We called ahead en route to Nags Head to secure a room...Yeah!! After the previous two nights at a B & B we were really welcoming a clean and modern facility. We had a very nice room with two queen beds, oceanfront (King were sold out) and that was just fine with us. The check in was smooth and easy...

We spent there a night during , what if definitely defined, off season. The surroundings were rather quiet , the weather cold and most shops and restaurants closed. Arriving at the hotel service was friendly and caring, getting us checked in quickly. We got a upgrade to a king room with ocean view. The room was great, feeling pretty new...

We like Holiday Inn Express when we travel. This one, in Nags Head is located nicely. Much older than some we've stayed at but recently updated. My wife loves the "Euro" look to the rooms where I favor the more traditional. Facilities were clean and comfortable. Breakfast is the typical HIE fare...enough to get you going in the morning but...

Overlooking the beach. Close enough so I can hear the ocean. Hotel is super clean. Bathroom is completely updated. All room furnishings new and modern. Very happy with hotel and the service. Location is close to all attractions but is still quiet.

Clean renovated hotel with a good continental breakfast. Booked 2 nights through a discount site and were only offered a street side room, despite it being off-seaon and at less than capacity. A minor disappointment, but not unexpected. A quick walk over the adjacent sand dune yielded some fantastic sunrises. Also very relaxing to just walk the beaches in the...

Great location, great staff, and very comfortable room! Would have been five stars if the bathroom would have been larger. Beautifully updated, just very tiny. Breakfast was very nice, much to choose from.

Our family stayed at this hotel for a couple of days. The location is excellent situated right on the ocean with a private walkway to the beach. Kids enjoyed the indoor pool since we were visiting in the fall. Breakfast was a great bonus each day and had a ton of variety. Can definitely tell there has been a recent...
