Over Charge all the way!
Not a 40 and over crowd, loud music staff under trained not to reassign an active, in use room, plus they charge you $100+ to cancel the reservation, even if you beat the electronic notification from to their front desk....Very Disappointed

Drifters Reef Hotel, Carolina Beach
The place and person who checked us in were just fine. But to our disappointment the walls are paper thin and the people in the room next to us were up until after 3 am. We could hear everything they were saying and then the music started. There are no phones in the rooms to contact the front desk. Cute place but overall was very disappointing. The air conditioner was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think let alone sleep, the one thing it did do was drown out some of the noise from the room next door.

Cute little pet friendly motel
It was great and I liked the location. The lady at the front desk was very nice too. It’s pet friendly too, which is nice! They even have a fenced in dog park for my dog to run around.
