Every staff member was friendly and willing to help. The property was clean, breakfast area was large and food was fresh, the location was perfect. I left wanting to stay longer. I highly recommend this hotel.

We are local residents of CB but stayed a few nights while work was being done on our home. Stayed on top floor, looking out at the beach and business area.

Room was large and well done. Very comfy. Really clean and felt like home.

BTW, one of the Managers, "Rachel" was awesome in helping us out in every regard.

My family hadn’t been to Carolina Beach before but we’ve stayed several times at Emerald Isle, Duck, Topsail, and Wrightsville. We were interested in the boardwalk experience so booked 3 nights over the 4th holiday.

The staff and accommodations were very nice and clean at this hotel. The parking was nice underneath the hotel and there were several elevators and easily accessible stairways to get into the hotel. The hotel was right on the boardwalk with several access ramps to the ocean.

The week we stayed the ocean was a bit rough with red undertow flags all over the beach. This was no big deal because there were many life guards and places to go into the ocean. If you ventured out too far you would just get whistle blown and asked to come back in. However the water was shallow and you could go out far before going deep enough to cover you head.

Back to the hotel; there was a clean pool, nearby showers to clean the sand off and a tiki bar with mixed and virgin drinks for the kids. The prices were a little steep for the size of your drink but the convenience couldn’t be beat. Also the hotel was right on the boardwalk so many restaurants and bars were just a stones throw away.

The staff were very friendly and didn’t complain when I twice lost my room key in the ocean! There was breakfast each morning from 6-10am. They rotated through different types of buffet fair: biscuits and sausage, eggs, bacon and omelettes, etc. There was also cereal, oatmeal, fruit and yogurt.

The hotel is only 7 stories, each floor with about 12 rooms so didn’t “feel” too large or with too many people even though we were at full occupancy during our stay. It never felt crowded, we never had a problem with seating at breakfast and there was a 24 hour hot water and coffee station on the first floor. The kids couldn’t get enough Swiss miss got chocolate during our stay!

Recommend Bowen’s seafood restaurant. We saw Mr. Beast and his buddies eating there with us (google him if you’ve never heard of him — my kids quickly pointed out that he had 5 million you tube followers!).

Anyway highly recommend the hotel - we had a lot of fun.

My husband and I are seasoned travelers accustomed to staying in high-end establishments when on vacation. Choices for hotels and resorts are limited in Carolina Beach but we thought we would give the Inn a try. We are retired without children and were looking for a quiet, relaxing environment. The Hampton Inn is new and clean, and it is situated on the ocean. But, adjacent to the property is an amusement park, boardwalk with touristy shops, and public beach access. The weekend was incredibly crowded and noisy. The Inn has a very small pool considering the number of rooms, and children dominate the pool area. It is not a relaxing environment for adults. The beach is nice, but the Inn does not provide beach chairs or umbrellas; they must be rented from a vendor. The Tiki Bar is small and when live music is being played, it blares to the extent we could hear it in our 7th floor room. The cleaning staff failed to clean our room on two of our four days there. When we reported it, the front desk insisted we had our do not disturb sign on the door. We did not. I give it three stars because we should have known that Hampton Inns, although fine for business travel and family vacations, are not a pampering experience.

Hello goldenbares,

I wanted to personally write and apologize for the experience you had with us. The week that you stayed with us is by far the busiest week we have at our property and Carolina Beach. I would love to discuss this with you further if you could please reach out to me via email or telephone. Thank you for your input and I am looking forward to discussing this matter with you.

Sincerely,
Lance Fischer

This hotel's location is excellent, it was also extremely clean and provided an awesome beach experience. I didn't see any other place to stay that offered what Hampton offered here. Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Carolina Beach.
