    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.

    I agree, the carpets should have been vacuumed and housekeeping should service rooms every day unless you have your do not disturb sign. I am sorry that the experience wasn't as you had hoped and not one that is typical of a stay here.
