It's incredible how John and his colleagues care about their guests. We got upgraded just like this, enjoyed a terrific breakfast and slept very well in a nice and comfortable room. There's even a snack in the afternoon with crackers, cheese, vegetables and drinks!

My husband and I were looking for a getaway for our 21st Anniversary and this was the perfect spot. The staff, Lisa and Doug , were very attentive and accommodating. We felt very welcome and taken care of. The food and refreshments were delicious. The location is great just minutes from the nightlife in AC. This was our first B&B experience and we will definitely be returning and bringing our friends.

All areas of accommodation were satisfactorily met, however the room's (Rolling Dunes) temperature was either too hot or too chilly. Food exceeded our expectations because we weren't expecting to have choices for breakfast, and of course the fireplace added so much warmth and coziness during this cold weekend. I would recommend it for a weekend in the summer because the entrance to the beach is so close and the ugly unfinished construction next door will be complete by then.

We stayed over the MLK weekend at this B&B. It is not "luxury" as was advertised, but suited us fine. We are not very nit-picky. We actually did not stay in the "main house" of the B&B, but instead in the "Cottage house" across the street. Room: Our room needs some updating, but large comfortable bed (King) and it was clean. Floor is not even, kind of tips toward the middle of the house, which was a bit off-putting. Also, although we were there in January, it got very warm in the room overnight and we didn't know how to control the temp, ultimately opened a window for a couple hours. Also, always have bottled water available in small fridge in the hall. Great addition. Also they provided travel soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and refilled each day. B&B: They have a "social" every evening with wine/apps etc in the main house. That was fun. Sat in front of fireplace and played checkers for a bit. Quite comfortable. Food: Breakfast was good, standard. Had a buffet option while waiting for made-to-order French toast, pancakes, omelettes, eggs, etc. Very filling. Location: I thought it was perfect. Outside of Atlantic city, but only about 1/2 block to the boardwalk. You could walk to AC if you wanted. I think about 1.5 mi. Also about 6 blocks from jitney stop that takes you all around AC for cheap! $2.50/person. Street parking not an issue in January, but I could see it being very tough in the summer. Would stay here again for the money.

We stayed at the Carisbrooke Inn on October 7 and 8. It is a charming place to stay in a great location. The dining area/living room is large and they have coffee, tea, and ice available there plus they usually have cookies available too. There is a parking lot around the block from the Inn so you do not have to park on the street. We had a room with a king bed and a jacuzzi tub/shower combination. We could look out the window from our room and see the ocean. We were a half a block from the ocean and the boardwalk. Our breakfasts were absolutely fabulous! I had the best omelet ever at the Inn. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with the other guests and our server (a delightful lady from Poland). We were around the corner from Lisa's, a pizza place that had great food. We also drove to the Down Beach Deli, a short distance from the Inn, which was a great experience. They have a large menu with daily specials and the quantity of food was large. The Inn has a deck on the second floor with a great view out to the ocean. We would definitely return to the Inn and stay again.

I recently attended a conference in Atlantic City. Rather than staying at a casino, which wanted a fortune for a mediocre room; I stayed at the Carisbrooke Inn. It was an excellent value. The room was small, but clean and very quiet. I slept very well there, it was so comfortable and peaceful. The Carisbrooke Inn is only a few feet from the boardwalk. Turn left on the boardwalk, and it is a long, pleasant walk to Atlantic City. Turn right, and stroll the boards all through the elegant town of Ventnor. All in all, I was very pleased with my stay. It was a terrific alternative to the casinos.

My wife and I stayed at Carisbrooke several days during August. We have been there many times and we've always marveled at the homey, charming feel of the place as well as the impressive amenities: beach chairs; beach tags; beach towels; wonderful breakfast; happy hour. Steps to the beach. A lovely room with a king-size bed and a sitting area plus a beautiful private bath. Beat sleep I've had in a long while!

Thank you for taking time to review our Inn. We are glad you had a nice time with us. We also realize our check in process may need some work and are looking at ways to be sure every guest is properly informed at check in but also to try and speed up the check in process. Thanks for the feedback. We always appreciate it so that we can better understand how we are doing from the perspective of a guest.

