We stayed at the "Miller House". No it is NOT directly on the beach. It is about a mile from the main "Outer Banks Motel" which IS located on the beach. I read reviews after booking and was so nervous about staying there. We arrive and it was like a little beach house. Was very clean! The only "complaint" I would have is the walls are supper thin, given considering it's a room beside a room. We LOVED our stay! Will DEFINITELY stay again and for longer! Affordable! And the area is just perfect! 10 miles from the ferry!
We stayed in one of the cottages down the road, nice exterior, large community dumpster 8 feet from bedroom that will be emptied at 5am and wake up everyone, lights in the kitchen did not work, lights outside did not work, bathroom door wouldn't lock, strict policies such as "not hanging wet items on porch " but instead drive them 1 mile down the road to the back of the main office and put in community dryer which is not convenient after returning from the beach. There is no direct communication to the main office once in the cottage 1 mile down the road, and the office does not open until 9am, thus when the power went out at 4am there was no one to contact and no help. It would have been nice to have had chairs or some type of sitting area on the outdoor porch. Convenience to Conner's Supermarket was wonderful, location in relation to the lighthouse was wonderful, the number of cats meandering throughout the main office and parking lot was a little unhygienic and off-putting. The staff that we met seemed to be considerate and helpful as we saw one person upon check-in and one person upon check-out. This is the rural part of the Outer Banks, thus there are not many family-friendly activities nearby other than the beach/water sports and the lighthouse. This is a wonderful place if you are coming to sleep and then stay out on the beach the entire day, anything more and you will want a fully-working ocean-front room or to be closer to the larger towns with more to do nearby.
