We stayed here for a night and had a great time. Booking the room was easy and the staff member i spoke to was very helpful as i asked about rooms for 3 families. The pool was clear and the shallow attached kids pool was a nice surprise. We had room 4 next to the office and it had 2...

We stayed at the Sea Foam in July of 2014. We had a great time! It's a blast from the past!! Rarely do you find a family owned, family oriented motel that is clean and well maintained. But this is it! Our door opened up right onto the sand dunes, where the kids played in the sand. We loved sitting...

We stayed here and had a great time. It was a rainy weekend, but we still enjoyed ourselves. It is near the beach (we can see it from our room), has an outside shower for self and feet along the path from the beach to the hotel, and has many amenities: Pool, shuffleboard, Cornhole, coffee, free wifi, etc. Our room...

We have been staying here for 4 years now and my grandkids won't stay anywhere else. We have met so many nice families staying there. We enjoy the laid back feeling, never rushed and don't even feel like we have to lock the door. We have always had great service from the front desk and the housekeeping staff. Only wish...

We decided to stay in town for a second night and the Travelodge we had been at the night before was full. This was one of the cheapest mom and pop motels with a vacancy so we checked it out. The room was located on the second floor in the front corner facing the parking lot. We could have had...

We've just returned from a two night stay, and wish we would have booked another. Sea Foam isn't a new motel, but it shows its age gracefully and has so much character. From our enclosed balcony we had a perfect view of the beach, and screen doors on either end of the room allow for a constant breeze. In the...

My daughters and I reserved a room at the Seafoam in August 2013 based on photos and speaking with staff by phone. When we arrived we were disgusted and freaked out. The place was extremely run down, in need of every possible update. We were too tired to look elsewhere and decided to try it for one night. We slept...

We just returned from a week long stay with our eleven year old granddaughter and had a great time. The hotel is not fancy, but it has the best location - right on the beach. The beds were comfortable, so we slept great. One night was a little cool out with a nice breeze and we opened the sliding glass...

During my husband's shower, he was constantly scalded & frozen by the variant water temperature. We called the front desk at 6pm and were sent to voicemail. I left a message asking for assistance with the water temp. I also explained on my voicemail that we have an infant and a child that we are unable to bathe for fear...

Sea Foam Motel is a pleasant change from the predictable, cookie-cutter hotel/motel chains. The motel is located on a beautiful stretch of beach and is close to Jennette Pier and plenty of great restaurants. The next time we're in Nags Head, we plan to book a room at the motel.
