Courtyard by Marriott Carolina Beach
Ranked #4 of 19 Hotels in Carolina Beach
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Last month I needed to be in Wilmington for a business meeting and I checked the Marriott properties. The Courtyand by Marriott Carolina Beach was only 15 minutes from my destination and it was a great value. Every room has an ocean front view with a balcony. The rooms were clean comfortable and quiet. The reception desk staff were friendly and helped me map my schedule for my meeting and activities for the next day. Wifi is complementary. We literally left the room, went downstairs and we were seconds from a beautiful walk along the ocean. For the price, I would highly recommend the hotel if you are ever in the Wilmington area.

Room Tip: Higher floors for better views

I'm a big Marriott fan. Chelsea checked us in and was helpful. Rooms are updated, spacious, very comfortable and face right on to the ocean. The balconies aren't huge but they are good enough. Our king room had a small fridge that was large enough to hold lots of waters, snacks, etc. You are smack in the middle of downtown but there is ample free parking. The beach is right out front and you can walk for miles. (You can rent two chairs and an umbrella for $30 a day. We brought our own). The outdoor pool, however, was a huge disappointment. The pool is a nice size but it was filthy: leaves and sand coated the bottom. Same thing the next day. (Dirt was in the same places so I don't even think they cleaned it). One of the website photos shows nice lounge chairs and umbrellas. There are no umbrellas and the pads on the (cheap plastic) lounge chairs are very worn and dirty. I get the fact that sandy kids are in and out of the pool. I wasn't expecting resort quality cabanas from a Courtyard. Nevertheless, they should skim the pool floor a few times a day (like any other beach hotel) and take the fancy pool photo off their website. Overall, the hotel is nice and the location is good. Just don't put a swim in the pool on your list of things to do.

This hotel is fantastic as every room is ocean front. The rooms are clean and were renovated fairly recently. It's not your typical small beach hotel that has been ridden hard and put up wet. The food is good too. My daughter ordered a French dip art the bar and ate the whole thing. She NEVER does that. You can walk to the quite a few great restaurants, the board walk, lake, and you can rent bikes close by. If you're over 21 - you have to check out the local color at The Fat Pelican Bar. Best hotel for the value in our opinion.

The first thing that struck me was that the bed faced the sliding glass door to the balcony so we would wake up looking at the ocean! We've been to other places overlooking the water and don't understand why someone else didn't think of this. It was a wonderful way to wake up! The only real issue we had was that housekeeping did not completely replace the towels that they took. We started with 3 bath towels, a bath mat, 3 hand towels and 3 wash clothes. After housekeeping came the first day, we had 2 bath towels, no bath mat, 2 hand towels and 2 wash clothes. The next day we left a note asking for additional towels and they took care of our request. The closeness and access to the beach was fantastic! The ability to reserve beach chairs and an umbrella for a reasonable fee was wonderful, too! It was great to go out in the morning and have your spot at the beach all ready for you! Everyone was extremely friendly! We would definitely stay here again!

We enjoyed the breakfast buffet at The Bistro Restaurant at the Marriott Carolina Beach recently. It is one of the best breakfast buffets I have ever had. It's not a typical buffet - you can taste that the food is prepared with love.

A Marriott on the Ocean! Who could ask for more? I love this hotel - everything you need is right here and next to the boardwalk! We watched fireworks being launched on the beach right in front of the hotel from our 8th floor balcony - Beautiful! We had two rooms, one regular and one suite - both are spacious. We will be returning to this hotel!

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean, North corner suites face the boardwalk. (You can see how long the line is...

We've stayed here a number of times and are always satisfied. This time we had the weather on our side as well. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel. Staff is helpful and professional. Everything is clean and well looked-after. We especially love that you're guaranteed a room facing the water. Only negative on this trip was the carnival next door putting out all too much noise late into the night. Not the hotel's fault, of course.
