“No Blues at This Motel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2005

The Blue Heron is a great discovery in a sea of choice. We've been "beached" at dumps before and this is a relaxing no-frills motel - clean, friendly, ocean front, quiet, inexpensive. We stayed twice in the late-'90s and were very pleased with our efficiencies. We only needed to buy our food and they provided the rest. Judging from more current reviews, The Blue Heron is very popular!

We have been staying at the Blue Heron practically every year since the early 70's. Clean rooms, great view. Family run by great people. This May will be third time we have stayed at the Blue Heron within the last 12 months. It's our second home.

Stayed December 2004

We stayed at the blue Heron and were pleasantly surprised by the reasonable price. Great indoor swimming pool with adjacent hot tub. In room microwave and fridge a great added bonus. View from 2nd floor good. No elevator but not a problem at all. Nice balcony with seats. Clean. Nice freindly front office. Liked ordering from the Pizza oven who delivered directly to the room.

I discovered the blue heron by accident one christmas. it was lit up so pretty for the holiday and had a vacancy. i try to stay there as often as i can. the views are worth it. and the price is reasonable and the indoor pool is a great selling point for my family. it is the motel i recomend to everyone i know.

I discovered the Blue Heron by accident but was so impressed by it's location, the friendly staff, and the clean quaint rooms that I will continue to go back anytime I get the chance to go to Nags Head. I loved the slower pace and the simple features of the room. It had everything I needed for a quiet, relaxing stay at the beach.

We arrived in Nag's Head in early May 2004. We were leaving our daughter there to life guard on the beach for the summer. After driving 25 hours we happened to land at the Blue Heron. My husband just liked the look of it. We were originally staying for two nights but it was such a lovely, quiet place that we extended our stay for two more nights. We will be returning at the end of the summer and we are booked in at the Blue Heron.

We have been staying at the Blue Heron for years. We believe it is the best place to stay in the whole outer banks. It has everything we want--small, personal, right on the ocean. This is getting increasingly hard to find these days!
