I just want to say that the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I had reservations for the weekend, I live 3 hrs away and they close at 9. I had some issues come up and I called and the staff stayed late and made it available for me to get my room even though I was going to be... More

A tired old style motel at first rate prices. It was clean, Service was so- so. No morning coffee, Office didn;t open until 9am. No ice in the machine in the morning. There are better opportunities in Nags Head.

The staff was very accommodating when rooms were reserved. It is close to the beach and other activities. The pool is nice. The beds rated as one of the two worst sleeping experiences in my life. Soooo uncomfortable. The room smelled bad when we first entered but that improved with our two night stay. The linoleum in the bathroom was... More

My husband and I are not much on leaving reviews, but I felt like it was time with the amount that we spent on this room in Aug. I understand that no room or place to stay is perfect, but with the amount of customers that stay at these places each yr, they could afford to make it a more... More

We loved this place! The staff were so friendly! Nice pool and great beach access! It is an older motel, but we really enjoyed it! We enjoy small time motels instead of the big name hotels when we visit the OBX! Will definitely stay here again!!!

Good old fashion motel. A bit dated, but it was clean and cool. If you just need a place to sleep and shower this is it. I would return. The beds where pretty comfortable. For a family of four it was really reasonable.

Didn't know what to expect. But was pleasantly surprised. We had one of the refinished rooms and it was great! Loved that we could walk to most things. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Pool was great! Best value!

We stayed here in May of 2014. It is an older motel but was very clean and had what we needed. There was a microwave, fridge and Wifi and the location cannot be beaten. Walk across the street and you are at the beach. If you want to explore the outer banks, the motel is in an ideal location. Everyone... More
