“Extra helpful staff”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Can't review the rooms because I messed up my reservation(wrong date). But it was full up & looked really clean & updated from the outside. Location was very close to everything. We are so grateful to Larry for calling around to find us a room. If the staff goes to that trouble for someone not even staying there they must really be good for the guests!

My best friend and I went down on Oct 2 just for a day and night to celebrate our birthdays and had a wonderful time. Our room was updated and sparkling clean, but the hotel still had that 50's mom and pop feeling that we both loved. The staff was especially nice, and let us check in a little earlier than the normal 2 pm check in time. We enjoyed the view from our private balcony and even took advantage of sitting on the porch overlooking the ocean in rocking chairs on a different level. We have stayed at the beach house several times before and never have been disappointed in our stay. Also I noticed they were cleaning the carpets in several units on our floor so that tells me the owners take a special interest in keeping a clean motel. The location was great, in walking distance of everything we wanted to see. We will definely return to the Beach House and recommend it to our friends and family.

Room Tip: I would recommend rooms on the 3rd level, better view of the ocean, the 2nd level also have a clear...

We stayed for 5 nights in mid September. The view of the ocean from our deck was amazing. We had a 2 room suite. The rooms were clean, but there was a odd odor in one of them. It was in walking distance of many good restaurants & the boardwalk which made it great! According to the brochure in our room, if you stay five or more nights the sheets get changed on the third night . Ours weren't.

My husband and I have been coming to Carolina Beach to stay at the Carolina Beach Inn and Suites for 6 years or so. We love the beach, the view from "our" room's balcony (207), and the opportunity to cook in the room. We make our breakfast there every day and enjoy eating and having our coffee with the rising sun over the ocean right outside our door.

We don't expect stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and marble bathrooms. All the kitchen appliances are clean and work properly even if they aren't state of the art. Our room had a brand new microwave in it this year. There is everything you need to make and eat basic meals. This motel is affordable for us and offers us a wonderful, relaxing vacation.

Why do we come to the beach? To see and experience the beach! All we need is a comfortable clean room and that's just what we get here. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you need an ironing board and iron you just have to ask, they will bring one to your room!

We have never seen any sign of undesirable people anywhere around the hotel, the beach or any of the spots we go to in town. In fact, we have a traditional trip to the beach every night around 10 pm to sit and watch the waves, stars and moon. No one has ever approached us or bothered us in any way.

In short WE LOVE THIS PLACE, and YOU WILL TOO!

Room Tip: Upper floor, facing ocean, private balcony is wonderful!

Stayed this summer with the family. Great family place, quiet and not over crowed. The staff was great and everyone was really friendly. Rooms and grounds were very clean and tidy. Grandkids loved the pool and the aquarium at Fort Fisher. We also enjoyed the private balcony each morning watching the sunrise over the ocean. We will be back again on our next visit to Carolina Beach.

We have been coming to Carolina Beach since the 1980's and we have stayed here most every time (formerly Shipwreck Lodge). Our most recent visit was this week for two nights. The efficiency was spacious and well cared for, The ocean views from the private balcony was great (from sunrise to full moon). The price was very reasonable. We like Carolina Beach because of of the laid back do nothing but relax and eat feel. A great place for couples.

Room Tip: We prefer the long building facing the ocean on the top floor.

I really don't understand the high rating of this motel - stayed for 3 nights since fewer nights were not offered. We had stayed in Wrightsville Beach, just a few miles up the road, but the feel of the town is completely different. While the beach is beautiful, well groomed, natural dunes with sea oats in most places, the town just feels distressed. There is a gang presence on the street side with signs in bar windows that say "No club colors", old motels in places that have been converted into multiple resident facilities, signs of mold and water damage everywhere. In summary, here are the pros and cons in my view:
cons:
•The "private" balconies are not private - timber frame construction dividers with airspace over and under allows smokers to pollute everyone's air - conversations and children playing feel like they are in the same room - defeats the purpose of the oceanfront accommodations.
•The suites are small, dated and patched up, painted over.
•The rooms are "surface clean" but carpets are thick with ground-in dirt.
•A small parking lot with a few excellent covered spaces but the rest of the spots are tiny and the overflow lot is across the street. I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving my car there.
The pros:
•New shower surround and bathroom fixtures with new linoleum flooring - felt clean and sanitized.
•One of the most beautiful, well maintained beaches on the East Coast that I have been to.
•The suites have almost everything you would need but bring a hair dryer and iron if you need them.
•A Mom & Pop motel - very friendly and responsive.
•New looking linens, dish cloths, etc.
•Walking distance to the "Boardwalk".

As the title suggests, we won't be going back but, if the smoking and noise from neighbors doesn't bother you, this might be a good choice for you.

Room Tip: The upper floors give the best ocean view and the most "potential for quiet", remember you...
