This is just a great little place with I think a total of 11 units. Ocean side with only a short walk down a small trail over the dunes to the beach. 8-Very clean rooms and 3-two bedroom clean trailers. Great prices and and very friendly owners and workers always around somewhere on the property cleaning and asking if you... More

This is the best place to stay, hands down. We were only booked to stay one night while in NC shopping for houses, but loved it so much we stayed 5 days. Wonderful access to the beach, clean, and friendly. Would never stay anywhere else!

A small property on the ocean side of the road. We stayed in their small efficiency for a couple days to get away and fish. The room is basic but clean and the innkeepers are great. The beach is a short walk over the dunes. There are restaurants and bait right next door and across the street. Couldn't be better.

While we knew that this was a very basic no-frills motel we were not prepared for what appeared to be a lack of basic maintenance. The wall air conditioner was so loud you could not hear yourself think. We asked to be moved to another room (and were graciously accommodated) where the AC unit was just as loud. (The response...

We spent two nights at William and Garland Motel. This is a throw-back, old-fashioned, family-run, simple motel. No pool. No breakfast. Wireless internet if you sit on the owner's front porch :) Their photos online are honest -- no frills to be expected. But it is clean (if tired) and friendly. Lots of doggies around -- but NO fleas, so... More

My husband & I and our 2 shelties just came back from a 1st time stay at this motel. I do not know how we missed this place for so many years but it is now our #1 place to stay at the beautiful Emerald Isle beaches. Everything and more than what you could ask for, and the folks that... More

Very nice quite place at the beach. 3 min. trail walk to beach. Can't beat the value. Rooms are small but, when at the beach why spend time in the room. Family hotel. with everything you need. Walk way to beach very nice.

My family and I stayed at the William & Garland Motel from 30 Aug - 3 Sep 2013. I won't waste your time so I'll tell you why you shouldn't stay here first and then tell you why you should stay here. You shouldn't stay at the W&G Motel, because the fixtures are old and outdated. This is a no... More

This is a minimal motel, but the price reflects that. Located on North Carolina's Crystal Coast, it is about 5 miles south of Atlantic Beach. This motel was built in the 50s(?) ... the proprietor said the initial price for an overnight stay was $5. Times have changed on the Crystal Coast and it is hard to find a place... More
