Friendly and accommodating staff, very outgoing and willingness to help and direct. There are plenty of places to eat and next to awesome restaurants. Although it does not have complete view of the beach, The beach it's just a few steps away! Will stay here again!

This was in the best location to do what my husband and I wanted to do. The staff is super friendly and the lookout is something not to miss, the view is great! The rooms are exactly what you need to do the essentials you need to do at the place your staying unless you plan to spend every waking...

On a recent family vacation I stayed at this motel in Buxton, which was near the lighthouse. This motel was not worth the money spent.The motel beds slept horribly bad and the furnishings were just as bad. This motel needs a major overhaul.

I have gone to this inn before-well obviously. I went with family. The rooms were small and had a strange odor. The lobby had a bit of a smell too, but the lobby was okay. The bathrooms were dirty. The shower was VERY dirty and was crusty all around the edges. When I had just walked into the bathroom, the...

I had been traveling with my daughter and needed a place to sleep for the night. As a last minute pinch option, it was accomatble. Overall the room was small/average sized room and fine for two, no more. The couch, chairs, bathroom and rug were dated. The chair fabric material was falling apart and the rug in spots had hair...

I was very disappointed in this hotel. It was run down and the room was very damp. the bathroom was dirty, the staff at the front desk were very nice. Only one food place close by which was ok. You could walk to the beach which was a plus

If you want a decent hotel for a decent price with a pool than definitely the place to stay. Very clean. Nice observation deck. Very close to ocean. Staff is very helpful. Will definitely stay again. Some of the rooms on the 2nd floor ocean side has limited ocean view.

This place is great if you like moldy, damp rooms, ripped chairs, and gross smells. This hotel is overpriced for what it offers. The beds are uncomfortable. The water smells odd. This place is disgusting and I don't recommend it to anyone.

This place is run down and stinky. The odor of the room hits you as soon as you open the door. The furniture is ratty and falling apart. No in room Wi-Fi, have to go to the lobby for Wi-Fi. Not oceanfront (but a short walk to the beach). The observation tower is the only nice thing about this place....

The place is a pit. There was fungus on the walls, bugs in the room, furniture falling apart, and rust in the tub. No breakfast offered during your stay and from the look of the place that may be a blessing (wouldn't want to eat anything they made on premises). I wouldn't let my dogs stay here and I certainly...

“This place is away from Corolla, NC. So travelling from here to Corolla will take 2 hours. But you get nice less crowed beach here.”

“None of the rooms have an "ocean view" per say. But half the rooms overlook parking lot and the other half you can glimpse the ocean.”
