Beach Carousel is a family friendly motel just steps away from the Virginia Beach boardwalk near the Virginia Aquarium.
Rooms and apartments offer air conditioning, in-room safe, flat-screen TV with HBO, mini-fridge and microwave and a private bathroom with shower/tub combination. Apartments offer a full kitchen and separated living and sleeping areas.
Beach Carousel offers a 24-hour front desk. A seasonal outdoor pool is available. Laundry facilities are provided. Free parking for one car per unit is included.
The Virginia Boardwalk area has many restaurants and bars to offer just a short walk from the hotel, for example Old Country Pancake House Buffet for breakfast or seafood restaurants like Ocean Eddie’s.
The fishing pier, sand beach and boardwalk are just a five minute walk away. Atlantic Avenue, the main shopping and entertainment area, is one street over. The Virginia Aquarium is less than two miles away.
If you want to be near the beach without being right on the beachfront this location is great. Access to the long sandy beach of Virginia Beach, the boardwalk area with lots of shops, nightlife and restaurants and the nearby fishing pier and water sports activities that can be booked make this motel very convenient.
Near the beach any parking is usually for a fee. The free parking provided with the room is a little perk that makes it easy to not have to worry about this extra expense.
Good rooms, friendly staff
Guests liked the staff and friendliness of service. Most guests found the rooms clean and comfortable and enjoyed amenities like the microwave and fridge provided. The bathrooms have recently been remodeled.
The rooms are functionable and clean, but nothing fancy in terms of decoration or interior design. If you are staying at a hotel to enjoy the ambience you might want to give this one a pass.
Noise can be an issue
Some guests felt that the area is rather loud and that room neighbors were also a nuisance. As this is more of a budget motel you might find it booked pretty full most of the time, and that can lead to a louder environment.
Housekeeping works limited hours
Unless housekeeping gets access to your room in the morning your room might not be made up. Some guests felt that was a major inconvenience while others did not mind it.
