My family stayed here for four nights in July 2014. The Kill Devil Hills location makes all OBX attractions easily accessible. We traveled north to view the wild horses and climb the Currituck lighthouse and south all the way to Ocracoke. The room is small but adequate. The hotel is beach-side, with no streets to cross. Rooms include a free... More

I carefully researched hotels in our price range for our summer vacation to OBX since I am very choosy when it comes to hotels! The front desk ladies were very pleasant, the room was very clean, and the beach was very close! We were on first floor so had a dune view, but the ocean was so close it wasn't... More

I booked this off of trip advisor reviews and it lived up to the expectations. It was great to support a local business and this hotel was a great.. The housekeeping staff was beyond phenomenal, and the room was spotless every day. The views were great. My complaints are very minor, the breakfast was good but would have been better... More

We stayed here for one night -this was our third and last night of our mini eastern shore motorcycle vacation. Our room was on the first floor behind the staircase!!! I was hoping for a better location room considering I had booked way back in February. Anyway, we enjoyed the outside pool- they also have an inside pool and the... More

My entire family stayed here for our daughter's wedding and couldn't have been happier.. The front desk, the oceanfront views, the breakfast, the rooms, the location, the check-in. The staff was so helpful and friendly.

The hotel is conveniently located on the beach and near great restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful and our housekeeper was great too! We went as a couple and noticed that most of the people staying there were families, which was fine, but did not get a chance to visit the hot tub due to children being in there... More

My personal opinion is that my room was not worth the price for one night. I have stayed in a lot of different hotels over the years and this was more expensive than some of the finest hotels I have stayed in. Don't get me wrong. The front desk checkin was great. The staff was friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The... More
