We stayed at the Ocean House this past summer and our experience was good. It wasn't anything fancy, but for the money it was a fine place to relax and sleep at the end of the day. Other hotels in the area are more modern but they are pretty expensive. We will be returning next year!

After our recent stay at the Ocean House Motel we feel we must warn others to stay away. We decided to stay at the Ocean House for 2 reasons: direct access to the beach, and the fact that they cost about half what the other oceanfront motels charged, even though it was still very expensive.

The rooms are on the smaller side, but a nice place with direct access to the beach. Our rooms opened onto the beach, which is quite wide and nice. A nice step back to the old Carolina vacations...we'll be back next year!

“They will no longer be open after Sept. so dont go there. There are a couple of other old fashioned lower priced hotels in the area. They were all booked up though, so call ahead. \”

“Oceanside rooms have a view of a giant sand dune, however the patio area is a little more private. Best value is poolside.”
