We have been going to the Carolina for a number of years with friends and family. Perfect location steps from the ocean. Staff was very helpful and courteous. Helped me down the stairs with my luggage!

Booked 2 nights for a family getaway at the beach. Rooms are clean but no air conditioning! Left after one night and got a full refund due to all the young people partying until 4 in the morning.

Don't let the negative reviews fool you! This is a great place to stay! It may not be the most modern or fancy, but it is clean and comfy.

My family and I have never been to Maine. As I was researching, I came across Carolina Resort Motel. I booked right away. When we arrived to the motel, we could not believe how close it was to the beach. The staff of the motel made our stay anazing. They are helpful and friendly. I would book this place again.

“FYI. Our rooms did not have A/C. The first time it wasn't that hot and we didn't notice. The second stay it was HOT and it was stuffy. We brought our own fan and made it bearable. Stay in the end units or ones at the beach end of the courtyard. The courtyard echos and is usually filled with families - so try to stay out of the first floor courtyard rooms.”
