Carolina Resort Motel
Ranked #31 of 44 Hotels in Old Orchard Beach
Reviewed 22 July 2008

Short and sweet my husband broke his foot when a large heavy piece of wood fell off the wall. It landed on his toes. We alerted the clerk at the front desk. She told us the insurance co would be in touch with us. She refused to tell us their name. It was 4th of July weekend. It was completely ruined for us. The room didn't even have a/c. And honestly I don't think anyone has done maintenance on that building in 30 years. Total nightmare.

The motel was a mess! The rooms were too small and so small that my uncle accidentally hit his head off the fan and broke it! Theroom was so damp that my cousin thought the beds were ''water beds''. There was no service whatsoever when we went, and in the end, all we thought of it as was the Ancient Aztec Mental Institute!

My mother and I have been coming to this hotel every year for the last 20 years. As each year passes the place gets more run down. There's no way I wanted to come back again this year but my Mom is 87 and coming here has become a tradition with her.

The first sight that greeted us was the pool....empty except for green sludge in the bottom....yuck!

Then the room....
Bad stains on the carpet, weird odor, curtains that won't close, bureau drawers that are broken, metal thresh-hold strip between carpet and linoleum that kept popping up to trip over and the list goes on. Just a look at the pictures should warn any prospective clients to steer cleer of this one!

The only thing this hotel has going for it is that it's right on the beach.

We won't come back next year!

The whole room was very 70's dated, down to the dirty gold shag carpet & the gold drapes that would not close all the way. I used a hair clip to keep the drapes shut. The wallpaper was peeling, the bedspreads were stained and the beds were hard as a rock. I slept in a chair that night. If you found a place in the lot to park your car, you took the chance of being blocked in by another person also looking for a space, which happened to me. One night was all I could take.
