View was awesome. Beds were comfortable. Location was perfect.,

I made this reservation for my sister's wedding over memorial day weekend. I think, because I was renting this on Orbitz, I assumed this was a standard hotel. It is not. This is an old timey motel that has been turned into beach condos. We rented a one-room condo that had a microwave, little fridge and coffee maker. One queen bed and sofa bed. A couple things make this different from a normal hotel - 1. There is not someone at the desk all the time. When we were there, there was only someone at the front desk from 9 am - 8 pm. I just called to arrange late check in and called again to leave early. 2. The wifi is spotty. Real spotty. If you're planning on streaming anything for rainy beach days, that's not going to happen. 3. It was a little dirty. Again - about as clean as a normal airbnb. Not as clean as a holiday inn. It is right by the beach. That part is fantastic. This is a great community. So I don't want my review to put you off, but if you are looking for a more traditional hotel experience, this is not it.

We stayed for a weekend just past peak season There was no front desk staff and no housekeeping on duty. We had to bang on the front desk to get the attention of the staff in the back to check in. We were not advised there was no housekeeping - just came back to an unmade up room. Then back to banging on the desk to ask questions. The pool was closed. Very disappointing.

Had a great time staying at Cara Mara. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I liked that it was off of the boardwalk a couple of streets because it was quieter. Just far enough away that you could still walk to the boardwalk. Many resturants within walking distance also so you don't have to worry about paying for street parking every time you leave the hotel. Just one block away from the beach, and the beach isnt as long down in the crest so it doesn't take forever to walk to a good spot to settle in. Over all it was a fantastic relaxing vacation and I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others as well. Thank you Cara Mara!

Always concerned when going to a beach motel for the first time about cleanliness, but was very happy with the room and the area in general. Great access to the beach.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean. One bedroom, two beds, pull out sofa in main living room, and a well stocked kitchen would have fit the whole family nicely. Directly across the street from the ocean ("Crest" sign). We could watch the waves from our third floor room perfectly. Pool and playground looked fun for young kids too! Descent place for not a lot of money.
