Nothing fancy but it was cheap and on right on the beach. An old hotel but clean and well-kept which came with an equipped kitchenette.

The rooms were updated with flatscreen TV's and they were recently painted.
It is right next to the pier and the pier has a restaurant/bar on it. It made for a crowded and louder than normal beach experience.

The staff was very friendly and checking in was effortless. I accidentally left clothes behind and they called me right away.

Right over the dune form the beach - you can hear the waves from outside the oceanfront rooms! A classic piece of old Nags Head, before big mega-condos.
Next to a fishing pier, though this turned out to not cause any problems. Rooms are old and small. Tiny mini-fridge and microwave, don't expect to anything beyond cereal and sandwiches in the room.

A classic old style motel right off the beach. The rooms are small and cramped, carpet is worn, but you can't beat the location - right over a dune from the beach. Housekeeping does a good job and Lana at front desk was very helpful - suggested the aquarium for my kids on a rainy day which was totally worth the trip. I was worried about the pier but it didn't interfere, if you fish this place would be ideal. Not as nice as other places but at 2 stars I guess it was about right. If you get a good rate it could be well worth it, you can't beat the old school charm and proximity to the ocean. more

The location is right next to the Nags Head Pier and just about 20 steps from the door to the beach.
The decor is a little outdated and the room space is cramped but the local makes up for that. Parking can be real tight if you are in anything but a car.

The staff is friendly and helped to find us a place to eat that was open at a later hour.

We were never asked how many people we would be traveling with, only how many rooms we would need. They only had a single bed room available and we were traveling with 2 children. We had to make beds on the floor because the hotel didn't have any cots

We had a wonderful beach view.

This hotel has a clean pool and direct access to the beach. The pier next to the hotel has live music and great food.

Very old hotel probably built in 50 - 60"s. Beds were comfortable, air conditioner looked new but never shut off
