My wife and I spent the last week of August at the Carousel with our daughter, son and two grandchildren (ages 6 months and 3 years). We had an ocean-front condo that we rented on the 19th floor. The ocean views were beautiful and since our condo went all the way through from back to front, we also had lovely... More

I found myself on a business trip needing a motel room for the night. Unfortunately it was Bike week in Ocean City and the place was just about filled up.

After many years in OCMD we were looking for a new place to stay. After 20+ years at our favorite condo we checked out the Carousel for a change. The lobby was impressive with many amenities available. Staff was pleasant, parking plentiful and beach was close to the outdoor bar and restaurant. After staying in the hotel portion we asked...

For us, The Skating Rink and Show here was the main attraction. There is an atrium where the rink is housed and there are rooms with their decks overlooking the Rink.
