This was the first time to Cape Hatteras and we loved it. The motel does look older and needs a little work and updated. The dressers had a funny smell to the inside so we didnt use them. The bathroom was huge which was nice...More

Thank you for the review. The pool is across the street because over the years our pool has been taken away by the ocean! Having it on the sound side is a bit safer! We know we are older and not fancy but we are...More

What’s best about this motel is that it’s on the beach, literally. The rest is something to be desired. It is dated and in need of remodeling. There’s nothing worse than spending a rainy couple days at the shore in a room that’s dated and...More

The location was good but the rooms were very old, dirty carpet, large mounds of sand were all over the property. The buildings looked beaten up, kitchen was old, rusty refrigerator, 3 plates, family of six. Do not recommend 😕More

Simple room that is nostalgic to old beach houses with a million dollar view. You Cannot beat the location right on the beach. The only complaint is that the crashing surf may keep you up at night.we will be back, highly recommended.

The gentleman above was correct - I think you are thinking of Corolla. We do have Beach horseback rides in Buxton but that's something different than what you're thinking of. The horses on Ocracoke are viewed from an... More

We allocate one car per room on the oceanfront. Additional cars, trailers, etc. can be placed on the soundside. Thanks for asking.
