This property is older. The staff is limited. The amenities are nonexistent. Still the best vacation we've ever had! You MUST try to get the Honeymoon Suite. It has nothing to do with your current romantic state and everything to do with room location. If you are looking to relax and totally reset your life this is the place to...

Older motel located on a very quiet end of beach. Rooms are clean, views are awesome. Lots of steps, so be aware. Will comeback!! Our rom was a smoking room and pet friendly, but had no smell. Great value!

I have stayed here about eight times and have reservations for July. The rooms are not fancy and this is not a four star hotel, however, it is my idea of Heaven on earth. It is quiet and peaceful with the best beachfront views I have ever seen. You are ON THE OCEAN. Not a mile or parking lot or...

The Sea Vista is one of a handful of motels on Topsail Island. It is an older motel but the best on the island. The location is great with rooms right on the beach -- and that is what it is all about. The rooms are large and have nice balconies that overlook the water. Things to consider -- it...

Rooms need updated! Some rooms look better then others. Ours still had old cabinets, carpet should be removed because it feels wet. The new porch and privacy walls were nice to see! The cleaning staff are very nice, friendly and helpful. The beach is the best!! Wifi does not work in the end rooms. We had to go outside to...

This was the second time this month that we stayed here. Over the winter they made some updates. The best one was privacy walls between all of the balconies. It was so nice to step out to enjoy the ocean without all eyes on you. And as always they are pet friendly.

We always rent room 312 because of it being pet friendly and the owners keep it well maintained. We were pleasantly surprised with the renovations so that now every balcony is private, railings have been replaced. Views from our balcony are magnificent and we had the motel and beach almost to ourselves. Ask for senior discount (if eligible); it will...

Our room was nicely appointed. Mini fridge, microwave. Ocean front and the sunrises are amazing. The staff was courteous and cleaned our room every day. We stayed on the top floor and yes it has the best views of the ocean but it is backbreaking carrying luggage up the steps. Keep that in mind. The path to the beach is...

This motel is nice enough. It's right on the beach and that's a real plus. The room was clean, but a bit out dated. Everyone I dealt with there was really nice, and the rates are fair. There is no swimming pool and I didn't see a lot in the area to do other than the beach, but it felt...

We had reserved a room for our son and 2 year old cheweeni. This motel was suppose to be so "pet friendly". We all went into the office to check in and a rude big older man was at the desk. He takes one look at us and shakes his head. He walks slowly toward me and my dog who...
