“comfortable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

First time here and I have very little to say negatively. Motel is old and could stand some renovations. Our room #8, was dated, as I imagine they all are. The room was clean, ac was cold, TV and fridge worked fine. This was a surprisingly quiet place given all the families staying there. Slept like a rock, bed was comfortable and I am 5'9". The only 2 complaints I would have are the parking is a little tight, thankfully we didn't bring full sized pick up. And the ice room could use some revamping. Overall, our stay was pleasant and comfortable. As for all the negative reviews, if you want perfection stay somewhere else. Our visit was just fine.

Room Tip: Room 8....no complaints

This older motel is right on the beach. We have a two bed efficiency we every thing we need ! It is more cabin rustic, but for the price , I'm fine with that ! The management is very nice. Dolphins were swimming so close to the beach, the pool is clean, the room is quiet. Completely happy for the price and location, steps to the beach . Some of the rooms are on the beach front !

We decided at last minute to stay one night in Nags Head for much needed getaway. We stayed here 25 years ago with our sons who were very young and my husband was building a dental practice and couldn't take a week off. When I called,the gentleman was so helpful. Though we couldn't get a Fri-Sun rm. he had a cancellation for Sat and we took it. Awesome renovation to rm and 3 steps to gazebo leading to beach. It's a great place for kids with a pool in case beach conditions aren't great.

This by far was the best trip I have been on in many years. Loved this motel, for its retro feel. Not fancy but clean and convienent to restaurants and of course the beach. I will be returning next summer.

Room Tip: Book early I liked being on the second floor with the balcony, lots of privacy

We stayed here for a night and had a great time. Booking the room was easy and the staff member i spoke to was very helpful as i asked about rooms for 3 families. The pool was clear and the shallow attached kids pool was a nice surprise. We had room 4 next to the office and it had 2 doubles and a kitchenette. The room was clean and well appointed. There was free coffee in the morning in 2 locations. I only interacted with 1 staff member on site who was very helpful (the manager's boyfriend) and the others were nice about us walking through the lobby over and over to avoid rain and visit friends. There were no bugs in our room and the carpet seemed clean and newer. Overall it was a nice stay, affordable, great to be able to book just 1 night and we would go back again.

We stayed at the Sea Foam in July of 2014. We had a great time! It's a blast from the past!! Rarely do you find a family owned, family oriented motel that is clean and well maintained. But this is it! Our door opened up right onto the sand dunes, where the kids played in the sand. We loved sitting outside of our room, drinking coffee, and enjoying the ocean breeze. After coming off the beach, we spent the evening at the pool, playing corn hole, and chatting with other vacationers who had been staying at the Sea Foam for 30 years! We will be going back next year!

Room Tip: First Floor oceanfront rooms open right onto the sand dunes.

We stayed here and had a great time. It was a rainy weekend, but we still enjoyed ourselves. It is near the beach (we can see it from our room), has an outside shower for self and feet along the path from the beach to the hotel, and has many amenities: Pool, shuffleboard, Cornhole, coffee, free wifi, etc. Our room has a front porch area and a private back porch area with an ocean view. In addition, there are many nearby places to eat, shop (a great home-town grocery store that has all you may have forgotten), entertain (bike rentals, etc. Some things I hope are better for our next visit: Water pressure (it occasionally dropped to a fast drip in the shower), and my knowledge of the surroundings (I saw they allowed dogs, so next visit, we may bring our puppy), and the weather. The people are VERY nice here. One caveat - this is not the Hyatt, it's a beach motel, but as a beach motel, it's one of our favorites.

Room Tip: Ask for a poolside upper deck room where you can still see the ocean from your back porch balcony...
