The room was clean and comfortable and we were right on the beach. The front desk was extremely helpful. I tried to print some directions on their computer in the lobby but it wouldn't print properly. The woman at the front desk printed what I needed, even though it took her awhile. She didn't give up! Breakfast very limited. A...

My husband and I stayed here 5 nights. Hotel is very clean and has lots of parking. Rooms are large. Our room had a king sized bed and a couch. We didn't have a eating table but used the plastic one from our balcony. We were oceanfront on the third floor but could not see the beach well. I asked...

We was on the 3rd floor and had a great view of the ocean. We knew what to expect since I had chose this place for the 3rd time but this time I took our 3 small grand children and daughter. My daughter loved the place, we thoroughly enjoyed the pool during the day & the beach in the evening....

Knock-out 4th floor oceanfront view and convenient location. General feeling is that this is a basic no-frills hotel right on the beach where you pay for the view not the amenities. The rooms are large but dated. Bring your own lotion and shampoo: small broken bar of soap, no lotion. Housekeeping could be improved - we had to bus our...

Thank you for staying with us during your visit to the Outer Banks.

Welcoming staff, clean bright room, nice pool & hot tub. Enjoyed our stay at this very conveniently located hotel. Close to all the Outer Banks favorite venues. Easy access to the beach with a very nice deck for star gazing. Be aware that the free breakfast is very limited.

A really comfortable king sized bed with lots of space in the room and a fridge. We arrived late but the desk clerk was very nice and told us that if we didn't like the room we could choose another. We walked the dark beach before settling in and then again right before breakfast since it is so close. Breakfast...

Hotel was a nice clean hotel with good location to the ocean and local attractions. But having to eat the sweet potatoes biscuits a d store bought pastry for several days was hard to do and provided a person with an extreme amount of calories to start off their day.

Check-in was friendly and efficient. Location on the beach is nice with lots of good restaurants within a few miles. Good central location to visit the Wright Bros memorial, Lost Settlement sites, Pea Island, and Alligator River areas. Overall experience was good, but a few negatives bring the rating down. Breakfast was very limited with only packaged biscuits and pastries....
