The rooms were very clean , and very quiet , this is a nice place to stay if you don`t want the fast pace of everyday, know one gets in a hurry, it`s very laid back and , it`s nice to sit back and relax and not have to be in a hurry for anything.

If you like newer 3 to 5 star hotels then this isn't the place for you. However if you're looking for a great place on the beach front this is it. As my family tells me, we are here for the beach not the room. The room (202) is extremely outdated but was clean and bug free. The staff was... More

I can't say enough good things about this place. While it is older,it is quaint and well maintained. Those who don't like it appear to be rating it on their expectations as opposed to the way it actually is. If want luxury, this is not the place for you. If you want a comfortable, clean, large, well maintained room with... More

The rooms are quaint and have the typical nautical decor. I... More

I have been staying her 1-3 times a year for the past 6 years. Just booked another mini-break. Prices are great, I usually try to do a pre-season, high season, and a late season trip. The service is fantastic! One time, I had a major issue, but they had it fixed within 2 hours and were kind and gracious. This... More

My boyfriend and I went with another couple and stayed in one of the apartments and had an absolute ball! It had a full kitchen so we could cook meals in the room and save money for sight seeing and the accommodations were fantastic! It was perfect for a low stress, easy going getaway, which is exactly what we were... More

I really do like the location of this motel. Employees were very friendly. I understand that the rooms are owned by different people. We got a room that the owner of that one did not take care off. Very out-dated, carpet was very dirty, not with sand but just needed cleaned very bad. Employees ran the sweeper every day but... More

I have been staying at the Sea Vista at Topsail Beach for nearly 10 years....and I come here on an average of every three months. I ALWAYS stay at the Sea Vista. It is simple motel with the only amenity being the oceanfront a quarters throw away. I find it rather amusing the people who nitpick about various things they... More
