Clean and convenient! Great location, everyone was nice. It is an older motel, so there weren't many outlets. Overall, good experience.

Old and nasty motel! Extremely dirty and smells bad! Found someone’s hair in towels that supposed to be clean...

Rustic look restore to it primary and reminds you of home or vacation when you a kid.

A clean and convenient seaside motel. I would stay here again if I was in the area

Small outdated TV does not function. My great-grandmother’s cabinets and curtains add a quaint touch of nostalgia, but the musty and old quilts and pillows felt almost damp. Doesn’t matter what I write, just ask yourself: why is this the most affordable lodging on the beach?

Great location, friendly staff. Rooms were decent; nice fridge and microwave in room.

WAS GREAT NICE PEOPLE WILL GO AGAIN WHEN I CAN ROOM WAS NEAT AND CLEAN

The hotel was ok, very convenience for beach walk. Easy access in and out

Short walk to beach. Friendly staff. Small but ok if just staying to sleep.

Everyone was very friendly, the rooms were clean, and the cinder bl Cl construction makes it very quiet!

I went to Kure Beach by myself for fishing and surfing, I arrived at 10 PM and my room was ready. The staff was very accommodating of my late arrival. Room was very clean, heat was on, TV worked just fine.

I got the small single room with the double bed, it was as described and had a decent amount of room for one person. Two would have been tight without unloading luggage and stuff into the dresser drawers. The shower was small and the toilet space was extremely tiny, almost unusable.

The Moran is an older facility with smallish rooms. The place is quiet and has a great location. The staff is friendly and helpful. I am guessing that the place was built in the early sixties. The room I had was small and relatively inexpensive which suited me just fine. It is one block from the beach and Kure Beach pier. There is a seasonal pool but I prefer the ocean. I have stayed there several times and appreciate the cleanliness, price and location. When I go back to surf/fish, I would stay there again.

Enjoyed stay, nice little old school beach hotel . Staff was very friendly and we appreciated late checkout.

when you're at the beach, you're outside all day. Motels are for sleeping.

The bathroom area is very small and the shower is dirty

The hotel was a little dated but well maintained, very clean and had a great location in a nice quiet location. Would definitely go back! Near many nice little restaurants :)

Very clean. Just old style of motel. Tile floors no carpet. Other than that it was a great stay for a great price and very friendly staff.

Very friendly staff! Great location by the beach, pier, and restaurants. Awesome pool where we met lots of other guests- super nice adults and kids. Quiet and laid back scene- not too crushed with tourists. Not the fanciest of rooms but all it had to do was provide running water and a clean bed. You will be way too busy having a great time to care about swanky fixins. We had a great time!
