We had an efficiency and stayed for two nights with our dog. The room was large and very clean, in a great location with a supermarket opposite and on the main road through the island. Staff were very helpful and the grounds and buildings were kept in very good condition. Would highly recommend this motel.

I've been coming to the Cape for 35 years and this is the first time I've stayed here. I am very pleased with my choice. First they love pets and the pet area is fantastic. Second, we arrived earlier than expected and they made our room available to us within an hour. Third, if you love period motels, this is... More

Decided to try something other than a chain hotel for once and were very pleasantly surprised. Spacious, clean room, within walking distance of restaurants, friendly staff with great advice on local establishments. Very nice!

The area around Hatteras is hard to find places that you can have your dog enjoy the beach as well. This place not only allows dogs but welcomes them. They even have a warm shower to wash the dog with when they are covered in sand! They have an open yard in the back that is fenced so that dogs... More

We stayed in the 2-bedroom suite for a week in September. The bedrooms were cozy and were adjoined by a shared bathroom, which has obviously been upgraded in recent years.

After a long day of sightseeing we decided to find a place close by. We were able to check out a couple of rooms and chose the suite which was on the lower level. Very spacious and clean (except for the sticky remote) good price for one night.

Far but worth it!! Nice, clean and quiet place. My boys really enjoyed the pool. The best part is that is pet friendly!!!! Mak our dog really enjoyed his first trip to the beach. A little warning for those who don't enjoy the visit of little frogs... they come out at night and stick to your door.
