When we first checked in the room wasn't ready, I called the front desk and they got right on it! With in 30 minutes the room was spot less. I will definitely be here next year! The room was a little but dated but everything was functional. See you next year!

We rented an ocean front suite for 1 night on our weeklong tour of the Outer Banks, and absolutely loved this place. Our favorite stay of the whole trip. Already planning a return trip for next summer. Room was right on the beach. Rockers out front. We watched the most beautiful sunrise of our whole trip here. Suite was 2...

Stayed here in 2014 and loved it! Could not get any closer to the ocean. Beautiful views and the sound of the ocean was wonderful. Would highly recommend. Went to Myrtle Beach this year and although it was nice, liked the Outer Banks, Buxton, and this motel much better!

Nice spot, but can get a little hairy when the tide comes up. Beautiful peaceful view and fish at your feet! Rooms are clean and the company is always fun on Hatteras. RElax in the sun, enjoy the waves and remember why you love the island

One of our favorite places to stay on Cape Hatteras National Seashore! Oceanfront <3 Nice Staff, Clean spacious rooms, not fancy, but nice, and comfortable. Views and Sunrises so spectacular one must see to comprehend! We highly recommend this hotel, and we've stayed here a half dozen times since 2009. Each time a wonderful experience!

We stayed at this hotel specifically so that we could sleep to the sounds of the ocean waves. You really can't get much closer during high tide. It is not a polished up, fancy hotel. I didn't expect carpet on the floors but I'm glad it was there. The people over us walked around all night. The sunrise from the...

We were hoping to find a charming place to stay on the Outer Banks. We did not want to be in a chain or anything like one. We are on the 3rd floor of this shingled building right on the beach. The views are fantastic! And the sound of the surf is a perfect accompaniment to the view, to going...

We were making a driving tour of the Outer Banks. We had one night at this hotel and didn't have enough time to judge the full experience of staying here. We had a third floor ocean front room.
