Ben, I don't know anything about the OI area as I've never fished out of there. There's a ton of stuff down near HI though. Do a search on Google on Outer Banks Motels and you'll find plenty. I usually stay on the boat at the dock and save some money. We stayed at Avon Motel and it was a little rough and a little loud at night. It's also a 1/2 hour or so ride from Hatteras. There are usually rooms right down there near the docks though if you book just a little in advance.
