Great location on a very wide part of the beach so it is a hike to the waters edge. Quiet and far from the bustle of the main business area of Fort Myers Beach. Our room was towards the middle on the ground floor and we found the limited accesses off of the walkway to the room entries a bit...

Place is literally a dump. However we were right on the beach and the staff couldn't have been nicer-specifically Nick!!! My husband wanted to check out the moment we arrived but we had already lugged all of our luggage up the skinny flight of stairs. I wanted to get to enjoying our vacation! The air conditioning worked great-A big plus...

We hadn't intended to go to Fort Myers Beach, so we hadn't booked anywhere. A friend recommended the Carousel. We got a unit for 5 nights. Stayed in 113. Just perfect for what we wanted - near to the beach, small kitchenette and access to all we wanted to make the stay comfortable. Trolly bus stop and 711 across the...

We stayed here for a night before our fishing trip out of Ft Myers. It was very clean but the rooms were not modern. Just a little outdated. The location was ideal, near the beach and a great restaurant across the street. The area was quiet but probably due to it being the end of the season. Overall great value,...

Dear JeffandCarla, We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your night here at the Carousel Inn. One night is too short, you must come back and visit for a longer stay next time! Our plan for the summer is to renovate all of the rooms so they will no longer be outdated and hopefully up to your satisfaction. We...

After doing A LOT of research and reading of reviews, we decided to take a chance on the Carousel Inn on the Beach for our five night family vacation in Fort Myers. Our biggest thing was that we wanted to be directly on the beach and not pay a ton of money to do so. We traded some luxuries to...

We checked in and the staff is great!! The room was a little run down but we expected that as it seemed like an older hotel.We had agreed ahead of time to move to a room closer to the beach but being it was so far back from the water that it really didn't matter but the second day we...

We traded some luxuries to be right on the beach. The room had pretty much everything we needed. It was a little cramped when 2 of us tried to get ready to go out at the same time and the kitchenette is for one person at a time. But the main room had lots of room so we did not...

Our overall experience with the staff at Carousel was wonderful. All employees were very helpful and friendly, especially Nick. The location was nice with several stores and restaurants nearby. However our room carpet (136) was very dirty and smelled of urine. The smell was so strong we couldn't sit inside in the evening to relax and we couldn't sit outside...

The Carousel is clean, though a bit aged. The location is perfect, on a wide stretch of gorgeous beach. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. The trolley stops in front of the hotel, and there are restaurants and a movie theater close enough to walk or bike. Great place for a family!

Looking at the other reviews, we obviously did not get a room that was renovated. We are a couple that are fine with a clean nice room....this was not. Very antiquated room had a terrible odor. Would not recommend staying here or if so, see the room first. Worst place we ever stayed. I will say that the front desk...
