The hotel is old and musty and the "smoking area" is located on the stairwell directly outside the rooms. Our room door was located directly by the smoking area and there were employees of the hotel sitting in the stairwell smoking as we came in and went out. The staff was very nice, however as other reviews have mentioned, the... More

You are two blocks from the beach and the hotel has no elevator. Guests should understand this up front. There is a golf cart shuttle to the beach available, but we just walked. We were as close as many of the rental houses at a fraction of the cost. Continental breakfast was pretty simple, but a cup of coffee and... More

We booked this for one night. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The pool looked nice but we didn't have time to use it. The place was older but modernized and clean. The carpets n the hallway could be replaced to improve the overall appearance of the place. The staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast... More

From my two previous reviews, I gave this hotel a 5 star rating with nothing but positive feedback. However, I regret to say I cannot do the same this time around. Using my two wonderful experiences of the Outer Banks Inn, I booked a one night stay during the summer busy season. When I checked in everything went smoothly and... More

With a #2 rating we were expecting a little bit nicer hotel. For the price it was good. The staff are very nice & accommodating. We requested the table & chair removed from our room so we could fit the baby's pack & play...there was someone there within 10 min. The breakfast left much to be desired. Our shower faucet... More

I booked a room for a wedding trip that required me to stay "at the beach". I found this hotel online for a much more affordable price than the hotel where the bride and groom were staying. I read previous reviews from several sites, so I knew what to expect. The building itself is an older building, and on the... More

Does fail to mention NO elevator, no staff offering to assist with luggage. Rooms were very small and was an older place with cosmetics but still was very used in appearance. No canopy to off load out of elements. The only plus was that it was convenient to a lot of places of intrust. I was really disappointed with the... More

Ricky - I apologize that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. We are certainly smaller than most of our competitors but work hard to offer excellent service and ensure everyone gets the most out of their vacation. We typically have someone assisting with luggage and apologize this wasn't the case during your check-in. I do hope you were able... More

We booked 2 rooms for one night and were thrilled with our stay! While it is not ocean front, it is only a short 2-3 minute walk and is close to shopping and dining. Our rooms were spacious and very clean! We will be back!

The staff at Outer Banks Inn truly sets it apart from all the rest! Krystal is always so friendly and helpful and even remembered us from last year! We had an issue with our television (due to the previous occupants using parental controls), and the manager on duty came right over to take care of it. Our family of four... More
