Clean inexpensive motel located on the beach. Nothing fancy but it is affordable compared to others in the area. Son and I have stayed here 2 summers in a row and the staff are pleasant, rooms were always clean, with basic amenities. Has a pool but we have yet to use it.

We had a nice visit to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday. Clean and convenient oceanfront location. We asked to check out at 12 instead of 11 since this was a special celebration. One employee said "to check the next morning, but if it was up to her she would say yes." The next day the employee rudely said "No" with...

Hotel had a great ocean front view and easy access. Nice pool too. It was clean and comfortable. Wifi, cable and frig worked great. That's all I ask for! Just wish the weather had cooperated! Hurricane Matthew was on the way.

Have stayed in this hotel 4 times in the last 25 years and will keep coming back as long as it's here. Tried a few others places here on the Outer Banks but this is my favorite. It's clean and well run with a nice pool and good staff.

This motel has been around for a while, so it has some wear and tear. But, it is very nice. I love the ocean view. I would highly recommend it if you're going with your spouse or a few friends. Oh, it does have wifi.

This small motel is located directly on the beach at Nags Head, NC. They have about 25 rooms including several with full kitchens. What sets it apart from a lot of the other older motels is the care and upkeep, especially the lovely grounds. Beautiful flowers, trees & grass. The swimming pool is a wonderful place to relax.

Visited several days with my girlfriend. Nice beach access and pool . At the lower end of Nags Head around mile marker 16; convenient to most things, but away from the kids and crowds. Rooms not fancy but modern. Balconies on upper floors are a nice touch.

Outdated and dingy, the room smelled musty and mildewed, and the carpet spongy underfoot (I wore my flip flops fearing direct contact). Thank goodness for the powerful AC, though it was the loudest thing on the planet. Beds were sunken in the middle, bedspreads old and filthy, and everything inside and out was corroded. We spotted a few tiny ants...
