We have gone to this place for many many years. Recently...because of our number of guests increasing, we have moved to a house. But we try to visit when we are on OBX. Miss Dillon and her staff are great...like family. Clean...convenient...great place to stay!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 June 2016

I'm 59 years old and my first trip to this motel was when I was 2. It's changed a lot since the old days because of devastating nor'easters. The cottage we used to stay in is now 50 feet beyond the breakers. But the Dillons (owners) have done a remarkable job remaking this wonderful place after every natural impact (i.e.,... More

We stayed in Unit 9 the second week of August. We loved it! Directly on the beach! Room had great view from the living area of the unit! Clean and met our needs! Traveled with three 21 and over peeps, a 10 year old, my husband and myself. The 21 yo's wanted more "night action." My husband and 10 yo... More

We spent a week at the Outer Banks Motel from 8-13-2016 until 8-20-2016. You can't get any closer to the beach and our kids loved swimming in the pool. As we stayed here in the past also, we didn't expect the accommodations to rival the Hilton. However, we did have a great time and the room was perfect for us.... More

I wanted to stay at the Motel, but it was booked out - so I ended up at Cottage F. The cottages are in the village, but a more appropriate description would be "directly on Highway 12". the place has no charm, no Wifi, no TV in the bedroom. Everything is pretty run down and I didn't feel safe at... More

We enjoyed our stay and picked this hotel because they allowed us to bring our dog. The unit was clean but dated. Glad to have a kitchen. This area of the outer banks is less crowded and less commercial so it is very relaxing.

Rooms are dated, but very clean. A few weird things going on with the furnishings - including a random professionally matter photo of a young girl "Stacy" hanging in the kitchen. Wifi connection isn't awesome unless you're right by the pool. The walls are very thin an we could hear our neighbors walking around and talking every night we were... More

We stayed in an ocean view cottage, and it was very nice. The room is very dated but very clean, and accommodating. The pool was great for I am not a beach person, definitely a great girls week was had by all!

Very tidy Little Cottage in Hatteras Village. The place has all the things one would need to cook dinner, or Just Hang out. If you want an ocean front, you had better book well in advance! Very Nice people operate this.
