Stayed at this motel one night while visiting Cape Hatteras. Partially remodeled but old stained bathtub. Clean. Air conditioner did not work. Staff offered us another room but we were too tired to move. No breakfast.

This facility is in a great location. The staff during check-in was very friendly and helpful. She gave me a lot of advice about places to eat. She also told me a good place to fish. It turned out to be great advice because I caught fish all three days I was there. There is a bait shop and restaurant... More

This inn is a good value for the money. We went went there for the weekend just to chill out, swim and hang out at the beach, where you can also fish. Our room was clean and completely updated (new carpet, paint, bed linens, etc.) also included a microwave and a larger-than-expected fridge. The bed was very comfortable. The lobby... More

While taking a side trip on way back to Florida, my GPS had listed this as a Comfort Inn, and found out it wasn't . The staff was found to be quite friendly and helpful. We got a room near the office so we had Internet access. Others weren't so lucky.the room has been recently redecorated, and it has a... More

First, this is Hatteras Island - not Hilton Head. So the standard of hotels simply is different from other resort areas. This is a place for folks who want to be outside at the beach - surfing, swimming, fishing, flying kites or staring at the sea. Hotels need to be clean, have the basic amenities, and be able to stand... More

We spent one night here on our way down the Outer Banks. The lady at reception was friendly and helpful. She helped us with the ferry timetables and with restaurant selection. The room was clean and we had a pleasant stay. I would stay here again.

It's not a 5 star hotel but for the price it's nice. It's quiet and the staff are friendly. Room was clean and the bathroom was clean. Overall it's above its rated 2 star hotel rating. Enjoyed it. It's very close to the beach for those who wish to get up early and fish a little.

Room freshly decorated, but air conditioning unit's fan made loud constant noise (scrapping), TV was old style, bathtub refinish failing near drain, and door lock and exterior paint of door was questionable. Bed OK, but not great. Hotel is a 4 (rating, not stars) in some areas, and a 2 in others, so average a 3 in the rating. Part... More

The staff is really nice, friendly and helpful with offering suggestions. We had a double room and one of the beds had not been changed but it was quickly addressed. The room was excessively deodorized which made me wonder what was being covered up. We were there only 2 nights,so, it was fine for a short stay. If I were... More

We visited the weekend before Memorial Day, and it seemed that there was a big push to get everything in tip-top shape for the upcoming holiday weekend. Our room was clean, comfortable, & quiet, in spite of all the ongoing construction and renovation going on during our visit. The hotel is very conveniently located within walking distance of the beach,... More
