Great rates, friendly staff. Our suite was very spacious. Parking lot is a little tight, but plenty of spaces. Awesome view of the beach and the pier. Some cosmetic issues could use repairing and/or updating, but purely aesthetic. Would stay here again.

No hot water. No one answering at the front desk. Room phone ringing at night -- later learned they had somehow gotten water in the phone connection and caused a short. After we went down to the front desk and complained they finally agreed to give us a refund.

We first stayed here Memorial day weekend 2011 as we were moving to Raleigh and closing on a house the following Tuesday. Fell immediately in love with the place. Our kids (16,6,5) loved it too.

Cute and quaint mom and pop motel with direct access to the ocean. Only problem was lack of hot water for nightly showers but was repaired for morning shower next day.

Right on the beach, nice pool, can walk to lunch/dinner, etc. Love this hotel. Staff has always been accommodating and friendly. Parking is great and we feel secure with being able to see our vehicle in the parking lot. Anytime we go to Kure, this is our go to motel.
