Friendly staff, nice beach spot, ample parking. Functional, no frills room.
Pros: Reading/balcony area at beach was nice for watching waves and/or reading a book. The staff were all friendly - I tried to get into my room as soon as I could, and they were helpful by contacting me as soon as it was available.
Cons: While the room was mostly satisfactory, and the price was certainly great ($70), the fact that I was put into a handicapped room was less than optimal - I wish this was clearly stated when I tried to make the reservation, because I would have selected another room. The shower was good for wheelchair access, so that's great for those who need that, but because of this, it overflowed into the bathroom, so I used all but one towel to mop up the floor after my shower. Additionally, just outside the handicapped room, there's a sketchy unlocked door that leads to a very dark side part of the motel - I'm fully capable of dealing with dark alleys, but I don't know that this is an optimal exit for a handicapped person? Finally, unrelated to the upkeep of the JY, the neighboring dwelling had loud Frank Sinatra on at their (empty) pool house until midnight every night - while soothing, it's kind of distracting when trying to fall asleep.

Pros: they're pet friendly and the off season rate was incredibly cheap
Cons: The ice machine was a bit far away but would not stop me from staying there again!

Pros: Friendliness of staff. The front desk staff,  was extremely helpful. She told us about two restaurants that were excellent as far as the quality of the food and budget. She was right! Kill Devil Hills Grill (across the street) and Blue Moon.
