After reading reviews and checking the local options I chose Darlings by the Sea for a relaxing time with my husband. The location is perfect. Steps to the beach and from several dining options. The room was spacious and comfortable. The balcony has a beautiful view of the sea. Love the large bathroom as well. We greatly enjoyed the snack... More

Rooms were more spacious than they appeared in the on-line photos we saw. I was also pleasantly suprised at the breakfast baskets. Along with regular breakfast goodies we had yogurt, fresh fruit and juice in the mini-fridge. Plus snacks for that evening like cookies and popcorn. We really enjoyed the private balcony looking out over the beach and ocean. It... More

I've been staying at Darlings By The Sea for every one of my visits to the NC coast for the past 5 or 6 years. The location is perfect....literally a few steps from the beach...each room with a great view. Great restaurants and bars nearby. Not too many people, either (hardly any folks on the beach each year i visit).... More

My wife and I stayed at Darlings for our second time the first week of August, Anita's birthday and our anniversary. As our first time, this was just a special week. The room was great, although getting a bit dated. Some minor painting and care needs to be done, but for us, it was not major enough to be distracting.... More

This is our fourth stay here. This time we stayed here for our wedding anniversary, and the experience couldn't have been better. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the entire property just has a flair for the romantic. Breakfast baskets are perfect, and the presence of the staff is unobtrusive but always available. Whirlpool tub makes for a relaxing time.... More

Everything was just right -- from the beautiful spacious room, extra large jacuzzi, plush bathrobes, to the yummy basket of goodies everyday that was more than plentiful for the both of us. Beautiful ocean view, and just a quick walk across the street to the extremely clean beach. Took advantage of the lovely bicycles. Hadn't ridden in years, but couldn't... More

Had a wonderful stay. The room and amenities were very good. Quite, clean and very peaceful. Nice view, good workout facility, good location. Best Air conditioning of any Hotel I have ever stayed in. I would and will come back for another stay.

Not sure which one ranks first on our list, a comfortable bed or an ocean front view, well we got both! Excellent stay, had everything we needed. Perfect location on the beach, life guard on duty, fishing pier, restaurants just a stroll down the boardwalk. Perfect!

This place was so relaxing and beautiful, we rarely drove the car. Excellent continental breakfast. Everything you need including peace and quiet... perfect for much needed R&R. We hope to return at least twice per year. Forget any negative reviews.....Merry and Steve
