This is our forth time staying here out of five stays to OBX. We enjoy the location, value, and cleanliness of this motel. There are no frills, so as long as you aren't expecting more, you'll be happy. The rooms are small with a mini fridge and microwave (no coffee pots). There is daily maid service with fresh clean towels... More

We stayed here for a week in an oceanfront room. The best thing is that the door opens right onto the beach which is very hard to find, especially for this price. The rooms are small. The bathrooms are tiny. Ours smelled a little moldy and the shower and toilet could both use replacing. We saw a giant bug but... More

Just got home from another amazing Outer Banks getaway and a stay at our favorite motel. My husband has been staying at the Beacon for 50 years! Robin and her amazing team always make us and their other guests feel like family. Our oceanfront room was perfect. Beautiful patio with ample tables and chairs to sit and relax watching the... More

My family stays there every year (4 families) for the past 12 years and other family members have been staying for 5 years. This was our first year. What was most enjoyable was being with my family. Pros: Good Maid service. Beach is 20 feet away. Quiet at night. Cons: WIFI is IFFY and they advertise they have it well... More

On a last minute notice, we decided to head for the beach July 3-5. Everything was full, as we called the morning of July3. Wanting to stay on the ocean front was priority. The Beacon had a regular room and an efficiency available. We stayed in the efficiency pool side. We could walk out on the balcony and see the... More

Had an Ocean front room, best view and access to the beach in the entire area. Staff is friendly and hard working. Grounds and maintenance people keep the grounds spotless, and the room service lady had our room spotless as well. Enjoyed our stay at the Beacon motor lodge , and would go again.
