We couldn't love this place more our second summer coming down and seeing David and the staff.again was awesome. It's amazing to come to a place and see the same faces that also remember you and your family :) this is the cleanest place to stay always quiet and comfortable. They are the most hospitable and caring staff who goes... More

This place is a gem. It is clean (No bugs spotted even when I looked). The place is well kept. The pool and hot tub and clean with plenty of seating. It is walking distance to everything in Kure. Right across the side street from the beach, along the board walk. I couldn't have asked for a better trip. If... More

My family and I stayed at the KureKeys every year for the last seven years. Some years we have visited more than once during the season. David Tripp and his staff have always been consistent and one thing, customer service and satisfaction. I was diagnosed with cancer of the larynx in January. From the moment my condition became known to... More

Our first time staying, was the most wonderful experience I could ask for. I felt like I was with family. This place WAS our home for six days. The owner and staff were my kindred spirits.

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

Yes, as our rooms open directly to the outdoors, someone leaving food and trash strewn about, repeatedly, day after day will likely attract bugs. We cleaned up after you constantly, indoors and out (even the fireworks and debris left by your children!), but you were a most challenging group, in terms of cleanliness and common courtesy. Your expectations that I... More

Most motels already have a bad rep but for this one. It was extremely clean, no bugs, very friendly owner, pretty much on the beach & and very affordable. I will most definitely stay there the next time I go back

Thanks, so much, for your encouragement! We really strive to please our guests, as that's truly why we're here. I swear, if I could turn the building to face directly toward the ocean, and move it just a bit closer.....I WOULD! ;-) . Hope to see you again, soon! More

LOL......that'll teach you to "stray" ;-) . So sorry for your family's less-than-great experience down in Myrtle. We're always awaiting your return to the "Reel Kure", here at the Kure Keys. It is always a pleasure to be your host, here on Pleasure Island! More

Im sure all the other reviews you see here are written by the workets or the owners because after staying there..they seem laughable. All that was available was a "suite" which consisted of 2 queen beds and a studio kitchen. They charged a extra 10 dollars to the rate because they considered my 2 yr old child an Extra person!!!!...

Ouch! ;-) Your opinions remind me that, perhaps despite our best efforts, we simply won't be able to please everyone. It seems apparent that our older, little limited service motel is not what you desired. I wonder, though, why you feel so driven to disparage the opinions of so many others? Please at least be honest about the one issue... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small, family-owned and operated oceanside motel. (Not oceanfront). Just 100 feet from the beach and boardwalk in Kure Beach, NC, our rooms face parallel with the beach, so you must step out of your room for the ocean view. We have no "ocean view" rooms, though the public deck/porch on the ocean side of our building affords an excellent view of the beach, ocean, and magnificent sunrises!NO PETS : please don't ask if we're "pet friendly". We absolutely *love* pets (have some at home), but they are not allowed at our motel. It is really not a matter of "friendliness" :-)We have no designated "non-smoking" rooms. For those guests requesting non-smoking accommodations, in advance, we aggressively sanitize and deodorize our rooms with a *very* effective ozone generator. Our guests are nearly always *very* pleased with the results!We have a large grill available, a coin laundry, fish cleaning facility, and more than ample parking. There's even room for your boat, under 23'. With two "extra-long" double beds, all of our rooms can accommodate four guests rather comfortably. A small rollaway cot/bed is available for a fifth guest, but there can be no more than five people occupying a room, regardless of ages/sizes. We have excellent quality linens,flat screen TVs, and free WiFi! Outdoor jacuzzi! Plenty of free ice (can you believe that so many places *charge* you for ice?!), a convenience store just across the street with bait and tackle, beach supplies, etc. Yes, we *really* will inflate your water toys for you!
