We had stayed here on our previous OBX visit several years back. Have since changed names and done a complete renovation. Rooms are good size and well appointed. staff was attentive to our needs. Both indoor and outdoor pool offered alternative to beach time. There is a direct boardwalk to the beach in the back of the motel. It is in a great location near attractions and restaurants, but off the main highway and was very quiet at night. Would stay here again on next visit.

Loved our stay here. It is right on the beach and has a nice view from the second floor on a clear day. Very comfy beds and good service. Everyone is friendly. Will stay here again.

My only complaint was that our neighbors (without kids) were very loud every day as early as 6 AM, and you could hear people checking/moving in and out at that time. A little bit annoying, but theres not much the hotel can do about that.

Stayed here on my 1st trip to OBX. It's a nice motel. Very clean and the staff was pleasant. Wife and I stayed in the "older" part (non-tower rooms).
They have a continental breakfast. Nice, before the beach. You won't have to drive to a restaurant.

My only hitch, the rooms in that section are a bit smaller than I'm used to. I'll check out the tower side next time.

Dear Josh G,

Thank you for your review, we appreciate you taking the time and telling us about your stay. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. Our rooms a slightly larger in the tower building from the main building. Glad you enjoyed our breakfast before you hit the beach. We hope to see you again soon.

We stayed in the new renovated tower room double queen dune room.

We travelled with our 3 kids. The room was quite pricey but I was hoping it would be nice being new and also on the beach front. I called beforehand to ask if we could put an extra bed in the room and was told there should be space. When we arrived and I request a roll away bed they told me the hotel doesn't have roll away beds. Um... why did you say so when I called?

The room itself is quite small. You literally open the door and step into the bathroom (which is also very tiny and not very new).

The renovations are lovely. The carpet and furniture are beautiful and give the room that beachy feel. The linen is quite rough - I was hoping for a higher thread count.

The check in was easy and the staff were very friendly. The pool looked great although we didn't use it and the walk over the beach was 1min! Amazing.

Dear Tarryn5,
Thank you for your review, we appreciate you taking the time and telling us about your stay. We are sorry that the bathroom was smaller than you expected and the sheet were a little rough for you. We do us an outside service for our linen but will look into this matter with them to ensure our linen are soft . We are happy to learn that you ike the newly renovated rooms and the short wak to the beach.
Again, we thank you for your review, we will share your comments with our team to ensure these issues are addressed immediately.
Thank you
