“Great Spot for our Weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Close to everything and very clean. Half the price of other places in OBX. Park in front of your room and enjoy the rocking chairs on the porch. Quiet & a great place for couples without the noise of a pool or kid activities. The owners are super nice. We'll be back!

Four stars for what it is: a simple, comfortable, neat, clean older motel where you park in front of your room. Rocking chair, small fridge in the room. Flat screen tv. Very nice proprieter. Price is less than others in the area.

This is a very friendly family-run motel with a folksy atmosphere. Even though it has a slightly run-down feeling it is clean and neat. We had been on the road for a week and needed a laundromat which the hotel staff pointed out not very far away. They also recommended an Italian restaurant (La Dolce Vita) across the street, which was part of a different hotel. We stayed in the Dare Haven Motel in order to be close to the outdoor drama "The Lost Colony." However, the area had horrendous thunder and lightning storms and the play was cancelled the evening we were there. Fortunately, we had bought cancellation insurance and were out only the $10 for the insurance, not the price of the tickets.

Yes, this is a one star hotel. Yes, it is pet friendly with all of the issues you might imagine. However, if you are a dog lover, you live with these issues daily. The hotel is run by the granddaughter of the founder and she is a fantastic hostess! She went out of her way to attend to our every request. You can't beat this value for budget wise, pet loving travellers.

My husband and I stayed here for Valentines day weekend. We were very pleased with the renovated room that we got. The room was very comfortable with a flat screen t.v and decorated with beach decor. I found the room very clean and the staff very friendly. I also liked that we had an option of smoking or non smoking rooms. We also liked that the hotel was pet friendly as alot of hotels are not now. We will stay here again! Loved the price and love the location!

after a harrowing experience, we hit the road, and couldn't find anything on a saturday night in the outer banks. with our dog, most spots were either gone, or over $200. we asked locals all kinds of questions, and thankfully some of the folks in corner stores, turned us on to this island, and a few suggestions. we saw this spot, and loved the name. We went for it. they take dogs, they even have a dog run, and the lady at the front desk, debbie? was over the top friendly. the room? quaint, clean, and a nice change of pace...

we can still hit the beach in the am, and she even suggested a nice spot where our pooch can run. free. this just fixed all the bad that was goin on with our bad luck of cheap hotel rooms. I could spend a summer here in this room, and eat at la dolce vita across the street.

of course, by the end of the summer? I'd have to go on a diet.

thank you dare haven motel.

Not a lot of money, but you don't mind spending a little more if you get good service. Office personnel is nice but can't stand the smell of urine in front office. I love animals but let them out once in a while. Spend a llittle of the money you overcharge to update the towels and rooms. No ammenities at all. Just spend a little more and stay where you can feel clean.
