The room was clean, had good water pressure in the shower, had chairs out on the wrap-around porch. They didn't mind us cutting up after a long ride. Very friendly staff. Very good price for the area. While it wasn't fancy, it was comfortable and we slept well.

We stayed at Dare Haven for 2 months due to work and I have to say the staff was very friendly and there whenever we needed anything. They weren't only staff but became our friends. It is a very peaceful atmosphere with quiet tenants. If I'm in this area again this will definitely be where I will stay.

My friend and her family arrived in the OBX a day before our house was ready in Nags Head. So we stayed for one night in Maneo. My friends' family stayed across the street from the Dare Haven at the Elizabethan Inn. They were sold out there so I searched for other nearby hotels when I came across the Dare...

People were really friendly! Rooms clean and quiet location. Excellent price. Stayed July 4 days. We packed items to hold us over so we only had to return to the room to shower to go out for the evening. Kids had room to play outside basketball and we took other games like checkers corn hole etc. pet friendly location also....

Check in was smooth, our room was ready at 12noon and the people were friendly...BUT.... upon entering the room, the horrible smell made my eyes water. We had somewhere to be so we dropped off our luggage in the room and left for the afternoon. We returned around 6pm and again the smell was horrible. Since we had dinner plans,we...

Decent rooms but the smell drove us nuts and carried on with us for several days. Didn't especially smell like tobacco smoke but mad sleeping difficult. Decent prices, decent beds and bathrooms. If they would work on the smell, it would be a decent place to stay.

It's 3am and despite the notice to tone it down at 11pm, I am being kept awake by the mob next door who clearly don't give a damn about anybody else. Wafer thin walls only enhance the experience of their ignorance (to say nothing of hearing every word of their conversation and intermittent sex). Add to this the visit by...

The room was immaculate but the property could use some TLC. The people couldn't be nicer, including story-telling quasi-permanent residents. Hang out on the porch and you'll be treated to all sorts of Dare County history from people who lived it.

Manteo motels are pricey for the value they offer and the Dare Haven is definitely overpriced at $75 per night for October stays. The owner is a very helpful person and was generous with sharing information on where to eat, golf, and outer banks sights. Unfortunately the motel rooms could use some TLC and updating. The first room we were...

Value for money, comfortable mattresses. We stayed in the smoking rooms on the west side of the motel court. Not unexpectedly, these smoking rooms hadn't been updated like the other rooms, and they were a bit "worn" but certainly clean.
