I got a arm welcom even if I showed up very early in the morning. Easy access to the beach. Very clean. I felt confortable. Beach front room well worth the cost. Réception was very helpfull and patient. Close to the pier and restaurants. Nice pool. Quiet. Full kitchen.

Friendly service at the front desk to housekeeping. Only complaint is that the housekeeping staff smoking on the balconies and stairways; as well as neighboring rooms smoking on balconies; wish this place... More

We first stayed here Memorial day weekend 2011 as we were moving to Raleigh and closing on a house the following Tuesday. Fell immediately in love with the place. Our kids (16,6,5) loved it too. It's not fancy, but it is much better than you should expect for the price. We come to Kure to enjoy the beach not park... More

Cute and quaint mom and pop motel with direct access to the ocean. Only problem was lack of hot water for nightly showers but was repaired for morning shower next day. The room was recently renovated with a full kitchen. We didn't have a reservation but all the motels in the area were pretty empty as this is before the... More

Right on the beach, nice pool, can walk to lunch/dinner, etc. Love this hotel. Staff has always been accommodating and friendly. Parking is great and we feel secure with being able to see our vehicle in the parking lot. Anytime we go to Kure, this is our go to motel.

Cute little place right on the beach! Looks like they recently updated the room we were in #222. The beds in our room were different heights, one was probably a foot higher than the other. Great views from the 2nd floor. Fridge was spotless. Pool Cleaning company came every day. Housekeeping will not make your bed if you leave anything... More
