The Sand Dollar Motel is a small family owned motel.We are on the beach side with a short walk to the beach.Quiet and safe area. Mile and half to main intersection of Atlantic Beach. We have regular rooms with 1 or 2 double beds.All rooms have a small fridge and coffee maker. We also have apartments with full kitchens, separate bedroom. Great for families. We try our very best to make our guest comfortable and enjoy their stay with us. We have clean and affordable rooms with a family atmosphere. Sorry no pets!

This is a very old motel, it is clean, beds are comfortable, staff is cordial. No frills, there are notes posted all over the room on the walls,(a little strange) Convenient location skimpy on towels.

We arrived and while the exterior did not look that good, we have learnt not to judge the book by its cover. Formal ties over, we proceeded to room 110 - it was tiny with one queen bed, a musty smell and no Wi-fi access...More

Was in Morehead City recently and needed a quick place to stay. The room was strictly designed for fishermen or fisherwomen. It was bare bones, no frills, fairly clean. The staff was friendly. I probably won't stay again because I like more creature comforts.

We were pleasantly pleased with the Sand Dollar. It was CLEAN and quiet. The shower tile was a blast from the past! Very short walk to beach access.... GREAT inexpensive find. Also recommended Crab Claw restaurant for dinner and the food and service were great.

Less than a few hours of our check in we received a call from the motel that a pipe burst in the bathroom of our reserved room. Manager told us there was nothing he could do but refund us the money. Which took 6 days....More

Sorry, we are not a pet friendly motel. Our other property is, if you want to check with them Econo Lodge Crystal Coast, in Morehead City. 3 miles from the beach. Lorie L. Manager
