Well, this is our second trip to OBX motor lodge. The first trip was fabulous. The second stay was just ok. The rooms are outdated but I can live with that. This trip we stayed poolside and still have a great view of the ocean. The room had some serious issues with electrical sockets. There were no sockets in the...

We have again enjoyed our stay. The office staff are friendly and helpful. Vito is adorable! Our room is clean and comfy. We will definitely be back next year! We are close to a lot of restaurants. When the cleaning staff changes the bedding (which is at least twice a week) they always clean the bed spread! You never have...

Although this lodge has a great view (if you can get an ocean front room) and is only steps to the beach, it is desperate need of updating. Our room was on the second floor (ocean view). We had holes in the carpets and curtains. The windows were so old we couldn't see out. Beds were OK. It seemed clean...

After reading some mixed reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. My husband and I travel to the OBX for our anniversary each year and I think we have definitely found our honey hole. This place is fabulous. Reasonably priced, clean and an amazing ocean view. Yes, it is outdated and could stand some minor repair but overall they were...

My wife, various family members and I have been coming here for at least ten years and the place is like fine wine-gets better with age!! It's not fancy, you can be as casual as you wish (within confines of public law!), and it's family friendly to no end. We were here in late September for two days, had a...

We had a wonderful time while we stayed at here. The view is gorgeous. The pool was very nice. The place was clean, although outdated but who cares your barely in the room anyways! Our room was huge. It had a full kitchen! If we return to KDH, we will most definitely stay at outer banks motor lodge!!!

Right on the beach - literally step off your own patio onto the sand! Each patio has 2 rocking chairs and a table - lovely to sit outside in the morning, watch the sunrise, also nice out there in the evening. There is a faucet in an enclosed area to rinse off your feet when you leave the beach.This is...

This was our third visit here, and we were only able to get a poolside room, which was fine. We had been in oceanfront, 2nd floor twice before. After being switched from Rm. 20 (horrible and not as advertised as an efficiency) to Rm. 23, our 4 night stay was very pleasant. We love how close it is to the...

Very disappointed in the room ...please look at pictures. They make you initial a form when you check saying "no early check out or you loose your money.", I see why now. Everything is very run down and not well maintained. A lot of rust. Not pleased at all...
