“Cozy charm great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

We enjoyed the great breakfasts (Included) out on the porch and a delicious discounted dinner. Bed was very comfortable. Small attractive room was fine. Staff often asked if we needed anything and all were very helpful. Great location for people watching and enjoying the local atmosphere. Close to beach, shops, entertainment. Our 35th anniversary will always be a wonderful memory in part because of CVH.

Room Tip: We chose a standard bed which is fine for us.

We used 2 Groupons to stay for 2 nights, which included breakfast in the Mad Batter (so delicious!), 2 free mimosas or bloody marys, 2 wine tasting tours, 1 microbrewery tour and 2 trolley tours. We had a wonderful 30th anniversary celebration! Room 13 was beautifully decorated, although the mattress was sagging and uncomfortable. Perfect central location, 1/2 block from beach and Washington St. mall. We were surprised to find a bottle of wine in the room, compliments of the hotel. It was a nice anniversary surprise.

Room Tip: 3rd floor was quiet but tough to climb all those steps

We only stayed one night, but it was great! The room was clean bright and comfortable. We had a great dinner and a wonderful breakfast at the Mad Batter downstairs. The bar had live entertainment. And it all was centrally located 1/2 block from the beach. Would go back any time

Although we thought it overpriced, we enjoyed our stay very much. Our room was very comfortable & cozy with decor that was well arranged. Room #13 had a peek-a-boo view of the ocean, which is just a half block away. In the other direction, you are only a block from excellent shopping with restaurants in both directions. OR you can just eat on site at the Mad Batter restaurant which was always above average! No on site parking though. You will have to walk 7 minutes for the free parking which the hotel provides. Wasn't a big deal BUT you should be aware of this minor inconvenience. All in all, we would be happy to stay at the Carroll Villa again....

Room Tip: Room #13 is a corner room and has a peek a boo view of the ocean!

We are glad you found your room comfortable and cozy and that you appreciated being only a half block to the ocean and a half block to the shops. I am afraid that nothing will ever change the parking situation. We hope that you will stay with us again very soon. Jill, Reservation Clerk

It's more of a hotel like atmosphere than a B&B. You do get breakfast but it's at their restaurant which is very well liked so rather busy. But they do a wonderful job of keeping the tables moving. Never waited very long. The Room was nice (room 6). LOVE the size of a king bed! It's what I look for, for a vacation, but the bed was really hard and the pillows were not comfortable at all. My boyfriend didn't have a problem sleeping on the bed, though he does agree with me on the pillows. Overall cute and helpful people. Clean. They give you beach towels! Bonus! Parking is not really fun, but you CANNOT beat their location! Mostly you're paying for location and the restaurant.

Room Tip: All pictures are room 6!

The Carroll Villa has a very homey feel for us, with a very helpful and gracious staff, we've enjoyed every stay. Breakfast/lunch vouchers for the Mad Batter add value (and the food is delicious). Room configurations and sizes vary (some are very cozy!), but all have places and spaces for stowing your clothes and travel accessories, TV and WiFi are good, the location is terrific, nights are quiet for sleeping. We will be back.

Great location. Room was okay--nothing really special about the property. I thought the room cost was overpriced for the cost. Mad Batter has excellent food and staff was great!! They give a $30 voucher per couple for the Mad Batter each day of your stay which is about right for the cost of the breakfast, but you will have to pay a cash tip.
