The motel was super clean. We had a first floor non-smoking room. New owner remodeling older motel and updates happening but this motel is easy walk, 1/2 block from kure Pier, lots of fishing now. Cafe right before Pier entrance does super good breakfast and nice lunch menus. Close to Ft. Fisher, easy crossing by Ferry to Southport and back....

This is not a luxury resort by any stretch but it is clean and comfortable and located just one block from the ocean. It is an older motel, but the kitchen amenities are good and the pool was very refreshing - my kids loved the slide =) The shower is TINY!!! but the beds were very comfortable and the staff...

We have stayed at this motel several times over the last twenty years. Tia was our first time with the new owners. Upgrades have been made of flat screen tvs. Increased picnic tables, ice machine. Quiet, friendly, multiple types of rooms to choose from, swimming pool, extra parking in the side. A great place for families and couples. Walking distance...

This motel is decades old, but the staff is very friendly and helpful. After talking to some people who stay here often, I understand it's been purchased recently. Apparently the new owners are making changes to try to improve a motel that was outdated and run down, including adding microwaves in every room, updating the fridges, adding umbrellas to the...

The rooms are clean. You have a small kitchen (fridge, stove,microwave, along with pots pans, dishes). The shower is small but it works. My three boys enjoyed the pool which also had a slide, plenty of seating along with umbrellas, the pool started off at 3ft and went up to 6 ft, so all three of my kids could enjoy...

The good: The staff is by far the friendliest of any hotel or motel we have ever stayed in. You can walk to the pier or public beach access in less than a minute which makes night fishing pretty awesome. The pool has a slide for the kids and plenty of seating with umbrellas. The rooms don't have that nasty...

We spent 4 days last August at the Moran. The staff is very friendly and the house keepers were very friendly also. Great location. Best swimming pool on the island!!! The rooms are very clean. The location is perfect walking distant to the beach, stores,pier and a great seafood restaurant .

My family has stayed at the Moran Motel for the last 14 years on Mothers Day weekend. From what I understand they are under new management and it has went severely down hill. From having to change rooms due to airconditioning issues to naked women swimming in the pool and getting photographed. This is no longer a family hotel. My...
