The room was immaculate but the property could use some TLC. The people couldn't be nicer, including story-telling quasi-permanent residents. Hang out on the porch and you'll be treated to all sorts of Dare County history from people who lived it.

Manteo motels are pricey for the value they offer and the Dare Haven is definitely overpriced at $75 per night for October stays. The owner is a very helpful person and was generous with sharing information on where to eat, golf, and outer banks sights. Unfortunately the motel rooms could use some TLC and updating. The first room we were... More

Value for money, comfortable mattresses. We stayed in the smoking rooms on the west side of the motel court. Not unexpectedly, these smoking rooms hadn't been updated like the other rooms, and they were a bit "worn" but certainly clean.

Nothing Fancy A clean place to sleep and shower when we spend our days on the beach It has a area where you can grill and a couple of tabels to eat at. Boys had room to throw a ball around, This place works well if you choose to travel with pets

I have stayed here 3 times this summer now so I can give an honest review. I have met the owner and the staff and they are good local people. They will not rip you off like the hotel across the street(Elizabethan Inn). I stayed at the Elizabethan Inn the first and last time and will never go back again.... More

There is no reason this motel should be rated Number 1. It is cheap and the beds are clean and comfortable but that is about it. The whole building is in poor shape. The A/C unit in the window totally dominates the room noise. The rooms are very small, If you check the competitor across the road, for a bit... More

A little M&P Motel that provides the necessities for a great nites rest. The room was clean, plenty of pillows and the AC & refrigerator worked fine. The bed was very comfortable with a thick and firm mattress! There were plenty of towels, soap and shampoo and the only amenity missing was a hair dryer. This is a one-person check... More

A great motel close to the historical area of Manteo. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. The room was clean and well maintained and the beds were extremely comfortable. I will most certainly stay again.

We stayed because one the riders on our trip had been here before. He was right. It was ckean and competitively priced. The lady at the desk was very friendly and definitely a people person. The front porch all around would be a great place to sit and watch the world go by. As it is we sat and talked... More

Quiet. Room was clean and quaint. Cable, fridge, ac unit, nice tv...bed was comfy pillows are thin and flat. Small bathroom. The towels are mix and match and thin. I had read on other reviews to bring own towel if thin towels are not to your liking. So I did and glad of it. The room over all was perfect... More
