"good place to stay"
it was great, people are great, will be back as alwaysGenuine Expedia guest review
Need to clean sleeper sofa matress was stained and nasty. Great to have something offered to eat but was not enough for all that waited to eat. Had to keep asking for things that were empty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fair to good"
Hotel was clean and comfortable. Service was very good. In my opinion the manager is a jerk. He is arrogant and egotistical and too demanding of staff. One day while passing his office the door was wide open and he was "chewing out" a staff member. The conversation could be heard outside his office. To me this is not signs of a good manager. If he needs […] to have a "talk" with an employee he should at least close the door. I think he needs a course in management! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"good location-- Great staff"
I reserved 2 rooms (adjoining) thru Hotels.com and was disappointed that my reservation wasn't noted that I had requested adjioning rooms, however Microtel was able to move other guests around to meet my request. The staff at Microtel are very pleasant and told us about a few great places to visit while in the area. Thanks for a GREAT stay at the b […] each!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our first time staying in Carolina Beach and we had a great time. Very glad we picked this hotel to stay in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we come back next time from thereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
After reading the reviews, I thought I was going to a total dump. However, everything was great. Now, it is a Microtel and not an Adam's Mark so you have to temper your expectations but I was pleasantly surprised and would absolutely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mildly Disappointed...But Beats Many Area Motels!!"
I have now stayed in 4 Microtel locations and, sad to say, this Carolina Beach location was at the bottom of the chain's barrell. Firstly, let me compliment the staff on working hard to be polite, pleasing, asking if they can be of assistance, and keeping a clean, comfortable room for guests. Also, a HUGE Thumbs Up to the maid service...not one grain […] of sand in carpet at the beach...a rarity in the finest of motels!! Aside from this, I found this motel lacking in the following: Bathroom sink/mirror area was too small, the room was a bit dark, small, and not as plush as most Microtels. The pool area was a disaster...especially as this was a coastal location...you are filling your location nightly, so, for Heaven's Sakes, put some money in pool furniture (which was old and sparse) and umbrellas!! Also, since this was a totally non-smoking motel, outside benches, seating should have been provided for smokers...or anyone wishing to sit in the ocean breeze at night. Overall, I'd give this location a 2 1/2--3 star rating...and leaning to the three is tough. I would stay again if I were a "beach and surf worshiper," but I shall be searching for another motel in the area at a like price that is a bit more pristine. However, this was a clean bed and room for the night if that is all you are in the market for and the mini-fridge in the room was a plus...a small microwave would have been nice too. Thanks for the friendliness and cleanliness...but the rest lacks, sadly!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good deal for the money"
I've paid more for worse. Overall it was ok. You get what you pay for.Genuine Expedia guest review
"excellent budget motel"
the Carolina Beach Microtel is an excellent value-priced place to stay in Carolina Beach. The staff, especially Holly and Tracy are great ambassadors for the site. The rooms are cheery and clean. The pool is great, clean and quiet. Breakfast is very limited. There is everything you need in the area to really enjoy yourself.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a very reasonably priced, good quality motel. The motel is just a short, easy drive from beach access and parking. My room was clean, nicely finished out, and everything was in order. Behind the motel is their nicely landscaped pool and a pond- MUCH better than the token concrete pool I expected! The continental breakfast could have been a little […] better with the addition of oatmeal and some fresh fruit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was really disappointed in this stay. I chose this spot because I thought it was close to the beach....not really - NOT walking distance. It was right behind a WINGS store on a main street and very difficult to turn left from. The room WAS clean - so clean that they used sandpaper to clean the toilet seats. The beds were seriously comfortable. The […] room was very small and the TV is mounted in an odd high angle. The breakfast was the barest of minimums - including the space in which to eat. Beware also there were NO HAIR DRYERS in the rooms and although I was promised one by a hostess who "had 24 years of customer service experience" I had to really fight to get one (really?) and THEN they had borrowed it from another guest (REALLY???). AND as we were leaving the automatic sprinklers came on (9 am when all guests are checking out) and wet my husband and our luggage. - Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Upon checking in I noticed that my room was not clean. I found hair in the shower, the carpet had not been vacuumed and the cushion on the window seat had not been cleaned. There were fibers, grass, hairs and crumbs all over it. I mentioned to the very polite staff that it appeared as though someone forgot to finish cleaning my room. When I returned […] the carpet had been cleaned but the rest of the problems still existed. That night I had to ask for a new fitted sheet because there were sizable blood stains on mine. The next day I asked for the window seat to be cleaned, and while someone must have hand picked the crumbs off of it they did not CLEAN it. The hair in the shower was still there as well. I cleaned the A/C vent myself to try to help with the smell, but the effort was probably wasted. The front desk staff were more than pleasant, but I would not stay here again.

