Reviewed February 27, 2011

My husband, children, sister and I stayed again this past August 2010. Our "usual" room had new carpet and flooring in the kitchen. It looked much better, but we enjoy staying here anyway. The only issue that might have been was that they apparently double booked our room. We called on the way to confirm, and when we were getting close received a call asking if we were still on our way as another family had also showed up. It worked out for us as we had called earlier in the day to reconfirm our reservations. However, we felt bad for the people who arrived 10 minutes prior to us and had also booked the same room. They had to go elsewhere as the motel was completely booked and it was very late. All in all though, we love staying here. The price is great and the location is perfect.

Although this motel is not the Ritz, it was pretty decent for the price. We were aware of this motel as my husband and his friends often hunt during the off season in NC and this is where they have stayed. My husband and our son along w/ my brother stayed when we arrived in the Outerbanks on a Friday evening (we couldn't check into our beach house until Saturday). The hotel was fairly clean and our room had a small kitchen with a refridgerator which was convenient. We could park our vehichle right outside our door which was also nice. It was nice to stay right near the Outerbanks so that the next morning we didn't have a far drive at all and could spend the day of our check in shopping and hanging out on the beach. It was also very convenient to restaurants and eating. If you're looking for luxury, this is not your place and yes it could use some updates...however, if you aren't picky and are looking for something comfortable and affordable, this is your place.

The motel is advertised as clean and reasonable. The "standard" room was mostly clean although there were two hairs in the bathtub. However, the structures were in a state of marked disrepair. Whatever monies the hotel owners have earned, little or none have gone back into to the motel. For example, the blind on the front window was broken off to where one could see the outside (and be seen by them). The blinds didn't sit in the window properly so that there was a big gap on the side. Anyone walking by could view the bed. Much of the trim was stained, chipped or broken. The paneling on the walls was bowed with the inner wall visable at a corner joint where the seams were coming apart. The carpet was stained and full of cigarette burns. (We found out that all rooms were smoking -- a real problem to someone with allergies. The air in the room had a stale old cigarette musty odor.) The ceiling of the bathroom had been repaired, but not very well. And part of the bathtub was rusted through.
My husband and I were on a budget and made reservations sight unseen. The price was just under $60 with taxes, way too high a price for this motel.
