We stayed April 4th to 6th. The room was nice. We got a double bed and ended up with a 1st floor room in the 2 story building. They have a sliding door to a small patio. Pro: the room was spacious, right on the beach, nice deck on beach, quick access to tons of stores and restaurants, nice parking,... More

They give you tiny sized pillows, not real blankets and it is a run down hotel! They said our room had a "pool view" which was true but their pool is in the parking lot! The positives is that it is pet friendly and the location of the hotel. I would recommend only the oceanfront rooms but I wouldn't leave... More

It gets 3 stars for being clean, right on the beach, and relatively cheap for off season. But it's old, and everything within shows its age. The paint is worn off the fridge, but it works. The bathroom cabinet is little more than a piece of plywood, but it's there. Clean linens, shower. No lid on toilet seat so constantly... More

Great location, clean, comfortable rooms @ a great value. Stayed in the non-smoking 4 Season building & had an awesome view of the ocean. The staff was very friendly &... More

We arrived at the Inn nearly at closing time for their lobby,but the man there was very courteous and helpful.My wife wanted an extra blanket for our bed and he personally delivered it to our room. Overall for the price during the off-season ..it was reasonable...we would stay here again.If youre looking for super fast wi-fi you will not get... More

We recently decided to take a weekend trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina in the middle of Winter. It was Feb. 28th. We only needed to stay one night. I contacted the John Yancey Inn ahead of time and booked a room at a really great rate. When we arrived I asked for an upgrade to a room... More

We have stayed at John Yancey 2 times the past 2 years and are headed there in January, 2015 for our anniversary. The rooms are a great value, even in the off-season and the staff are helpful. Get a ground floor unit on the beach and just walk out onto the sand. Really nice if the weather is warm by... More

We needed a pet friendly room for one night and were pleasantly accommodated. Room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. Great shower with hot water! Staff was friendly and provided a nice breakfast in the morning. Nice quiet room during off season. We will definitely be back, as we often make short trips. Thank you!

I typically rent a house in the Outer Banks and this is the first time staying in a hotel. The staff was friendly and they upgraded me to an Oceanfront room (it's off-season). The room was clean and simple with a refrigerator, microwave, coffee machine, iron, and flat screen TV. I had a balcony to watch the sun rise. They... More
