" are smaller than normal but considering the fact the building was built in the 1970's when people were smaller and no pool but we didn't mind. But I would definately stay there again and again, it is probably the best value in Atlantic Beach and with the short walk to the beach and kid friendly atmosphere it was a stay to remember. Thanks guys the hotel is awesome!!:)

Room Tip: They ask who is in your party on the phone and that is so that they can pick a perfect one for your...

I wish there were more places like the Carribe Inn to stay. Clean, affordable, friendly, and locally owned. Small business owners doing a great job

My wife & I were in town for events at Ft. Macon (Civil War Fort just down the road) and we were greatly comforted by the fine accommodations at The Carribe Inn.

You cannot miss it from the road...The decor is bright & cheerful, with bold colors and a delightful 'island' feel.
(You KNOW you are at The Beach ! )

We had a friendly, warm welcome from the owner, Trish Lawrence (who seemed like an old friend within 2 minutes of meeting her....proof of reincarnation, or is Trish just that nice...?? )

Our room was emmaculate, and the bed was juuuusssst right. ( I can feel myself nodding off at the memory) My wife-- a former Health Inspector, and VERY descriminating--was not only pleased, but absolutely CHARMED with The Carribe Inn! As for myself; the room was bright, cheerful, and comfortable with good cable tv and a very useful micowave & fridge ( perfect for a late-night re-heated seafood and cold beer snack!...but shhh!...don`t tell my wife, she`s asleep!) The shower has abundant hot water and steady pressure ( two things much treasured and at times hard to come by on the coast).
The cost of all this charm & comfort was very reasonable and well worth anyone`s money.

The Bottom Line:
In My Opinion, If someone stays at The Carribe Inn and does not enjoy it and find it a good value, then they high-probability are trying not to be pleased and should have just stayed home.

Room Tip: Go for the King-Size bed !
