Very good place to stay. We only stayed one night because we were traveling down the coast of NC. Desk clerks were very nice and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Room rates are very good. Our room was an efficiency room.

We had a fun two-night stay at the Outer Banks Motel. Our cottage was right on the beach, very clean and perfect for our two couples. Wind was blowing about 40 miles per hour the first night, which was interesting, but we were safe and sound. Good meals at Dinky's and Diamond Shoals, and the Graveyard of the Atlantic museum...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Outer Banks Motel. The staff were extremely professional and knowledgeable. Excellent customer service from booking through check out!! When I booked online and called to confirm the reservation, they explained the website shows all available rooms. As a result I was able to book a two night stay that required us to move...

Stayed in two different rooms and the first was not available the second night...you need to choose your room carefully as not all are as described. Certain ones have far better ocean views than others; oceanside means little. The first room I stayed in had a large party next door and it was noisy. Walls thin. On balance, positive, though,...

When I say on the the beach...I mean on the beach.! We loved having our morning coffee on the porch looking at the waves crashing on the beach. Our cottage was clean and well equipped. Thank you for such a perfect quick get away. We hope to be back! The Talbot family

Easy check in and we were pleased when we got to our cabin. The space was very clean and the kitchen is well equipped. Only disappointment were the old TVs in our suite, they are in much need of an update.

We got online to book a room for in early March. They were having a presale. The owners recently emailed me that they can not honor their internet sale. What a scam! Their rooms are very outdated anyway.

Sitting on my own covered front porch watching the ocean crash was like heaven on earth. Being from so far away from an ocean my entire life smelling it, hearing it, and having spray on my skin from the ocean was just too wonderful. The two bedroom cabin was so clean, so charming, and I now have a favorite place...

We have gone to this place for many many years. Recently...because of our number of guests increasing, we have moved to a house. But we try to visit when we are on OBX. Miss Dillon and her staff are great...like family. Clean...convenient...great place to stay!
