Traveled to OBX on business in the storm Tuesday night and stayed at Shutters. Had oceanfront room and was worried about drafts from 50-60 mph winds. Need not have worried, door sealed tight and I enjoyed the stay in very comfortable, newly remodeled room. Price was great for oceanfront and morning dawned windy but sunny. Got a chance to see...

Updated hotel, new bedding/mattresses/granite vanities. Solid continental breakfast to boot. The dune view room is very near the ocean and gives you a glimpse of ocean as well. Lovely outdoor sitting areas. I wold definitely recommend this hotel.

One of the days our family stayed an 8yr old boy went missing. The entire staff put everything on hold to help search for the missing child. It affected everyone in the hotel. The staff was so kind and friendly. They moved my dad to a room closer to ours without hesitation. The beach was literally in the back yard.... More

This hotel is a nice hybrid of a lower end business hotel and the usual old school Outer Banks motel. There are some nice updated decorative and comfort touches throughout, but overall the floor plan is a little awkward with the very tight bath, and a good bit of space that felt wasted to us (maybe if you had more...

I had read good things but was highly disappointed. The location is great, staff is friendly but the room - the toilet handle broke and when I went to shower the water backed up. When I removed the plug there was 'crap' of some sort stuffed around the drain. No way I was getting into that shower. The person I... More

Oceanfront room was a great location for us. The room is a good size but the sink area just inside the door is a little disconcerting. The toilet/bathroom area is very small but functions as long as you are comfortable enough to get dressed elsewhere. The rooms definitely need more hooks and shelves in the sink and bathroom area. The... More

I would really love to give this hotel a better rating, but I can't. The staff is wonderful and our housekeeper was just a doll. But, there are too many other things wrong. First, the room we were promised wasn't available, so we had to opt for a dune view. That was okay. Then, the bathroom was so small that... More

Though the staff weren't all that friendly and breakfast just okay, this has to be one of the better places to stay on the OBX. The price is reasonable, there is quick access to the beach, the rooms are comfortable and its easy to get to many of the best attractions. They have a nice pool and its relaxing overall.

So let me start off this review with saying that my husband and I love this place. We have been down multiple times in the summer and always enjoy ourselves...it's a great location, right on the beach, in the heart of KDH with many delicious restaurants and bars around. We know that this isn't a 5 star hotel and accept... More

We had a great time at Shutters this week..the room was very nice and clean, the walk to the beach was short, and the staff were helpful and courteous. Nice breakfast too! It was a perfect little mini vacation from all the cold weather we've been having. Can't wait to go back.
