Reviewed 25 May 2014

We stayed a Friday and Saturday night over Memorial Day weekend. The room was attached to the main building on the 2nd floor and was non-smoking but the ashtrays outside on the tables on the walkway were in constant use so we had some smoking annoyance. We had requested a downstairs unit but were given an upstairs. The room was...

While we're happy you enjoyed amenities such as the pool, it's disappointing to hear you felt inconvenienced at times. In the future, please let us know if there's anything we can do -- we'd always prefer to fix things in the moment to ensure you have an amazing time with us. All the best, Angie & Bill R.- Owners

I booked this place thru BringFido.com; never been to the Outer Banks, read review, looked at photos, and went for it. This place exceeded my expectations! Great staff, wonderful rooms, and the whole place was charming. Lots of attention to detail. My dog loved it too. Very close to many things to do. I will be booking there again and...

I visited this hotel several years ago in the off season (February 2008) while I was in RTP for two consecutive weeks of work. I wanted to be right near the Hatteras lighthouse (one of my favorite places), so I could be at the lighthouse for both sunset and sunrise. I didn't spend a lot of time in the room,...

Thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay with us back in 2008, Ron. We hope you'll come back again for a few more sunsets and sunrises at the Hatteras Lighthouse. All the best, Angie & Bill R.- Owners

Reviewed 16 May 2014

In the spirit of full disclosure -- we can't stand smokers. We probably should have turned around when we approached our room along an outdoor bank of No Smoking rooms on the first floor and smelled nothing but smoke (coming from the bank of rooms on the second floor). But nooooo. Consequently, we had to keep our windows closed at...

We're sorry to hear another guest's habit interfered with your stay. In the future, please let us know if someone is smoking in a Non-Smoking room -- we'll want to take care of that right away. That said, we're glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay with us. Hope we'll see you back again soon. All the best, Angie...

Rooms 11 and 12 are the best. Room 11 has a couch and a nice kitchenette. Room 12 is even better, with a full kitchen, fully equipped, and a back door that leads to the dog park and the gate to Grays Garden and gift shop, They have several grills on the property, gassed up and ready to use. A...

We appreciate the marvelous, Carolyn! It means a lot to hear Rooms 11 and 12 always provide you with a home-away-from-home when you're here in the OBX. Can't wait to welcome you and your family back for another great visit. Take care, Angie & Bill R.- Owners

I'm always a little leery booking at a non-chain hotel for many reasons. I took a chance, based upon tripadvisor reviews of this motel. I stayed for one week during bike week. This motel is a terrific value. The room was very clean, well-appointed, and well-maintained by the daily housekeeping service. While the sheets were not changed, the bed was...

Lubbock, Texas

We spent only one night in this motel and enjoyed it very much. It is an older place that was probably built in the late 1950's but it was very clean and well maintained and unlike most of the franchise motels now is family owned and operated. The owners were very friendly and helpful and very pleasant to be around...

We were down March 20 - 21 for fishing and shelling before the point had any closings. We had booked an efficiency but were upgraded to a suite. We had never stayed in one of the suites before, but we would consider booking one now. It was very convenient and comfortable. As usual, everyone was very friendly and they recognized...

My wife and I travel allot and usually have pretty much the same opinion of places, but that was not the case here. This motel is like a step back in time, it reminded me of SO many small family owned and run motels that existed before the chains came in. It is like a step back into the 70's...

The ferry to our rental in Ocracoke was cancelled due to bad weather, and we stumbled across this motel while searching for a place to sleep for the night.

We're glad we could help turn around a potentially crummy night, Connie.

There's not much better than to hear you felt welcomed as our guest. Hope to see you in the future,...
