My husband I took a day trip to the Outer Banks and we happened to find this quaint little gem during the Labor Day Weekend. This is a small little motel with no thrills BUT, it is very clean and quiet. It is about 2 blockes from an excellent resturant called Jolly Roger. You are right across the street from... More

This place carried me back to the mom and pop places I used to go to with my parents long before the larger chain hotels were around...at least in most places outside of major cities.

I stayed at the Driftin' Sands for 3 days in July with my husband and 2 girlfriends while we were in town for a wedding. We got the 8 person "cottage." The "cottage" is very much like a 3-bedroom apartment. It's complete with 4 double beds, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen with basic equipment (full-sized fridge, coffeemaker, stove) and a living... More

DIManagement, Director of Sales at Driftin' Sands Motel, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our Driftin Sands Motel on the Outer Banks. The house that you stayed in was the original owner's home when they operated the Driftin' Sands themselves (and before it was bought a long time ago). Everything at the Driftin Sands was gutted in the winter of 2003 and was... More
