Although I was only there for one overnight stay, the room was quite sufficient. Dorm size frig, M/W and coffee pot. Two double beds, a bit on the firm side, but very clean. A typical motel room. Stayed on the ground floor this time due to stair issues with my friend, but should I find myself in the area again, I will try for an upper floor for the view.

Loved that it was just a short walk to the sand and water and the pier. A couple of good places to eat right around the corner and the same with a couple of small, but genuine beach bars that made us feel at home.

Staff very friendly and willing to help in anyway. I'll be back, hopefully sooner than later. Thanks bunches.

Room Tip: Ground level rooms are convenient.

Of the oceanfront hotels located within 150 yards of Kure Pier, the Admiral's Quarters is the best choice for the peak tourist season. It distinguishes itself from surrounding competitors by featuring a greater diversity of room configurations, two outside pools (instead of the customary single pool), and a simple, relaxing cabana with plenty of seating.

On a first look, the hotel appears to be a singular unit. Look a little closer, and you can tell that the hotel is actually comprised of two linked buildings, each with it's own advantages.

If you are visiting Kure Beach as a family, or if you are coming with another couple or family, the northern building closer to the pier is best. There are two options to consider. It features 3rd floor mini-suites with two bedrooms, perfect for small families of 3-4 that want a little privacy without renting two units. For larger parties who want separate rooms, the second and third floors feature two end units that can open into each other. One room has a full kitchen, while the other has a half-sized refrigerator and microwave. Each room has its own bathroom, oceanfront deck, and two queen or full size beds.

The other building (south, closer to the hotel main office) features rooms that feel a little larger. The 2nd and 3rd floor oceanfront rooms feature rooms with larger decks than the northern building. This end of the hotel works best for couples or for small families of no more than 4 who don't mind sleeping in the same room.

The rooms in both buildings are fairly close in terms of decor, although it seems that the rooms of the southern building are in slightly better shape.

Diverse room options, multiple pools, and the cabana make the Admiral's Quarters the best choice for those visiting in the summer months who want oceanfront rooms within walking distance of the Kure Pier and the restaurants of K Street.

I had a great ocean view sitting on a private balcony. The room was clean, the price was good, friendly staff, a very comfortable bed, and an excellent overall experience. I'll definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at the AQ a few times. Every time the staff was friendly and helpful. The AQ is very clean and very close to restaurants and attractions. We really enjoyed our stay there. I will definitely be going back.

I have stayed at this motel more than once and I will continue to make this my home away from home when I visit Kure Beach. My son and I love this place, it is close to everything that appeals to us and the Fort Fisher Ferry is a few short minutes away. The team is very nice and hospitable and they do everything they can to make your stay pleasant. The rooms are clean, the pool is well maintained and the motel is right on the beach.
