Affordable, the furnishings are broken, dirty and very outdated, bed was newer, the chairs, and dining set very old.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.

My husband and I stay here when we go to the Outer Banks. The price is very reasonable considering you are right on the beach. There are various types of rooms available but the efficiency is nice to have if you will be there for several days. There is lots of places to eat and shop nearby. There is a... More

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
