Nothing budget but the price. Friendly staff surrounded by a warm reception area was the beginning of the unexpected. Room appointments and comfortable bedding are complimented by strong Wi-Fi and extensive TV selections. Rooms are on the protected side of the Atlantic dunes, their beach area is just a short walk.

The room was attractively decorated in crisp blue and white, the bed was divinely comfortable and I liked the convenience of the frig and microwave. The bathroom area was very small and might have caused problems for more people, but... More

Party of 3 on OBX duck hunting trip, and our guide referred us to Shutters. We arrived late at 11:30pm on Thursday and were greeted warmly by the front desk. Although our first night sleep was short (got up at 4:15am), it was good. A comfortable, clean room with only minor cosmetic blemishes that even the largest and best chains... More
