“An older property but clean rooms and grounds”
Reviewed 16 December 2011

We stayed one night in early Dec. I had read review on Trip Adviser and made an online reservation. Cleanliness was an A-. During my extensive bug check I did discover a empty water under the bed and some dirt behind the headboard. Otherwise very clean.
We were there for business and this was fine for one overnight. For an ocean vacation though this room would be sort of small even for 2.

Room Tip: Make sure you know which building you want as one is across the street and far back from the street...

Thank you for staying with us while traveling to the Outer Banks. I will make sure that I share your review with our staff. You are correct--the Mariner II building is located across the street from the ocean...this is why it is best to always follow up by calling the hotel if you make a reservation by internet to make sure the room type you booked is actually the one you wanted so we appreciate your pointing that out in the Room Tip section.

We hope that if you are able to visit the Outer Banks again you'll give us another try and we'll try to make your stay even better the next time!
Thank you--Tonia

We came in at 2 am, having been turned away from Holiday Inn Express due to computer problems. This hotels computer was also down but the clerk had us registered and in our bed in no time. The next morning we enjoyed a fabulous free breakfast which was much more than most hotels provide. Loved it and would definately recommend.

One property's loss was our gain and I'm pleased that our front desk was able to work around the computer being down to get you checked into the hotel quickly (as I'm sure you were tired from traveling). We appreciate your taking the time to write a review of our property and would love to host your next stay! Please feel free to contact us the next time you'll be in the area and we'll get you squared away for your next stay.
Thank you---Tonia

We stayed at the Days Inn in late November on a weeknight. There was almost nobody there. Check in was fast and friendly and the prices were fastastic. Breakfast was included. The room was as close to the ocean as possible. The breaking waves kept me awake for a while which was not a problem. The room was clean and close to dining. We will be back if we are in the area again.

We're glad you were able to take advantage of our great lower rates in the winter. I'm very pleased you found everything clean & comfortable and that our staff was accommodating. We are hoping that everyone is enjoying our new, free hot breakfast of sausage, eggs, waffles, cereals, pastries, etc. Please feel free to contact us direct the next time you are able to visit the Outer Banks--we'd be happy to help reserve your next stay!

We enjoyed our stay overall, but they took 1 more hour than what they have posted to let us check in.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property on the Outer Banks. I'm pleased that you had a good stay and am sorry that your check in was later than normal. Our check in does begin at 4 pm for the hotel and many times we are able to let guests check in early. We do thank you for staying with us while you were visiting the Outer Banks and hope that if you are able to visit again we can make an even better impression the next time around.

Thank you--Tonia

Reviewed 27 November 2011

The Days Inn Mariner is in a good location close to the beach. Easy to get to. The pricing off season was good. A few restaurants nearby. McDonald's, Dairy Queen, Pizza Hut,Burger King, Five Guys. There are good full service restaurants close by also. Other amenities nearby Walgreens, CVS, Harris Teeter. Movie Theater. The location is near the Wright Brother National Memorial.

The continental breakfast was worth it. My only complaint is the room smelled like smoke. The hotel allows smoking in their rooms for an additional fee. If you do not smoke like me you run the chance of smelling smoke during your stay. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. I had to borrow odor neutralizer as the regular store in the area were closed because it was later Thanksgiving Day so I couldn't buy Frebreze. The front desk offered to move me to another room if I couldn't get rid of the smoky smells. If you book your room directly they will charge you a $1.13 a day fee.

Has outdoor pool

In a pinch I may stay here again but, this place wouldn't be my first choice in this area.

Room Tip: Book your trip through 3rd party service such as Hotels.com to avoid additional room fees

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at the Mariner. I do want to make a comment first---this hotel has been nonsmoking for over 4 years now. We do not allow guests to smoke in our rooms or suites. There may have been a miscue from the sign in the room that says that a fee will be charged to a guest if they smoke in the room, but our rooms are all nonsmoking. Guests may smoke outside of their room but not inside.

I am sorry if someone did smoke in your room prior to your stay and that it did affect your stay. If you use the in-room safe during your stay there is a charge of $1.00 + tax for your stay. It is laptop size for those traveling with laptops. If you do not use the safe, then you may let the front desk know at check out and they can remove the safe charge. Please be advised, you will always get the best rate by calling the hotel direct or booking on our website direct rather than using a third party website. You will also find it easier to cancel or modify reservations without having to pay a fee if you need to do so if you book with us direct as well.

We appreciate your visiting with us while you were on the Outer Banks and hope to see you another time.
Thank you--Tonia
