After reading some of the poor reviews for this motel I felt I needed to share my experiences. My family and I began going to the Carolina from the year it opened and, to this day, I continue to go there every Labour Day for a week's stay. The beachfront rooms are literally steps from the beach and the view...

No A/C, Rugs gross, 1960's decor, beds are aweful, we bring our own blankets and pillows. Needs to be gutted and start over, can be done cheap, not sure why nothing has been done as the location is ideal. Every othe hotel was sold out but lots of vacany here. I hope the guys now running it turn it around.

The rooms have no airconditioning which we find peculiar in the 21st century! The room is clean but in need of extensive remodeling. We stayed on the second floor, but our friends stayed on the first floor and their rooms had a very strong musty smell. The location is good and it is cheap so if that's all you require,...

This was the worst place I ever saw. I will never use tripadvisor because of deceptive pictures & reviews. We could not even stay there. Awful place.

We knew the Carolina was an old hotel from reading previous reviews. My wife and I found it dated, but the room was clean and presentable. What we were not prepared for was the 20-25 yahoo guests that occupied the hotel while we were there. These people, from Quebec, took over the courtyard every night from 6 PM until they...

This hotel was THE WORST. We read the reviews, but didnt belive them--we should have--the rooms smelled of mold, the place was probably faboulous in the 60's but NOTHING and I mean NOTHING has been up-graded since then. Thank God we brought our own sheets--since we found an old sock while changing the bed! The maids do nothing other than...

The hotel is right on the beach and not a far walk from the Pier. It is however VERY old and in need of updates. The room wasn't really dirty just old. The only dirty part was the box spring on the bed which someone either spilled tomato soup on or a homicide occured on it. See attached photo.

We have been going to the Carolina every 4th. of July for a 3-4 night stay for the last 10 years. I have tried a few different hotels in Old Orchard for other occassions, but the Carloina is the best by far. We stay in the room closest to the beach which has its own private deck! There is no...

“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.”
