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

Sea Vista is my favorite place to stay on the entire island! Love it! Quiet, Quiet, Quiet, and simply awesome. The rooms are very reasonably priced throughout the year, it is oceanfront, and did I mention, QUIET! Smiles! These guys are all the way down on south end of Topsail and away from the noise and crowds. Love it here... More

I love staying here! It's quiet and peaceful, no crowds to worry about! The WiFi doesn't always work if you need it and our phones didn't get much reception but it's supposed to be a vacation. Going back soon!

This is the 2nd time we have been to the Sea Vista - the first time in almost 20 years. It hasn't changed - it's still in an awesome location, the rooms are comfortable and the view is unbelievable. It was the first time we had brought our kids - and we have already booked another stay in August. One... More

I stayed in the honeymoon suite which is the only room on the top floor... complete privacy. :-) The king bed was comfy, had 2 chairs, tv/dvd/vcr, reduced size but full kitchen with dishes, toaster, and coffee maker, small kitchen table with 2 chairs, and private balcony with 2 chairs. The bathroom was outdated but everything worked just fine (no... More

The Sea Vista motel is situated right up against the dunes. Almost all the rooms have balconies facing the ocean. If you open the balcony door, you get the breeze, some sand, and the occasional bug flying in. This is not a motel for obsessively clean people. Our bathroom had some minor issues (a little bit of mold in one... More

We've had Topsail Island on our list of to do's for quite some time, and we finally had the opportunity to visit. There really isn't a whole lot there including places to stay unless one wants to rent a house, but that was frankly exactly what we wanted. We had looked at the several places on the south end of...

We picked this hotel because it was on the beach and pet friendly. We were bringing our dog to the beach for the first time, and since I planned on being on the beach most of the time and spend minimal time indoors I didn't think too much about the accommodations, and was pleasantly surprised with our room 204. It... More
