Okay let me start by saying we did not pony up for the ocean view and I am a Marriott million pointer - so don't often stay in these type hotels... so my experience wasn't that great... beds too small for my wife and I, we did not like the coffee or the sweet potato "biscuits" and our room was...

Great place nestled right in by the beach. Staff was super helpful; especially Jeff when I came down early for my morning walks on the beach. He helped with directions, getting my MC trailer freed up (was blocked in). Always hot coffee in the lobby in morning. Sweet potato biscuits at Ms Shirl's are great!!

We enjoyed staying here with a deal of 3 nights, the fourth is free. The hotel is right on the beach. We had a fantastic view of the ocean and beach from our fourth floor room. Definitely stay on the fourth or fifth floor for the best view. It was nice to have a balcony but when we were there... More

We've been staying at the Nags Head Inn every summer since 2004. It is extremely clean, has a knowledgeable staff, lots of parking, and the indoor pool and hot tub overlook the beautiful beach. There is a small café on the second floor where they offer complimentary pastries, coffee and juice, but the hostess seems to monitor the food so... More

Had always wanted to stay at this hotel some time so was very pleased to have found a great deal online on just the dates I needed. Our room was on the 5th floor street side but we could see the sound so we still had a water view. Had been remodeled and it was also very clean. Will definitely... More

We had a wonderful stay. The staff is very friendly. The inn is very clean. I would recommend this place to anyone. The steps and deck to beach are new. It also includes a ramp which is nice. The indoor pool is good on a rainy day. The early check in was a nice surprise. The maids are nice.

What a surprise...we opt for the parking lot side of the hotel but didn't feel we were short changed for not having ocean view. Older hotel that has been maintained beautifully and appears to have had remodeling. Clean large room on fourth floor; very comfortable bed and bathroom. Beautiful access to the beach that gave us access to beautiful photographs... More

My wife and I took a quick trip to the Outer Banks last week. We went sort of "last minute". I checked hotels and saw only good ratings on the Nags Head Inn but they were all booked up save for one room. The room was not Oceanside but we took it. When we got to the Inn we were... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nags Head Inn is the only Outer Banks hotel that features over 4 acres of pristine oceanfront, and is located in the middle of what locals affectionately refer to as, 'Old Cottage Row' in Nags Head. Nags Head Inn Oceanfront Hotel has become famous for delivering the Original Outer Banks Oceanfront Experience for nearly a quarter of a century by offering our highly valued guests honest vacation value. According to Outer Banks hotel reviews, our guests love the recent renovations on our 4 acres of beautiful oceanfront sand dunes, pristine beach, manicured Bermuda lawns and lush barrier island gardens… relaxing year round in our spa, indoor heated swimming pool or jumping into the beautiful Atlantic Ocean just outside their doors. We love making lasting memories happen and we’ve been told we're pretty good at it. It is our aim to make every guest become a repeat guest and offer you a vacation superior to other Outer Banks hotels. ... more   less
