We stayed at the Inn at Pine Knoll Shores about 1 month ago for two nights. We have favored this hotel for many years, mainly because of the beautiful view. Frankly, if you are a person that does not like sand and does not want to go into the water, you will be perfectly fine

This is a very nice, but pricey hotel. All rooms are ocean front and very nice. The shower was on the small side as well as the bathroom. There was a stain going down the wall. The bed was very comfortable and the balcony was to die for. Would definitely come back.

3-star rating for location on beach, staff helpfulness and professionalism. Overall, a decent hotel but some minor improvements could go a long way to making it a 4-star rating. Negatives: booked two rooms (we got lucky with 2 side by side) but one electronic card swipe

Are bathrooms in all rooms just a shower, or do some have tubs?
The room we were in had a shower only. The new showers are low-entry...only a couple of inches off the floor. They are the same size as the tub they replaced. Made it hard to shave my legs because there was nothing to prop my foot on.
