Great location!! There are several restaurants & bar/grills within walking distance. Our room was very clean and decorated nice. We stayed on the 2nd floor in the tower building, this is considered a dune view. We could see a little bit of the ocean though from our patio. The sunrise was great! It is a very short walk from the tower to the beach on their pathway. The staff was very friendly, especially Lizzie, the front desk attendant. She checked us in when we arrived, and then one morning I went to get coffee and chatted with her about the town and such. She was always so friendly and made us feel very welcome. We definitely plan to return to the Outerbanks and will stay at Shutters whenever we are in town.

We recently stayed in an ocean view room and had a wonderful time. The room was very large, tastefully renovated and decorated, and spot clean. Most outstanding was the service - I forgot my fitbit in the room when we checked out and the hotel called us within hours that housekeeping found a watch in the room and offered to mail it to me - I received the fitbit in the mail 2 days later. I was very impressed with the service. I would definitely stay again at Shutters!

We love Shutters, this is our go to hotel. We have never had anything but a great stay. The staff has always been so nice. We stay in the Ocean view tower rooms. Always clean, nicely decorated and nice furniture on the balcony! We were there last week and it was another great stay. Have plans to return end of May.

The location was excellent. We walked out of our room, over the dunes and there was the ocean. It was a very nice beach. The room was clean and nicely decorated. It was a very good value. I gave it a "4" because it was very good, but there wasn't anything about it, other than the location, that was out of the ordinary. Our room was pretty quiet. There was a large gazebo at the top of the dune to sit and listen to the ocean.

We stayed in the shoulder season in a efficiency room. We found the room to be about what we expected as we have stayed at other efficiency rooms in the area. We had 2 queen beds, a small 4 person table, small kitchenette, bathroom. The room was compact and not nearly as roomy as the photos on the website, but it was what we expected and adequate for 3 of us. The kitchenette was adequately supplied, but didn't have everything that you might need. You might need to make a run to the dollar store for items like a pizza cutter, or cork screw. Not a big deal, and honestly expected. We found the room to be clean, but maybe not "perfectly" cleaned. There was a lack of cleaning behind the dresser and around the stove. It seems the room is cleaned in about the same way as a normal hotel room, except that it has a stove, a refrigerator, and all the mess that goes along with people cooking. There were a few crumbs and debris under the table as it was obvious that the chairs were not pulled out and the tile floor most likely not mopped. Probably just swept. As I said - it was adequate and pretty much what we expected. Would we stay here again? Yes. But we are not really very "picky" and we plan on doing some cleaning before we even bring in our bags. The location is very good. We will certainly consider Shutter for future stays.

Room Tip: Rm 114 was tucked back in the corner. Short walk to the beach, but no real "view".
