The downside was the mattress was very hard and made for an few nights of uncomfortable sleep. The parking lot is a bit far, but it is worth the tradeoff for the location. On the upside, location, location, location! You are steps from the beach and shopping. The food was outstanding at the mad batter and the included breakfast added great value.

i have enjoyed this B&B since '79. It's location is ideal for beach and shopping. The attached restaurant is casual upscale in food prep & presentation. Their complimentary ($30) breakfast for tenants at the Mad Batter is a great, tasty deal. Many rooms are small so viewing them on line before reserving is a must. The service was exemplary from the frt desk to the bartender at Happy Hour next door.
We thank you for taking the time to write a review and we especially appreciate your continued patronage. Have a wonderful summer from all of us at the CV and the MB.

Darling room with cozy ambience. Our front corner room #13 had a peek a boo view of the ocean too! Staff was very nice and the restaurant, The Mad Batter, was excellent! Location was prefect. An easy short walk to the beach or shopping and restaurants etc etc. No on site parking. Free parking is provided But it is a 7 minute walk from the hotel. We thought this would be very inconvenient but was actually fine as everything we wanted was so close. We would be happy to stay again in future.
Its good to know that you enjoyed both the hotel and the restaurant. Thank you for mentioning that the parking actually works out quite nicely given our proximity to everything. Have a great summer and we look forward to your return.

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast. It is located 1/2 a block from the beach and room #4 has a side view of the ocean. The room was large and the bed very comfortable. You get a 30% off dinner coupon for the Mad Batter restaurant which is directly below the hotel and $15.00 voucher per person to use towards breakfast or lunch. There is no set time for breakfast which I liked that you could go anytime. The food at the restaurant was very good and large portions. Overall I would go back again soon.

Room 28 was nice. The ocean view was great. It wasn't cleaned very well from the last guest though. There were some crayons on the ground and the bedside tables weren't wiped off very well; I assume someone with kids was in before us. But I'm also a germ-a-phobe and every time I visit a hotel room, I bring Clorox wipes with me to go over the high-touch surfaces once again. So, if you're not persnickety regarding cleanliness (like me), it should be fine for you. It was nice that we got vouchers for the Mad Batter; that restaurant is phenomenal! Everyone was very nice.
We are glad that you ultimately had a good time and enjoyed the ocean and our restaurant as well but are sorry for the apparent hasty cleaning of the bedside tables and the errant crayons. Please accept our apologies and we promise to do better next time. Thank you for your review.

No big surprises besides the breakfast. The old Victorian villa beautiful to look at but not really comfortable inside, especially for second floor guests

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Carroll Villa. Our package was wonderful and the food at the Mad Batter was incredible. Our only complaint was that we don't like footboards on beds because my husband is tall. We would have enjoyed more opportunities to talk to other guests at breakfast but understand that the restaurant's design doesn't lend itself to this.
We are glad to know that you enjoyed your getaway package and your stay. We appreciate your nice complements very much. For future reference, please know that quite a few of our rooms do have beds without footboards such as 16, 21and 25. We hope you will stay with us again sometime. Thank you for your nice review from all of us at the Carroll Villa and the Mad Batter.
