Waterway Inn: Good Budget Accomodation Near the Beach

We spent one night in this motel in Spring, 2013. It is an older property that has received a lot of TLC and renovation from its current owner, a retired golfer. The rooms are nothing elegant, small, and simply furnished, but everything was in top notch condition and very clean. The motel is on the main highway leading out of Swansboro, with a nice view of the sound. There is a grassy waterfront area with dock, and you can rent a kayak next door. We even saw dolphins swimming by from out of our window. We paid a bit extra for a room at the end, which has a large picture window overlooking the sound. Very nice. The owner is a pleasant fellow but will talk your ear off if you let him. No chain motel anonymity here. The motel is within a few minutes of downtown Swansboro with a small collection of shops and restaurants and of the beaches at Emerald Isle.

Great views from rooms at the end
