“Excellent beachfront hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

We stayed here for two nights off season in an oceanfront room. This is one of the only major chain hotels on the beach in this part of town. The room was very nice with a door which lead out to a balcony overlooking the ocean. There is a restaurant, Peppercorns that gave us drink specials and dinner specials coupons upon check in. Drinks were not over priced. Off the restaurant is a walkway down to the beach which is very clean and safe. Two blocks off the beach is the main road which goes south towards Hatteras and north towards Corolla. Everything and anything is on that road. You will not be far from restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies, urgent care centers, and shopping malls. The area is very safe. Beware of tour buses though as the hotel can get rather noisy.

We truly appreciate your kind words about both our hotel services and location. It is nice to see that you enjoyed your time at our restaurant and made use of the outdoor deck over-looking the ocean as well. We are in a very central location making it convenient for our guests to experience the Outer Banks. We hope you will return back and stay with us again next time.

The Ramada Plaza has a great location on the beach and represents a solid value. The carpet, fabrics, mattress had clearly been updated and the room was generally clean. However, the bathroom was substandard with fixtures that seemed old and functioned poorly. The room safe did not work. The exterior windows were so dirty that the view of the beach/ocean was entirely obscured (this may have been partly due to recent wind and ocean spray). The indoor pool was very small, the water cloudy, and the pool area unattractive (generally not worth using). The bar had short hours (in late April) so that no beverages were available until 5:00 PM on the outside decks. The restaurant food was substandard and overpriced for the entrees. The reception and housekeeping staff were generally friendly and helpful.

Thank you for staying with us recently and also for your comments. The unpredictable weather and recent rain has made it difficult to address the exterior windows as quickly as we would like to but rest assured they are monitored often. We thank you for staying with us and do appreciate the feedback.

But when Groupon offered a deal to stay at this Ramada in OBX, $159 for two nights in a king bed overlooking the ocean, including breakfast, I bit as a gift to my boyfriend. We experienced the deal on off days (a Sunday and Monday night) the week before Easter 2014. And we loved it. This truly oceanside hotel was built in 1988 and has undergone renovations since then. Whoever owns Ramada clearly cares about this place, and its employees, who, to a person, from front desk clerks to waiters to maids, were extremely friendly and helpful. This is not to mention that the room was large and clean, the bathroom, large and clean, and the king bed very comfy (even my bf said so). And the view of the Atlantic from our balconey? Awesome and unobstructed. Check this place out for all that plus the amazing somewhat old-fashioned textile designs of the carpeting, the walls filled with beautiful photographs of OBX by Ray Matthews, and the lovely way the hotel layout easily leads/takes you where you want to go, be it the decent restaurant (ok for dinner, awesome for breakfast), the large pool (with energetic spa), and multi-tiered decking at oceanside for lounging, sunning, reading, a little drink before dinner, whatever ! Very easy access to the beach, a somewhat typical OBX beach for that area, somewhat steep, with curious currents one must be aware of while swimming. But, hey, that's the Outer Banks. We also have local restaurants to recommend: The Red Drum, very close to the Ramada, and the newly opened Striped Bass, on Manteo, not that far away.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor, 4th or 5th, ocean side.
