“Outstanding service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2004

We had made reservations at another Kill Devil Hills hotel, which turned out to be FILTHY. We drove to the Comfort Inn, where the staff made us feel truly welcome. They went out of their way to help us. The room was very clean and nice, easy access to the beach and pool. The breakfast was more than we expected, with plenty of food--a good assortment. We would definitely stay there again, based solely on the kindness of the front desk staff.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2004

We found this hotel to be not only an above average place to stay, but very convenient. After reading the previous review I was very apprehensive about staying there. We only booked the room a few days before we left so they only had 1st floor rooms. I was thinking that last years hurricane Isabel may have damaged the hotel. I was very surprised when we got there. The room was in great shape. There was no dampness and the facilities where in top notch shape. We stayed there the end of July, beginning of August.

I found the access to the beach to be excellent. We had never gone to the north end of the OBX, mostly near Wilimington. We found these beaches to be much more family friendly. Not hundreds and hundreds on the beach. There was plenty of space. Night time the beaches are practically empty. We found the drive that we were very central for drives to all the lighthouses.

The pool was in a nice area and just the right size for the few that used it. Most went to the beach.

That staff at the Comfort Inn was very helpful with recommendations for several of our meals and we were glad we had asked as they were places we might not have chosen.

I guess if some one is not used to staying at the beach in the summer, they might not know that it can be very humid and if you don't turn the air on in your room it might feel very damp. As for the sand at the beach it was plain old beach sand. Although I was at Wrightsville Beach, NC yesterday and the beach was very shelly, but that could be due to what Hurricane Alex may have kicked up on the beach at the beginning of the week. So perhaps they previous people were there right after a storm.

Also, if you want to stay right on the beach you'll have to pay for it, the prices are the same there as most of the other hotels up & down the beach.

I guess if you want to stay on the beach it is a good or better as any other hotel. We had a great time and everyone was very friendly. Have a great time!!!

P.S. Don't forget to plug you fridge in when you get there if you want it to be cold.

Yuck! We left early and drove off the island to find another place to stay. The entire room was damp. The carpets, the sheets, the smell was like an old wet dog. The bed springs poked us, the toilet wobbled, I could hear the neighbor's conversation clearly through the bathroon wall. The beach was steep with brown, gritty sand. The pool was too small for my kids to swim in. I cannot believe that I paid $160 to stay in such a rundown place.

One of the few handicap accessible hotels in the area that was actually usable for a handicapped individual(not just up to NC codes).
Otherwise, a great place to stay, clean, affordable, nice pool, nice employees.
