“Return traveler”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I've stayed here twice. Once last Fourth of July when my car broke down in Avon. I was in a real lurch and these folks put me up for the night while my car was repaired. They were so awesome! My room was large, clean, and just what I needed. Because they were so awesome, I brought my daughter there on vacation last September. Once again, we had a great room and thoroughly enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Next time we'll take advantage of the free use of the boats for crabbing on the sound side. You can't get a better deal. And as a bonus, they're locally owned and just across the street from The Shipwreck!

Our family has been staying at the Outer Banks Motel for over 20 years. We have made many friends through the years with families that still come to the Outer Banks Motel. We have seen many changes and upgrades to the Outer Banks Motel. The main reason we keep coming back is we are treated like family. The Outer Banks Motel is clean, convenient, steps away from the beach and very comfortable. We have stayed in several of the different rooms/cottages. Our favorites are the beach houses. We had many opportunities to stay in the huge houses on the beach, but this is where our family chooses to stay.
Thank you Mrs. Dillon and staff for all of our wonderful memories we have made and continue to make at The Outer Banks Motel!!!
See you on August 3, 2013.

We stayed here a year ago and we LOVED it!! The room was very clean and so roomy, the pool was AMAZING, CHECK-in was so easy, the motel was quiet, and I loved having a numbered parking space so we always knew we'd have a spot close to our room!! Even though we had a tropical storm come through during our stay, we had a perfect view from our room and balcony to watch it pass through!! The price was more than reasonable!! The motel is located in the perfect spot!! We had the beach in front of us, the Pamilico Sound just down the road, and numerous restaurants nearby. We have 4 very young children which usually makes vacations feel like a lot of work, but being at the Outer Banks Motel felt a stress-free version of home!! Upon checking out, I was amazed by the patience and control the owner had in dealing with an irate person on the phone by calmly explaining that the room they wanted wasn't available for the weekend and offering other possible solutions. Even when I, from a distance, could hear the lady on the phone raise her voice, the owner continued to remain professional! We can't wait to come back again!!

We stayed in 14 and absolutely loved it. It was clean,comfortable and convenient. Off season so no crowds. That's what we like. We were welcomed with 2 kittycats at the office. Felt like home. People are friendly and prices are good. The only complaint I have is that we live about 7 hours away. Will be back next spring and planning on moving to OBX in the near future. Love it here! Can't wait to come back!!

Although run as a family motel. They promised what they said on the phone. Not the Hyatt, nor even a Hampton Inn but it was clean, comfortable and convenient. I would recommend staying here and I would again as well. There is a restaurant across the street, not the motels but a very good breakfast and lunch restaurant called Shipwreck.

A have only been to the outer banks 2 times. Once on our honeymoon and then we went back a few months later. We stayed here both times and loved it! Great location and very very clean and upgraded rooms!

This was a perfect place for us. Parking was under our unit & we were only steps from the beach. We saved by going off season & picking a unit with a kitchen. Yes, things are a bit dated but we weren't there to spend our time inside. My one disappointment was that the hot tub had issues. We also noticed the dirty windows but after having that first film coat our eye glasses, we knew it was from the salty ocean air and understood. This isn't a commercialized place. The beach wasn't crowded and everyone was friendly. We would love to go back again.
