This is a privately owns hotel, not part of a chain. This owner believes in quality and cleanliness of his hotel, Our room looked brand new. Plenty of towels and a warm breakfast. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Actually booked this hotel by accident. Clicked in the wrong button. So I decided to further read the reviews on it. It actually had better reviews then the more fancier hotel, so I just decided to go with it. The hotel was much nicer than I anticipated and the entire staff was awesome and friendly.

The Inn was priced very well for being right on the ocean. We were on the forth floor. The breakfast was lame but not a deal breaker. The pool was warm and clean. The hot tub was clean but small. I would stay there again.

The place is no frills. But....it's clean and right on the beach!!! We had a ocean view room on the 4th floor and it was perfect! The pool was great but the hot tub was tiny.... It's okay though....not a deal breaker. U would stay again in a heartbeat. The staff was so nice. My only criticism was the breakfast.... More

I understand we visited in the busy season, and we only stayed for 2 nights so we couldn't rent a house, we had to get a hotel room. Based on the reviews others wrote my choice was this hotel. I don't understand how the reviews were so high. The room we stayed in was partially remodeled, but they definitely stopped... More

We stayed there over the Holidays. The hotel is older, but has been remodeled. The rooms were clean, and the view was wonderful. They have a heated indoor pool and Jacuzzi. The staff was so nice. They did have a light breakfast, but it consisted mainly of packaged pastries, juice, and coffee. Overall, the experience was great!

we have a few hotels we stay at when we are in the OBX this is one of them, one of a select few that have an indoor pool & hot tub must haves for your mini winter VACA, they also usually do a wine social on Friday evenings I think they have a good breakfast as well.

We spent a few days in Nags Head and chose the Nags Head Inn because it seemed to be a good location, good hotel, and good price. This all proved to be true and we were very happy with our choice.
