This property is well-maintained and convenient to most attractions on the Outer Banks. The staff was courteous and helpful at all times. Just a couple of comments about things that might be improved upon. First, for a property charging the prices that it does, the 'complimentary' breakfast is woefully lacking. The bare offerings are coffee, juice and horrid-tasting 'sweet potato... More

We just checked out of Nags Heads Inn after a short overnight stay. We actually wish we could stay longer! We had a room on the third floor. Since we were only there for one night for a wedding, we opted for a (lower priced) street side room. The room was spacious with a comfortable king size bed and a... More

The hotel was just as I expected from the pictures and reviews; clean, friendly, and on the beach in a great location in Nags Head. I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was! We never heard the neighbors, the people above us (we were on the 4th floor), or hallway traffic, so we were all able to get some... More

When we opened the door, the curtains were open and the first site we saw was the ocean. We were on the 4th floor and the view was fantastic. The room was large and comfortable. We drank our coffee on the balcony each morning. Coffee and pastries were served on the 2nd floor. Initially, I was hesitant about sweet potato... More

Excellent beach front hotel. Very family friendly and low key. Outstanding ocean front views - recommend getting a room on the 5th floor. Very beautiful and quiet beach side - not a lot of people crowding the view of the ocean. If you are looking for a wonderful location to spend a long weekend, I think the Nags Head Inn... More

Stayed over the weekend with several friends. The location is nice and the rooms are ok. The room I was in had a very noisy AC that seemed to struggle to keep the room cool. The beds are double beds and are a little too small for 2 adults. If you wish to have a true ocean view you should... More

Nags Head is the ideal location to stay if you are going to be visiting several villages/towns throughout the Outer Banks. It is a short drive from Duck, Corolla, Roanoke, Manteo, Rodanthe & Cape Hatteras. The Nags Head Inn was a great hotel! It is a casual hotel that is run very efficiently. I cannot stress how clean and organized... More

I would not pay the price for this place again. Full size beds are small. Hot tub full of sand. Two rooms have been converted to breakfast area where you can have a prepackaged danish or biscuit. Right down to the art on the walls, everything here seems done on the cheap. Not worth the rate.

We strive to give all of our guests a positive vacation experience and are sorry that you did not enjoy your time here. The sweet potato biscuits that we serve each morning are made fresh and delivered to us daily by a local restaurant. The art throughout the hotel are all photographs done by a local artist.

We were on the 5th floor facing the ocean - it was awesome! But the A/C unit made so much noise it was hard to sleep. Lots of steps to climb to get to the beach. The ocean view room was the only thing that made the room worth the high price.

My family and I stopped over for the night on our way South. We were able to park in the covered area next to the hotel entry. A plus to keeping the overnight sea spray off the car. The 4th floor room was larger than expected. It was neat and clean. We found the beds to be quite comfortable. The... More
