This place seemed very nice when making the reservation. I brought my 84 year old mother to see the ocean for the first time in about 20 years or so. The front desk help wasn't overly "helpful". This place is as plain Jane as can be. It should be called Motel 6 instead of an Inn. There is no breakfast... More

We selected this "Inn" for a short term stay during the OBX high season so we could attend a nearby wedding. Knowing we wouldn't be at the "inn" that much of the time, we went for an economical choice, that looked clean and had the right type of room for our needs (king bed/sleeper sofa/microwave/refrigerator). First of all, calling this... More

If you are looking for a friendly, convenient place to stay, this is it. Clean room, comfortable bed, and a wonderful helpful staff. Ryan was as helpful as ever in helping us. We were able to have a last minute two night get away with his help. The hotel is walking distance to the beach, shops and places to eat.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights for a wedding nearby. We were so disappointed in the room. It did not smell clean, and no one ever came to clean it or change our sheets or towels. We called the office, but still no one ever came to clean. There is no wi fi in the rooms, only in... More

Had a really bad trip from the North to get to Hatteras, When we arrived at this Inn, could not believe the wonderful and warm welcome when we walked into the office, the manager was very in touch with our needs, especially there was a young man named Ryan working the desk who could not do enough for us, Will...

We booked our anniversary getaway at Hatteras Island Inn the weekend before the 4th of July. We had never been to the Outer Banks and were not at all sure what to expect, but we LOVED it. The staff were very friendly, the room was clean, and the beach was literally a short stroll outside of the room. My husband... More

We stayed here for one night while visiting the outer banks. We had been accustomed to spending half as much on our hotel rooms while traveling. So in comparison, it was high priced for the same type of room. But we understood that it would be for where we were. We also preferred to stay in that area rather than... More

We stayed here expecting a three star hotel as advertised. There was no internet service, the televisions are old and the entire screen was purple. The only place you can use internet is the lobby which is NOT air conditioned. The tubs did not drain the water. Find another place.

This is a good place to stay if you're not looking for luxury. I don't mean that in a bad way either. It's true they are doing renovations to a lot of the rooms, and I guess will eventually get all rooms reprinted etc. our room was clean, well stocked, towels etc and the bed was comfortable. Coffee and microwave... More