Ok, the water pressure was very lacking. Could have gotten more pressure from a rain outside.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staf was very nice. The hotel itself was run down and showing its age. I will not go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly and close to everything, but not clean."
The staff were incredibly nice and polite. We checked in late at night and were greeted with smiles. They warned us that the room keys were finicky. They checked on us by the pool and pre-checked us out because they saw we were in a hurry. Really sweet people. The pool was nice and clean. The breakfast was simple waffles, cereal, and muffins. The location […] of the place was perfect; we walked to everything. The only disappointing thing was the cleanliness of the rooms. There were a few hairs under the sheets stuck to the mattress cover. A few stains on the sheets. Hairs in the corner of the bathroom. The mini fridge was probably from the 70s and barely worked. Not a single channel was appropriate for kids, only pg-13 channels and up. But we were so busy, we were only in our rooms to change and sleep. So I would recommend this place if you didn't mind it being a little lacking in a few areas. I would probably stay again, except bring my own blankets. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great value and close to the beach."
Hotel staff was very friendly and informative. Our stay was very pleasant and relaxing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
good value...the only complaint would be that the AC was very loud, even for a motel. Could walk to beach but it was a long walk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute cheery rooms; very nice staff"
My 2-doublebed room was cheerfully decorated, clean, and had a decent-sized small fridge for personal use. I loved being able to use the microwave in the breakfast room to reheat leftovers since I can never finish restaurant meals. The breakfast wasn't particularly healthy (no fruit or yogurt) but self-made waffles, bagels and cream cheese, and corn […] flakes/raisin bran and juices, coffee and tea were quite sufficient. The staff was very friendly and they keep the coffee thermoses in the breakfast room full all day. The rear rooms facing the pool and small drainage pond are quieter than street-facing rooms, though the hotel is quite set back from the street. It's a 10-min run to the beach and/or the boardwalk/ restaurant area. I was quite happy with the place, and the staff were very nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very nice for the price the employees were nice and helpful. The only thing I would say bad about it was the channel selection on the tv. Four types of HBO but no Comedy Central? All in all it was a fun trip and a good hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Microtel in Carolina Beach is a good buy."
Room was big enough and very clean. Quiet also. Located very close to several restaurants and gift shops. Nice pool and sunning area. Very quiet. In all exactly what you want for a weekend getaway or a one or two night business trip. Room safe is big enough for cameras and small valuables and stuff.Genuine Expedia guest review
Small clean room. The service was good during our stay but my wife left a phone charger in the room and they wanted 25.00 to mail it back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No water views here!"
Breakfast was very lacking in selection unless you prefer cold cereal and bagels, or wait in line to fix a waffle. I love Carolina Beach, but this hotel not so much.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed for three nights and tried to book a fourth but it was sold out when tried to stay another day. Great location near the beach only a few minute walk we will stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the money"
A nice place to start for the money. The rooms are made small by the presence of two queen size beds. Other than that a pleasant weekend stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Carolina Beach, a great beach community"
The staff was very friendly, but the cleanliness of parking lot it was slack.The Microtel is In a decent location, albeit it is not on the beach, but the price per room was very competitive with surrounding hotels. I like the laid back atmosphere of Carolina Beach and would strongly encourage others to visit and enjoy!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast nothing special. Good location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff were all very nice and most helpful . Went way out of the way to accommodate and be helpful. Would most assuredly stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Having read several negative reviews I was a little apprehensive about staying at the Microtel in Carolina Beach. My husband and I were greeted by pleasant staff who offered advice on local restaurants. The room was fine, perhaps a lick of paint would improve its appearance though. I think the only other thing I would like to suggest is that the management […] needs to visit Europe to see just what a continental breakfast actually is. Breakfast is offered in the form of cereals, bagels, waffles and muffins, you really do need to add fruit at least! Having said all that, we paid a fairly low rate, and all considered, it was completely adequate and I would return to this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was clean and quite. Staff was friendly! Its just a few blocks from the beach and very close to quite a few shops and restaurants/bars. For the price there were no complaints!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel in Carolina Beach"
Our stay at the hotel in Carolina Beach was very pleasant. It rained most of the time, so we had to find other things to do besides go to the beach and this hotel was close to several sights. I would recommend this hotel to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was very small and had a stale smell. Bedding was clean. TV was uncomfortable to watch. It was on top of wooden closet. I was not pleased with view (top of hotel roof). The price was too high for non ocean view or ocean front for off season. Internet svc. is dial up and did not work properly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent place to stay for the price!"
