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

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

My wife and I booked 2 nights which included our anniversary. We were looking for a basic room, nothing fancy. The hotel called us 2 hours before our arrival (seemed a great practice) to confirm. When we arrived, we found no rooms ready. We also discovered, AFTER they ran an authorization on our card, that half or more of the... More

Th rooms were clean and nice. Also, the staff were very pleasant and helpful for our stay. The hotel had good access to the beach, even though it was a slight walk. They had a tower to climb to the top for a view of the island and the lighthouse, which was very romantic.
