My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night. We had a Sunday to Sunday rental in Kill Devil Hills but wanted to spend a day in Cape Hatteras before heading to our hotel for the week. This was one of the only places I could find that would accommodate a one night stay in the area. We love going... More

This hotel is very comfortable. The owner was very nice to deal with. He personally checked my room on arrival to make sure it was ready. For a woman travelling alone, I was very comfortable here. I had a king room on the ground floor. The only complaint I have is that the wifi was very spotty. Sometimes it worked... More

We were staying with family in a house on the island. A fight broke out and we were not able to stay. So we are driving through at midnight looking for an open place. The rates are high for what you get. I would expect included breakfast at $150 a night. The bed was comfortable and the linens were fresh.... More

Last minute trip to the beach with a family of 4, Hatteras Island Inn was able to accommodate us all. Just minutes from the beach! Wonderful staff, and great coffee across the street!! We will return for another stay soon.

Although the price was higher in the summer than my first visit in the spring, the accommodations were great as good as ever. Everything was inn working order and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful with recommendations. Would go again if given the chance....

I would definitely try to find another hotel. Room was very bad! Towels were tiny and thin, duvet was slippery and noisy. Beds was very uncomfortable. The pool was nice and the hotel was close to the beach. When we walked into our room, it smelled of mildew. I would never stay there again. Very disappointed!

My wife and I spent a week exploring the Outer Banks on motorcycles, using the Hatteras Island Inn as a "jump-off" point. I didn't consider that the hotel had no elevator, and we were put on the second floor, difficult for my wife (arthritis in the knees). The next day I requested a move to the first floor. The staff...

After taking one look at our hotel room at the hotel across the street, we knew right away there was no way were staying there. In a pinch, we called the Hatteras Island Inn across the street and were able to get right in with a 2 night stay. We were relieved to find the room very clean and cool... More

Average motel, good price for summer at the beach. Pros: A block away from the beach Seems clean, safe, and quiet Friendly staff Cons: No wifi No breakfast offerings Maid made the bed and replaced the towels, but did not replace toiletries nor apparently do any cleaning.
