Close to everything and very clean. Half the price of other places in OBX. Park in front of your room and enjoy the rocking chairs on the porch. Quiet & a great place for couples without the noise of a pool or kid activities. The owners are super nice. We'll be back!

Four stars for what it is: a simple, comfortable, neat, clean older motel where you park in front of your room. Rocking chair, small fridge in the room. Flat screen tv. Very nice proprieter. Price is less than others in the area.

This is a very friendly family-run motel with a folksy atmosphere. Even though it has a slightly run-down feeling it is clean and neat. We had been on the road for a week and needed a laundromat which the hotel staff pointed out not very far away. They also recommended an Italian restaurant (La Dolce Vita) across the street, which...

Yes, this is a one star hotel. Yes, it is pet friendly with all of the issues you might imagine. However, if you are a dog lover, you live with these issues daily. The hotel is run by the granddaughter of the founder and she is a fantastic hostess! She went out of her way to attend to our every... More

My husband and I stayed here for Valentines day weekend. We were very pleased with the renovated room that we got. The room was very comfortable with a flat screen t.v and decorated with beach decor. I found the room very clean and the staff very friendly. I also liked that we had an option of smoking or non smoking... More

after a harrowing experience, we hit the road, and couldn't find anything on a saturday night in the outer banks. with our dog, most spots were either gone, or over $200. we asked locals all kinds of questions, and thankfully some of the folks in corner stores, turned us on to this island, and a few suggestions. we saw this...

Not a lot of money, but you don't mind spending a little more if you get good service. Office personnel is nice but can't stand the smell of urine in front office. I love animals but let them out once in a while. Spend a llittle of the money you overcharge to update the towels and rooms. No ammenities at... More

My husband and I stayed here thinking we got a good deal after staying in a wonderful bungalow at Ocracoke for the same price-WRONG! The first clue should have been the smell of urine and dirty animals in the small office/lobby. The rooms looked fairly clean I admit, but I couldn't get past the torn comforter and the mildew (I...

It is old and worn, but so is the town. We had a great trip to the Outer Banks and stayed at a number of different places. This place is old and very basic. Something odd... They had an area for their dogs to run around behind the hotel... like right behind our windows. Also, the dogs were in the... More

The first impression when we got there was not too good. The lady behind the counter was somewhat rude, but later that day after the shift change, the new front desk clerk was much, much nicer. We stayed in their "honeymoon suite" which was somewhat nice, but nothing special. The walls were tissue paper thin. We could hear everything being... More
