It's great to step outside & be on the sand! Nice little motel, could definitely use updating & the kitchen's are pretty small. Beds were comfy, shower head was just ok. We had loud neighbors that were up every morning at 6am so that wasn't fun. Expected more for the price but like I said, it was a fantastic location.... More

My family of four stayed here in Room 11 the week of July 4th and we'll definitely be back. The place had everything we needed - oceanfront, two bedrooms, and a full kitchen. The only thing I wish could change is the smoking policy. It's nearly impossible to enjoy sitting in the rocking chairs because of all the smokers staying... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice so far. We love everything about it! It's so clean, the pool is great, the beach out front is huge, and the staff goes above and beyond! We walked back into our room after coming back in from the beach and Letisha, our housekeeper, was so friendly! She let us know our... More

I read many reviews and kept going back and forth about staying here. I will say I was happy with the choice to reserve a room. Of course the other reviews are correct in regards to the decor. But if you can look beyond that you can see that it is a great place for the price and location. I... More

The location is great. all of the staff is friendly they have perfect beach access the pool is always clean although the accommodations are a little dated everything here is well maintained and if something is not to your liking they are pretty quick to try and resolve the issue

We just checked in and I must say I am pleased with the accommodations for the $100 per night. A bit outdated but clean, very clean. Right on the ocean with great access. The pool is kept in great condition. There is a bit of an "old motel" smell but that is to be expected for a older establishment

Couldn't be happier with this motel! Affordable and close access to the beach. Staff is excellent and goes above and beyond! Will definitely be back!! We had to extend our vacation due to car issues and the staff was more than understanding with all the issues and truly care about their guests!!

Affordable, the furnishings are broken, dirty and very outdated, bed was newer, the chairs, and dining set very old. Spacious 2nd floor room, full kitchen, could easily stay there for a week. Lovely rocking chairs on the porch, great view. Several restaurants within walking distance. The remote control in our room didn't work properly, unable to obtain the guide, mute,... More

On our recent trip to Busch Gardens Virginia, we decided to travel past our destination to spend a night at this little motel located right on the Outer Banks beach in KiIll Devil Hills North Carolina NC. Friends of ours had stayed here and there was no denying the wonderful view and location for a relaxing beach retreat. The motel... More

This hotel is located right on the beach. The interior needs to be renovated, but it is by no means a deal breaker. The pool is nice and medium sized. Hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. Parking was troublesome.
