After a snafu with a rental house in Salvo and no place to stay for a week, nine hours from home, we called Cape Pines in a panic at 5:30 on a Saturday night. To our surprise (and initially, trepidation), they had accommodations for the week for us and our dog.They even offered to hold the room for us so... More

This was our 5th visit here and again we had a wonderful time. We stayed in a different pet friendly room than the room we usually like but that was our fault for calling last minute. There are 12 courtyard pet friendly rooms, efficiencies and suites that are all steps away from one of the most beautiful pools on the... More

Very well kept, clean and cottage-like. This is a throwback to another time, nice change of pace. My family of 6 stayed here and one of the rooms had a full kitchen, the other a kitchenette. It is pet friendly, floors were knotty pine. I am accustomed to 5 star hotels and found Bill's place to be a pleasant surprise... More

We stayed at the Cape Pines Motel in July for three days to extend our vacation by a few days and we loved it!!! Cape Pines is very clean, it is in a great area, close to the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and to the beach. A short drive into Avon for the Avon Fishing Pier, and a very short walk... More

This is a Very Clean and well taken care of motel. They are pet friendly and in a great area very covenant to the outer-banks and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. I would definitely stay here again if in the area. I always try yo give bussines to locally run establishments.

Facts are: Owners are rude. A/C doesn't work - room too hot. Shower water is either hot or mostly cold. Bugs in room - I have pics. TV is tiny & you couldn't hear it. Wi-fi doesn't work well. Not accessible to the Beach or Sound. Grill & picnic table are located where the dogs poop!!! 2nd floor balcony looks... More

It's unfortunate when a family is having a wonderful vacation until the parents are held liable for actually paying the hotel bill, then everything is "just awful". As explained at length, when a 5-Night Special rate for 2 persons is booked, it is not acceptable to bring a family of 5 (FIVE) for the same discounted price. You were clearly... More

I chose this place based on other trip advisor reviews, and I am so glad that I did. Everyone working here, from front desk to cleaning staff, was very welcoming. Room was extremely clean, and location was great for exploring all of lower outer banks.

We had a great trip to the OBX, and we are so glad we stayed at Cape Pines. We wanted to take our dog with us, and it's really hard to find places that allow that. Cape Pines was extremely pet friendly, and it was nice to chat with other vacationers and their pups. The room was clean and large,... More
