We stayed here the week before hurricane Matthew. Quaint and quiet area. It was extremely clean and comfortable. The grounds were nicely kept. The staff was very nice and recommended several dining options. Will definately stay again.

My 6th stay here. I come here every year for a week of fishing. I travel down on Friday to avoid the Saturday traffic. Hatters Marlin is inexpensive (<$90 for 2 double beds). The room is clean. The staff is nice. Can't ask for more. Will continue to stay here.

Made a reservation 2 months in advance to stay at this motel. Checked in and was given Room #20. Opened the door, and there was an odor, couldn't figure it out. Until I sat my make up case on the bathroom sink, and smelled a foul odor. And noticed mold around the sink area door. Opened up the door, and...

I stayed here with friends for 2 nights before going out on a charter boat. The room was clean and convenient and the in-room coffee was excellent! The location is great and the staff is friendly. We'll stay again if we decide to take out a charter!

Room stinks like mold or something. Table where phone sat had extensive water damage. Mirrors in bathroom had moisture damage. Goose poop everywhere. Small pools, unfriendly people in office. Maintenance guy who brought us extra blankets was a great guy but he was the only good thing about this place. I have been coming to Hatteras for over 20 years....

Room reeks of mold (or something). Musty. Air conditioning barely works. Moldy tub caulking. Doors/ door handles dirty. Furniture dirty. I can only imagine what the mattresses look like. Thank God I brought Lysol wipes. Huge disappointment. Stay in Ocracoke or before Hatteras.

Every time I fish out of Hatteras I stay at the Marlin. The hotel is as clean as any on the Outer Banks. It is very close to everything and well kept. Willa has been very helpful on my last 2 trips. I am sure I will be back in the next few weeks
