The Island Motel and Guesthouse has many options. You can stay in one of three small houses, you can stay in the main guest house or you can stay in the motor lodge behind the main guest house. Two of the small houses offer some of the best, yet affordable accomations on NC's coast. The Wright Gitaway and the Endless Summer are high quality accomadations in the quaint downtown area. The Endless Summer is themed after a 1960's surf movie and the Wright Gitaway is themed after our first in flight brothers. Both have high-end 4-star-like appliances and bedding, fireplaces, and an attention to detail and cleanliness that I have seen only in one other place that I've stayed.
I live less than 2 hours away, and this is where I come to get away.
I've stayed in the motor lodge, which allows pets, but I had a problem with the cat hair that was on a chair. However, the houses are spotless.
