We are veterans of visiting NC Nags Head area and decided to to try a hotel instead of house renting. Through the reviews on trip advisor we chose this delightful place to stay. We have a beautiful view from our personal deck with a spacious suite so we can enjoy inside living space, too! Staff is friendly, helpful and this... More

The beds were comfortable. We had a small balcony, and had a nice view of the ocean. The indoor pool area was clean and had several... More

When we first checked in for a two night stay, the desk agent said we were being charged the regular rate (which wasn't bad) but if we were AAA or AARP members, she could give us a reduced rate. I pulled out my AARP card and she lowered our bill by $50! What a pleasant surprise. We chose this hotel... More

Thank you for your review. If you call the hotel directly for reservations we can let you know exactly what is available (and the price differences) for your vacation time and avoid any misunderstandings. The rates for oceanfront rooms are higher on the top (5th floor) than on the 3rd and 4th floors and the rooms on the 2nd floor... More

Hotel was very clean ….which is about all I care about. Front desk staff were ok… not super friendly. Breakfast in morning was not worth getting out of bed… mainly just coffee. Person serving breakfast was a bit on the rude side. But place was clean and comfortable and beach out front was beautiful. We arrived late in the evening... More

Pros: - Great location on the beach and not too far from places to eat (but few within walking distance) - Beautiful, wide, clean beach. - Nice walk way over the sand dune (see below) - Sweet Potato Biscuit Breakfast was decent (think little biscuits with little ham, but still tasty) - Nice size room, clean, comfortable bed, nice bath/shower....

Thank you for taking the time to review the Nags Head Inn Oceanfront. As you noted, our second floor oceanfront rooms do have a view of the ocean but not of the beach. For this reason they are priced lower than the oceanfront rooms on the upper floors - you still have a private balcony looking out at the beautiful... More

Stayed here during a long weekend in November. Although the weather was cool, was still able to walk right out to the beach and also lay on the balcony next to the indoor pool/hot tub.

Thank you for reviewing your November stay with us at the Nags Head Inn Oceanfront. Most people think of the Outer Banks as a summer destination and do not realize how great all seasons are here. The slower pace and quiet wide open beaches in the "off-season" is sometimes just what you need to relax and re-charge. We hope to... 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
