I took my 16 year-old son and 2 of his buds to the beach in late June. I was familiar with the Tarheel from a number of previous visits. It is not fancy, nor frequented by the upper class beach goers, but it fills its niche well. It is for real people...fishermen, but also families who want to spend their days doing something other than hanging out in the room. The motel was clean, the staff friendly and the facilities more than adequate. Our room had 2 queen-sized beds, a mini-frig and a microwave....all for around $100 each night. That is great for OBX in the high season. It is close to good places to eat...I like Tale of the Whale...and shopping if that is your thing. I recommend it highly.
