Come join us on the beach…

Sea Foam Motel is located on the Outer Banks beachfront in Nags Head near Jennette’s Pier and conveniently located minutes from the historic town of Manteo, Jockeys Ridge, Wright Brothers National Memorial, Oregon Inlet Fishing Center, and Bodie Lighthouse in addition to great restaurants and shopping. Included in the National Register of Historic Places, the Sea Foam Motel offers our guests a welcome change from chain motels and provides a throwback reminder of vacations taken during years gone by.

Most of our guests are regulars and you might well meet somebody who has been coming to the Sea Foam for more than 20, 30 or even 40 years.  What stands out for many of our guests is the friendly atmosphere where new visitors quickly make friends and are soon visiting on our patio, by the pool, or enjoying a game of shuffleboard or corn hole. Our main attraction will always be the beautiful oceanfront beach directly behind our motel where you can swim, relax, read a book, take a stroll, jog or watch the sunrise from our gazebo while enjoying a cup of coffee.

When you are ready for something different, climb Jockeys Ridge to fly a kite or watch the sunset, experience history at the Wright Brothers museum and memorial, stroll through the quaint town of Manteo, shop at Tangier Outlets, or enjoy a meal at any of the many popular area restaurants. Whatever your preference, you will notice the distinct Nags Head outer banks personality that invites you to simply relax and enjoy your stay.
