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. :(

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.

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

This hotel was fine. It's on the ocean, so its very convenient. The breakfast was very good for a hotel lobby breakfast. The room was fine. Everything was clean. Service was great. No complaints. Just don't expect grand luxurious accomadations with lots of extras. But if you want a nice place with a comfortable bed, this should cover it! I... More

Let me preface this review by saying I frequently travel to OBX on short family getaways and have stayed at many hotels in the area. I am also an admitted germaphobe who is a stickler for a clean place to stay. Certain people have panned this hotel, but I truly say it is not half as bad as I expected.... More
