The North Carolina Coast Hotels

Hundreds of rental properties are available. Small beach cottages can be had, but increasingly so-called sand castles—large multistory homes—suit large groups. Motels and hotels clustered all along the Outer Banks are still the more affordable way to go. Throughout the coast, the main choices are cottages, condos, and waterfront resorts. Chain hotels have outlets here, too, but you can

also stay at a surprising number of small, family-run lodgings. You might also consider one of many quaint bed-and-breakfasts often filled with antiques and managed by accommodating hosts. Always ask about special packages (price breaks on multiple-night stays) and off-season rates. Most hotels, inns, and B&Bs on the coast offer free parking on their property, a few have street parking only, but you can expect not to pay parking fees even at the priciest hotels.
