This year we took the girls to Carolina Beach, NC. for 5 days. Contrary to what I had read about Carolina Beach on the internet, the beach was nice. We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott right on the beach. It was great for us because of the 2 toddlers we were packing around, everything you could possibly need was within walking distance, and the …
Today was a nice relaxing day. However, since we relaxed too much we are now very, very sun burnt and very glad we bought a large bottle of Aloe.
The day began a bit later than usual and then was again set back when we could not get the shower to have hot water. Later we found out it was not a shower problem but a hotel problem where a …
Today, we began with a hearty breakfast than hit the road with much more than we had came with. We even had to put all of our (mainly Tiffany's) chocolate in a little cooler, with lots of ice in the very back of the truck to make sure it would not melt.
So the trip began. It was fairly uneventful except for the sadness that my ipod stopped …
Kelly flew into RDU around 8 PM. From there we had about a 2 hour drive to get to our hotel on the beach. Needless to say, we were really tired when we arrived. Carolina Beach was decorated up with Christmas lights. I've never associated the ocean and Christmas together, but it was neat nonetheless. The Carolina Beach Courtyard is right off the …
... we settled into a very comfortable booth for six, we had a good time talking and waiting for our Calabash-style fried fish, shrimp, clams, scallops and fries. The consensus was that it was worth the wait, and nobody left hungry.
When we returned, we snuck off to the beach after dark and sat watching more stars than I'd ever seen. We returned, watched the last quarter of the Auburn/Washington State football game, showered and headed to bed.
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We recently stayed at the Courtyard and I couldn't have been more pleased with our overall experience. We stayed with 2 toddlers, and as far as location it was ideal! You are right on the beach, and can walk to alot of great places to eat, not to mention the carnival next door. The staff were wonderful, and kept the place very clean.

It was worth the money!
We were on the 10th floor and thought it was alittle high up at first, but once we stepped out on the balcony, we were hooked! The view was gorgeous! The staff was friendly, the rooms were great, being a brand new place. We spent alot of time out on the balcony and enjoyed our two nights stay.
Carolina and Kure Beaches are some of my wifes and my favorite places to get away. We decided for our 14th wedding anniversary to go down to Carolina beach for a little get away. We checked into the Courtyard and not 10 minutes after we got into the room the slamming doors started. It got so bothersome we asked to be moved which the staff gladly did (even upgraded the room). We were told that they would try to isolate us from any further noisy guests. At mindnight we were awaken by people moving into the room beside ours slamming the door constantly. It sounded like they were bowling next door. We called the desk and they were moved this time. This continued on one side of us or the other every night. No one could close a door quitely. We were so dissapointed in the rock hard beds and constantly being waken up by slamming doors, we checked out early and cut our vacation short. You either have to sleep like the dead here or bring ear plugs. We won't go back.
Beautiful views from every room in the hotel. Ample parking in a beach community is unheard of but, not here! The beach was right out the door and uncrowded with tourists, a great little surfing competition was going on just down the beach. Restaurants within walking distance were affordable, casual and elegant. The room was small but well laid out, with a private balcony. The restaurant was cozy and had a tasty buffet breakfast. Poolside service was available to spoil you more!
The Courtyard Carolina Beach is a new hotel on Carolina Beach. This hotel reminded me more of a full service Marriott than a Courtyard. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The rooms are great - each room has free wireless internet access and standard Courtyard amenities. All rooms face the beach. Since the hotel opened within the last year (during 2003), the rooms and the common areas are clean and look impressive. There is a small gym (treadmills, stair machine, exercise bike) and an indoor pool and hot-tub. In addition, there is a nice outdoor pool - unfortunately, the pool temperature was extremely cold (so cold that even when the temperature outside was 80F and sunny, the pool really could not be used). The beach is a 2 minute walk from the hotel (Great beach that is not crowded at all). The hotel also has a full service restaurant that we did not use. Expect to pay $25-50 more per night on Friday or Saturday night. Also, this tends to be a family hotel, especially on weekend nights, so the indoor pool (which was quite small) was constantly filled with children. Overall, a great hotel - I just wish they would heat the outdoor pool.
Great stay during off season
Had a great stay here in the winter. very inexpensive. New and clean.
all rooms ocean view. Staff was helpful. I would stay again
Worked great for our family
Warner Brothers TV series "One Tree Hill" has used our home several times in the last few months for filming, and we needed a place to stay that was convenient with food and other facilities. We chose the Courtyard by Marriott, and the staff, food, and all accomodations were just perfect for our needs. It gave us a great place to stay while out of our home. We are thankful to have this excellent hotel in Carolina Beach and have never seen a staff work harder to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. Thanks very much.
Bring your own pillow!!!
We stayed at the Courtyard over Valentines Weekend. We ate dinner at the restaurant. Kinda expensive, but all 5 courses were superb. We also ate breakfast there the next morning, and it was more than worth the $10 for the buffet! The only bad part was the actual sleeping. The walls are paper thin and ALL NIGHT LONG we heard the TV in the room next to us and the people (mostly kids) running up and down the halls and slamming doors. The bed was pretty comfortable, but the pillows were horrible. They were half the length of a normal pillow and extremely flat and lumpy. We would definitely go back though!! It was a great experience over all!
This is a great place, but even the greats have their issues. So here's the bad part first.
Waaay over priced
Brand new and clean but 200 a night is ridiculous for Carolina Beach.
Loved this hotel
Stayed at the Courtyard for 2 nights over Labor Day weekend. The hotel is beautiful, a little expensive but it was worth it. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The pool area is great, live entertainment on Fri night. I would definitely go back.
