Made a reservation 2 months in advance to stay at this motel. Checked in and was given Room #20. Opened the door, and there was an odor, couldn't figure it out. Until I sat my make up case on the bathroom sink, and smelled a foul odor. And noticed mold around the sink area door. Opened up the door, and... More

I stayed here with friends for 2 nights before going out on a charter boat. The room was clean and convenient and the in-room coffee was excellent! The location is great and the staff is friendly. We'll stay again if we decide to take out a charter!

Room stinks like mold or something. Table where phone sat had extensive water damage. Mirrors in bathroom had moisture damage. Goose poop everywhere. Small pools, unfriendly people in office. Maintenance guy who brought us extra blankets was a great guy but he was the only good thing about this place. I have been coming to Hatteras for over 20 years.... More

Room reeks of mold (or something). Musty. Air conditioning barely works. Moldy tub caulking. Doors/ door handles dirty. Furniture dirty. I can only imagine what the mattresses look like. Thank God I brought Lysol wipes. Huge disappointment. Stay in Ocracoke or before Hatteras.

Every time I fish out of Hatteras I stay at the Marlin. The hotel is as clean as any on the Outer Banks. It is very close to everything and well kept. Willa has been very helpful on my last 2 trips. I am sure I will be back in the next few weeks

We picked this place because it’s close to the dock for an early morning boat trip. The room was clean and spacious with all the amenities we need. We particularly appreciated the powerful air conditioner which kept the room cool and dry.

We selected this hotel for a one night stay on our trip to Topsail Island. The room was clean and bright - Room 5. Had everything needed for a great stay. The bed was super comfy.
