This motel was the perfect price for what we needed.....LOCATION. The staff is hard-working, kind, and welcoming. However, I will say that the website room photos are nowhere close to representing the room we had. This is obviously a very old establishment (in the process of a room-by-room renovation) and everything in our room was very dated (pre 1970s) including the mattresses. The towels were new and the room was freshly cleaned cosmetically, but there's nothing that can be done about aging walls, doors, etc. If you're a Northerner coming down to the OBX expecting Hilton standards, you will be sorely disappointed. But like most, you will spend most of your time on the beach and little time in your room. Don't complain. Best wishes to the owners/operators of the Croatoan Inn for maintaining a landmark business and retaining the old world feel of the OBX. I'd rather give my patronage to a mom-and-pop motel than see the chains come in and take over. Thanks for meeting our need.
