          The owners are nice. The suite was clean. It's oceanfront and has a small pool. It's within walking distance to everything. It allows pets. Those are the positives. The place is pretty run down and needs a ton of updates. The back porch was basically...More

          The beach was very nice and we enjoyed our stay. We stayed in early September and had a nice stay. The ocean water was warm and the beach was nice and sandy. There is a pool at the hotel that was very nice as well.

          Good Morning from Carolina Beach! Chuck and I are excited to be here as the New Managers of the Mermaid Manor as of March 3, 2016! We have made a lot of interior changes and have many projects in the works for the exterior as well! Chuck and I stayed here at the manor last March and fell in love with this old gal! She has weathered more than a few storms in her lifetime and we are enjoying giving her the face lift of love that she deserves! I would be remiss in my duties as a manager and as a traveler myself, if I did not take this opportunity to discuss her past reviews prior to Chuck and I taking on this wonderful opportunity ...Some good, some bad, some pleasant and some not so pleasant but extremely helpful to us and our lovely owner so we can make the improvements needed to make your next visit even more wonderful! Yes, she needs some love and we are working daily to bring to life her hidden beauty. Yes, her walls are thin and no, we have no immediate plans to change that. No, we do not have a problem with bed bugs or I wouldn't be living her! No, we are not a big chain motel or hotel, we are a small, independently owned and operated small business beach house motel that we share with the public. An old home built after Hurricane Hazel in the 1950's with knotty pine walls, settled hard wood floors and original double hung windows. A place where you can kick off your shoes, drink your beverage of choice on our top deck overlooking the ocean with your honey and fur baby by your side. Needless to say, if you're looking for glitz and glitter, this is not the place for you. If you're looking to take a step back to a time when dutch doors and french doors were all the rage, scratched up hard wood floors felt like coming home under your bare feet and the smell of coconut oil mixed with hamburgers cooking on a grill drifted through your room on the winds of our salty air, then yes, come on home for a visit! We are conveniently located in order to walk to most attractions, stores and restaurants. You will enjoy our private beach access, free parking, free wifi, clean pool and beach house as well as new linens, bedding, art deco and furnishings. The small but recently renovated efficiency kitchens have full size frig, hot plates, microwave, coffee pot, toasters and are stocked with tableware, glassware, pots, pans and utensils. Most rooms are furnished with antiques left original or painted in shabby chic beach colors and while our bathrooms are small, they are very clean but due to some house settling the shower tiles need some love. We are so excited and greatfully blessed to be here and we are looking forward to meeting and greeting each of you! For any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to contact Chuck or Tammy. That's It for now fellow beach lovers and travelers 'cause Surfs Up!

          How is the bed bug situation now? I reserved an ocean front room on the second floor for July and if I'm going to be walking into a bed bug situation I want to cancel my reservation and go somewhere else...
