Had some issues with check in as we booked the two room apartment at the motel but were conveniently "switched" to a cottage... they said the cottage was within walking distance to the motel and beach... cottage was on the sound and a solid mile or two from the hotel. We got switched back but they booked the apartment the last few days of our trip so I'm assuming that's why they tried to switch us... no compensation was made, which was pretty lame.
Outside of that, the two bedroom room was nice... clean and had a nice kitchenette. When we switched to the two single rooms one was a smoking room, or at least it smelled that way, so that wasn't very pleasant.
The pool is very nice and a great location with very little traffic. The beach access was top notch and we could leave our stuff on the beach.
Overall, if you want to be in the Village of Hatteras area this is a great motel... quite and nice and not very spendy, especially if you get the two bedroom apt for a large family.
