What a really nice small Motel this is. Our room was very clean & well decorated. I think this was the most comfortable bed that I've slept in away from home. Owners were so helpful & friendly. We use to stay here in the 70's when it was Bear Lodge, so glad it is still operating. I can tell a lot of love & hard work has gone into keeping this gem going. We will certainly be staying again & will not wait so long next time.

Room Tip: "Honeymoon" Room overlooks the water......beautiful views.

Grabbed a last minute reservation here on Memorial Day Weekend and glad we did. This hotel is just over the bridge from Swansboro, so away from the crush of the busier parts of this area. But it is perfectly located on the intercoastal waterway. You can dock a boat right at the hotel, or launch a kayak (your own or a rental next door) basically steps away from your room.

The rooms are not large, but they are very clean and comfortable. And if you want to get outside you can sit on a grassy area. Coffee and doughtnuts were served one morning during our stay.

The owner Dave is a constant presence on the grounds. Walking around barefooted and making sure everyone is having a good time.

I can't wait for the opportunity to go back.

Stopped here on an intracoatal waterway trip though NC after reading great Trip Advisor reviews. This is the find of the waterway. Docked just steps from the room. Dave supplied us charcoal and we used the grill by the water as we watched the sunset.
Rooms are immaculate! We enjoyed meeting Dave and Kay. So nice to patronize a family owned business with folks that obviously enjoy what they do.
Anything you want they will make available and treat you like family. Don't miss this jewel!

Dave and Kay are wonderful people and they treated us like family. The establishment is very clean and well maintained inside and out. We enjoyed our stay. We are looking forward to coming here again soon.

Stayed with Dave and Kay recently from Sat. - Wed. Searched Google Maps looking for places and this one appeared to be good. What a great experience we will readily seek again. Positive attributes of this motel include: Quiet (rooms and environment)...Beds more comfortable than ones I have slept in at fine hotels...Friendly (both Dave and the fellow guests we met were very friendly)...Convenient to the beach and other amenities. Negative attributes: NONE! Folks, for the deal you get, you would be crazy not to stay here.

Room Tip: If you want waterfront views, select the top and bottom floors on the back of the motel. These have window views of the Inland Waterway.
