This hotel is right on the beach with ocean view rooms. The rooms are clean, the beds are super comfortable. Continental breakfast included is okay. Coffee machines in room are great! Beach is beautiful but no chairs or umbrellas included, you must bring your own. Also try not to get a room on the 5th floor in the hot weather...

We went to OBX for a late summer/early fall beach trip and were very pleased with this hotel. It was oceanfront with its own beach access. Beds were super comfortable and had nice linens. Breakfast was great and staff was very pleasant. Would definitely stay at this clean and comfortable location again!

Love, Love this place! Stayed here in 2013 before it was Holiday Inn Express. It has been nicely updated with a free breakfast that can't be beat. Literally steps to the ocean! Right in the middle of the Outer Banks. Very clean, smoke free. Free parking. Mostly couples and families, can't go wrong.

We stayed here in July. We had no problems with the hotel. My biggest concern with a hotel is how clean the rooms are. Our room was clean. Not spotless, but clean. We didn't use the pool, so I don't know how it was. We did eat breakfast a couple of mornings and it was ok. The staff was very...
