Carpet had just been cleaned and it was still wet! Dirty towel in the bathroom. SMALL beds...NOT QUEEN SIZED, maybe double beds.

Hotel average, not super well kept up. Clean. Temperature was very nice and cool for summer.

Nice for a quick stay

Posted 14-Jul-2015
Pros: Proximity to activities we wanted to do.
Cons: Cleaner in general... also keeping the doors shut would cut down on the humidity inside the room.
Location: Beach, Hatteras Island stores, ferry to Ocracoke, lighthouse all within 15 min. drive.
Nice staff, one block away from the beach and a 5 minute drive from Hatteras Lighthouse. Nice for a quick stay but we wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer than a couple days. Our shower curtain was moldy at the bottom (which they fixed as soon as we asked) but they didn't care to clean the mold out of the tub. Would not have wanted to stay here with children.

Smell

Posted 13-Jul-2015
Cons: Tear out the carpet.
the first room had a musky, mold smell. When we went to the next room assigned the carpet smelled terrible. When we walked in, immediately there was a strong deodorizer smell that, I assume, was used to try to mask the carpet odor. The hair dryer didn't work. The stairwell to the observation deck smelled. The lobby had coffee and a juice dispenser, but there was no juice.

In need of a major renovation.

Posted 06-Jul-2015
Pros: In spite of its need of a renovation, the room didn't smell, the room was quite and the maid service did a good job cleaning the room.
Cons: almost every thing.
Location: it is OK.
This motel needs to fix their sign to installing free wifi, new HVAC system, a new front office door, etc.

Decent hotel, fantastic location, but the staff???

Posted 29-Jun-2015
Pros: Location was nice. Pool was clean.
Cons: It would be nice if the Wifi would stay online, staff would be more cooperative and realize the importance of their collective jobs.
Location: Ferry to Ocracoke, surf fish, pier fish, or charter a trip, take the Jeep to the beach, loads of good restaurants & shops to enjoy while you are here!
Stayed Thursday 6/25-Sunday 6/28. Housekeeping came in while we were out enjoying the day on the 26th, all they did was hang two new towels and two new wash cloths in the bathroom. They did not vacuum, did not straighten bed or replace sheets. Worst of all, they did not pickup the used towels or washcloths!!! On the 27th, after a day enjoying ourselves, we came back at around 3:30 to find housekeeping still had not been to our room, and the TV had no service. When I finally found someone in housekeeping, they said they did not realize they had missed our room. They came within an hour and a half, but again never vacuumed, though they did at least pick up the dirties this time around. Front Desk had no interest in fixing our television problems and I eventually moved the bureau and tightened the fittings on the back of the TV and on the wall. An unimpressive visit, but thank goodness the weather provided us with a good reason not to be in the room for long.

Lots of driving on the Outer Banks.

Cons: Everything but the shower.
Location: No problems with the location. No sign in front!!!!
The Hotel front sign is missing causing me a huge headache. The room was OK. The shower was excellent! The exterior was NASTY looking!!!! Overall wouldn't go back. Staff was OK.

Webpage photos are as good as it gets.

Posted 23-Jun-2015
Pros: Location.
The exterior of the building needs alot of maintenance. The carpeting in the room felt damp. I would have expected a much nicer facility for what we paid per night.
