The staff was helpful and friendly when asked about the surrounding area. The room was spacious and spotless with comfortable bed and seating. The grounds were nice with enough parking for all. We did use the the pool it was obviously well maintained and landscaped. The value received for $ paid was excellent.

We loved our stay here. My wife and I were looking to "get away from it all" so we booked a weekend in Hatteras. Cape Pines Motel popped up because of it's high ratings, and it certainly lived up to them. We got a king efficiency, which was roomy and clean. We made a few meals in the kitchenette and... More

Definitely will be back. Everything was perfect and it was pet friendly as well. This was an impromptu vacation for my husband and myself. As innkeepers we are very in tune to what constitutes good accommodations and our only regret is that we could stay longer. The area had everything that we wanted. It would be wonderful to come back... More

A charming place to stay, convenient to everything on Hatteras Island with pleasant rooms, nice hosts and a range of room choices. Perfect in all ways from our perspective. Lovely small lobbies on upper floors, both inside and out. Grills for cooking outside, fish cleaning rooms for fishers.

This hotel certainly lives up to its reviews of being very clean! I was very impressed! (Most of the time I do find spots missed in other hotels/motels but not here.). Rooms were a good size. It had a charm to it mixing the older style with some contemporary looks. Would definitely recommend!

My husband and I and our two dogs have spent 3 nights at this motel - checking out tomorrow. We knew the moment we stepped into our room that we would be back. The motel is clean, cozy, dog friendly, and our room is not the run of the mill hotel type room. We are staying in the courtyard area... More

We traveled from Wilmington and it took two ferries to arrive. We were tired. The receptionist helped us call a restaurant that was open on New Years Day. The beds are low which I like. Decor is simple and has a wilderness feel to it. The only two down sides is the heat is loud and no microwave. But it... More

Clean and spacious room, friendly staff, and Heidi the skateboarding bulldog to greet us. Very short drive to the ferry landing, and good food within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.
