We stayed in an oceanfront efficiency room in May 2015 for the weekend. Everything seemed to be pretty clean. It was just me and my husband so we had plenty of room. The bathroom shower was surprisingly large as well. We had a king size bed and it seemed to sleep rather well. I loved just opening the back door... More

The room was musty smelling. Turning on the a/c did not help. The smell was overwhelming when you entered the room. At $69, it had direct access to the beach across the street, BUT many guests partied in area directly in front of the rooms during the day and night. I had never seen such a sight. In the morning,...

This is an older hotel with a number of options and prices for its various rooms. We opted for the beach view housekeeping room. The view is what you pay for, because the whole complex has seen better days. Our room had no dishcloths, no shampoo, no basic condiments like salt and pepper... things that you would expect in a...

I booked a room through Trip Advisor as I have many many times before without a problem. I received a confirmation email and a few days later another email saying that there was another room available at a cheaper rate so we took advantage of the savings. We received an email confirming this with a new confirmation#. Imagine our surprise... More

My girls and I stayed one night here, great service, clean rooms and close to everything. They many rooms in different locations in Nags Head. Some right on the beach, our room was across the road from the beach, just a little walk away. We enjoyed our stay.

We had a small room in the old section, just steps from Owens Restaurant. Liked the wood paneling and the white wicker furniture. Bathroom was fine; plenty of hot water. Clean. As in nearly all hotels/motels, there were not enough towel racks and hooks. The worst thing was the air-conditioner; it was VERY noisy.

The room felt damp, but that is to be expected since it's near the beach. We stayed at the courtyard building across the street from the older part of the motel, which is right on the beach. The beds were hard and our room had no smoke alarm. We also found a water bottle under the bed from the previous... More

Our room smelt bad, we turned off the A/C since it was full of mold and made the room smell even worse. The floors were bouncing due to the rottened wood structure. Even if they tried to hide with paint the problems, these are dangerous for your health. The lady at the front desk restricted the ice, since it was... More

I love this place. It is quirky, quaint, quiet and quality. We have been staying here going on 6 years. We were concerned they would be closed because of hurricane Arther but when we called the night before the front desk reasurred us they were open and ready for our reservation. When we did arrive they allowed us to check... More

We decided to make our trip to OBX a day early. We wanted to beat the 4th of July rush. The lady at the front desk was great. We told her that my sister had two broken feet and she respected our request for a first floor room and a handicap space. I would love to say the same for... More
