I read all of the reviews before booking a trip to this "RESORT" with a Groupon deal. The reviews all spoke highly of this place. Let me tell you, it was GROSS! We had a 3 night stay and ended up leaving after the second night and forfeiting our money to go to a clean hotel. Our room was old,... More

Hearing that our hotel did not meet a guest’s expectations is not what we look forward to. I can assure you that our housekeeping staff here adheres to strict procedures. This is not a typical guest experience we encounter and I'd like the opportunity to discuss with you in more detail at your convenience if you can reach me at... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Perfect for a long weekend getaway. Hotel is clean and staff is great. Wonderful hotel restaurant/bar, with patio outside overlooking the beach. Indoor pool is perfect. Access to tons of restaurants around the area. We're already planning our next getaway here!

We stayed in the Condo style room at it had everything we needed to make our own meals. We were even able to do our laundry.

Of course we did not reserve rooms in advance...so when getting rooms on the fly, you sometimes have to take what you can get! Overall, not too bad of a place, but for the cost, I would have expected alot nicer accommodations! Outdated furnishings, non-smoking hotel but our room had definitely been smoked in! Ants had a highway through the... More

This was a great stay, Cindy at the front desk answered all my questions about the area, and garret at the bar made some awesome drinks and great conversation. I've never had such personalized friendly service anywhere. This will be my go-to resort in the outer banks.
