We were looking for a small local pet friendly motel to stay at for a few days on Oak Island. We didn't care to have anything fancy, just a basic room and home base for our beach trips and exploring the area. We also didn't want to spend a lot. Captains Cove met those criteria. We found the room clean,... More

It's a place to lay your head and that is about all. The room was not first quality but it was clean. Bedspread had cigarette burns on it. Towels were the size of washcloths. But we just needed someplace to stay for one night while getting an extra day of fishing in on our vacation.

The place has been there for a long time. Just like the furniture. We had to change rooms because we had a malfunctioning doorknob---i.e., we were locked IN. The room they switched us to reeked of cigarettes. They claimed there were no other rooms clean, yet the vacancy sign was still on, and there were no more than 5 cars... More

We rented the upstairs apartment and had a wonderful time. I love this motel, it is very nostalgic and quaint like going to the weekend beach cabin. I found everything to be extremely clean and bug free. 5 min walk to the best beaches ever. The pool is wonderful too, great for small children. Loved sitting out at night on... More

We are leaving this place TOMORROW MORNING!!!! Stains on carpet, stains on chair, gaps in door no elevator, and just dumpy outdated decor. This place is pet friendly and really shouldn't be. The walls are thin and you can hear other people's dogs barking. No real amenities. Ugggh...She did refund us because we reserved two nights. Only good thing.

Pretty great value for the money. They messed up our reservations that I had made two months in advance (2 bedroom apartment), so they gave us two adjourning rooms, instead. We would have loved to have the apartment, but it worked out, as we had two bathrooms, and two separate rooms for the same price as the apartment would have... More

My wife and I stayed here in August 2012 and while it was inexpensive (about $78/night) we would not stay here again. First the location is excellent, it's only short 5 minute walk to the beach. We are not very picky but this motel was pretty crappy. The one bed in the room was probably a full size so needless... More

I don't recall just how many times we've stayed here. If I'm in Oak Island, we are at Captain's Cove. They know me by name, I know them by name. We are extended family so to speak. They always come out and greet us with smiles and hugs, and I always promise to visit again soon. Sounds much like visiting... More

My husband and I booked a room here because we had our dog with us and there are few pet friendly hotels in the area. We arrived and the women at the front desk was not very nice. We unloaded the car, our dog and went in and OMG I didn't want to even sit on the bed. The carpet... More
