The best thing about this hotel was definitely the people that work there. We stayed 2 nights. Incredibly helpful, thoughtful, and dedicated staff. Second best thing is the location. Within walking distance of the beach and at least 3 restaurants that are close by - 2 offering a fairly vibrant night life. The property itself is in desperate need of... More

Looks great from the outside. Once we walked down the hallways: the carpet is old and QUITE soiled. The furniture in our room was old and worn. The older front desk lady was NOT friendly AT ALL. This place charged us $202.00 for a $79 Red Roof Inn type room. AND IT WAS A WEEK DAY - not even the... More

We stayed at double queen beds room. The room is good size and clean. It can potentially be odd to some people to have the sink outside the bathroom. But I can see why they did it. It has a little coffee table with 2 seating chairs by the window. We stayed on the ground floor facing the busy highway... More

This hotel is not the most glamorous on the outer banks, but it has plenty of parking, comfortable beds, good breakfast offerings, a short path to the beach, and a staff second to none. We spent two nights here. The check-in was a breeze and the desk staff were friendly and able to answer questions about local restaurants and sites.... More

Our best stay in The Outer Banks to date. The room was very comfortable, the bed was nice, hot breakfast, quiet...everything you would want for a relaxing trip. The only negative was having to settle for 2 double beds. Other than that, great stay.

It's hard to find an affordable place to stay at the Outer Banks in the summer, but we've been very happy with Holiday Inn Express Kitty Hawk and have returned several times, even after trying two other places in the same price range.

For the Kitty Hawk area, this hotel is pretty darn good! Rooms have that "by the ocean" musty feel, but I've come to expect that from any hotel along the ocean or Gulf of Mexico. Even with that feel, the room was very clean, neat, and had a nice "homey" feel. Breakfast was standard Holiday Inn Express fare, but it... More
