The rooms are outdated and not clean at all. We had about 4 to 5 leaks in the ceiling. Had to put down bowls to catch the water and one leak was right over the bed. Told them about the leaks and all they did was come in and dump the bowls/pots and put them back down.. I forgot to... More

We got an oceanfront room and when we walked in the smell was horrible!!!!!! Smelled like wet mold!! I am not picky at all and I would never stay there again. The carpet was wet and filthy, back door would hardly open or shut, and overall the room looked dirty.

If you get a room on the 2nd floor, open the door, and look across the room out the window, all you can say is, WOW! The view is breathtaking! On the deck you can watch the ocean above the dunes. Watch the sun rise in the morning and listen to the waves. Handy to shopping, & restaurants. Friendly staff,... More

Spent 3 nights in room 34 (second floor). The location and views from the room can't be beat. However. This hotel is in serious need of renovation. Dirty green carpet and bedspreads from the 80s should be the first to go. The rest I can overlook because the vintage feel is nice but they have to be making enough money... More

Yes, it's an older motel. We've been coming to OBX for 40 years and prefer the older places over chain hotels. The staff is helpful, courteous, accommodating. The motel is oceanfront so views from ocean from the upstairs rooms. Property has nice, clean pool, if you prefer it. There's a gazebo on walkway from hotel to beach. We were in... More

We love our annual stay at the Sea Foam. A wonderful stretch of beach for decompressing after a long drive. Takes you right back to your childhood with its comfortable but vintage style rooms. Especially pleased with the folks (and felines) in the office. A beautiful & Friendly place.

I loved the old-time feel of the Sea Foam in Nags Head! This hotel is on the historic registry and is very old. So you can't expect something like a "Westin" feel to it. But I loved the charm and the room was very large! We stayed in a suite/efficiency that had 2 Queen Beds, a stove/oven, full sized refrigerator... More