Staff were as friendly as anywhere I have stayed. They were attentive to our needs, and with a 4 month old, there were a few special requests that we made while there. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, and overall experience was great! Highly recommended!Genuine Expedia guest review
"DIRTY, RUSTY, MOLD"
The absolute worst Hotel I've ever stayed in, the place hasn't been upgraded since the 70's. Talking DIRT, RUST, MOLD every where.. The shower took at least 5 minutes of turning and spinning the rusty faucet to find the right spot for the hot water to come on. No perks in the room like a coffee pot, ironing board, iron, or even shampoo, or hand lotion. […] You get a wall locker for a closet, the remote was broken and taped up..

"Microtel - A good value"
We enjoyed our winter night at the beach. Microtel was clean and comfortable, with pleasant staff and adequate continental breakfast. We had to change rooms at first, but only because the previous inhabitants had dismantled the smoke detector and lit up in the non-smoking room. We were quickly moved to more suitable accommodations with no issues. The […] hotel was within walking distance of restaurants, beach and "boardwalk". I would stay there again, but might call before booking online in the off-season to check the best rate. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Hotel/High Quality Staff and Management"
My husband Jim, my little girl and I stayed at the Microtel a few days ago. On the first night I was really happy to be there and a bit overexcited so I couldn't sleep! I went to the lobby on the first floor to work on the computer and check on the website for my new company.While doing this the night auditor Jean was awesome. She brought me milk from […] the back to eat with some of the cereal used for the morning breakfast and when I asked her to, she looked over the new web site with me. She is very professional and extremely people oriented at the same time. She made sure our rate was correct as it had been a bit high from booking through a third party. I stayed there until my husband and daughter came to the lobby looking for me and finally I was able to go to sleep. Evert person from front desk clerks, Cassandra, and Mark whom we met, to the folks who brought extra towels and blankets to us and tidied our rooms, Cristy and Joe, to the general manager of the hotel, Bruce, were first rate in terms of Guest Service and kindness. The hotel is extremely clean and welcoming with all amenities one would expect in a far more costly hotel. The only thing missing was a giant flat screen TV. Who needs that anyway. We had a fine color TV with cable and a good selection of channels to choose from. As my 9 year old said, "MOM, you don't come to the beach to watch TV! You go to the Beach!" We enjoyed our stay and will book our reservations here again. I recommend the shoulder seasons such as late fall and early spring. The crowds are far less large, there's room to move, privacy on the beaches without being totally alone and the beach itself feels quieter and more calm. Bruce told us that he had taken over as the new General Manager less than 6 months ago and that he was doing everything in his power to re-build the reputation of the hotel that had apparently not been great under former management. I think that whoever hired Bruce should get an award and that Bruce and his staff Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Ok but not sure I would stay again"
The hotel was in a good area, very close to the beach, food and about 20 mins from downtown Wilmington. The neighborhood was a cute beach town. There was really only one staff person that was friendly, the rest were indifferent. The rooms were good for the price. The bathroom was not very clean. The toilet had not been scrubbed for a while and there […] was mildew in the shower. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"You get what you pay for . . ."
