After a snafu with a rental house in Salvo and no place to stay for a week, nine hours from home, we called Cape Pines in a panic at 5:30 on a Saturday night. To our surprise (and initially, trepidation), they had accommodations for the week for us and our dog.They even offered to hold the room for us so...

This was our 5th visit here and again we had a wonderful time. We stayed in a different pet friendly room than the room we usually like but that was our fault for calling last minute. There are 12 courtyard pet friendly rooms, efficiencies and suites that are all steps away from one of the most beautiful pools on the...

Very well kept, clean and cottage-like. This is a throwback to another time, nice change of pace. My family of 6 stayed here and one of the rooms had a full kitchen, the other a kitchenette. It is pet friendly, floors were knotty pine. I am accustomed to 5 star hotels and found Bill's place to be a pleasant surprise...

It's unfortunate when a family is having a wonderful vacation until the parents are held liable for actually paying the hotel bill, then everything is "just awful". As explained at length, when a 5-Night Special rate for 2 persons is booked, it is not acceptable to bring a family of 5 (FIVE) for the same discounted price. You were clearly...
