“Great location.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Location was great. Free breakfast included pancakes, waffles, and sausage gravy! It wasn't homemade but did the trick. The pool was small but the kids still loved it. There's plenty of sitting areas around the pool and you can hear the waves from there. The rooms were clean and comfy. Nothing fancy. Perfect for beach lovers. The beach area was actually very busy for the outer banks.

Room Tip: First floor oceanfront has a view of dunes and the pool, you have to go higher to see the ocean. Th...

Our room was well cleaned, but just an average hotel room. Right on the beach at KDH and directly across from the Wright Bros, Monument, so the location is very central. The outside pool was clean and had plentiful seating with complimentary towels. The hot breakfast was larger than average for the Choice Hotel chain with waffles, pancakes, eggs, bacon, cereals, pastries, etc. and was kept spotless by the attendant.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

No complaints here. The hotel is all non-smoking and our room and bathroom were cleaned sufficiently each day. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows weren't... brought my own and all was well. There was free breakfast; decent enough. My wife and I ate free breakfast- waffles, oatmeal, fruit, and yogurt. Coffee sucked. Juuuust barely drinkable. Flat screen tv, fridge, right on the beach, clean and comfortable. I've paid the same amount to stay in another beach town motel that was the same price, even in off season, that wasn't nearly as clean and comfortable as this. Of course realize, this is a Quality Inn. Yes, the room may have carpet that could be replaced, out-dated decor, etc., but if the room is clean with no weird odor then that's enough to make me happy... Shell out another $100 or more for a Marriot/whathaveyou if decor is very important to you.

This hotel is a great location with helpful staff and a decent breakfast, but it is extremely dated. The paint/carpet/décor is showing its age. The air conditioning unit in your room was so loud that every time it cycled on it woke us up. Also the room smelled musty, most likely due to the older carpet in the room, although it was cleaned every day to our satisfaction. If you are looking just for a place to sleep, that you may get if your air conditioner is not loud, but don't expect much else and you won't be disappointed.

Not impressed with this hotel at all; room was less than acceptable; needed cleaning & updating....commode was falling away from the wall; carpet was dirty. I would seek other accommodations when returning. Very noisy, but good beach access. Look at other spots before settling on this one!! Staff was good, breakfast was good!.

Stayed here July 14-17.

Staff - awesome, always seemed to want to help, whether it was local dining, towels, etc.

Lodging - was okay, the room did smell sort of musty, but coastal musty. Perhaps a dehumidifier, bit after airing the room out, we were fine. The room was clean but old, so made for a comfortable stay. The tub had a patched crack and some mold but was usable. Overall a comfortable stay close to First Flight (me) and beach (kids).

Food or breakfast, free and typical fare. I did find the coffee odd tasting, not sure, possibly the coffee machine.

Overall I would probably stay here again.

Room Tip: For a good view of First Flight Pylon and ocean pick a room on the 3rd floor and on the 301-309+ ran...
