This is an older hotel but they continue to renovate and update. The bed was very comfortable and the room very clean. Breakfast had a nice selection cereal, waffles, pancakes, eggs, sausage, fresh fruits. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The WiFi was much faster than the last time we stayed there.

The room was clean and the service was top notch. We had an issue with a running toilet on first check in (this stuff happens), but the front desk was quick to bring up a new set of keys to a new room. We didn't even have to go back downstairs. The breakfast was great and offered waffles, pancakes, eggs,... More

This is an old hotel with a great view. The rooms are tired, doors not secure and heating/cooling system loud. Off season it was around $50 per room which made it acceptable. I'm sure the on-season price is much higher and at that price I certainly would NOT stay here. Included breakfast is average, wi-fi was average, had some problems... More

As the name implies, this hotel is right on the Atlantic Ocean with easy access to the beach area. It is an older property with exterior entry to the rooms, but is a very well maintained hotel in a great location in Kill Devil Hills. All kinds of restaurants are close by as is the Wright Brothers Memorial. Our king... More

We stayed here one night until we could meet up with the rest of our family at the rental house. The room was very clean, however the bathroom needs to updated very badly. This was our sons first trip to the beach so we wanted to make sure we stayed oceanfront at a reasonable price. Beach access is a very... More

This would have had higher ratings, as the room was clean and had amenities like a microwave and small refrigerator. However, the room had a strong moldy, musty smell. Especially the sheets and pillows. Sorry, I would have like to have rated this higher. :(

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor, I appreciate your honesty and have noted to maintenance to be sure all is working to keep the humidity pulled out of the room, which can cause a stale smell if moisture is not properly controlled within the room.

My boyfriend and I had reserved a room at another hotel but left because it was so nasty, this hotel was more than welcoming and very friendly staff. Although the room was not perfect and some ants, it worked when we had nowhere else to go.

Way over priced, with no real ocean view, although the sound is Devine. Our first room was had dirty sheets with hair and a stain. So gross! We told the front desk and were given room number two, which had not been vacuumed. Piles of wet sand on the rug with dirt and papers throughout the room. Told the front... More

We stayed at the Quality Inn Carolina during Labor Day, Friday to Monday. It was our first visit to the OBX. We paid more for a beach view and king size bed. No real view of the ocean and the room smelled horribly. It had a powerful overwhelming moldy, dank /not clean odor. The bathroom shower faucet would run, not... More