My husband and I purchased a Groupon for this bed and breakfast and it was an exceptional place to stay!!! We were treated like"a member of the family". The room we stayed in (9) was very comfortable and the bed was very spacious. The proximity to the boardwalk was very convenient . We stayed for 2 nights and although the weather wasn't the best we still brought beach chairs on the beach and snuggled under a blanket and enjoyed the tranquility of the water... The breakfast that was served on each morning was so delicious!!! It was thoughtful to have homemade cookies and fruit always available. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a welcoming, homey environment which truly clears the mind and soul from the chaos we all endure in our daily lives. We look forward to returning soon....Ed and Jennie B

I had the opportunity to stay here this past weekend (my second time) and I just loved it again! The Inn is so lovely and inviting, the staff friendly, the linens and rooms are wonderfully clean and fresh, breakfast and snacks are delicious, and the bed is more comfortable than my bed at home! I would go back in a heartbeat! I also want to say as a female travelling alone, this place makes me feel much more safe and comfortable.than I would feel staying in Atlantic City.which is where I had to go for a business expo. The Carisbrooke Inn is my first choice any time I have to go back to AC!

My recent stay at the Carisbrooke Inn was short but pleasant. While the Inn is not in the newest, most modern condition, it is charming, with all of my needs addressed, and very friendly owners. I really enjoyed the house dogs and the breakfast was excellent. The only downfall was being woken up early by the roofers working on a nearby home. I would definitely stay at this Inn again.

My husband and I stayed at the Inn through Labor Day Weekend. I have stayed at the Carisbrooke Inn many many times and have stayed in some of the largest rooms but because we waited too long to book we stayed in a smaller room and found it to be adorable, clean, cool and on the first floor right next to the cookies (an added attraction). This room was definitely up to the usual standards that we have come to enjoy at the Carisbrooke. When we returned home I decided to get a new bed because our bed is not nearly as comfortable as the beds at the Carisbrooke. We spent some time sleeping on the deck this time around because the breeze from the ocean was so great after our long walks along the Boardwalk and back with some stops at the casinos. Glad we stayed at the Inn again and will definitely be back.
3,4 sur septembre 12, 2011
We stayed at the Carisbrooke Inn over the Labor Day weekend and we were generally very satisfied with our experience. The location is excellent, only a few hundred feet to the boardwalk. There a couple of decent restaurants right around the corner and a liquor store on the corner. The food at breakfast was very good. The room was clean and in good condition. The air conditioning, ceiling fan and flatscreen TV were all in good working order and much appreciated. The deck was a nice place to relax and read while enjoying the ocean breeze. The bed was probably the biggest disappoint for us. It was a bit small and too soft. The bathroom was also extremely small. The shower reminded me of a boat.
Réponse du propriétaire
Thank you for taking time to write a review. We are very happy you generally enjoyed your stay with us. I am also sorry you had some dissapointments. All of our beds are either queen or king sized. In the room you chose the bed is a queen. We do mention the bed size on our web site and this should have also been displayed if you booked online. If you used a 3rd party booking site we can not guarantee they will provide fully accurate descriptions. Beds are very personal things. I'm sorry you found this one too soft. Most guests find our beds extremely comfortable so we have kept this level of firmness based on customer feedback whenever we replace our beds. The bathroom in the room you stayed is very small. In these old houses when bathrooms were added sometimes they needed to economize on space. The shower is a standard sized stall shower for a home but I can see how it might feel smaller. We do have pictures of the bathrooms on our website so hopefully people are able to see they are smaller when they are booking. We do have several other room options with much larger bathrooms for people who need or desire more space. Again thank you for taking the time to write a review. We hope you will consider visiting us again and perhaps one of our larger rooms will be a better fit for you.

Never been to Atlantic City before, would love to return sometime. Only 2 miles south of casinos, 1 block from beach/boardwalk. Local neighborhood, bike rentals, restaurants. Loved Sid the dog (we are dog lovers). Excellent breakfast, cookies. Very comfortable bed. What more could you ask ? Rates were very reasonable. We highly recommend this place !!

Everything about the Carisbrooke was perfect. It was steps from the beach, which was quiet and serene; yet we could be in the middle of the AC nighlife within 10 minutes (a cab ride back was only $15 as well!) Our room was beautiful, extremely clean, and so comfortable. Breakfast was incredible. Could not have asked for anything more and we look forward to returning next year!

We recently spent a few days at the Carisbrooke Inn. The service was great, the room nice, the food was good, and the view from the deck was wonderful. Being off season, the rate easily fit into our budget. We got the lowest price room and the bathroom was very small, but the value and service given trumped the size of the bathroom. We would definitely go back to The Carisbrooke Inn.

We spent a wonderful five days at the Carisbrooke Inn. This was the first time at a B&B for us and hope to go back many more times. The room was very nice and had a spa bathroom.

The rooms are very clean, nicely decorated in a Victorian style and the beds are really comfortable. Mornings at The Carisbrooke are my favorite time, when you get a delicious breakfast. At my stay in August, 2010 for 3 days, I had french toast (Day 1),waffles (Day 2) and a spinach-feta cheese omelet (Day 3). Get away from the stress at home and spend a few days at the beach in Ventnor.

