My husband and I stayed for two nights only. We chose this place because of its location and after reading really positive reviews on the TripAdvisor. We stayed in the room facing the pool as I didn't feel like paying extra amount for the ocean view. Personally, I don't think it is such a great place. It is very outdated... More

Love this hotel. Room was very spacious, open your door , and the beach is right there! Nice full size bathroom and kitchen. Full size fridge too was nice to have. There are chairs right outside your room. Had a ground floor room- just step right onto the sand. Awesome views. Would definitely come here again

A little outdated but right on the beach. Very friendly staff, walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Rooms are decent, pool is nice. My family has been staying here for the last 7 years and will continue to stay here for many more years.

As I sit outside on the second floor porch in my rocking chair, enjoying the ocean view, I figure now is a great time to share my love for the OBXML ❤ We have been here, in room 10 ( 2 bedroom) since July 13th, with only a few days left to enjoy. Everything has been perfect for yet another... More

We have 2 kids ages 5 and 8. This place is perfect for a family. It has a nice fairly large pool. A play area fenced in and awesome beach access. Our kids would walk out of the room and right on to the beach. Its right out your door. The place is a through back to the Sixties and... More

Air conditioning so loud one could not talk, watch TV, or sleep with it on. In the so called kitchen the outlets were at floor level and whatever one plugged in had to sit on the floor, coffee maker, etc. Windows would not open, no fresh 'ocean air'. No table and chairs, just a broken down desk. Had to get... More

My family stayed here for two nights - we had 3 queen sized beds, perfect for my husband and me with our two grown children. The kitchen was pretty well stocked, the livingroom was huge, and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was small, but worked. The rooms are a little outdated and could use refreshing, but everything was clean.... More

My best friend and I had tickets to see Collin Raye at the Island Opry and were looking to stay oceanfront on a budget. In my research I came across and booked the Outer Banks Motor Lodge. The room was spacious and clean. It's older, so there were no outlets in the bathroom or in front of any mirror. There... More

This is a real, no messing, old style (intended as nothing but a compliment) seaside motel. This is no Days Inn or Hampton or Hilton Express, the OBML captures the spirit of simpler times. Right on the beach (the rooms with ocean view mean you can sit by your door with your toes in the sand), an enormous room with... More

The Outer Banks Motor Lodge is an exceptional place to stay! It has a wonderful, unhurried atmosphere, and the staff was very attentive! Our room was spotless, with a cottage feel, and our view of the ocean was extraordinary! We sat on the porch visiting with other guests and just enjoyed the peacefulness of it all. I highly recommend staying... More
