This was our first time to Ocracoke and we can't wait to return next year! It's now our favorite by far beach vacation. Walk everywhere! My teenagers loved it because I felt it safe and small enough for them to go out on their own for food/shopping/etc. This hotel was recommended by friends who have been staying there with their...

We very much enjoyed our stay-staff was very friendly, especially Bud Deans. Our room was very comfortable, well maintained, the location was convenient, and a huge plus was the hammock on the porch! Only down side-they didn't yet have connectivity in the rooms, and had to head to the office to get wifi. Should be fixed soon, we were told.... More

This place is VERY friendly and accomodating for all your needs. Beautiful view, GREAT rocking chairs on deck, close to the music spots in the evening you can listen from your balcony. Very clean and comfy. Plenty of hot water (a plus!). Thanks for everything!

Absolutely wonderful people managing this Motel and the location is perfect! We needed a room on the Friday before Memorial Day and they came through for us and were such a joy to be around. Having the Jolly Rodger restaurant right across the street was perfect.
