I am very particular and this motel surpassed my expectations. It is very comfortable and convenient to use as a base while meandering up and down that part of the gorgeous NC coastline. This place hearkens back to the golden age of motels.

We stayed for the long weekend and found that the owner was more than gracious. We only spent the nights in our room and though it was very small it had everything we needed and was one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed. We will go back many times again.

We use to stay here in the 70's when it was Bear Lodge, so glad it is still operating. I can tell a... More

Grabbed a last minute reservation here on Memorial Day Weekend and glad we did. This hotel is just over the bridge from Swansboro, so away from the crush of the busier parts of this area. But it is perfectly located on the intercoastal waterway. You can dock a boat right at the hotel, or launch a kayak (your own or... More

Stopped here on an intracoatal waterway trip though NC after reading great Trip Advisor reviews. This is the find of the waterway. Docked just steps from the room. Dave supplied us charcoal and we used the grill by the water as we watched the sunset. Rooms are immaculate! We enjoyed meeting Dave and Kay. So nice to patronize a family... More
