Stayed 3 nights in mid-October. For the price, you can't beat this place. Some call it "dated", we call it "charming". It wouldn't be charming if it wasn't so very clean. We stayed in unit #28. Room was very spacious. Yes some things are dated, but we didn't want to pay the $350 a night charge at the Hilton. Love... More

Upon arriving, there was no wifi available even though I emailed the day before and was informed that there was wifi. (I emailed because TripAdvisor says the Outer Banks Motor Lodge has wifi, but the lodge's website does not mention it.) The wifi apparently had not worked for quite some time, according to the front desk clerk. When I told... More

This was the perfect stay. We had an oceanfront room, first floor. The room was an efficiency--clean and well stocked with dishes and the blankets were warm (late October--18-20th). Beds were comfortable. Room was cozy and pleasant. Yes--the oceanfront rooms are directly on the beach and you can see the ocean from your window or sit outside of your room... More

I have to start off by saying, I LOVED IT, but not at first. My first step down into our room my heart sank. My best friend and I were celebrating her retirement and my 50th birthday. The weather was foggy and rainy, cool and blah. I was hoping for the sun to be shinning, the sky to be blue... More

Tool my wife, daughter and dog for a long weekend. Got there at 11:30 on Oct 4 and we were able to check in right away. We were in a pet friendly room 43 right behind the office.

We booked two nights here based on reviews and pictures. A few of the photos looked like they might have been from the pool view area which we were in, but they sure didn't look like either of the rooms we were in. Our first room, number 31 was in one word "nasty". Upon entering, the smell of what I... More

We stayed here based on the reviews and price point however we were still leary due to the price being well over $100 cheaper then the competors in the area. We took a chance and we are glad we did. We now know why the reviews were good, friendly staff, clean room and reasonable rates. Do not come here expecting... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night on the OBX so we would have access to the islands here (Duck, Corolla, Kill Devil Hills, etc.) before heading to the ferry for a few days on Ocracoke. The hotel was clean ,comfortable, and very close to the beach. The only complaints we had were there were no blankets (the night... More
