Spent the Labor Day weekend (3 nights) in the "ocean view" room. You can't see the ocean unless you're 7 ft tall. There is a sand bank that blocks your view if you're on the ground floor. You have a patio, however the door locks don't work and therefore cannot be opened from outside. When returning from the beach you... More

We stayed for 6 nights and 1800 seems a bit pricey but comparable for the area I guess. The first night we arrived around 11:30 and the older lady at the front desk was down right ignorant. We came down and asked for some coffee and she said isn't there any in your room we replied we drank it and... More

My husband and I stayed here several years ago and we decided to stay here again. It was one of the best prices then, and still one of the best prices now. We paid under $200/night for a newly renovated oceanfront room with hot breakfast, microwave, mini-fridge, great location, and free wi-fi. Of course there were some things that were... More

Ok, I get it. I'm ocean front at OBX. But I paid over $300 for one night. I knew that since I booked online, but we wanted a one night getaway. Check in was a semi-friendly individual, I had to ask about internet and breakfast, that info wasn't provided. The room was ok, but very old and much in need... More

We decided to spend almost a week at this hotel. Booked direct online. Arrived to semi-friendly staff, hotel lobby clean and inviting. Checked in and proceeded to our room. First thing wife wanted to do was to open up balcony door and look at the ocean views . She couldn't get door opened. After assisting her with the door we... More

This comfort Inn is located on the beach, with beach facing rooms. I was treat like a guest by the staff. Jennifer on the front desk is professional, friendly and caring.

This hotel is on the ocean. A little pricy at $200 plus. We were willing to pay since only one nite. Adequate at best. We have 1st floor. No view since sand dunes are right there. Room was hard lived in by those before us. Has door to ocean in your room but can't access with key to re-enter. Wouldn't... More
