What a special getaway on the Outer Banks! My mom and I stayed in the "beach house" and our visit could not have been better! We loved the inviting, beachy decor of the lobby, bar and guest rooms plus the best shower ever! So much fun to have our morning coffee on our own private porch overlooking the ocean. The staff was extremely polite and professional; they were a delight from check in, housekeeping to beach setup. Lovely beach too!

The place is in a great location in Duck. The rooms are timeshares and they are in need of a face lift. It doesn't effect your stay. Stains on the carpet, new light fixture with old holes and old wall paper showing. There were cockroaches in the upstairs rooms in the heating/Ac vents. When I told the front desk they were aware and stated they were going to have someone come in after we leave. Not sure why they gave us that room if they knew? We were there during the off season.

I read the reviews of the motel, and I can testify that they are all true--both negative and positive. The staff of the Wilbur want nothing more than for you to be happy and satisfied--something that they cannot necessarily provide but that they will give every attempt to achieve. The motel is the oldest on the Outer Banks--something they do not tell you ahead of time, but it has been refurbished with all updated interiors. The work done is acceptable though not to the highest standard. If you are looking for quaint and not concerned with square footage and you want to be right on the beach, this place is what you are looking for. I visited during the off-season, during which there is a roaring fireplace in the lobby for your comfort, hot cider, and freshly popped popcorn at your pleasure. My phone would not dial outside the motel, but the staff allowed me to use their front desk phone when an unexpected emergency occurred at home. I could not be more grateful. The breakfast was generous, but you must like sausage and egg omelets--there will be no bacon. You may end up with a room that has no direct connection to the lobby or one that does. If it is one that does, you may find that your room fills up with the smell of wood smoke. This can be rectified by ripping up the numerous free publications available in the lobby and shoving them into the gaps around your door. Overall, my stay was positive--like most things, it could have been improved upon. Oh, and it may be haunted ;)
