“Strictly For The Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

On the ocean location makes it a good place to stay in this tourist destination. Our suite was on the dunes w/ no view of the ocean...but open the patio door and it's 10 steps away. We had a clean suite w sitting room and small cooking and dining area and a patio with chairs. It was clean, nothing fancy and a bit dated but perfect for a family. Staff was friendly and breakfast bar adequate. Good parking!

Room Tip: If you want to see the ocean from your room be sure to ask for an ocean view. We were o.k with the...

We enjoyed the large rooms and the view was perfect. We had a king on the 4th floor with an ocean and pool view. This way we enjoyed the sunrise and the ocean waves. We were lucky enough to see dolphins playing in the waves one morning. The wind blew very hard the first night and there was something flapping outside all night but only on the night the wind blew. The price for the quality of the room was very good. This is a good location for January in OBX as there are several things still open around them. Would love to return next year if our plans work out.

Room Tip: The 1st and 2nd floors will not have a view of the water if that is important to you get 3rd thru 5t...

We only stayed one night but the suite set up would have been great for an extended weekend at the beach. Furniture and fixtures aren't new, but everything was comfortable.
Breakfast was continental.
Elevators and hallways are outdoors. Suites have a patio overlooking the beach. Beach access with showers is right next door.
A great location!

Highly recommended. The suite was spacious and extremely comfortable. Beach access is right at the edge of the hotel, both steps over the dunes and a narrow access road for vehicles (vehicles are only allowed during the "off season"). From the 4th floor, the ocean view is spectacular, especially the sunrises. The Wright Brothers Memorial is easily visible from the west side walkways. There are many great "picture opportunities" for all the amateur photographers (my wife, not me). Although not within easy walking distance, the hotel is located near several excellent restaurants. Shopping is also nearby. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was limited, but good. The breakfast area is small and crowded, inadequate for the size of the hotel. However, we were told that this area is being remodeling soon during the winter slow season, hopefully to be completed prior to the spring.

Room Tip: 1st and 2nd floor rooms face the dunes. Rooms on the 3rd - 5th floors, both oceanfront and pool side...

For the money this place was a good value. The upper floors offered ocean view from the large sitting room with a dining area, and the Wright Brothers Memorial could be seen from the bedroom. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen area had a sink, microwave, refrigerator and stove. The rooms appeared to be clean although somewhat dated. All of the staff was pleasant and helpful. We informed a member of the staff that the elevator was making an unusual noise she said she would notify the manager immediately. Within one hour the elevator service people were there.
The location was very convenient to shops and restaurants and the free breakfast offered a nice variety to choose from.
The entire facility could use a complete cosmetic makeover but we had everything we needed and were very comfortable during our stay.

Room Tip: The ocean view from the lower floors is blocked by the sand dune but the view from the fourth and fi...
