Just returned from our third weeklong stay at OBX Motor Lodge. This is not a shiny new property, but rather vintage Outer Banks charm. The ground floor rooms walk out onto the beach, very few properties in all of the Outer Banks have such an unobstructed view and easy beach access. The staff is always cordial and accommodating. The clientele... More

I have stayed at this hotel since I was a young child - and there is nowhere else I would rather stay. Yes, the rooms are outdated and need some work...... However, we are out on the porch or down at the beach from before sunrise until after sunset. The beach is just right there! Our last visit was during... More

We spent 3 wonderful days at this hotel last week, and it was one of the BEST vacations I have ever had. First off, I would like to contradict the lady that wrote the only "Terrible" review for this hotel: us too traveled with 2 dogs, 1 medium and 1 small. We notified the hotel upon booking that we will... More

We had a change of plans and found ourselves needing to find a room for a same-day stay. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and worked with us to find the perfect room to fit our budget. The room and linens were spotless. Not only did everything look clean, it actually smelled fresh and clean, too! The room... More

One of the best locations on the beach, no dune in front. Older and not completely up to date, but in good repair and very clean. Nice pool area and play ground for kids. Staff very friendly. Easy walk to many good restaurants, pizza, and ice cream.

We stayed here 2 nights, as we were visiting friends. Other than the parking lot being tight and needing to parallel park, this was a good place. The only other complaint would be the other guests smoking out on the walkway outside the doors, but it didn't seem to seep into the rooms much. It was right on the beach,... More
