We have been going to Sea Vista for many years and it never disappoints! Every room has a balcony that looks right at the ocean; you feel like you are on the beach. I love to cook, and I can buy fresh seafood up in Surf City and then bring it back to the full kitchen (in select r

After the week we've had with Hurricane Florence I'm just about moved to tears with this one. I can only say THANK YOU for being a customer. Please return once we reopen. We appreciate your business.

I understand the Sea Vista has a new management team and the difference is readily apparent.

We rented an efficiency: Rm 307 for 3 nights, before the Labor Day weekend.

The room was outstanding for the Sea Vista; spacious, very clean and everything worked! The online booking al

It was our first trip to the NC coast and we had an amazing time. The Sea Vista Motel was clean and comfortable and was right on the ocean. We would definitely visit again. One suggestion I have is that they put a broom and/or small vacuum in the unit as you do track in a lot of

While it's not the Waldorf Astoria, it's just right for a few days at the beach. I've been coming here for 25 years and while the hosts used to be a little curmudgeonly, that's no longer true. Now, everyone's really lovely and kind. But mainly, I come here because it's right smac

A nice review and we thank you. We had a management change last year, but I'd say just about everything else is just about the same. Happy to pass along the kind words about our staff. And yes, indeed, we are "smack on the beach" and we love our returning families and their pets. Come again!

Clean and reasonably price with great customer service. We had a problem with the A/C. I reported the problem at the check-in/out building and before I finished my sentence a guy was going to my room to check things out. They replaced the A/C unit and the room was cool in no t

Yes how is the beach and motel after hurricane Florence
Our manager was just today allowed back on the island so I have limited info at this time. Looks like minor water damage to the interior of some units; third floor awning ripped away; beach erosion which compromised the beach access stairs.

How do you access the beach? I see the center steps/walk way over the dunes, but how do you get from your rooms to the walkway?
The stairs in the center of the motel are the access to the beach for all guests.

"Choose a room with a full kitchen if you like to cook."
"Consider the Sea Vista before the Jolly Rodger or Breezway."
"Third floor rooms were quiet"
"All rooms are oceanfront but decorated individually by the owners. I can only speak to the one we rented and it had everything we needed."
"There is no elevator. So if have trouble with stairs, ask for a room on the ground floor."
