This place has beat out the chain hotels like Baymont Inn in Manchester, CT for the Best Value to date on our long 60-day trip down to Key West. This is not a brand new property but it felt like new inside. It is so well-situated between the Sea and the Sound sides of this stretch of the Outer Banks.... More

A true beach motel. Cozy, clean and comfortable. A short walk to the beach. The owners are very personable. Rates are very reasonable. Rodanthe is the quintessential beach town! No tourist traps here. Can't wait to return and stay longer.

First time to the OBX and decided to give Sea Sound Motel a shot after reading the good reviews. I agree; this motel is well kept, it's in a convenient and peaceful location, and the staff is friendly. Would stay again for sure.

Our room was clean and nicely appointed. If you're looking for a quiet place to stay within a walk to the beach and are on a small budget, I think you'll enjoy your stay here. Very friendly office staff. This part of the outer banks is away from the built-up portion of the northern outer banks. You're still close enough... More

This place is a hidden gem in the middle of Rodanthe. Fred is amazingly hospitable. The facilities are clean and well kept. A short walk to the beach. A short drive to nearby Avon/Buxton. Will definitely come back!

The Sea Sound was absolutely perfect for our needs. We couldn't do the Sat.-Sat. rentals typical of OBX so instead made an extra long weekend staying at the Sea Sound. The owners are two lovely people, who take excellent care of the motel. Our room was impeccably clean & ideally located a short walk from the beach. It really was... More

If coming to OBX, look no further than Sea Sound Motel. We stay here for 2 nights prior to meeting the whole family at our bigger Beach House a few streets over. It is run by a friendly couple. There are regular 2 queen bed rooms (we had this time) or 2 queen with mini kitchens (3 night stay required... More

Sea-Sound Motel is a gem of a motel. It's located in Rodanthe, which is center in the Outer Banks and away from the busy tourist areas. It's also very reasonably priced. The hotel is run by a wonderful couple who are knowledgeable about the area. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Grounds are maintained. There is also a pool. A... More

Definitely the place to stay if you are going to the OBX... even tho I would like to keep it a hidden secret all for myself! Its an easy ride from Williamsburg, VA. Always clean, always friendly and helpful. Never had any issues, and we have stayed multiple times!! Love this motel.

Great Management, clean and comfortable rooms, reasonable prices and all set in the beautiful sea and sound area of Rodanthe NC. The owners treat everyone like a friend and, over time, that is what they are. It is set off the road and very peaceful and quiet. What more could you ask for.
