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 The rooms may be outdated but they're clean.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

We stayed over the 4th of July weekend. For the price the motel is great. It has an excellent location. The rooms are a dated,however the bathroom in our unit was recently updated. The parking lot will get tight on a busy weekend but it's tree covered,it's nice to come out to a cool car. The room has a fridge,sink,utensils... More

I was surprised by their rates when all the other hotels on Oak Island went way up in price for the summer. The hotel is in a nice area, and the building and grounds are well-maintained. The problem my family had was that every room was a smoking room, and the smell was overpowering. We are all allergic to smoke,... More

I was traveling through the area and came across this place and was glad I did. A small motel, not a chain, is the perfect place to rest after travel. I try to support small businesses whenever I can, so this fit the bill. The office staff is by far, the best selling point of this motel. The rooms were... More

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