So, we stayed at this Microtel after searching for an 'affordable' hotel in the Carolina Beach area. Well, the best thing that I can say is that it was affordable. One of the rooms had an ant infestation in the bathroom . . . and ours was anything but clean. The fixtures in the bathroom were all old and rusty . . . the toilet ran all night and had freakish […] condensation on the lid. I am thankful that were only staying one night. As in all things, you get what you pay for . . . but since we were just sleeping there, it was manageable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Never stay again"
The continental breakfast was not good at all. They had english muffins and bagels to toast, two different kinds of muffins, raison bran, frosted flakes, coffee, orange juice and apple juice. Very dissapointed. The rooms were clean but small. The pictures on the website are decieving. Also they are not on the beach but a block away. I asked for a cofee […] pot as there is not one in every room and it was dirty with the coffee from the last user. Not very satisfied at all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good value for the money"
Had we booked thru any method rather than Hotels.com where we knew the total cost, I would have been very upset to arrive at the desk and have to agree to pay a dollar per room for the safe in the room whether it was used or not. The breakfast was VERY minimal which was fine for us. No fruit just the most basic selection of two cereals, one which was […] out, because there was a kid's sports team there. Bagels and some cupcakes and that was it. I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was about all I expecting it to be. It wasn't anything fancy, but it was good enough for the night. We stayed on the 3rd floor & when we got off the elevator you could immediately tell that this hotel was once a smokers paradise. Our room smelled about the same as the hall. We talked to the manager & he explained that as of February the […] hotel became smoke-free; they repainted everything, got new carpets & linens etc. There was still a lingering odor but after a while you don't even notice it. The manager didn't have another room to put us in so instead he gave us an air freshening spray. One thing I found pretty gross was that there was a long, black hair on top of the mattress pad that you could plainly see through the fitted sheet. I didn't complain about it though, I just cocooned myself in my Snuggie & brought my own pillow. The breakfast wasn't anything to be impressed by. There were bagels & muffins with milk, OJ, & apple juice to drink. Cereal options: Frosted Flakes or Raisin bran. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"will stay here again"
The hotel was friendly and clean. The only problem we had our entire stay was waiting to be waited on when checking in.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were pretty close to the beach, but the room wasn't that clean, the staff was not helpful or kind on the phone, and worst of all the internet only worked in our bathroom. We had no internet basically the whole time we were there. We couldn't share pictures of the beach with family. I really loved the beach, but didn't like this hotel. It is fairly […] close, and after our troubles they upgraded our room to a double, but still not very clean. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great economical price with comfort"
I was a little leary about staying here from some of the reviews I read online. After some further research of more recent reviews other than what just shows up on Expedia, I felt better about staying here. Upon arrival, I was extremely impressed with the hotel staff. The manager was very helpful in giving us advice on the area and although check in […] time is not until 3pm, they went ahead and made sure the room was ready and we got to go into our room around 1:40pm and get setteled. Which helped us out so we could drive on to Wilmington to see the fireworks. The breakfast was the only thing that we were not impressed with. There was no fruit, just cereal, muffins, bagels and only one waffle maker, which you had to stand in line to make, but for the price, it was overall a great place to stay. They did say they are considering getting an additional waffle maker. The room was great, the beds were comfortable, the staff was exceptionally friendly, kind and helpful! The beds were super comfortable! Its in a great location to the beach, restraunts, stores, etc....everything you could need is close to you. My husband, myslef and my 2 kids would definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Half the price, just as good"
We have stayed at other hotels in Carolina Beach and paid double the price just to be on the beach. But the rooms there were usually kind of dingy and humid. The Microtel was half the price, and all that we missed was being able to walk out of the hotel onto the beach. We were already planning to visit with family on the beach anyway, so why pay extra? Our […] only complaint about the room was that the air conditioning was over-sized for the small room. That meant that it was too loud and too strong, and while you could vary the temperature setting, you couldn't vary the volume of air being blown. It didn't make the room unusable -- most people would find the complaint that the air conditioning was too strong to be a stupid complaint over the Fourth of July weekend. Maybe it's just me... But it was clean, the staff was pleasant, and the breakfast was sufficient -- bagels, English muffins, toast, cereal, and self-made waffles. On the down side, the orange juice in the OJ machine is the kind that comes in a large pre-mixed, largely oxidized container, and it really wasn't very appetizing. So -- air conditioning was too strong, and lousy orange juice. Other than that -- good value. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
