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

Stayed one night. Wallpaper falling off of wall and what appeared to be black mold all behind. Would rethink staying again. Desk operators were friendly. Room seemed wet and never seemed to get better with air conditioner operating. Grounds were clean. Not sure why a review must be 200 characters to say there was an issue but it is required... More

I am from Virginia Beach and come down a lot on the weekends. It is a great place to come if you enjoy fishing or just relaxing at the beach. These rooms are very clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. I would not think about staying anywhere else on Hatteras Island.

My husband and I come down to Hatteras very often. We usually stay up in Avon but the rates and quality of the motels up there are not even close to what you get by staying at the here. The quality was much better than any of the other motels we have stayed at on the island. The location is... More
