Clean hotel for the most part, friendly staff, but I am hesitant to stay here again. The minute I opened the door to my room, the smell of mildew hit me. I gave myself time to adjust to the smell, laid down to take a nap after my long drive and day at the beach. When I woke up, I... More

We stayed at the Hatteras Marlin for one night. A lot of the rentals on Hatteras Island require a two night minimum, but the Hatteras Marlin did not. We stayed in room 13 which had a stove, sink and full size refrigerator. There are a lot of local fish shops nearby to get some fresh catch, if you like to... More

My husband, brother in law, daughter, and a couple of friends stayed here a couple of nights for some off shore fishing. My brother in law and husband shared a connecting room with my daughter and myself. It was no too bad, except the musty smell that caught me as soon as I opened the door. The beds were a... More

My husband and I rent a house in Hatteras every year with our families, but due some family issues, they were not able to make it, so we decided to come anyway for 5 days. We didn't get a big house since it was just the two of us and did some research and came across this little gem. The... More

We checked into room 15 anticipating a 4 night stay. Upon entering the room we were overcome by a pungent musty mildew stench. There was a small room deodorizer plugged into an outlet, so the cleaning staff was obviously aware of the issue. After unpacking we notice that the place was infested with hundreds of ants. Upon inquiring about this... More

We stayed here on a Friday night prior to staying in a week long rental from Midgett Realty (the same company that runs the Hatteras Marlin and seems to manage half of Hatteras). The room was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful (they let me stash a few small items in their office that I didn't want... More

We reserved and efficiency for 2 nights with no plans past that. We stayed in room 13. It was nice (not fancy) and the kitchen was very well equipped. After the 1st night we decided that we wanted to stay another 2 nights. Unfortunately our room was not available. However, they arranged for us to move to another room (32)... More

My in-laws (from Charlotte, NC) booked a room for a short weekend beach trip. The location is very close to the ferry docks (we wanted to go to Ocracoke one day) and also close to the grocery store and beach (but then again, I guess everything seems to be less than a mile away in Hatteras Village). Although we spent... More
