The staff of Harborside Motel & Gift Shop will make you feel at home the instant you enter to check in. Always friendly and efficient, they go beyond the service level you can expect at most beach rentals. The rooms in the motel (16) and the cottage (2) are very clean, neat, and comfortable; the grounds are well maintained. The porch on the cottage is the main drawing card in my selection of a room there versus the motel where the rooms are larger; the view of the lake and the people watching are superb (although I do wish the snack stand across the street was perpendicular to the road.)
The cottage rooms feature a queen size bed and a refrigerator; although these rooms are cozy they are not cramped. In the motel rooms are spacious and also have a covered porch. Most of the extended family stays there; we always book at least one of the efficiencies.
Harborside is well located so that walking to restaurants and shops is easy. To me relaxing at the beach has a name: the Harborside in Ocracoke.
