Great locations right down from the pier. Rooms were older but price was great and family atmosphere was awesome!

Dolphin Oceanfront Motel, Nags Head
the staff was very very nice. air conditioner had a mind of its own. hard to operate. right on the beach and close to the pier. old motel, but comfy. maybe a tad overpriced though.

Loved this little motel!
We loved every minute of our stay. The place was clean and simple, service was good and friendly, the location could not have been more perfect, it was quiet and so restful. I would stay there every year that we go. PERFECT!
