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

First let me say I have never in my life left a negative review. Normally I give places the benefit of the doubt that sometimes they may have a bad day. However this is NOT the case here. My husband and I are Holiday Inn vacation club owners as well as IHG members, we stay at Holiday Inns pretty much... 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

Not the best hotel on the Island. I used points and I have stayed in nicer Holiday Inns before. I will say it is safe and the rooms were decent. So I rate it average since I could not find anything bad about the hotel.

Clean rooms, very quiet. Front desk staff were friendly & efficient. Small bathroom with very little counter space. Breakfast room seemed small for size of hotel. Location is fairly central for Kitty Hawk. Only complaint - this was expensive for a Holiday Inn Express.

Quite swank, and a sturdy feel to everything from the room appointments to the facilities and services. Quiet throughout. A bit pricey, close to the highest rate I've paid for a stay in this chain but not excessive for lodging in a destination hotel. Despite being remote, out of the way, the Outer Banks is host to a community as... More

Easy access from busy highway. Nice swimming pool. Friendly helpful staff, especially Shirlene. Fantastic water pressure in tub/shower. Small vanity area is the biggest drawback for me. Beds are comfortable with assorted pillow firmness. Comfortable chairs in room. Included onsite breakfast is very good and has good assortment. Not on the beach, but very handy.

Booked last minute and was pleased by the result. Exactly what you'd expect from HIExpress from quick check-in to yummy free breakfast. Really liked their house blend coffee! Close enough to all the attractions and easy to reach from the highway. Definitely get a room on the second floor as noise from footsteps was heavy, even on the second floor.... More
