Motel was pet freindly and the rooms were clean, but the motel over-all could use a good updating. The price that we paid for one night was very high, but we were stuck as we had a dog with us and pet friendly places are very hard to find on the Outer Banks.

Thanks for the your review, Phyllis -- we're sure other users will appreciate the tips. We actually do have hair dryers available at the front desk for guest use, so we would have been more than happy to let you borrow one. It sounds like you had a relaxing time with us, and we're thrilled to hear it! We look... More

Stayed one night on our way to Ocracoke. Could have stay longer. Not fancy. Clean spacious rooms, a very good value, friendly staff. Great location. Nice pool. Close to the Orange Blossom bakery which is a must visit.

Nice clean simple rooms, friendly staff. Ours had a small fridge, but no microwave or coffee maker. The air conditioner didn't get very cold, we like it cool at night to sleep and we all ended up on top of the covers or with just a sheet. There is a lot within walking distance, including a grocery store right across... More

It sounds like you had a nice stay with us, Amanda, so we're glad to hear it. It's certainly tough to keep things very cold during the summer heat, but we hope you were able to sleep well. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you're visiting from Virginia. All the best, Angie & Bill R.- Owners More

We were greeted as we arrived by Mary , she was so friendly. A hassle free check in. The room was large with an ample kitchen for a family of 4. We were able to bring our dogs as well. They cater to dogs as there is a large fenced in area for them to run of their leash. Our... More

We needed a place to stay for two nights with our dog while we explored Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Our room was spotless, smelled good, had charming wood furniture and a mini-fridge, and had windows that opened(!). The staff were friendly and informative about restaurants, and the motel has a nice, large fenced-in area in the back for your dog...... More

We decided on the Cape Pines Motel as a base to see something of the Outer Banks during a road trip around the Carolinas: it proved to be a good decision. How good to find a motel that concentrates on its central purpose! Our room was large, comfortable, and clean and the welcome from all concerned was generous and helpful.... More

It's great to hear that you felt right at home with us, Ginny. You might be surprised, but Chuck isn't actually married to Mary. In fact, their not the owners -- we are! You actually met Bill -- he was the nice guy at the pool! The confusion's understandable -- Bill's always dirty from fixing things and Chuck's quite polished,... More

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.
