Had a great stay at this motel in Nags Head. Close to fishing pier and outlets, gorgeous quiet part of the beach. Lots of restaurants nearby. Friendly management and clean facilities. Huge king room with a great view from the 3rd floor.

Overall a good value with beautiful view and clean room. Sheets and towels were clean and king room was updated. Indoor pool area was nice. Plenty of parking and a few restaurants in walking distance. Coffeepot was broken and dirty in room i saw housekeeping they exchanged for a good one right sway. No elevator 3 floors, no housekeeping asked if we needed towels or took our trash in 3 days. I understand not coming in during covid but they could offer a basket to sit outside for dirty/ clean exchange like i have seen other motels do. There is a mechanical lift to move luggage and groceries up and down but they didn’t tell us at check in about it we found out in time for check out thankfully and didn’t have to lug it all down 3 flights. Common areas need some improved housekeeping like sweeping around indoor pool same trash moldy tabletop and cig butts for 3 days untouched. I would stay again in this motel-but they can do better with minimal effort.

We had not been back to the outer banks since 2009 so we decided to stay at the same place we did 11 years ago. Decor had really not changed much in 11 years but we didn’t mind as long as room is clean, which it was. Indoor pool and hot tub are awesome and spacious. Great location on the beach but recommend the 2nd or 3rd floors for the best views. We had a very relaxing vacation. Great value for the money. Our only 2 complaints are the beds are way too soft, and the new management could be more welcoming and friendly. The maintenance men that were painting outside were way more friendly than the owners. Overall we had a great time.

Sure wish I’d read the reviews before we booked! I basically had to re-clean the room, and that’s not good during this COVID-19 craziness. There was splatters all over the mirror from others brushing their teeth, there was pubic hair in the soap dish in the bathtub and the overall condition of the room was very poor. To say this hotel has seen better days is being extremely kind. The floor was clean and the towels smelled of bleach which is about the only good things I can say. Way overpriced for the condition of the room. It’s on the beach but you don’t really get a view because of the dunes. We made it one night and checked out for a better place. Do your homework and book elsewhere.

I made a reservation for a top floor efficiency with a view on July 5th for Sept 7th-11th. I got a conformation showing that. When I arrived they stuck me in a regular room, #1 , behind the dunes. No efficiency. So just because you reserve a room you may not get what you reserved. Don't know whos fault. The motel or Booking.com or maybe they thought they would lose a sell of someone else wanting the efficiency and figured since I was traveling solo they could move me. The guy at the deck just sort of laughed about the screw up. The room was ok. Toilet seat was about to fall off but they are working on improving the motel now with the new owners. Plan on fighting flies. (no fly swatter in the room)

Room Tip: Won't matter. You'll get what they give you. High dunes. Top Floor offers only view.
