3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for a weekend and loved that the property is right on the beach and close to really good restaurants. The building is older and the outside needs some maintenance; it was not very appealing. However the room was immaculate, very clean and tidy. It was also very spacious and included a fridge and microwave. Plus our balcony... More

Being that we were in the Outer Banks during Memorial Day weekend, it was tough to find a room. Those that were available were quite expensive. This was our first trip to the Outer Banks and so we just wanted to be on the beach. We booked at John Yancey too late to get an ocean front room but could... More

Very nice hotel on the beach. In the middle of most of the outer banks so can travel to quite a few attractions. Last time I was there they were working on upgrades and pool, so it must be even better. A small breakfast, tea/coffee/muffins and toast is complimentary. Look discounts and promotions on their Facebook page.

We tend to stay in mid priced hotels- and this one fits the bill. The oceanfront building is non smoking, a good complementary breakfast is offered along with a discount should you be able to stay in excess of three days. We prefer the third floor as the balcony view is great. We've stayed here on three different visits and... More

Room was spacious and very clean. We had a great view of the beach and the kids loved it! It was very quiet and comfortable for 3 of us for a week. I was (luckily) given a break in my work schedule and we left with no reservations anywhere or any idea where we were going. I stopped there and... More

Just stayed here for a week, and had a great time. Rooms were very nice and clean, the staff was awesome and could not have been more friendly. This is a prime location for the Outer Banks right in the middle of everything. I highly recommend staying here if you want a great time!

The John Yancey Inn is one of my favorite places to stay in KDH/Nags Head. The rooms are extremely clean, you're right on the beach, and the staff goes above and beyond to ensure that your stay is an enjoyable one. There's also a plethora of fantastic restaurants nearby, and the Harris Teeter is extremely close if you need to... More

Had another great week at the Yancey where I stayed during my annual trip to OBX. My room had a great ocean view and though I stayed in the Four Seasons building, I realized that the main building has a few rooms that are literally beach front - the porches are right on the sand. Pretty cool. The staff is... More
