“Pricey but as expected for OBX in August”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

My family spent one night in this hotel before our week long rental began and we were please with the stay. The staff was very friendly, the hotel was clean and it was in a good location. I would have chosen a different hotel if I were planning to spend more time there but for our purposes it was perfect. The breakfast was typical but included so that was nice however it was very crowded. We didn't utilize the pool but it was located in the parking lot so was lacking the "vacation" feel. It was an expensive stay but as I said, we expected that. We would stay here again for a short visit.

For the price we expected a little more. Not the quality of the other HIE's we have visited this trip. The outside looked better than the inside. Needs some TLC. The people were nice. Would not stay here again. But, I guess this what you get in a tourist area even after Labor Day. Not what you expect for the bucks you pay

My wife and I stay here one night a year, following Labor Day. The Hotel is in a great location and is conveniently located. It's an older property, which has never been updated to current standards. But I don't think anybody cares, because when you are on holiday, it's just a place to sleep anyway.

We stopped in to Outer Banks on a road trip this summer. This hotel chain is always a good value. Steps away from the beach with the added bonus of a swimming pool. Its really centrally located and the staff there couldn't have been nicer. The free breakfast really is a money saver, the food was also really consistent at each location.

Spent a 4 day weekend at the Beach. The hotel employees were very helpful & hospitable. The complimentary breakfast was nice (changed daily from sausage to ham to bacon) and we were just a short walking distance to a nice beach.

Upon our arrival around 630 pm on 8/22 we were greeted by a friendly smiling face (wish I had gotten her name but I didn't) She was super helpful and went out of her way to make us feel at home. We ordered a pizza from a local establishment and when it came she offered plates, forks, and napkins - even went to the breakfast nook to get them for us. Offered us warm chocolate chip cookies and had a great sense of humor.!! A++ for the lady at the front desk on 8/22/13 (after 630pm)

The hotel itself was very close to the beach -- just had to walk through the back parking lot and down the beach path, then cross the beach road -- maybe 200 yards if that! Ask for Ocean side room -- your window will look out over the parking lot, but just beyond that is avery nice view of the ocean! Worth every penny we paid for it -- stayed 2 nights and will stay there again I we go back to the area. All the staff from the housekeepers, to the maintenance guy, to the breakfast attendant were super!!! Friendly, polite and all went out of their way to make us feel at home :-)

The location is very convenient in Kitty Hawk -- right down the road from Wright Brothers National monument and Cape Hatteras National forest.

Location, price, amenities all made this trip great, but the lady at the front desk made it over the top!!! Thanks!!!!!

Room Tip: Ocean side overlooks ocean!
