We spent one night here on our way down the Outer Banks. The lady at reception was friendly and helpful. She helped us with the ferry timetables and with restaurant selection. The room was clean and we had a pleasant stay. I would stay here again.

It's not a 5 star hotel but for the price it's nice. It's quiet and the staff are friendly. Room was clean and the bathroom was clean. Overall it's above its rated 2 star hotel rating. Enjoyed it. It's very close to the beach for those who wish to get up early and fish a little.

Room freshly decorated, but air conditioning unit's fan made loud constant noise (scrapping), TV was old style, bathtub refinish failing near drain, and door lock and exterior paint of door was questionable. Bed OK, but not great. Hotel is a 4 (rating, not stars) in some areas, and a 2 in others, so average a 3 in the rating. Part... More

The staff is really nice, friendly and helpful with offering suggestions. We had a double room and one of the beds had not been changed but it was quickly addressed. The room was excessively deodorized which made me wonder what was being covered up. We were there only 2 nights,so, it was fine for a short stay. If I were... More

We visited the weekend before Memorial Day, and it seemed that there was a big push to get everything in tip-top shape for the upcoming holiday weekend. Our room was clean, comfortable, & quiet, in spite of all the ongoing construction and renovation going on during our visit. The hotel is very conveniently located within walking distance of the beach,... More

My biggest fear when booking rooms(especially in small private hotels) is that we'll get there and the room will be dirty. And, of course, by that time it's usually too late to book somewhere else. We found Hatteras Island Inn to offer a clean room for a decent price. WiFi is spotty outside of the office, but that was well... More

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.