This is a wonderful place to stay for a relaxing vacation. Being able to sit on the beach during the day and walk the boards or travel to the casinos at night is great. The Inn is surrounded with a warm and friendly atmosphere serving a fantastic breakfast every morning and 5:00 p.m. snacks and drinks in the afternoon. The very friendly and hospitable staff make the Carisbrooke Inn a place to return time and time again. Jean Reinert

It seems this reviewer has stayed with us before and I am especially interested in better understanding why they felt the service has gone down since a prior visit. I hope the reviewer will contact me directly at the main e-mail for the inn and let me know specifically what made them think this. It is our goal to make every guest experience the best it can be. We certainly do not want to be unfriendly so if I or any of my staff presented themselves that way I am very sorry. I hope this guest will give us an opportunity to try again. Please contact us so we can fix this for you.

It was my first time at the Carisbrooke Inn. My partner and I were looking for a romantic place to stay in Atlantic City that was near the casinos but without being right in the middle of the hustle and bustle. We found that at the Carisbrooke Inn. The room (#9) was fantastic; wall of windows and and amazing bathroom with steam shower. Apart from the great room, what struck me the most was the amenities and service. There was full breakfast served, beach towels/chairs, drinks and snacks throughout the day, etc. The staff was courteous and went out of there way to make sure my stay was enjoyable. We booked a package (helicopter ride and dinner at Morton's with a personal driver) that topped of the weekend. I also enjoyed the atmosphere that was conducive to chatting with other guests. Meet some nice folk. The establishment was LGBT-friendly. The casinos were about a mile away; which was a nice walk on the boardwalk.

Our stay at the Carisbrooke Inn was absolutely AMAZING. We were there March 21st to the 23rd and we were completely blown away by the quality of the food, service and atmosphere. The bed we slept in was unbelievably comfortable, in fact twice we laid down to watch a little television before heading out on the town and BOTH times we were asleep instantly due to the comfort of the bed. The service was unbelievable. We were the only ones in the house as we decided to go midweek, and the staff was unobtrusive and yet readily available. Their dog Sid was such a joy as well. It rained pretty much the whole time we were there and thankfully they made sure we were equipped with an umbrella. We had the option of using a private back door entrance or the front door. Our room came equipped with a sitting porch where we took coffee in the early evening and relaxed. At 5 o'clock the cocktail hour with a very fine wine and amazing assortment of cheeses and vegetables was wonderful. And breakfast - there are no words to describe how incredible the fresh baked breads and homemade sausage were. What a wonderful way to start off the day! As we were there for our honeymoon, we hope to celebrate our anniversaries there as well!

The room was very nice with a partial view of the Ocean. There were always snacks and refreshments available. The breakfast of homemade blueberry pancakes and fruit cup were light yet filling enough to get us started in the morning. The hostess was extremely warm, friendly and helpful. Her recommendations of the local restaurants were precise. My advise is to stay away from the strip for dinner and enjoy the local offerings where you can enjoy a fabulous dinner while being in a warmer, friendlier atmosphere.

I was recommended to stay at the Carisbrooke and it exceeded my expectations. From the comfort and cleanliness of the charming rooms ( I stayed in Room 10 with a view of the Ocean) to the really excellent breakfasts, continual all-day supply of home made cookies, fruit, bottled water, plus the use of a fridge, microwave, small library, and porch. It all made for a really wonderful stay. The Happy Hour at 5pm allowed everyone the option to come back together and talk about their day. John the attentive and brilliant innkeeper (and his great hardworking staff) provided a hot snack, cheese,wine and soft drinks for this 'happy hour' and it was all wonderfully done. I can really highly recommend it. It sits next to the Ocean - and once you have stayed you will visit - as I will - again and again. Well done to the Carisbrooke. Thank you. Janet

On a windy night in the middle of May, we found refuge at this beautiful seashore inn. We were welcomed into the foyer and led to the large parlour for refreshments. With treats in hand, we chose to sit by the wall of windows and casually thumb through the selection of magazines and books. As the light faded, dinner became the topic. We could go toward the glitzy lights of the casinos, or head toward Margate and the restaurants there. Once settled back at the Carisbrooke Inn, we climbed to the third floor beautifully appointed room #9. Here, we had our own wall of windows from where we could watch the wind-tossed sea. Warm and cozy were we, protected from the wind and the rain. Our luxurious sleep was followed by a delicious breakfast of blueberry pancakes. So much effort has been put into blending the charm of the original house with modern conveniences, the effect is seamless. A special point must be made about the beautiful tiles and design of the steam shower in the private bathroom. We are happy to have been able to experience this lovely B&B when the weather was less than perfect, her attributes shone even without the sun.
