All the rooms in this motel are smoking rooms so stay there only if you can tolerate the odor. No one in my family smokes. We had no other option as far as accommodation so we ended up staying here. It wasn't too bad. The location is ideal, close to the beach, restaurants and mini golf.

We stopped here just to check it out. The staff was very friendly. The owners let us look at the room before reserving. The room was clean as was the bathroom. The king bed was comfortable and there were all the comforts we needed for the night. The pool was very nice and well maintained. We would stay there again.

We expected the rooms to be dated, based on the overall appearance of the motel, and that was okay with us. The room was clean and offered a king sized bed with a coffee maker, microwave, and mini-fridge. What we didn't expect was for the bed to be short sheeted since there was no fitted sheet, just two flat sheets....

Christina Cox reviewed in the last week My husband and I booked a 3 night stay at this motel to meet up with family for a long weekend. Upon arrival after a 5 hour drive we were informed that we were not allowed to check into our room until 6 pm ( check in is 3) because a television production...

We found this place on Trip advisor and decided to give it a try since the reviews were good, they allow pets and we needed it on short notice. We were very disappointed in this place and found the reviews to be not at all representative to what we experienced this past weekend. The only exception was the friendly and...

But.....If you're looking for an affordable place with a friendly and accommodating staff, this is it !! The rooms may be outdated but they're clean. It's just a short walk to he beach, grocery, bars, shops and eateries. A friend & I...

The parking lot will get tight on a busy weekend but it's tree covered,it's nice to come out to a cool car. The room has a fridge,sink,utensils...

I was surprised by their rates when all the other hotels on Oak Island went way up in price for the summer. The hotel is in a nice area, and the building and grounds are well-maintained. The problem my family had was that every room was a smoking room, and the smell was overpowering. We are all allergic to smoke,...

I was traveling through the area and came across this place and was glad I did. A small motel, not a chain, is the perfect place to rest after travel. I try to support small businesses whenever I can, so this fit the bill. The office staff is by far, the best selling point of this motel. The rooms were...

“Pick a second floor room, so that you will not hear the people above you walking at all hours of the night. The upper floor also has a railing where towels and bathing suits can be hung.”
