“short break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

Days inn, 75 feet from the Beach. an older motel, with dated rooms, but very clean. nice, close parking. Close to all attractions and good eating places. staff, helpful and willing to help if you are new to area. Beds were comfy, but bathroom was small, but who cares everything worked. If you are looking for upscale, this is not your place, but if if want a clean, warm, and friendly place for a few nights, its fine. Breakfast buffet in am was well stocked and tasty. Rates were some of the best. Tom

I usually travel to warm places during the winter day's, but this winter i found myself in North Virginia, (North Carolina) to Kill Devil Hills. I found the best rate and deal at Days Inn. I rented a ocean front room which included breakfast for 4 day's, @49.00 per nite. Although the town was almost that of a ghost town, I found so much pleasure in being paid so much attention to! the weather was 77* the beach was never ending, as the Ocean was being entertained by dolphins and whales, finding treasures on the beach was my favorite pass time. The folks at the Inn were like family, I found myself wanting to stay just a bit longer!

Room Tip: You could choose from a room with or without a full kitchen.

Well we're very happy you happened to wander to our wonderland instead of heading somewhere "normally" warm during this time of year. We have been very lucky to experience a lot of warmer than normal temperatures this year, so a lot of guests have been able to really enjoy wandering around the beach in 60+ weather.

We appreciate your very kind words concerning our staff and our property and am very much happy you felt like part of our family. We hope that you'll come back and visit again and maybe bring some more warm weather to the Outer Banks with you! Please feel free to contact us for reservations if you should be able to return.....

Thank you--Tonia

Can't say enough about the front desk service, a nice young man who checked us in and patiently answered all our questions with a sincere enthusiasm for OBX and our visit. GREAT buffet breakfast got us going in the morning, room was older but quiet and safe, with WI-FI that made keeping up with business easy. Beach was right outside the door! Can't believe we lucked into this value. Owners have a great reputation in OBX, we understand, by talking with other local folks. Would highly recommend for a visit, we'll use them in the future!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean, worth it just to hear the waves while falling asleep. Don't pas...

Right on the beach with the ocean at our front door. It was a beatiful place to spend the night. We got a two room suite with a sitting area and kichenette. Was perfect when travelling with an adult child.

Thank you so much for writing a review of your stay with us at the Mariner. I'm pleased that you had an enjoyable stay with us....we get many returning guests who do love our 2 bedroom suites--they are one of my favorite room types as well. It's great to be able to travel with someone and be together but separate with doors that shut off from each bedroom and the living room/kitchen area. We hope to see you again on the Outer Banks--please feel free to contact us and we would be happy to help make reservations for your next stay!

We stayed one night in early Dec. I had read review on Trip Adviser and made an online reservation. Cleanliness was an A-. During my extensive bug check I did discover a empty water under the bed and some dirt behind the headboard. Otherwise very clean.
We were there for business and this was fine for one overnight. For an ocean vacation though this room would be sort of small even for 2.

Room Tip: Make sure you know which building you want as one is across the street and far back from the street...

Thank you for staying with us while traveling to the Outer Banks. I will make sure that I share your review with our staff. You are correct--the Mariner II building is located across the street from the ocean...this is why it is best to always follow up by calling the hotel if you make a reservation by internet to make sure the room type you booked is actually the one you wanted so we appreciate your pointing that out in the Room Tip section.

We hope that if you are able to visit the Outer Banks again you'll give us another try and we'll try to make your stay even better the next time!
Thank you--Tonia

We came in at 2 am, having been turned away from Holiday Inn Express due to computer problems. This hotels computer was also down but the clerk had us registered and in our bed in no time. The next morning we enjoyed a fabulous free breakfast which was much more than most hotels provide. Loved it and would definately recommend.

One property's loss was our gain and I'm pleased that our front desk was able to work around the computer being down to get you checked into the hotel quickly (as I'm sure you were tired from traveling). We appreciate your taking the time to write a review of our property and would love to host your next stay!

We stayed at the Days Inn in late November on a weeknight. There was almost nobody there. Check in was fast and friendly and the prices were fastastic. Breakfast was included. The room was as close to the ocean as possible. The breaking waves kept me awake for a while which was not a problem. The room was clean and close to dining. We will be back if we are in the area again.

We're glad you were able to take advantage of our great lower rates in the winter. I'm very pleased you found everything clean & comfortable and that our staff was accommodating. We are hoping that everyone is enjoying our new, free hot breakfast of sausage, eggs, waffles, cereals, pastries, etc. Please feel free to contact us direct the next time you are able to visit the Outer Banks--we'd be happy to help reserve your next stay!
