I stay here every time I go to the Outer Banks. It's a small family owned motel. No frills but clean and friendly. Great location not far from the beach and fishing piers and you can cook your catch onsite.

In hindsight I agree with most of the reviews I read. This motel would be ideal for someone who doesn't plan to spend a lot of time in the room. The room I stayed in needs work. The nightstand had drill holes in it, a...More

Lodging for the area was affordable in peak season at 112.00 for two queen beds per taxes per night. Beds seemed more like full size beds. When we checked in, our room smelled very musty. Either we got used to it or going in and...More

We made reservations here because our favorite place had no rooms. I have stayed here before but it was 15-20 years ago. We knew it was a "bare bones" type of place BUT it needs a lot of work. The location is great & they...More

Hi Mistymoon, All of us here love pets and we all have pets, we can't bring them to work with us since we are a pet free motel. We have expressed this issue and I'm sure TripAdvisor is doing its best.
