I came with my husband and child recently for two nights. The first night none of us slept. Partially due to the disgusting room and partially to the very old drunk woman slamming doors and yelling. The air conditioner stopped working in the middle of the night. The beds are so uncomfortable. Luckily, we brought a blanket in case our...

They had high prices due to everywhere else was book up and they knew people would pay these high prices to stay at the beach. Keep your money if nothing else is ava.!

I wanted a quick get away for the weekend. Since we decided this on such short notice it was difficult to find a place that allowed pets and you could only stay 1 night (most places on the weekend require at least a 2 night min.) We made our reservations over the phone and the individual was extremely nice. Upon...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Russo's Motel is a mom & Pop style motel located a block and the half from the ocean. We are within walking distance of the boardwalk, shopping, dining, amusements and nightlife. We have the largest pool in Carolina Beach, free wifi, extended cable and plenty of parking for our guests. We have locking bedbug covers on all of our mattresses and boxsprings. We also do not have carpet, or wooden bedframes where bugs can hide. Despite some unpleasant, untrue reviews from a disgruntled ex employee and their friends in 2015, I assure you all of our rooms are very clean and well updated. We welcome you to come by and check out our rooms and judge for yourselves before you stay. We have complete confidence that you will be pleasantly surprised. ... more   less
