A typical Outer Banks, NC motel. The poolside single room was quite small, but I would imagine the other rooms are bigger. The rooms are not particularly clean, but not really dirty or gross. The location right on the beach is perfect and not far from bars and restaurants. The shower was good and the staff was friendly. If you... More

This is my third review on the Outer Banks Motor Lodge. My husband and I absolutely love it and will never stay anywhere else when we're in OBX. The room is always clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. The washing machine and dryer are now coin operated, but at $1.50 for wash and $1.00 for drying it's more... More

We stayed at OBX Motor Lodge on our way to Ocracoke. We had a wonderful pet friendly room. While it was not "luxurious" it was spotless and clean with a designated parking spot less than ten feet from the door of our room. This place is a retro gem to old school hotels and it is right on the beach,... More

This is an old fashioned style motel with a great location. They also allow pets and we had a room just behind the office which was spacious and clean. Nothing fancy. A nice clean pool with picnic tables and grills. Some of the rooms open up directly to the beach. A lot of families.

We decided at the last minute to drive to Outer banks from Myrtle Beach. Had no reservations and stopped here to check on availability. We were pleasantly surprised super clean rooms and very friendly staff. Right on the beach and close to shops and restaurant.

This was our second stay at the Motor Lodge. We chose to stay again based on our first visit. In my previous review, I called the place dated when I should have said it has a Retro feel. My family loves the experience of staying at such a charming place. The Motor Lodge is extremely clean. The staff is extremely... More

To be clear, we chose the Outer Banks Motor Lodge primarily due to its attractive price point for a motel right on the ocean. We also liked that it was a small family run motel rather than a chain and that the rooms seemed like a good value compared to the chains. Our King Efficiency room was spacious but had... More

Have always enjoyed our stays here! Cannot beat the view of the ocean! Would like to see a few upgrades to the efficiencies, very few utensils and the stove eyes were unlevel due to so much aluminum foil on them. Will still continue to stay here, staff is always cordial & helpful!

We spent a long weekend in pet-friendly efficiency #40. The room was big, with tile floors that are perfect when traveling with a dog. The best feature of this room is the private porch overlooking the swimming pool. The ocean access is amazing. The property is cute; old, but well maintained. But we did have a couple of complaints. The... More

By all means, DO IT!!! Stay at this property whenever you visit the Outer Banks, especially if you prefer the motor lodge experience as opposed to the hotel chain groove. Over the past 20+ years, my wife and I have stayed at a property near MP 10 on the Beach Road, but they closed at the beginning of the year.... More
