We stayed 2 nights at the end of April, trying to get some good R&R. First, the motels location is great. It is ocean front and very close to Kure Beach Pier. We could actually walk through the back parking lot to get to it. They also have a private walkway down to the beach itself. They have plenty of parking too. Introduced this year was wifi, which is a big plus if you are vacationing with teenagers like me! The room was spacious and clean. I liked that it didn't have carpet (most beach motels that do make your feet black... Not sure what that's about.) We stayed on the first floor and had a lil "balcony" outside the sliding glass door with 2 rocking chairs. Perfect for watching the sunrise. They also have a nice size outdoor pool. We didn't use it because it was still quite chilly out. It appeared clean and well maintained. We didn't have much interaction with the staff because we didn't need to! The front desk clerk was very friendly, and the room was cleaned while we were gone. We are definitely making this "our motel" and will stay here every time we travel to Kure Beach.
