The hotel is older, a little worn around the edges, but it's very clean. The room was decorated in a beachy way that made us smile. The location couldn't be better—you're right on the beach. And the beach itself is uncrowded. Staff was super friendly and helpful. They were out there every day cleaning the grounds as well as the... More

Desk clerk friendly and helpful. But room subpar. Beds not very comfortable. Sound proofing nil. Heard every step people above us took. Dropped earring and when got down to find it realized beds had not been cleaned under in quite awhile. We were planning on a 3 nite stay but left after one. Moved up beach to cheaper , cleaner...

My wife and I have stayed at the Sea Vista several times in the past few years. We now go at least twice each summer. The prices are very reasonable, the rooms are always clean and it's a 30 second walk to get the sand between our toes. It's not a 5 star place, but it's comfortable.

If you are looking for a no frills place to stay while you spend your time on the beach, then this is the place for you! The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and the beach is relatively quiet. There are no elevators. Lots of steps. Even to get to the beach...you climb the stairs up and over the... More

This property is older. The staff is limited. The amenities are nonexistent. Still the best vacation we've ever had! You MUST try to get the Honeymoon Suite. It has nothing to do with your current romantic state and everything to do with room location. If you are looking to relax and totally reset your life this is the place to... More

Older motel located on a very quiet end of beach. Rooms are clean, views are awesome. Lots of steps, so be aware. Will comeback!! Our rom was a smoking room and pet friendly, but had no smell. Great value!

I have stayed here about eight times and have reservations for July. The rooms are not fancy and this is not a four star hotel, however, it is my idea of Heaven on earth. It is quiet and peaceful with the best beachfront views I have ever seen. You are ON THE OCEAN. Not a mile or parking lot or... More

The Sea Vista is one of a handful of motels on Topsail Island. It is an older motel but the best on the island. The location is great with rooms right on the beach -- and that is what it is all about. The rooms are large and have nice balconies that overlook the water. Things to consider -- it... More

Rooms need updated! Some rooms look better then others. Ours still had old cabinets, carpet should be removed because it feels wet. The new porch and privacy walls were nice to see! The cleaning staff are very nice, friendly and helpful. The beach is the best!! Wifi does not work in the end rooms. We had to go outside to... More

This was the second time this month that we stayed here. Over the winter they made some updates. The best one was privacy walls between all of the balconies. It was so nice to step out to enjoy the ocean without all eyes on you. And as always they are pet friendly.
