This is a standard Holliday Inn express room: It’s clean, decent in terms of space, offers an acceptable Internet speed access and it’s located at the very beginning of your run down through OBX (in case you’re headed south). The plus of this hotel is being neighbors to a friendly and good Chinese restaurant with a good sushi bar.

I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Kitty Hawk. We booked through Priceline, and got a pretty reasonable rate. The location is excellent, especially for us, since we were heading to a house rental in duck. Are room was a decent size - two double beds, (added a crib) and felt we had plenty of room to move...

I was here to do some outer banks fishing and stayed at this hotel for a few days. It is clean and conveniently located. The rooms are smaller than a other Holiday Inn Express hotels I have stayed in and the cost was very high. I understand it is a beach destination but it's still not worth the money you... More

My family just stayed here for 2 nights on points. We stayed on the second floor and had an ocean view. The hotel is older, but it is extremely clean and well maintained. The bathroom was small but had a great shower head. The sink is separate from the shower, which was nice. The staff were all very friendly and... More

As a Platinum level IHG Reward member, I have stayed at many Holiday Inn Hotels around the country. I feel that I know the Holiday Inn standards, and this hotel does not come close. I have taken enough college level economics classes to understand the principles of supply and demand. The demand for overnight accommodations in this area is high,... More

1) I just returned from my trip to the Outer Banks. Booking only a few days before my visit with my family, I was somewhat limited in my choices. I have stayed at several Holiday Inn Expresses and have not been disappointed. This seemed a logical choice as many other places had questionable reviews with spotty service and other issues... More

Had a great time for our 4th time staying here!! The hospitality is always great as well as the breakfast served in the mornings!

If you are staying anywhere on the Outer Banks, you can expect hotel prices to reflect the fact that there is a scarcity of rooms. So any reviewer who complains about the price/location shouldn't be taken too seriously -- it's all about location and supply and demand. The hotel is clean and fairly new, and the staff was some of... More

This hotel does not do the HIE name justice. Because of the location, it is expensive (I stayed on points and used more than at most other properties). It was disappointing that the hotel is not oceanfront, but requires a bit if a walk and road crossing to get to the beach. The room was adequate, but it and the... More
