This may have been our most favorite place to stay out of all our 9 night trip. Wonderful check-in lady, perfect location, immaculate room, comfortable bed, fast wi-fi, excellent hot breakfast, and fabulous balcony with a BEACH front view! We so enjoyed our walks on the very clean beach, just steps away from the building on a well maintained boardwalk/overlook....

View from our ocean front room was fantastic. Best sunrises we've seen. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was very nice with updated furnishings. We'd stay there again. Great location & easy to travel out of.

I travel a lot for my job so I've been in a few hotel rooms :) but I am still smiling four days later when I think about my room. The lobby was small but immaculate and the front desk ladies very friendly. My room was on the 4th floor and I took the elevator. The hallway was long but...

We stayed two nights at this hotel. We enjoyed the beautiful beach and the hotel in general. Its only about a 15 minute drive to Kitty Hawk. There are some restaurants within walking distance and there are a ton of restaurants and shopping within a short drive. There is a indoor pool and free breakfast.

We had never been to the Outer Banks and decided to do it on our 35th Anniversary . There are many advantages this time of year. Lower Hotel Rates, most tour activities are open and weather is high 60s to mid 70s. Very pleasant. The front desk manager made us feel very welcome along with the entire staff. The breakfast...

Just so that we're clear, the individual hotel ratings I gave below are not the highest because I never rank the highest on individual category because nothing is THAT perfect! After many changes in reservations, I settled for this location. Glad I did! Though our room faced away from the ocean, we didn't care because we spent very little time...

This hotel far exceeded the expectations of my wife and I. We were looking for an affordable Outer Banks Hotel with beach access. We recently spent a week here on our vacation to Nags Head.

We only stayed one night but could have stayed a week. Location, staff, room with a sea view and breakfast all excellent. The breakfast room is a bit on the small side when the hotel is full but the breakfast available was far superior to a Hampton Inns & Suites that we stayed at two nights previously.
