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

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

Motel was clean. Staff was nice and friendly. Close to all that Kure Beach has to offer. We had a great visit. Will stay there again. Love Kure Beach, small family style beach. Restaurants are near and you can walk to all.
