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

I have seen reviews, both good and bad for this hotel. I decided to stay there with my 2 dogs to get away from life in general. I love the ocean and especially love staying in a place right on the beach. This hotel allowed me to do so. My room reminded me of an older cabin; it wasn't fancy,... More

We spent a week here and enjoyed it tremendously. So close to the beach that it almost seemed we could reach out and touch the dolphins as they swam in the surf. Beautiful beach and it was not crowded even with the great weather. I understand that each room is individually owned and each is decorated by its owner. From... More

We just came back from another awesome vacation at the Sea Vista in Topsail! Our rooms were clean & comfy and staff was friendly and eager to please. The beach is pristine and quiet. Wonderful location as it's close to many attractions.

We arrived early for a wedding. We went to the office at 1 to see if we could check in. The office lady was very rude about us arriving early. We did not check in. The location was fantastic. The room appeared to be clean. We then saw many cockroaches and the last straw was when my daughters woke up... More

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.
