It's been over 25 years since we vacationed in OBX and we are so happy that we stayed in this motel. We stayed in room #109 which is right on the water and is actually a motel room. It was very clean and had two large beds, a nice sized refrigerator freezer and microwave. Each day our beds were made...

I have stayed here several times over the years. The motel has recently updated all rooms to queen beds. Everything was clean and in working order. One thing I never see in reviews is information about odors in the rooms. I can tell you that these rooms do not have the musty smell you get in some places. I just...

So the selling point of this place is it's location to the beach, your on it! But that said your also right on top of your neighbor too since the beach front is pretty shallow to the rooms. We had children and their were others drinking and smoking on the beach near us so that was a turn off. The...

When you stay in a hotel at The Outer Banks of North Carolina, your expectations need to match the lifestyle. The Outer Banks Motel embodies that unique, relaxed way of living. I stayed in an efficiency one row back from the breaking surf of high tide. That's right, you really are almost in the ocean due the constant beach erosion....

Made a quick reservation for Labor Day weekend and there were able to accommodate us. We are staying in cottage #9 and love the beach view. Very clean and large 2 bedroom, 2 bath with full kitchen accommodations. We had a slight AC problem and the issue was addressed immediately. We went out for dinner and came back and the...

We stayed at one of the cottages (White Oaks) at the Outer Banks Motel from 8/5-8/9/15. It was a great stay. The cottage was three bedrooms with a full kitchen and two full baths, We are a family of 7 so we needed the extra room. The cottage was about a mile from the motel. We packed up the car...

We have stayed at the Outer Banks Motel for the past eight years. Love staying in cottage 107 or 108 on the water. Sitting on the deck enjoying the beautiful sunrises and sunsets and magnificent lightening shows in the evening when a storm is moving in. Miles of beach to walk and not alot of people. Love getting shrimp prepared...

As with most motels on the Outer Banks, they have an old school mom-n-pop feel and they are not a 5 star Hilton, but thats not what I'm looking for. We love the 50's feel of the old motels. The Outer Banks Motel is cozy and cute. We stayed in room 101 for 2 nights, king size bed, decent sized...

Rented cabin #100. Great rental with 3 bedrooms (each with a full size bed & a twin), a full kitchen, and 2 full baths. Had wi-fi. Rooms are clean, not luxurious - it is dated but we didn't go for luxury, we wanted the beach...Did not visit the pool but it looked decent - families with small children would enjoy...

The location was perfect for us on the north end of town. If you want to get away from the few people hanging out on the beach out front you can literally walk 100 yards north and it's all empty sand dunes. It was very mellow out front though so we fished and surfed straight out. The rooms are dated...
