The motel style entryways are thoughtfully supplied with rockers to watch the surf with ashtrays. Unfortunately the smokers fill this area from dawn till dusk making it unusable for non-smokers. This is my first visit to North Carolina and it appears you are handed a pack of Camels as you cross the border. Since the windows face this area you... More

Stayed here two nights before going to our big house! Although minimal furnishings, this place is great! Clean, comfortable with a pool and view to die for! Price was awesome, included a full size fridge, stove and coffee pot. Would easily stay for a week long getaway, knowing to take an electric fry pan and some other basic essentials. If... More

Enjoyed a stay at this motel for two nights on 9/21-9/22. I visited OBX to fish and found this to be a perfect place to stay and plan to return. I fished the surf only once and did not catch a fish but I spoke to another guest who had success so I hope to return and try again.

This Lodge was just perfect for our trip. Location was great. We had an oceanfront suite on the second level and the view was great. The Outer Banks Motor Lodge is very typical of some of the older establishments from years ago. Location is right on the beach!! It is under new management and they are making improvements. The staff... More

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
