Very cute hotel,We loved this location and the room was very large. We loved how close it was to the boardwalk and beach. It is perfect for kids,because of the size and they come with microwaves and refrigerator. Our main complaint was not enough food put out for the guests in the morning. It could have had more variety and amount of food. The first day of our stay we went to the breakfast a little later and they were out of many of the options. We really liked this hotel and would stay again.

If you're going to the boardwalk this is an excellent location with a better than Santa Cruz Boardwalk style average hotel. The rooms walls were a little thin and we could hear the neighbors, but other than that it was a good stay.

Carousel Beach Inn was great for location and food. The beach, Wharf, & boardwalk were great! Discovered great eats and a relaxing atmosphere. We would like to visit again sometime as a family. Can’t wait!

The pictures look nicer than reality, but if you’re not too particular - it’s really the greatest location! 50 steps to the boardwalk. Continental breakfast served every day. No carpet in the first floor rooms, so bring some socks!

Carousel Beach Inn was updated in a crisp, modern way with tile floors that look like wood and large, colorful photographs. It had a refrigerator and microwave and a nice table to sit at. There was also a patio! The ceilings are very high giving it an airy quality. The price and location were excellent. My only complaint was the pillows were flat and bed was pretty good. The sheets and towels were of good quality and everything clean. They have bagels, scones, muffins, fresh cut fruit, coffee and juice for breakfast. And the staff is very nice and helpful! I was very pleased with my stay and even tried to book a second night, but it being spring break they were full!
