We have stayed at the Oak Island location twice. The first time was in March 2015 and the rate was very reasonable but had lots of noise in the room above us. At this time we found out that they are pet friendly. So when we stayed again in May 2015 we had actually moved to Oak Island and waited... More

Stayed two nights with my daughter who was home from college for the summer. Wanted to take her somewhere quiet and nice. Things I liked: outdoor grills and picnic tables. Rooms had real keys, not cards. Proximity to the beach. The beach itself was beautiful and quiet. I can't say the same for our room. The people next to us... More

Add a dirty run down facility with erratic wifi, sketchy tv reception and no air conditioning for a wonderful weekend. As a bonus the owners will start their wreck of a Buick at 5 am treating all within earshot to a wake up call to put Harley Davidson to shame. A very poor value for the money

All the rooms in this motel are smoking rooms so stay there only if you can tolerate the odor. No one in my family smokes. We had no other option as far as accommodation so we ended up staying here. It wasn't too bad. The location is ideal, close to the beach, restaurants and mini golf.

We stopped here just to check it out. The staff was very friendly. The owners let us look at the room before reserving. The room was clean as was the bathroom. The king bed was comfortable and there were all the comforts we needed for the night. The pool was very nice and well maintained. We would stay there again.

We expected the rooms to be dated, based on the overall appearance of the motel, and that was okay with us. The room was clean and offered a king sized bed with a coffee maker, microwave, and mini-fridge. What we didn't expect was for the bed to be short sheeted since there was no fitted sheet, just two flat sheets.... More

We found this place on Trip advisor and decided to give it a try since the reviews were good, they allow pets and we needed it on short notice. We were very disappointed in this place and found the reviews to be not at all representative to what we experienced this past weekend. The only exception was the friendly and... More

Recently returned from another wonderful trip to OKI. If you're looking for luxury, Captain's Cove isn't for you. But.....If you're looking for an affordable place with a friendly and accommodating staff, this is it !! The rooms may be outdated but they're clean. It's just a short walk to he beach, grocery, bars, shops and eateries. A friend & I... More
