I'm staying here for three nights for the Wings Over Water Outer Banks Birding Festival, and am very impressed. Excellent off-season rates for a clean, comfortable, well-appointed room. And the location, right on the beach, is excellent. Breakfast buffet was good, too.

Plus its on the OCEAN :) Check in was smooth and quick, room was a bit small, but we weren't going to be spending much time in the room. Was warm enough we went swimming in the outside pool, they had speakers that played... More

Found this to be a hidden gem in the area! Pleasant, friendly staff, clean facility, great beach access - all for a great price to be so close to water! Have been in a couple area hotels and all have damp, musty smell - not this place! Loved the balcony view and the evening breeze! Definitely plan to return!

Excellent location with a clean room and wonderful staff. Beach access as well as convenience to the Wright Memorial and several excellent restaurants. (See reviews of Owen's and The Black Pelican.) Room was a little "musty" when we arrived, but we expect that near the water and brought a vanilla infuser and never noticed it again. Breakfast was nice to... More

Front desk was very efficient. Our room is nice and mostly comfortable. Could use a table outside between the two chairs. Room clean, nice pool, and convenient location. Good parking as well. Sleep quality and rooms were good

It was a vary clean and nice place. The staff was vary nice and helpful. The breakfast was good. The pools and spa are nice. The beach access was wonderful! We stayed in a dune view room and it was a good view. We would defiantly stay there again whenever we go back.

The hotel is very clean and right on the beach. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring the area. We have a ground floor efficiency but next time will request a 2nd floor. The people above us was noisy the entire week.

Wonderful hotel right on the beach. Cute gazebo and walkway to the sand. All the amenities you could want. Continental breakfast until 10:00 in the morning is a plus. Friendly staff and great comfy beds!
