Another great stay at Tiffany's. As always, it was immaculate, charming, and comfortable. It's an older place, which I like - it reflects the down-home, out-of-the-way feel of Surf City/ Topsail Island, NC - and everything is in working order. The buildings are attractive and the grounds are tidy and appealing. All of the office staff I have met are polite and professional, and most of them are warm, cheerful and outgoing. I've stayed at Tiffany's several times a year, during all four seasons, for about six years now. It's great to have a place you know you can stay at Topsail that is so reliably safe, clean, cute, well-maintained, and affordable. Out of probably a good twelve or so stays over the years, there was just one single time that a housekeeper had missed a couple of things too small to mention. Otherwise it's always spotless. The suites in the old building are simple, pretty, and homey. The new single rooms are modern, attractive, and very nicely furnished. I love this place. The reviewer below with complaints should have reported the towel shortage, lack of hangers & stain on the sofa. I find office staff to be responsive, and housekeeping staff to be friendly and approachable. I agree there are flat pillows and plain blankets, (only in the old building though) the toiletries & toilet paper are cheap, and the pots & pans, etc., in the suite kitchens are hit or miss. I bring a bag of my own kitchen stuff to be sure I have what I need, and of course my own toiletries, and some nicer toilet paper. It's no problem to me since I'm sure it keeps costs down. Don't stay here if you want a chain hotel. The $175 that guest is complaining about is for what is basically a roomy little apartment, a block from the Atlantic ocean! You can see the water from the rooms, and the windows open so you can hear the surf. The old building has wide wooden walkways with benches outside the rooms, plants and flowerpots all around, 2 pools, and an open veranda furnished with white wicker furniture on the 3rd floor overlooking the marshes and the Inter-coastal Waterway. The new building, as someone else mentioned, has a high, sea-view sunning deck. You can see the sound from there too, so you can watch sunrise or sunset. The public beach access is literally one block down the street. Awhile back, before I discovered Tiffany's, I stayed at another cheap motel on Topsail (The Loggerhead Inn - ugh!) It was dank and cramped, and the clientele turned a little rowdy and kind of scary at night. There is a completely different feel at Tiffany's; bright and airy during the day, snug and peaceful at night. I highly recommend Tiffany's Motel.
