Great rooms, very clean. Very friendly staff, great prices! Two pools (1 indoor ) Excellent breakfast. Can't beat it. Will be going back. Our new favorite place to stay on the banks! Wish we could've stayed longer! Fishing was great right off the surf behind the motel!

Our room was oceanfront. We walked in and ahhhh!! Our view was fantastic as was our stay. The hotel was close enough to lots of activities but located on a serene beach. We will definitely be rebooking our vacation here next year!

My fiance and I took a spur of the moment road trip to the Outer Banks, NC. We made same day hotel reservations as we went along. Our second night of the trip we stayed at Shutter on the Banks. The location is great-- right on the beach, close to restaurants, and close to entertainment. Our room smelled a little... More

Rooms are average size. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They offer a military discount. Fridge in every room. Beach access was great and loved the gazebo to sit and drink coffee and watch the sun come up.

We found Shutters on The Banks after searching for a hotel for the weekend after Labor Day. Their price for a 2 queen with kitchen was quoted at $119 plus tax, which ended up totaling $156 after all was said and done. The location is great and the beach access was wonderful but to be honest it wasn't the greatest... More

My husband and I were able to plan a quick getaway to celebrate our July wedding. After doing some research I decided on Shutters for our stay. The price per night is average for the area and I liked that we had easy and quick beach access. The staff is super friendly and the manager assisted us in directions to... More

This is a great place on the Outer Banks. It is near a lot of food places and has a good beach. Nothing more to ask! Kept clean by a good staff and after we got the TV system adjusted that worked fine as did the internet. Basic, but good breakfasts and lots of coffee!!

Our family of 4 spent one night here Labor Day Weekend because the house we rented was not ready until Saturday. I was disappointed when the rate doubled from Thursday to Friday night but because of the reviews we decided it would be worth the stay. The tile floor entrance was very sandy and the room felt moist and damp.... More

We loved staying here and the staff was AWESOME when we asked to be moved to the ground floor. They moved all of our stuff for us! Excellent free breakfast with waffle maker etc. Very comfortable beds and clean. Will definitely go back!
