Needs updating!

Posted Aug 30, 2016
Pros: Restaurant on site, close to beach
Cons: SERIOUSLY need to update facility and need more staff. Had breakfast at on site restaurant and they only had 2 wait staff working.
Hotel is right on the beach and you get a voucher for 2 beach chair rental. The place is in need of some updating, the AC unit was full of dust bunnies, doors were filthy, walking area in outdoor swimming pool was full of algae looking stuff and was VERY slippery.

Pros: Access to the beach was nice
Cons: Everything!
I am extremely disappointed in the accommodations at this hotel. From the moment that my family and I checked in, the level of customer service was substandard. I was told that I should be able to check in by 4 yet my Expedia reservation says 3pm. Also, the first night I had requested extra blankets for the sofa sleeper. I never received them. After we asked, we opened the sleeper sofa to only discover that the mattress had a huge slice in it. We also had to call for service on the refrigerator which was not holding temperature. Day 2, the room was not cleaned until about 5pm. Even after cleaned, I had to go downstairs to get coffee that wasn't refilled. To top it off, my father who is disabled could not use the pool because it was closed. He cannot get to the beach, so the pool is his only option. The pool was not cleaned because it still has a ton of sand in it. I am emailed the manager after Day 2 and I did not receive a response until Day 4 and it still all the issues were resolved. A door handle to the hotel was broke for most of the visit and was fixed but broke again! My daughter got her hand slammed in the door. The pool area did not have proper drainage resulting in water sitting on the ground making the area very slick. The mattress on the one bed is terrible. You can feel the springs in it. The air conditioning in the main area was warm as well. We paid good money to stay at this hotel and I don't feel we received our money's worth

Less that what we expected

Posted Aug 24, 2016
Pros: beach front, pools, nice to have a bar and grill at the beach - although they were average.
Cons: a lot ! the service staff could care; they did not. the rooms could be in better shape.
Location: decent location, uptown outside of having the green turtle close most places are about 10 blocks away. we know OC well and mostly drove.
the carousel has great character and a lot to offer families with kids. the place as a hotel is very average; the rooms like a motel. the international staff did not care about anything. they barely cleaned our room - did not leave replacement towels or soap and did not vacuum. their service in other parts of the hotel was disappointing. we expected more out of an iconic ocean city spot. the beds were hard. the beach was not as crowded as I thought it would be. all in all it was ok.

Hotel not well maintained

Posted Aug 19, 2016
The hotel is old and not well maintained. The fridge and the microwave were broken when we arrived in the room and our foods were spoiled because we didn't pay attention and put our foods into the fridge for the night. The bathroom was so small. But we had the beach view from the room and the beach was nice and clean. But the hotel .... No I didn't like it. At some point we asked for more towels and they waited more than one hour to send us someone. The other thing I don't like was they let some customers put they beach towels swimsuits everywhere on the balcony to dry. It was unpleasant and messy. I won't go back there next time even though I love the beach.

Too Big to be friendly

Posted Aug 18, 2016
When we arrived there was a deluge of guests checking into the hotel. When it became our turn, we were informed that the room was not ready despite it being 4PM. Asked if another might be available was told, without checking, that they were totally sold out so we needed to wait. At 4:20 after asking again if room was ready we told it was not but somehow, another room was found and we were checked in. There also seemed to be a communication problem as none of the people behind the counter, that I spoke with, had a full grasp of English. They were courteous but I needed to ask them a question in two different ways so that they could properly respond. I dare say that the ice skating show was very well done and well attended. Overall the experience at the hotel was OK but then again, the bar we set was not terribly high.
