We enjoyed our stay and picked this hotel because they allowed us to bring our dog. The unit was clean but dated. Glad to have a kitchen. This area of the outer banks is less crowded and less commercial so it is very relaxing.

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I'm 59 years old and my first trip to this motel was when I was 2. It's changed a lot since the old days because of devastating nor'easters. The cottage we used to stay in is now 50 feet beyond the breakers. But the Dillons (owners) have done a remarkable job remaking this wonderful place after every natural impact (i.e.,... More

Rooms are dated, but very clean. A few weird things going on with the furnishings - including a random professionally matter photo of a young girl "Stacy" hanging in the kitchen. Wifi connection isn't awesome unless you're right by the pool. The walls are very thin an we could hear our neighbors walking around and talking every night we were... More

We stayed in an ocean view cottage, and it was very nice. The room is very dated but very clean, and accommodating. The pool was great for I am not a beach person, definitely a great girls week was had by all!

Very tidy Little Cottage in Hatteras Village. The place has all the things one would need to cook dinner, or Just Hang out. If you want an ocean front, you had better book well in advance! Very Nice people operate this.

They have always been very clean and comfortable. This place has old school decor. We don't spend alot of time in the room as we our enjoying the beach. The staff... More

My family and I had to pack ourselves and our toddler up at 10pm at night after several three inch long cockroaches came out from under the doors, cabinets, and one even fell from the ceiling, which was the final straw. The nightmare began with a huge black spider in the bathtub when I went to give my daughter a... More

Loved the décor in the ocean front cabin we stayed in but there were lots of minor things that add up to just average review. Two outlets did not work and outside porch light. Windows hard to open and would not stay open. No ice machine, have to go to office every time and they filled your bucket. Thin walls,... More

Is it possible to be TOO CLOSE to the ocean? Perhaps in a hurricane. This might qualify. We were in 109, ocean front and it sounded like the waves were ready to come right on in. It was pretty windy one night and the deck chair flew off! That said, everything was great. Friendly staff, peaceful, helpful. Room is pretty,... More
