We were overwhelmed trying to figure out how we could possibly afford to take the family to the Outer Banks (during busy season). Then, like an answer to a prayer, I stumbled across the Tar Heel Motel. Very easy online reservation with the best rates to be found anywhere in the area. Amazing specials on top of the already low prices! Perfect location. Clean rooms. Friendly and extremely attentive staff.
We weren't looking for a Hilton with a long list of amenities. We were looking for a comfortable, clean place to crash in the evenings while exploring. I don't know about all of the rooms, but ours had a good-size (not full-size, but not mini) fridge, which was a nice surprise when you're storing food & drinks for the whole family.
We couldn't have asked for a nicer home away from home on our OBX trip. As long as your expectations are realistic, you're sure to be happy with your stay here. I know that when we make it back to the Carolina coast, I won't look for a room anywhere else!
