“Great location, clean room.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2011

Got into orcacoke late and coordinated with the staff to pick up keys. Room was small but clean. The room we had was beach themed with wood panel walls. Sort of dated but it was clean (cannot stress now important it is for a place to be clean) Bathroom was recently remodelled. Great stay.

Needed a reasonbly priced, clean and comfortable room for one night on Ocracoke due to an early ferry ride in the morning at the end of our vacation in Hatteras.

So we spent the day in Ocracoke visiting small shops and eating.

The motel itself is well maintained and managed. It is a small familty operated business that happens to be on the market. The room was clean, bathroom spotless and the grounds themselves were also well maintained. It is two blocks off of Highway 12, which is a plus. As anyone that has been to the island knows this is the main thoroughfare through town.

We loved our recent trip to Ocracoke and and a big part of that was the Sand Dollar Motel. It was just what we were looking for -- close to everything but a little off the beaten path, clean rooms, great atmosphere, and a good price. We will definitely be back there. One tip -- walk down the street to the crepe stand for fresh crepes just like you would get in France!

Haven't been to Ocracoke for close to 20 years, but spent a considerable amount of time here as a child, and wanted to share this unspoiled island with my kids. The Sand Dollar Motel was a joy! Much like the island, only a few creature comfort updates- anything fancy would not fit this island. Room was clean, staff was friendly, and the pool was quite refreshing after a day at the beach. The location is perfect- short walks to most places you need to get to! If you are looking for a quiet, clean, economical place to stay, the Sand Dollar is your answer!
