“lovely little place”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

Much better than I expected. You will be pleasantly surprised, especially if you choose the slightly more expensive room (I stayed in both while there). The owners could not be nicer and do a great job keeping it clean, well run, and creating a family environment. Only a few minute walk from the beach. Definitely going back.

This is a GREAT place for the low price you pay. The rooms are recently remodeled so everything is new, clean, and wonderful. I was pleasantly surprised about how nice everything was. Definitely would go back and definitely recommend it!

If you require a big screen TV; 400 thread count sheets; and all of the other amenities of a modern 4/5 star hotel in a trendy destination, STAY AWAY-you will be disappointed. However if you are looking for reasonably priced, clean accommodations close to the beach, in a laid back beach town, give Sea Sound a try. As others have commented, the owners could not be more friendly and accommodating. Restaurants are within a short drive. I ended up walking to the closest one which took about 15 minutes. The motel and the town reminded me (in a good way) of how things used to be years ago. The beach which has wild surf is about a 2 block walk. The motel was damaged in last summers hurricane and although the rooms were in good shape, the pool was not yet open. I am already looking forward to returning.

Room Tip: I had a second story single room in the brick building which was very pleasant. The end rooms are l...

We recently vacationed in rodanthe, First of all we were 3 hours late getting to the motel but everything was ready for us. It was like stepping in to our own little beach house. The room was fresh and clean and I loved the way it was decorated. The owners were so nice and friendly. We are already planning to vacation there next year and this is where we will stay again.

Great location (center of Hatteras Island). Family owned and friendly staff that are very attentive. Priced right, well furnished kitchenettes located off Hwy 12 (not noisy)... Just on the border of Waves and Rodanthe. Close to all the fun stuff to do, and far enough away to do some motorized exploring. We enjoy our annual "end of season" journey to this SECRET spot...

This is a clean, friendly place with efficiencies available. It is family-run and a very owner hands-on place. It is a brief walk to the beach. We enjoy fishing from the Rodanthe fishing pier and it was a quick, convienent drive to the pier. There is nothing better than making a cup of coffee in the morning and sitting in a rocking chair on the porch, watching dawn break over the ocean!

The pool was a great amenity considering the very hot weather we had while we were there. We can't wait to return next year.
