“Great spring break”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

This was our third weekend staying in hotels and we were truly not expecting anything great. It was a relief to walk into,our efficiency and see a beach cottage style efficiency. The room was clean and comfortable. The walls had bead board wainscot, painted white and the walls were a beach green. The bathroom had no hint of mold the shower was very nicely tiled, the tub an wide porcelain one. Everything was clean. The kitchen had a small 4 burner stove and oven, microwave, full refrigerator, toaster and coffee pot. All the dishes, pots and pans were clean and in good condition. The owners were friendly and helpful. Will be back with my younger son for his break.

What a pleasant surprise the Sea Sound Motel in Rodanthe was! Just off the highway, but far enough back not to be disturbed by road noise. The staff was very friendly and gave helpful advice on places to eat and shop in the area. The room was large, with a microwave and mini refrigerator; great if your stay is for more than one night.. A nice eating area with table and chairs, as well. Very clean and well maintained; beds were very comfortable. Nice outdoor swimming pool. It's a short walk to the beach, so the rooms were very quiet. You can tell the property has been lovingly taken care of. Whether for a couple or a whole family, Sea Sound can accomodate both. I will definitely recommend the Sea Sound to anyone coming to the area.

Room Tip: No elevator, so take a lower room if stairs are a problem.

Loved, Loved, Loved, our stay at the Sea Sound Motel!!! If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is the place for you. We arrived early and actually got to check in 4 hours early. Never got to meet Fred, but Sharon, she is so sweet and extremely helpful. Loved the hospitality we had while we were there. Just a short walk to the beach, but trust me, its worth it. Rooms are very clean and perfect for couples in love just looking for a getaway. We can not wait to get back there, its the only place we will ever stay :)

Our first stay for family of 4, 2 adults, 2 kids ages 10 & 7 for 2 nights. The owners couldn't be nicer here. We had an efficiency 2 double bed room that worked well for us.

Positives:
* The kitchen had a full fridge, oven, & sink. We were able to cook meals in and that saved us $$$. There really aren't many restaurants and the ones here are mediocre and expensive, so it was nice to cook-in.
* Nice size, clean pool on property
* Walking distance to beach
* Clean, updated rooms
* Great price
* Easy to find

Negative (only one!)
* Wood floors that look nice but can be slippery. There are 2 rugs. You may want to move them so they are right where you come in the door to catch dirt/water. My son slipped, spilled his milk, resulting in a call to the owners to get a change of bedding. If you just move the 2 rugs, you will be fine.

We will definitely return and recommend this to others.

We were supposed to be staying in Nags Head and when reservations fell through I panicked! Tryed finding a hotel/motel wasn't happening- googled hotels in rodanthe knowing it was pretty close & read the reviews so I said let's try it! My kids loved the pool. Stayed in 101- very cute room! Two beds, TV, stove, microwave, sink & fridge. Wood floors & laminent. Bathroom was brand new & everything is up to date. 100 bucks for peak season, you cannot beat it. Staff was very nice & the room was spotless! Very good surprise to our seemingly wrecked weekend! Will stay again.

We normally rent a house when staying in Cape Hatteras. This year being on a budget and it only being our immidiate family (two adults one child) we decided to try this place out. We stayed 4 nights and it could not have been better. The owners as previously stated are more than friendly. You will not find hospitality like theirs at a major chain anywhere. We stayed in room 104. It was an efficiency with two beds. The rooms are not huge, but hey you are at the beach. The rooms were recently remodeled and they look wonderful and very up to date. The pool was a wonderful addition as well. This hotel is in a great location. Located within a nice walk on the beach to the Rodanthe Pier. In Cape Hatteras all of the hotels are independently owned and I have to say these folks here are doing it right! Save your money and stay here!
