Love the way the cabins are right on the beach. Not the owners fault that land has eroded over time. We love that we are right there and can enjoy the waves at high tide. Motel is older, but clean. We enjoy the feeling of stepping back in time to the 1950's or 1960's. The whole town is laid back... More

Every year for the past 8 years we have stayed in either cottage 107 or 108. Someone who stays there every year and we've become friends with posted this link on their Facebook page. It's dated March 14, 2014. (See at the end of review) The beach is completely gone and water and waves come up under the cottages. The... More

Been visiting Carol at the motel for about 12 years now. I'm not much of a Myrtle Beach kind of guy and have a black lab that likes to just enjoy the beach. If you are looking for a relaxing, get away from it all and have that old style Cape Hatteras, live on a sand bar experience, the Outer... More

The cottage smelled of mold and mildew. There were cock roaches everywhere. We lost power twice. I called them and wanted a refund because of my job I have to remain in constant contact and they stated it wasn't their fault (act of God) and would not return my funds. They charged an extra 3% fee for non-cash, which I... More

We stayed in cabin 107. Talk about being ocean front!!! There was a nor'easter and we were in the ocean. My husband and others fished from the deck of the cabins. It was the perfect cabin to enjoy the ocean and the village. It was decorated cute. It was spotless clean!! I think the owners were a bit grumpy. They... More

Carol Dillon, the owner told us we could park our second car behind our beach cottage #108 for the first week another couple stayed with us. The second night there the night person on duty placed a tow warning on their car. I spoke with him and he said either move it or pay for the tow that he was... More

They say they are Pet Friendly, but let your Dog bark for a minute, and you will see how Unfriendly they are! Don't stay here if you have a pet. They have certain room that allow dogs, but instead of putting people who just have dogs in that area they book their regular guest with the dog rooms and then... More

We stayed in room 5A in November 2012 right after Hurricane Sandy. While most of the restaurants and businesses were closed we still had a wonderful vacation. The Outer Banks Motel is walking distance to restaurants and is literally located right on the beach! The rooms are not the fanciest but they are clean and comfortable. Our room was equipped... More

My wife and I literally stumbled into this motel after a bad outer banks campsite experience. We found the accommodations and staff to be excellent. The staff that night went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and got settled in. We rented an efficiency and were spoiled for four days. This is literally steps... More

We have stayed in Avon on previous vacation week for the last 3 years. I did like Avon but wanted something closer to the beach and a nice room with out breaking the bank. After searching on the websites for different villages on Hatteras I came across the Outer Banks Motel. I read reviews and was pleased with all the... More
