I have stayed here every year for the past 15 years. I love that I can walk to shop, fish and eat so that I do not have to deal with traffic. The rooms are great and clean!! I would stay no where else when in Kure Beach.

The motel was quiet and relaxing. The proximity to the beach was what we wanted. It is not a fancy franchise Hotel with new cushion top matresses or french-door refridgerator or a 32 inch flat screen tv. Goto Wilmington or Carolina Beach for that stuff. I wanted quiet and close to the beach for a reasonable price. It was clean... More

Great location and very romantic, but I will never, EVER go there again. I found the staff rude, dishonest and liars. $334 was an expensive lesson to learn about this place. If tripadvisor.com had a rating system less than 1, I would have chosen it.

I visited this hotel last year and I have been back a few times since. I love coming down and visiting with the owner and managers. They are very friendly and welcoming. This hotel is very relaxing and close to everything you need, restaurants, beach, peir, etc. This truly is "The Reel Kure" if you want some down time away... More

We stayed at this hotel toward the end of July, the description on the web-site was very accurate. I love how close to the ocean it was, very handy. We enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub each night and found it to be fairly quiet. The a/c was cold and the hotel rooms were clean (not as clean as... More

We just visited last week and were reminded how much we love the motel and staff. Always clean and kind. Not fancy but smaller and predictable which we love. We enjoy the efficiency where we can eat most meals in and yet have easy access to restaurants, Carolina Beach or bigger yet-Wilmington. We also enjoy the proximity to the beach,... More

Love Love Love this motel. It is small so you know about how many people will be staying there. If you have small kids, then you know how many people will be in the pool. The rooms are clean and that should be all that matters when you are at the beach. We have been staying here for about 17... 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! Come visit ... more   less
