The Avon Motel is one of those "dirty little secrets" that folks who visit the Outer Banks regularly don't really want to share with outsiders. The motel has been privately owned by the same family for decades and is aimed at "just plain folks." Very popular with fishermen on weekends. Nothing fancy but inexpensive, close to good restaurants and shopping,... More

In preparing for our visit, we really felt like we did our due diligence and read up on the reviews for this place. The pictures on the website are very misleading. The pictures would have you think this is a quaint little seaside motel. Most of the reviews said not to expect much, that it was outdated. We are comfortable... More

There's not a lot of choices of motels on Hatteras Island. That said, this one is mediocre. It needs a lot of maintenance on the inside. Outside is ok looking. The Outer Banks "lodging" is catered more towards weekly condo rentals and it's hard to find one night lodging. The sheets were clean, beds were comfortable, a/c was noisy but... More

My family and I stayed in a cottage. We had a great experience the lady at the office was wonderful . She offered great information on breakfast and dinner. We can't wait to go back if your looking for a nice place to stay at a great price this is the spot for you.

To be honest I liked this hotel, you get your money worth, clean, close to the beach, local & enjoyable. It may not be luxury but its easy, cheap & convient. I was comfortable and I felt at home. The staff are amazing. I would chose this motell over any hotel in that area. It may not look appealing from... More

The room was certainly adequate for the night. There was a full-size refrigerator, queen size bed, flat screen TV, stove and oven, coffee maker, microwave, A/C, full bath and was just up a flight of stairs with a nice porch outside the door. The room was a very short distance from the Atlantic and easy to get to from the... More

This is the most simple hotel I have ever been. It is clean, no worries about that, but needs tons of renovations. The place is well located and accepts dogs, so that's Great. If they could change carpet for laminated it would be even better, specially if near the beach.
