Reservation was super easy. probably due to the fact it's still off season. The rooms are very clean. The cleaning staff were very accommodating in bringing fresh towels. Holiday Inn has always been my favorite place to stay when on vacation. Prices are within reasons, and staffing has always been friendly.

The bed was too soft for me, but might be fine for other people. It was very clean. There was no outside noise, but we could hear toilets flushing from other rooms. Nice beach view from the upper floors. Make sure the previous guest has locked the balcony door.

Stayed for one evening on a Thursday in March 2017 as a preamble to a longer getaway for me and my wife over the weekend. We love OBX and have visited 25+ times, mostly for longer stays. When we have stayed at hotels, we have tried the Ramada, Comfort Inn, Hampton Inn, and Hilton Garden Inn. By comparison to those...

We found the room to be clean. The Staff was friendly and helpful. We had an ocean view room so we were able to watch the sunrise from the balcony. The breakfasts​ each morning had great variety. We would definitely consider using this motel again!

Average accommodations. Pool area needs an upgrade. It does have good beach access... But no help for February. Surprisingly good breakfast. Recommendation is this is fine for a quick stop, but if you are spending any amount of time take advantage of one of the many other rental properties.

I cannot vouch for the value proposition during peak season, but at least when I went this was an excellent stay and value. The oceanfront room was quite well stocked for the area. Many of the hotels in Nags Head are a bit dated and showing age. This hotel, though, has been completely renovated. The television could use an improvement,...

My family stayed this past summer for a night to check out the renovations. The hotel was clean and the staff was courteous. Our room had a great view of the ocean and we were steps from the beach. Basic continental breakfast, but it was good. We would definitely stay again.

I don't know how old this property is. It's on the beach and the furniture is a little strange, but it's very well maintained and comfortable. Up to the best of Holiday Inn Express standards. However, the people were very helpful and made our stay an extra pleasure
