A typical old fashioned motel facade on a strip of tourist lodgings. We rented the honeymoon suite as it was the only available room. It was clean and spare upon entry with an equipped kitchenette. The jacuzzi was another plus. The room had a great outdoor balcony with beautiful views of the dunes, Atlantic ocean with beach, and Jennette's pier.... More

This is our second trip to Blue Heron. My wife and I just stayed five nights here. The accommodations are bar none and the all ocean front rooms are great. This is an older motel but it is probably the cleanest place that we've stayed at. They have an indoor pool and a couple of outdoor pools. I would suggest... More

Our long wkend was about friends turning 50! Celebrated at Sugar Creek Restaurant (Awesome food and service) & enjoying the beach. And what a bonus Jennette's Pier being so close. We all had such a great time, Hotel, Restaurant and Beach made the time we spent in Nags Head the best. We are planning this to become a regular event.

This place is truly amazing from the moment we stepped onto the property until we had to leave due to the impending hurricane it was an awesome experience. We arrived and were greeted by Kathy. She is very genuine and gave us excellent recommendations we felt comfortable and relaxed and welcomed. I cannot say enough about the property itself, it... More

We are so glad we found this hotel. This is a smaller family owned property. The office staff was extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The hotel is a little older, but very well taken care of. We stayed on the second floor in room 10. The second and third floor rooms offer views of the ocean. There... More

I chose this motel after searching TripAdvisor, needing a good location at a good price. This was it!! The motel was perfect for our 5 days/ 4 nights on the northern Outer Banks. The location was convenient to all tourist sites of Corolla, Kitty Hawk, Manteo and Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The Motel sits on the beach drive, a block... More

This was a lovely little motel. It was very clean and from the 3rd floor had lovely views out the front of the sound, and of the ocean from the back. I'm glad I saw the reviews saying to bring your own pillows as it was slightly smokey smelling. Also bring your own shampoos, hair dryers, etc. The staff was... More
