This was a last minute booking for us. The people that we dealt with were very nice and helpful and the location itself was great! However, the accommodations were less than desirable. When walking into our room the initial scent was musty, I was very put off by his. The other thing I had an issue with is the bed... More

This is an older motel, but well kept. Owner is great. Very laid back & fun. Older does not mean bad. It was clean, quiet, & we very much enjoyed our stay Has a pool & outdoor shower to wash the sand off. When you are going to the beach, it is usually to enjoy the beach. Not to pay... More

If you have family or friends in the area or who have other accommodations and you would all like to get together, I have 3 words to say about this motel. DO NOT BOOK.

(Shaking my head...) If you weren't so intent upon sounding believable, I'd be tempted to save my breath and just chuckle at this....and you. You see, we like to assume some level of civility and honesty in those who reserve and rent/occupy accommodations at our property. Occasionally, however, we encounter people who seem not to know how to act when... More

We came from Kentucky upon a recommendation from a friend. We absolutely loved it. It's great place to stay. Super friendly staff, very courteous and outgoing. Rooms are well kept. It's a nice little place with a family atmosphere. The beach is a minute away, just around the corner. We visited Wrightsville and Carolina Beach. Way to crowded for our... More

Kure Keys Motel is a 1960's quaint old school beach Motel in an old school beach community. It is only the second hotel I have ever stayed in that requires a deposit for the TV remote. Know that if you visit, be sure to bring towels if you want to use the pool or hot tub - you cannot use... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small, family-owned and operated oceanside motel. (Not oceanfront). Just 100 feet from the beach and boardwalk in Kure Beach, NC, our rooms face parallel with the beach, so you must step out of your room for the ocean view. We have no "ocean view" rooms, though the public deck/porch on the ocean side of our building affords an excellent view of the beach, ocean, and magnificent sunrises!NO PETS : please don't ask if we're "pet friendly". We absolutely *love* pets (have some at home), but they are not allowed at our motel. It is really not a matter of "friendliness" :-)We have no designated "non-smoking" rooms. For those guests requesting non-smoking accommodations, in advance, we aggressively sanitize and deodorize our rooms with a *very* effective ozone generator. Our guests are nearly always *very* pleased with the results!We have a large grill available, a coin laundry, fish cleaning facility, and more than ample parking. There's even room for your boat, under 23'. With two "extra-long" double beds, all of our rooms can accommodate four guests rather comfortably. A small rollaway cot/bed is available for a fifth guest, but there can be no more than five people occupying a room, regardless of ages/sizes. We have excellent quality linens,flat screen TVs, and free WiFi! Outdoor jacuzzi! Plenty of free ice (can you believe that so many places *charge* you for ice?!), a convenience store just across the street with bait and tackle, beach supplies, etc. Yes, we *really* will inflate your water toys for you! Come visit ... more   less
