Right on the beach - literally step off your own patio onto the sand! Each patio has 2 rocking chairs and a table - lovely to sit outside in the morning, watch the sunrise, also nice out there in the evening. There is a faucet in an enclosed area to rinse off your feet when you leave the beach.This is... More

This was our third visit here, and we were only able to get a poolside room, which was fine. We had been in oceanfront, 2nd floor twice before. After being switched from Rm. 20 (horrible and not as advertised as an efficiency) to Rm. 23, our 4 night stay was very pleasant. We love how close it is to the... More

Very disappointed in the room ...please look at pictures. They make you initial a form when you check saying "no early check out or you loose your money.", I see why now. Everything is very run down and not well maintained. A lot of rust. Not pleased at all...

This place is a hidden gem. If you have pets with you on vacation this is great. Service is awesome especially Debbie at the front desk. You are on the ocean and there is a nice pool. Nothing fancy, but very nice rooms.

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 It is very outdated...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A little outdated but right on the beach.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
