Charming Inn. Exceeded the enjoyment I experienced in the Great Britian Bed & Breakfast establishments I visited. No request went unsatisfied. Nice location. My pleasure to visit again soon.


such a gem!!

From the wine and cheese to the well-appointed room to the sumptuous breakfast to the location to the exceptional staff ..... it's a wonderful, wonderful getaway!


Cozy B&B in AC

4.6 on September 23, 2016

We only stayed for 1 night, so the room we stayed in across the street from the main building was fine for one night. It was bright and clean and had a TV, desk and extra comfy chair to sit in. The bathroom was very small, but again, for 1 night it was fine. The only real drawback was there was no view out of the 3 nice windows other than the back / side of other buildings, so we couldn't really open the blinds. The people were nice, the happy hour from 5- 6 was really nice, and breakfast was over the top wonderful. We would definitely stay there again, but in a different room.


highly recommend Carisbrooke!

Great Stay!

The wife and I went to the Carisbrooke Inn for a shore getaway and worked out great. The proximity to the boardwalk and beach is awesome. The fact that they provide beach chairs is also a bonus. Breakfast was delicious - particularly the pancakes. We were treated well and would come back again. A great spot right by the beach!


Lovely

We stayed in the main building and absolutely adore this place. Like staying at Grandmas house with real wood floors/furniture. The bed was thick and luxurious. Just because breakfast was included did not mean it was limited or skimpy. It came so fast we joked that it was brought in from a diner! We kept peeking in the Main room because we would find treats at all hours. Steps from the boardwalk and less than 5min away from the Jitney that serves all casinos. That pretty much makes this our go-to place for every A/C escape from now on!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and I am glad our entire staff at the inn was able to provide you a great experience. We look forward to seeing you again.


Best Inn in Ventnor NJ

5 on August 07, 2015

My first stay at the Inn exceeded my expectations. It begins with the comfort of the bed, the shower head in the bathroom; the delicious breakfast, cookies, fruit, delightful happy hour, and the wonderful people we chatted with during those times. The beach was just steps away once you picked up your beach chair and towel. I will definitely visit the Inn again and recommend it to others. We consider ourselves lucky for finding this Inn.


A NICE PLACE TO STAY !

4.0 on June 10, 2015

A great get away place, but still close enough to the plays etc. at the nearby casino.


Very relaxing and Comfy

4.8 on February 18, 2015

This B&B was very warm & inviting. The interior decor was comforting. The room was clean, bed was comfy but bathroom very small yet manageable. The owners where helpful & hospitable. The breakfast was excellent as was the refreshments & snacks. The japaneses restaurant "Magu" which was around the corner in walking distance was excellent! Even tho it was 16 degress we walked to beach which was less than a block from Inn. Over all we rate Carisbrooke Inn an A+ and look forward to staying there again in the near future. Ed & Jan from Philly ;)

Innkeeper Response
Ed and Jan, Thank you for taking time to write a review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us. I'm sorry for the extremely cold weather. It has been a chilly one this year. We know some of our bathrooms are quite small. As with many B&B's in older buildings they were added to the rooms and are functional but small. Perhaps the next time you come, you can ask when you call about some of our rooms with larger bathrooms. About half have large roomy bathrooms, some with spa amenities. Again thank you and we look forward to your next visit with us.


More than just a B&B

5 on December 26, 2014

Carisbrooke Inn is more than just a B&B. In December the Atlantic City Ballet was in search of hotels to donate rooms to them for the orchestra that was playing for their production of The Nutcracker. Without hesitation, John and his partner, donated 6 rooms to the Ballet! They were extremely accommodating to the musicians who stayed there and followed up to make sure the ballet didn't need anything else. The Atlantic City Ballet can't thank them enough!!! The musicians were very pleased with the rooms and were made to feel right at home. Staying here means you support businesses that support their community

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for writing such a nice review. I have to say this was such a positive experience for us as well. We really do try to support community events whenever we can, and especially the arts. I believe the arts enrich us locally but also provide a vital attraction for our guests. I think it is important for the local communities and the local businesses to do what they can. On a separate note, I had never been to a ballet before in my life and this was the perfect opportunity to go. I had no idea I would enjoy it so much. The skill of this group is nothing short of amazing. Thank you for the opportunity.
