Hotel seemed overpriced for what you got. The location on the beach did help, and I did have a room that overlooked the Ocean. Hotel is clean but some parts of the room seem dated. Hotel staff was very helpful.

My wife and I stayed here in October for a little retreat, It was enjoyable watching the waves from our ocean view room. It's a nice hotel, just a little dated, it could use some new carpets, and maybe a few other things. Still a nice place to visit. Great restaurants close by.

My wife and I went on vacation in July 2013, we are the type to just head our car in a direction and just go spontaneously, so we decided on the outer banks. My advice is to plan ahead if you go to the banks, as it's not as easy to get lodging on a whim. As far as this... More

Pleasantly surprised by this beach hotel. My expectations were exceeded with a very clean, update hotel room. Great view from Oceanside balcony. Very quite in December, off season is my favorite time in the Outer Banks. Limited breakfast 'pastry' included, the sweet potato biscuits with ham were delicious. Small indoor pool was a bonus for the kids.

We were heading to Manteo to enjoy the Winter Lights and decided to stay the night. I wasn't expecting much, knowing what beach accommodations can be like. But this place was terrific. It was the end of December and we were one of a dozen or so who stayed overnight. The room was very clean with a fresh aroma. We... More

We spent 5 nights at the Nags Head Inn in September 2013. We had a 5th floor ocean view room that I would definitely recommend.

Meh, nothing exciting here. The beach proximity is nice; the facility is basic. It is a bit threadbare and could use a little update. Staff are cheerful and helpful. Nags Head is home to many shops and has a great many rental options: bikes, sup, surf boards, etc. Restaurants are convenient and nearby. The noise from small refrigerators is a... More
