My husband and I stayed here for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Staff were very friendly, and we had a seamless experience checking in. We had a king room on the 3rd floor with a view of the ocean that was to die for. The cleanliness of the room was immaculate. Bed was comfortable, and it was great to... More

This motel is very, very clean I will say that and staff are extremely nice. Rooms are large, great views of both sound and ocean. Beds are uncomfortable, microwaves 20 yrs old, 19" TV with terrible sound, Indoor pool was nice. Sound proofing not good kids running early in the morning sounded like they were coming through the wall or... More

The room was immaculately clean, and comfortable. We lived hanging out in the room. We stayed in December. The heater is very quiet and efficient, I suspect the air conditioning works well too. It is a short walk to Jenette's Pier, which is part of the North Carolina Aquariums. Lots of people surf fish there or use the rather impressive... More

If you are looking for a fancy hotel with all the finest, then don't even get out of your car. BUT if you want a CLEAN hotel with amazing views, friendly people, and resonable rates then The Blue Heron is for you. We have stayed a lot of places up and down the Outer Banks and the Blue Heron is... More

This hotel is ok for a 3-4 day stay but if you are planning on staying more than a week, it can get a little claustrophobic in the small rooms, especially if you are traveling with two kids! The rooms all have two double beds, an old analog color tv, a table with two chairs, a bathroom, and a balcony.... More

Every year for ten years of my elderly mother's life she and I took a trip for a week or two. We would look at a map of the US and say "that looks neat lets go there." We would hop on a plane, rent a car and explore places we'd never Been. We didn't have GPS or Internet then... More

When I entered our room, I felt we had stepped back in time. I should have figured this out when the front desk (in a separate building) gave us a real key on a plastic keychain. Our room had wood paneling, floral bedspreads with matching floral curtains, and the bathroom walls and tub were surrounded by aqua blue 3 x... More

I took my elderly parents to this motel for two nights because the ratings on trip advisor made it sound like a slice of heaven if you could realize that it's not the Marriott. It's very convenient as a home-base for running up and down the Outer Banks. It is only 4.5 miles from Manteo. Built in 1965, this hotel... More

Based on other reviews, we booked this hotel for a one night stay in advance of a week long Sunday to Sunday rental in Hatteras. The room was clean but this is a old 50's type facility and long in the tooth in all respects. It is pretty pedestrian and basic at best. The bathroom is 5X5 if that. The... More
