Our room was nicely appointed. Mini fridge, microwave. Ocean front and the sunrises are amazing. The staff was courteous and cleaned our room every day. We stayed on the top floor and yes it has the best views of the ocean but it is backbreaking carrying luggage up the steps. Keep that in mind. The path to the beach is... More

This motel is nice enough. It's right on the beach and that's a real plus. The room was clean, but a bit out dated. Everyone I dealt with there was really nice, and the rates are fair. There is no swimming pool and I didn't see a lot in the area to do other than the beach, but it felt... More

We had reserved a room for our son and 2 year old cheweeni. This motel was suppose to be so "pet friendly". We all went into the office to check in and a rude big older man was at the desk. He takes one look at us and shakes his head. He walks slowly toward me and my dog who... More

Our family has stayed here the last three years. It is affordable, ocean front and on the beautiful south end that is quiet and peaceful. It is "pet-friendly," but that means no cats---"the dander" they said. We have stayed in a room and in both apartments and all are just right for a long weekend beach stay.

This motel is a good value. It is right on the beach and our room was clean. The staff were nice during every interaction. We called last minute and got the last room available so there weren't any options, but the next time I will definitely request a nonsmoking room. We especially enjoyed watching the moonrise and the waves at... More

Spent 5 nights at the Sea Vista Motel in Topsail Beach, NC. Was pleasantly surprised at how nice our room was. Their website doesn't have a lot of pictures so we weren't too sure what we were going to get. The room we had was very nice and felt like a home away from home. Our room had a queen... More

We booked this hotel thinking it wouldn't be much, but we didn't care. To our surprise this hotel was awesome! It's not fancy, but it's clean, quiet, and has everything you need. The view is AMAZING. We were on the second floor(room 301). We were cautious about staff because of the negative reviews about them but they were all very... More

Great little hotel on the beach! Not fancy but clean and comfortable, it's a perfect location. Topsail is the best beach for relaxation and there's great little restaurants and shops a few miles away. Definitely will return!

I was pleasantly surprised. Room is very spacious and has a homey feel. There's a full size refrigerator, toaster oven, microwave and toaster which were a welcome surprise. Plenty of rocking chairs on your own patio so you can sit and watch the ocean right outside your room. Beach is laid back and not swarming with people. The front of... More

The location is perfect, quiet, peaceful, and the views are awesome. Rooms are equipped as advertised and beds are comfortable. Balcony gives a beautiful view of the ocean. We had the balcony door open and had left the room door open while carrying in bags. Very windy that day. Wind gust blew the room door shut and we could not... More
