“Bath is great, harbor motel not so much.”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We stayed in Bath (oldest town in NC) just before Thanksgiving after Hurricane Sandy left us without other options to catch a ferry to Ocracoke Island. This remote town is a hidden gem and we loved its historic sites and timeless beauty. We called in advance to reserve the room. We arrived at 3:30 p.m. as scheduled. Eventually, one of the owners arrived with kids in tow. She sent us to a room that was really filthy. It looked like a group of hunters had camped for a few days and it stank of smoke, though it was supposed to be "no smoking." When I returned the key and told her it was not clean, she sent me to another room across the hall. It was clean-er, but very run down and not kept well. My husband actually slept in his clothes on top of the bedspread that night - a first for him. The heater was not designed to heat the room, had no control knob and struggled in the colder than usual weather. The bathroom shower placement under the eaves made a shower a painful experience for anyone over 5 ft. tall. The toilet was also tightly placed between the sink and tub. There were nice soaps and shampoos, go figure! There was a nice view over the river from the deck and the grounds are probably really nice in warmer weather. But everything cried out for a good scrub down, a lot of repair. I can't recommend this place, except if you were staying on your own boat tied up to their wharf.

We have now done a extensive renovation For the motel . We are now going into year 17 . Our larger rooms have screened ares and are worth spending the additional money. If you enjoy the water and harbor views you will be happy with your stay.

5 mile waterfront view from your porch, a unique location steps away from the water - tons of activities for all ages (sailing, fishing, watersports) located in historic Bath, NC.

Certianly not 5 star accomadations, however, this is a great out of the way quite place on the water - we enjoyed the sun sets, and cooking out under the pavilion.

There is a long dock - with mostly sailboats (not much traffic at the marina, as there is no boat ramp, or fuel).

I would reccomend this as a fun family, or couple get away for those interested in outdoor activities, the town is small, but has some very unique history, and great views.
