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. I primarily selected it because it had good reviews and ocean view rooms with balconies at prices more reasonable... More

Stayed here during a recent trip to the Outer Banks area of NC.

Room was comfy w/ double beds for 2 adults. Direct TV in the room worked well. SO thankful... More

I stayed here with a friend who was running the Obx Marathon while I ran the Southern 6 10k, and we had a good time. It was fairly convenient to all the places we needed to go, parking was ample with much of it covered, and check in and check out were a breeze. The indoor pool and hot tub... More

Congratulations on running in the Southern 6 and to your friend on running the Marathon – 2 great races. We are glad that you got to enjoy the indoor hot tub and pool after your run – I am sure that it felt great on those tired muscles. Thank you for choosing the Nags Head Inn Oceanfront as your base...

We stayed at the Nags Head Inn in June which is the perfect time to visit the beach. The hotel is on the beach, a short walk across the parking lot and over the wooden stairs to reach the sand. Parking was easy, right onsite and free; there was plenty of parking, even for a weekend. After driving five hours... More

An out of season visit so there were few guests. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Everything was average..nothing special to set it apart from other hotels. Situated at the beach. To get to the beach you had to walk stairs up to a deck and then descend stairs to reach the beach...this takes you over the large sand burm.... More

Thank you for staying with us during your visit to the Outer Banks. The quieter off-season is a great time to vacation here and we are glad that you got to experience it. In addition to the steps, our new beach walkway also has a ramp that leads to a deck at the top of the dune. It is a... More

We looked forward to being on the beach and hearing the ocean at night. This place did not disappoint us about that. The location was also good to restaurants and shopping. The room was clean but not up to the price. One big disappointment was the breakfast. Advertising says breakfast but a scone, juice or coffee is not my idea... More

My wife and I and another couple enjoyed a wonderful 4 night long weekend at the Nags Head Inn (more of a hotel than an inn). It was centrally located on the Outer Banks right on the beach. The sunrises and moonrises were equally spectacular in their own way out over the ocean from our 3rd floor balconies and beds.... More

Didn't have any problems. The pool was nice and the jacuzzi too. Nice view of the ocean from the jacuzzi. Quick access to the beach. Didn't see much of the staff but no complaints. The rooms were standard. I would stay somewhere else next time though just because I can find better prices at smaller motels/hotels.
