Party of 3 on OBX duck hunting trip, and our guide referred us to Shutters. We arrived late at 11:30pm on Thursday and were greeted warmly by the front desk. Although our first night sleep was short (got up at 4:15am), it was good. A comfortable, clean room with only minor cosmetic blemishes that even the largest and best chains... More

This was one of their newly renovated "dune view" rooms. However, since we were on the 2nd floor, it effectively became an... More
