Enjoyed getting to know Mark who is also the best story teller! He had me laughing with his sense of humor. The motel has great access to the beach, pier... More

My college buddy and I spent a long weekend after 35 years of mainly just catching up over lunches and went to the kure keys and had the best time. I have been many times and he loved his first visit and keeps talking about needing that "island attitude" again! Something about being there is just magical and so relaxing.... More

So many of our other guests now associate *you* with their pleasant, mellow visits, here......and that's a GREAT thing. Good folks make for fond memories!!!

We have family that live near Kure Beach we ask where should we stay. First place Kure Keys!! I know understand why. We have 3 kids, we had booked just a regular room to start with then we decided that we wanted to stay an extra night. At the last minute we called and ask David for a different room,... More

Thank you David and staff for another wonderful visit! We couldn't ask for a better place to stay, nor would we want one. There is other motels in proximity to the beach, but non can boast a pool and jacuzzi which are huge bonuses for the kids...and me! I look forward to many more visits in the future!

The price was a tad high for the quality of the rooms. The pool is small but the hot tub was great. and the distance to the pier was great! All in all I would stay again if I had too. It was a lot better when I was a kid I guess I was excited to be at the... More

KureKeys, Owner at Kure Keys Motel, responded to this review

:-) I am honestly surprised, and rather amused that you insist upon drawing such attention to yourself, as in your previous "review" (of the same stay) from July 14, 2014. Since the good folks at TripAdvisor seem unwilling, or unable to enforce their *own* guidelines forbidding multiple/repeated "reviews" of a single visit, I will respond. You are correct about one...

When looking for a place to stay in Kure Beach my first priority was a hot tub & that is how I found Kure Keys. Then I read the reviews. All the nice things people have said are so true. The owner, David, is so friendly, nice & funny. Jo Ann in housekeeping is a sweetheart & works so hard... More
