    Great stay!
    Great location steps away from the beach. Clean and spacious room. Friendly staff. Good WIFI speed.

    Never had a better experience!
    What an amazing, cute place! We were visiting Carolina Beach for 2 nights and chose Dry Dock. Definitely worth the price. Owner is really sweet, great service. Our room was perfect-clean,comfortable, cool in the heat, our room was like a little apartment, and very close to beach(maybe a block)! I would choose this place over any other due to the sheer treatment/hospitality there. LOVED everything about it!

    Musty Dry Dock
    We had to find a different hotel because the smell of mustiness was so bad it affected my breathing. We check three different rooms and they all smelled musty. We stayed at the Microtel and it was great.

    Clean,comfortable, but really needs a face-lift
    I picked it because it was across from Carolina Beach--the beach itself. But I got in late and left around 9:30 am, so I didn't use the beach. But the hotel is! (I guess that is the correct word.) While the place is clean, and my two encounters with the management were pleasant, the room itself was back in the 1960s. I like the fat tat the ma nabger/ow er took the trouble to leave a ke for me in my room,and all. The shower worked fine and the bed was clean and comfortble.. But for $127--even at high season--guests shoulod expet some amenities and a larger room and bathroom. No real complaings but the value for the dollar could be beter. Just needs updaating.
