Carousel Beach Inn ★★

Perfect getaway in Fort Myeres Beach

Would recommend Mon, May 16, 2011
This rooms are very spacious and the location could not get better. It's on a section of the beach that isn't very crowded and very beautiful. The in-room kitchen was a great added bonus. Great job on the remodel!

A Dog's Life

Would recommend Mon, Apr 25, 2011
We picked this spot for a quick holiday weekend getaway with our dog, and while we had a good time, he was completely delighted. The room was simple and clean and had the basic amenities, including a workable full (but small) kitchen. Don't expect luxury, but with the exception of missing curtains in the bathroom windows, everything met expectations for a renovated older property like this. Unfortunately, the pet friendly rooms have a parking lot view, which felt a bit like staying at any landlocked motel and kept us from waking up to a view of the beach. Our hairy companion didn't mind at all, and we were only steps from one of the most spectacular (and pet friendly) beaches we have ever seen. He walked, danced and played himself to exhaustion and his obvious joy gave us laughs and good memories. My advice is to book your romantic couple's getaway somewhere else, but consider this as a great place to spend a couple of days on the beach if you want to be the best friend to your furry best friend and don't mind walking a few miles every day on a beautiful beach.

Would recommend Mon, Apr 18, 2011
THE HOTEL WAS GREAT IT LOOKED GOOD INSIDE AND OUT AND WAS DEF COZY COULDNT COMPLAIN EXCEPT I DIDNT SEE A BLOW DRYER OR AND IRON/IRONING BOARD YOU MAY HAVE TO ASK THE FRONT DESK FOR IT THOUGH. THE POOL WAS NICE AND BLUE VERY CLEAN EVEN HAD A SHOWER FOR YOU TO WASH UP IN THE POOL AREA RESTROOM. STEPPING OUT YOUR DOOR YOU CAN SEE THE OCEAN VIEW. CLOSE TO EVERYTHING AND WALKING DISTANCE TO 7-11 FOR ANY NEEDS. TROLLY STOP RIGHT THERE AND NICE COMFORTABLE BEDS WITH FEATHER COMFORTER! HAD A GREAT TIME AND WAS WELL WORTH THE STAY THERE...

Very good value

Would recommend Mon, Mar 28, 2011
A nice quiet hotel. The room was huge and had a lovely fresh color scheme. It had great amenities - huge bed, safe, small kitchen, sofa bed - and was very comfortable. I was able to compare it to a room at a chain hotel my friends stayed at just down the street during the same time and the Carousel Inn's room was much larger, brighter and better value for money. The only area for improvement would be the servicing of the room which wasn't done particuarly well the second day. Overall, very happy.

Entertainment hint

The tiki bar at the Holiday Inn Express, about 0.4 miles down the road (you can get there along the beach), has a great outdoor deck with a view of the sunset and happy hour.

Great facility and location

Would recommend Tue, Feb 22, 2011
Excellent, comfortable suite on the beach. Newly rennovated. Fully equipped kitchenette with new appliances. New easy to operate windows letting in fresh ocean breeze. Mainly walked the beach with our dog several times a day. Hung out. Read. Relaxing no-pressure get-away. Close to excellent restaurants if you want to eat out OR Publix grocery store if you want to prepare your own snacks and meals.

Money saver

Between a Publix grocery store and a CVS pharmacy. Convenient for food shopping or medical needs. Facility is pet-friendly. We were not prepared for or alerted that there would be a pet fee. Would have been nice to know [...].

Fun, sun, and relaxation.

Would recommend Tue, Apr 13, 2010
At the last minute I was given the opportunity to take 3 of my granddaughters (ages 12,12,9) on vacation. I booked with the Carousel Inn via Internet, sight unseen. After reading the reviews I was a little nervous. After arriving and meeting [...] at the front desk, my fears were put to rest. The location was fantastic. We could walk out of our room onto the beach. The facility is in need of a faclift (which is scheduled for Aug/Sept), but the location, staff and cleanliness made up for it. We had a great vacation and I actually got to rest. I have stayed in finer facilities but I can't say I had more fun. I will go back again.

surprising weekend

Would recommend Mon, Jun 15, 2009
The motel was a little old,but very clean and friendly. The beach was family- friendly and quiet. The staff was wonderful and the other visitors friendl. Orbitz did not get our reservation through and when we arrived the price was lower than Orbitz quoted. We would definitly stay again. Beautiful sparkling clean pool.

Dining

A great place for breakfast is in the Sea Grape plaza less than 1 mile from the motel. Pricewas great and so was the food and the service.

Really nice, quiet location, exceptionally friendly staff, room big but need upgrading. Nothing modern here, but the pool was nice, the price was fair, and parking/room access was easy. I would stay here again.
