Reasonably cheap, reasonably clean, very dated property, probably suited best for fisherpersons not looking for/expecting more than a shower & a bed. Room I had was very, very small, as was bath. Bed more or less ok. Sheets, comforter very thin & faded. Had to move coffee pot to a chair to use it due to lack of outlets. Could... More

We love Oak Island. Not the fanciest place but great staff, great owners, clean rooms, great prices. This is the only place we would want to stay here.Great seafood across the street. Beautiful town. Great people.

Fancy? NO! Modern? NO! Old school charm? Yes! This little motel has its own little niche...in my opinion. It is very, very pet friendly, which was crucial for this trip. There were no extra fees, no size limitations. Our golden retriever was greeted with a gift bag, and all of the staff knew him by name from that point. The... More

Front desk clerk Super Nice!!! All other staff Super Nice!! Owner not so nice. Witnessed her working the second shift daily she would walk around the entire hotel checking up on everything(being Nosey) Just checking her investment I'm sure. But I what was most disturbing was the fact that if she saw something that she didn't like per say she... More

We have stayed at the Oak Island location twice. The first time was in March 2015 and the rate was very reasonable but had lots of noise in the room above us. At this time we found out that they are pet friendly. So when we stayed again in May 2015 we had actually moved to Oak Island and waited... More

Stayed two nights with my daughter who was home from college for the summer. Wanted to take her somewhere quiet and nice. Things I liked: outdoor grills and picnic tables. Rooms had real keys, not cards. Proximity to the beach. The beach itself was beautiful and quiet. I can't say the same for our room. The people next to us... More

Add a dirty run down facility with erratic wifi, sketchy tv reception and no air conditioning for a wonderful weekend. As a bonus the owners will start their wreck of a Buick at 5 am treating all within earshot to a wake up call to put Harley Davidson to shame. A very poor value for the money

All the rooms in this motel are smoking rooms so stay there only if you can tolerate the odor. No one in my family smokes. We had no other option as far as accommodation so we ended up staying here. It wasn't too bad. The location is ideal, close to the beach, restaurants and mini golf.

We stopped here just to check it out. The staff was very friendly. The owners let us look at the room before reserving. The room was clean as was the bathroom. The king bed was comfortable and there were all the comforts we needed for the night. The pool was very nice and well maintained. We would stay there again.
