our family recently made reservations to this place and just as we got across from the mainland we received a devastating phone call that our cousin was killed in a tragic accident. we immediately knew we could not stay for the week and needed to get back home (which is 10 hours away) we went on in person to the office to tell her our story and try and at least reschedule our stay to a later date . the owner then basically said I'm sorry its just business ... we I am loosing money from you canceling your weeks stay. she did not give ANY of our deposit back or let us reschedule without making us pay again . we are all just in awe that she was so cold to us and our situation. shame on you ! in all total we lost $900

Stayed: July 2013, traveled with family

My family stayed at the outer banks motel in August of 2012. I wasnt to sure what to expect because the rates are so much cheaper than other places I have priced. My whole family was very pleased with the view and everything else. The beach is not overly crowded and just steps from our room! The swimming pool was great! The room was a nice place to retire to after you have exhausted yourself out, not fancy but more than sufficient. I can not wait until we can return again!!!

Have stayed here many times--as we have a dog and they are pet friendly. Best view location down there-- Carol Dillion (owner) is top local historian--wonderful family feel--great service--very clean--very friendly--love it. If you want to stay in a place that has simple, basic old OBX feeling--this is the place for you. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Tell them what kind of view you want. Some rooms have better views than others. Save money on eating out by getting a room with a microwave or kitchen. Recommend Diamond Shoals Restaurant about 1 mile south.

I've stayed here twice. Once last Fourth of July when my car broke down in Avon. I was in a real lurch and these folks put me up for the night while my car was repaired. They were so awesome! My room was large, clean, and just what I needed. Because they were so awesome, I brought my daughter there on vacation last September. Once again, we had a great room and thoroughly enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Next time we'll take advantage of the free use of the boats for crabbing on the sound side. You can't get a better deal. And as a bonus, they're locally owned and just across the street from The Shipwreck!

Our family has been staying at the Outer Banks Motel for over 20 years. We have made many friends through the years with families that still come to the Outer Banks Motel. We have seen many changes and upgrades to the Outer Banks Motel. The main reason we keep coming back is we are treated like family. The Outer Banks Motel is clean, convenient, steps away from the beach and very comfortable. We have stayed in several of the different rooms/cottages. Our favorites are the beach houses. We had many opportunities to stay in the huge houses on the beach, but this is where our family chooses to stay.
Thank you Mrs. Dillon and staff for all of our wonderful memories we have made and continue to make at The Outer Banks Motel!!!
See you on August 3, 2013.
