Kure Keys Motel
Ranked #5 of 6 Hotels in Kure Beach
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Our first time staying, was the most wonderful experience I could ask for. I felt like I was with family. This place WAS our home for six days. The owner and staff were my kindred spirits. Housekeeping is amazing. This place is CLEAN, thank you Joanne. The pool is always clean and ready to go thanks to "pool boy". And the Jacuzzi is a welcome feeling after a harsh day. This place is the best to just relax and let it go. It's all good. I can't wait to go back next year. It is a good place for people going solo, family, or with groups. Just don't act like everything is EXPECTED to be given to you. It's YOUR job to have a good vacation! Not the hotel/motel/resort, don't be hating. Some people like to complain just to hear/see themselves. Squeaky hinge syndrome.

Room Tip: I will say that young children in an upstairs room can be a bit louder than a room that has young ch...

Ya know how some people just make you smile when you see them coming? Something about them just shouts "Good People"!? Well, *you're* certainly one of those! Even our other guests enjoyed meeting & being around you....they *told* me so :-) . I'm so glad that you found us. It was such a treat getting to host you and your cool family! Please join us again, soon, and share that "happy dance"!!!

Most motels already have a bad rep but for this one. It was extremely clean, no bugs, very friendly owner, pretty much on the beach & and very affordable. I will most definitely stay there the next time I go back

Thanks, so much, for your encouragement! We really strive to please our guests, as that's truly why we're here. I swear, if I could turn the building to face directly toward the ocean, and move it just a bit closer.....I WOULD! ;-) . Hope to see you again, soon!

I just stayed again for four nights and had a great time. Pool was wonderful and had great time fishing!. Rooms were spotless and really appreciated after checking in to number one rated hotel with family in north myrle beach if you want to read that review!

Like people will say, sometimes you don't really appreciate what you have until you have gone somewhere else!

David, Mark, Tyler and JoAnne keep up the great work and looking forward to seeing you soon.

LOL......that'll teach you to "stray" ;-) . So sorry for your family's less-than-great experience down in Myrtle. We're always awaiting your return to the "Reel Kure", here at the Kure Keys. It is always a pleasure to be your host, here on Pleasure Island!

Im sure all the other reviews you see here are written by the workets or the owners because after staying there..they seem laughable.

All that was available was a "suite" which consisted of 2 queen beds and a studio kitchen. They charged a extra 10 dollars to the rate because they considered my 2 yr old child an Extra person!!!!

They ac was old and loud. All the fixtures and faucets look as they havent been changed since 1962,they had actual crust on them. Place smelled moldy.

The pool looked clean and the best part was easy access to the beach, but then again...most of the places had beach access.

DONT go here unless truly desperate.

Ouch! ;-)
Your opinions remind me that, perhaps despite our best efforts, we simply won't be able to please everyone. It seems apparent that our older, little limited service motel is not what you desired. I wonder, though, why you feel so driven to disparage the opinions of so many others?
Please at least be honest about the one issue of *fact* (not opinion): You were, in fact, given a $10.00 *discount* on your room.....certainly *not* charged extra, as you claim.
By the way......none of our air conditioners are older than four years. That's their maximum life span in the salt air, here at the beach. Trust me.....I replace them *personally*. :-) .
Kindest regards~~

It is always a gamble when you look online for the perfect place to stay, especially when your searching a location you've never visited before. My wife and I took a chance and chose the Kure Beach Motel for our first trip to Kure Beach NC. It turned out to be a great find, and it will be our go to place every time we revisit Kure Beach. David, the owner/operator, is laid back, makes you feel welcome, and has great tips on where to eat. The room was very clean, and the bed was comfy. The sparkling pool and jacuzzi provided a wonderful place to relax after being in the sun and salt water all day. The location of Kure Beach Motel cannot be any better, it is literally 100 feet from the beach, that equates to only 50 steps from the edge of the parking area to the sand. I can't wait to return to this jewel of a motel.

Stumbled upon this jewel a couple of years ago; it was exactly what we were looking for quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The staff is very accommodating and goes overboard to make sure our stay was awesome! Options include fully stocked kitchen, hot tub, well maintained pool, use of outdoors grill and they even have a laundry facility on site, if needed.

The close proximity to the beach, pier and several restaurants options help make any visit perfect.

Highly recommended for families or as a couples retreat!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We are a small, family-owned and operated oceanside motel. (Not oceanfront). Just 100 feet from the beach and boardwalk in Kure Beach, NC, our rooms face parallel with the beach, so you must step out of your room for the ocean view. We have no "ocean view" rooms, though the public deck/porch on the ocean side of our building affords an excellent view of the beach, ocean, and magnificent sunrises!NO PETS : please don't ask if we're "pet friendly". We absolutely *love* pets (have some at home), but they are not allowed at our motel. It is really not a matter of "friendliness" :-)We have no designated "non-smoking" rooms. For those guests requesting non-smoking accommodations, in advance, we aggressively sanitize and deodorize our rooms with a *very* effective ozone generator. Our guests are nearly always *very* pleased with the results!We have a large grill available, a coin laundry, fish cleaning facility, and more than ample parking. There's even room for your boat, under 23'. With two "extra-long" double beds, all of our rooms can accommodate four guests rather comfortably. A small rollaway cot/bed is available for a fifth guest, but there can be no more than five people occupying a room, regardless of ages/sizes. We have excellent quality linens,flat screen TVs, and free WiFi! Outdoor jacuzzi! Plenty of free ice (can you believe that so many places *charge* you for ice?!), a convenience store just across the street with bait and tackle, beach supplies, etc. Yes, we *really* will inflate your water toys for you!
