It’s an old beach motel (51yrs) and they have maintained and modernized without losing the charm. It was very clean, good air conditioning, friendly and prompt staff. Overall a great getaway. Clean nice pool and right beside Nags Head Fishing Pier and restaurant. Will definitely go back!

The location was ideal, and the room was even larger than expected. This is one of the few motels that provides exactly what they advertise. The king beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating!

The desk clerks were great. The location is great. Beach access is great. The pool was great. The only issues we had with the Motel is that they lack pool chairs, and in our room the shower didn't drain. We had a standard King room (#3), and the room had been updated, but the bathroom shower had not.

We are glad that you loved our location, service and the pool. This has been an extremely busy month with higher than usual guests and lots of guests loving and enjoying our pool. We will soon be adding more pool chairs to accommodate more guests. I'll ask our maintenance person to address the shower drain in that room immediately. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with us.

The motel staff was friendly. However, the motel is a little outdated. This is a nice clean motel however it did not meet my expectations.
