Room was clean but did have bugs. Bath rooms small and needed updating. For a little more money you can get a lot more room. I would not stay at this establishment again. The bed was actually comfortable,

The management is really nice and accommodating. The only thing is not good is the air-conditioning you cannot control the temperature is really to cold. And if they can add more outlet to charging your cellphone or computer much better. But overall is not bad just to sleep only.

Old, old, old! Yes a good rate, but come on owner's, do some overdue maintenance and updates. Rusty bath drain, buckled plaster, rusty pipes in bathroom, outdated microwave, tv volume broken, cigarette holes in broken wood chairs inside room. Rusty safe, rusted fridge, old worn mattress, holes in pillowcases! The outdoor porch chairs were horrible, broken seat straps, should all be trashed. Thanks but no thanks, will not stay again.

My son & I stayed in an oceanfront efficiency and were very impressed with the room, the cleanliness, the kitchen staples (plates, glasses, silverware, etc., a microwave & a coffee pot along with a fridge, stove and sink), and the location (right on the beach). It was perfect for our short getaway. We will definitely be back!

Good for the price. Staff was great. Its a little worn but clean. They have old fashion tv's and dated furniture. They have very few ocean front rooms. Most are across the street but not a long walk. They are next to a restaurant by the the same name that is a Nags Head landmark. One of the best in the OBX. It is within walking distance to several ice cream shops, a basic grocery store and a souvenir shop. Its a great place for a family on a budget like us. There were also a lot of fishermen that enjoyed easy access to the pier. I would stay there again. Places like this are disappearing.
