The most exciting thing about Carousel Resort Hotel & Condominiums is their world famous indoor ice-skating rink. If the kids are not into ice-skating, surely they will love the indoor and outdoor heated pools. Maybe your kids are the indoor type and would prefer to hang out in the arcade room? Either way, the Carousel seems to cover every base. They even have a third kiddie pool for the young ones. In addition to condominiums, every hotel room is equipped with a microwave, a compact refrigerator and a sink. You have the choice of an oceanfront view. There’s no need for an oven when you have a few restaurant choices downstairs. Kids get breakfast free, two each per one paying adult. The resort runs professional ice-skating shows and movies on the beach during the summer. Chincoteague Island is a short eight-mile drive away. Visiting this unique beach of wild horses is something you will not want to miss; however, there is plenty to do at the resort itself.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel May 17, 2019 thru May 19, 2019. By Saturday night the temperature in our room was down to 64 degree. They turn the heat off and ac on. Once this is done you cannot get heat. We were told to open the sliding glass door if it was warmer out side. We were finally provided a space heater. Unbelievable in 2019 in an upscale hotel which we paid over $200.00 a night for you can't get heat or ac when needed. Hotel is clean and lots to do for families but we wouldn't stay here again. The sign above the thermostat states to call for extra blankets. That doesn't help when taking a shower!
No liquid bath wash provided. Having a sink and counter in the room with ref and microwave is a nice touch but doesn't make up for the heating/ac conditions.
We stayed at the carousel for a last minute Mother’s Day getaway. Such a fun time was had. The kids bounced from the ice skating rink to the indoor pool. Beds were comfortable and we had a beautiful ocean front view from our balcony.
