What can I say...this place is convenient, clean, affordable, and is managed by friendly, helpful owners. Compared to a lot of places at the beach, the Sand Dollar will not break your wallet. The room was spotless, and contained all the essentials needed for a comfortable stay. The neighborhood is quiet, without an over-abundance of road or foot traffic. Restaurants... More

The best price/value relationship in the area just got better if you own a boat or jet ski. Rooms are always clean but the SSS Marina across the street is perfect, affordable, too, and inviting for a small boat or PWC. Going out later, call the Atlantic Beach Taxi for a cheap, round trip to and from the small, local... More

Just got home from Atlantic Beach, NC. Owners - Trish and Sam - are the best. It is always nice to be able to ask for information about restaurants, fishing etc. and get an answer that you can depend on. This motel is immaculate - can't wait to return. This is the place I would love to runaway to!

Stayed here this past weekend with my boyfriend. We were thoroughly pleased. No complaints. Everything was smooth upon check in. Tricia even stopped by once during our 3 night stay to see if we needed more towels. It's SUPER affordable and while it is not the ritz you are not paying ritz price. Better than what we expected.

I came down from NH on local business for a couple of days in mid September and the area was great, a bit mellow this time of year but the hotel is fine. A short walk to the beach, local amenities, food, bars, etc, all a short drive away(try Jack's in Beaufort)! The accommodations are simple but clean and affordable,... More
