So we couldn't wait for our rental home week to start, and we came to Hatteras 3 days early. We brought our dog this time, which REALLY limits where you can stay!!
This was the only place we could really find, in our budget.
We were so cheap, in fact, that we stayed in ONE room, with 5 adults, 2 kids, 1 baby, and 2 dogs.
Yeah, we're cheap!
But, this motel met our needs, and gave us the shelter and shower we needed, so there's no complaints here!
***we stayed in the "Fisherman's Quarters", which is the OLD part of the motel. The NEW part of the motel is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!! So, if you're NOT bringing a pet, then stay in the new building, and you'll LOVE IT!!!
I'll review the new part, because my cousin stayed there for a night, also, and we checked out her room.
The new part of the motel is nice, new, modern, beautiful, GREAT views, clean, cozy, and awesome. (for $149 a night, which is OUT of our budget!)
The kitchenette is nice, the bedroom part is nice, the bathroom is nice......the furniture is totally cool, too. The rooms are a relaxing, modern brownish color, and it's just.....nice!
Each room has a balcony, which over looks the "sound" and the boat docks. VERY awesome view, especially from the top floor rooms!
On the main door side, you can step out to the public walk way/balcony, and see the ocean.
The fisherman's quarters/ Pet section:
We stayed here. As I mentioned, with LOTS of living beings in our room!
The rooms smell a bit musty, but as with other motels on the island, they ALL smell this way, as Hatteras gets flooded frequently with hurricanes, etc. So this is to be expected.
The beds were actually not bad. The pillows were pretty flat, though. That hurt my neck.
The rooms were VERY plain and white. The bathroom was the same. There is internet, but the signal was too weak to actually go to any websites. But again, this IS the "fisherman's" section. Most staying here are probably just doing that. No frills. A place to sleep, get a shower, and go back out on the boat.
Other than it being plain, and not the greatest room ever, it met our needs just fine. Fridge, microwave, table, beds, toiliet, shower. Check.
The service and employees were very friendly, and the pool was clean and nice. There's even a little baby part at the one end.
There were no rugs on the floors (which is good for having pets) so with the kids swimming and sand all around Hatteras, it made for slippery walking.
I'd stay there again, though. No problems with it. Just not fancy or quality! But we're not looking for that, cause we're in Hatteras....having OUTDOOR fun!
