“Best at Carolina Beach”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We've been coming to Carolina Beach for 3 years now and have stayed in numerous hotels and this is by far the BEST. Great location and the owners are VERY attentive and friendly. They are pet friendly as well. The queen suite is very large and clean. If you are looking for a great place to stay then rest assured this is a diamond.

Room Tip: The Queen Suite (room #3) is like a small apartment.

My husband and I usually stay in Wilmington, but thought for this weekend we would actually stay at Carolina Beach. We booked our weekend stay at the Carolina Beach Inn. The outside appearance is very cute and does look like an inn. When we were first introduced to our room, by the innkeeper Deb, my first impression was a little disappointed for I could stay in a much nicer hotel for less price. However, as she shared the history, my view changed. I realized that the place has history, it is old, and the price is good for a place to stay at the beach during peak season. The rooms are very clean, the beds are incredibly comfortable, each room has a closet, bathroom, bed, nightstands mini fridge, microwave, and there is a Keurig on the hall. It is a basic room. We also enjoyed rocking in the rocking chairs in the morning, while enjoying our coffee. Another perk is that you can walk anywhere you would like to go and enjoy a true beach experience.

While visiting family in NC we decided to make a short weekend trip to the Carolina Beach area. We searched for hotels and all of the decent ones were sold out. Tripadvisor lead us to "Inns" which is where we found Carolina Beach Inn. It was very easy to book on their website.
We thought the price might be too good to be true so we were pleasantly surprised when we pulled up in front of the inn. We were early so called Debi, the Innkeeper to see if we could park prior to check in. She said it was fine and that our room was almost ready and that she would call us when the room was ready. We had some beach time and sure enough she called us and we got in our room early. We kinow that it is not always possible but Debi was so nice to call and let us take advantage of this. Our suite was very clean and allowed the four of us plenty of room. We were one and a half blocks back from the beach and boardwalk area and within walking distance to many of the area restaurants. We left something behind and Debi called us shortly afer our depature to let us know and agreed to ship the item to us. Debi is very friendly and attentive. A good Innkeeper along with clean accomodations makes for a great stay. Thank you Debi! I would recommend this cozy little place for a stay in Carolina Beach.

Debi (the inkeeper) is wonderful. She was very helpful with suggestions on local eateries & made a special trip back to the property when we left one of our belongings there after we checked out. The room was clean & the smoke free room was completely odorless - other rental properties that claim they have smokefree rooms smell like ashtrays and armpits - yuck! The location was great - right off of Fort Fisher Blvd and a very short walk from the nightly carnival rides & beach access is maybe a 5 min walk. Despite the busy location the room was very quiet - pleasantly surprised! I would stay there again :-)

Carolina Beach Inn was a great place to stay. The Inn was very quiet and peaceful. The innkeeper was very friendly and recommended places to go for fun and relaxation. Rooms are on the smaller side, but for a short weekend trip, it was perfect.

Room Tip: Most rooms are small. There are some "suites" available that offer kitchen and dining.
