Cozy, clean , and cool!

  • 4 of 5

This place was very clean and comfortable. There was a small kitchen with everything I needed to prepare and enjoy meals. I didn't have to worry about crossing the 4-lane on foot or finding a very soon! place, cause this place is right on the beach! There are plenty of restaurants and nightclubs within walking distance. You can also walk down the beach to the pier and rent a rod and fish if your not into swimming. I look forward to making myself at home in the Carousel again

Cool, retro, and a 5 minute walk to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the Carousel. Great value, short walk to the beach, close to everything in St Pete, and Judy is fantastic! Small clean room, not fancy, but I didn't go to St Pete to hang out in my room. I will definitely stay there again.

Motel in Local Neighborhood-quaint, quiet, clean

  • 4 of 5

Pretty garden /lounge area at Carousel. Small and quaint, nothing fancy, lone motel in local neighborhood (surrounding condos, townhomes, hi-rise apartments). Friendly Tavern and Beachside Grille and gelato ice cream (walking distance) affordable, fresh food. Motel is affordable, clean, convenient, easy parking, walk to beach, drives to stores and restaurants. We would stay again, it's a hidden gem away from high volume traffic and tourism.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in an efficiency room with my two teenage girls. It was small, but it worked great for what we needed. I wanted to be by the beach, but didn't want to spend a fortune. This motel worked perfectly. It was just a two minute walk to the beach. The room was clean and had a nice kitchenette. We loved that beach chairs were provided and we used them each day we were there. Judy was quick responding to emails and worked with us on our late arrival. She was very friendly and talked to us each morning when she brought clean towels.

Most adorable little place to stay for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, neat and quiet! Tucked into a neighborhood, the Carousel Motel delivers a nice place to stay for vacation. The beach is a quick walk away. Beach chairs available. Nice restaurant just across the street that provides meals for any time of day. Bus service is very convenient the full length of 'Gulf Blvd.' Highly recommend for a month's stay or even just a week! Friendly owner and very accommodating.
