We stayed there after the Owen ' s Motel canceled our booking and told us they were full. We needed a clean place to stay the night and stumbled upon the Ebb Tide. The owner's and manager could not have been nicer! The room was not fancy but it was clean and the bed was comfortable. The motel was right... More

I am very picky about hotels. I practically never stay in hotels without at least three stars. I found Ebb tide last min when everything else was sold out. I loved it there. Room/bathroom was clean. Location is beautiful. Very cozy and relaxed getaway.

Let me say I am not picky about motels/hotels as long as it's clean. Well this place was a dump. The floor was filthy, the room smelled awful, there was crumbs of marijuana on my bed, cobwebs everywhere, my kids didn't even want to lay in the bed. I had to skim the pool before the kids got in bc... More

I was luckily able to look at the room before I rented it and saved myself the horror of staying here. I don't look for anything fancy at a beach hotel. Just a clean shower and decent bed. This didn't appear to have either. I've never seen a mattress so sagged in the middle and the bathroom wasn't what I... More

First, I have been going to this place since high school. I am now in my upper 30's and have been pretty loyal to the place. I don't need fancy and the price has always been right. I knew the rooms were small, I knew the TV was small, I knew exactly what I was paying for. A couple years... More

Found this place to be an excellent value especially for anyone on a budget. The room was nice and spacious as well as clean. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant next door has a wonderful breakfast. Will be coming back on another surfing trip soon and will definitely be recommending to my friends!

We absolutely love the Outer Banks and will be returning to Ebb Tide Motel very soon! Very friendly staff, clean rooms, excellent rates and a wonderful restaurant just footsteps away! Not to mention just yards away from the ocean!

I stayed there with my family, there was mold in the room it looked like the ceiling was leaking. The beds have to be about as old as the building they are horrible, the pillows have stains all over them. The sheets had black hairs on them, The tv's volume would go up and down. Not even to mention that... More
