“Great Hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here two nights total over a weekend. The room, service & staff was great! The continental breakfast left a lot to be desired compaired w/ other hotels I've stayed in. If they modernized/expanded their breakfast offering this would have been a much better value. Everything else was great!

It was our first visit to OBX in years and we went to Taste of the Beach 2013. Enjoyed staying here in newly renovated rooms on the 5th floor with beautiful ocean views. Slept with the heat off and the window open at night just to hear the waves. Great place to stay off season since they have an indoor pool. Very convenient to good local restaurants.

Room Tip: The higher the better for views from the room; ask for low numbers like 403, 503 to get away from el...

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Nags Head Inn. We are glad that you enjoyed staying in one of our newly renovated rooms and that awesome view of the Atlantic. There is nothing better than eating a good meal – I am sure you had plenty of great food at the Taste of the Beach – then relaxing in an oceanfront room, listening to the sounds of the ocean waves.
Thank you for choosing the Nags Head Inn. We hope that you will come back soon.

I was out of work with a bumm knee, and my husband decided I needed to recuperate in OBX. We got a room at Nags Head Inn, OCEAN FRONT. It was wonderful. There are not many people at the beach in February. The room was very nice, the staff are friendly and very helpful. we got to watch the fishermen on the beach,and found lots of shells. I loved it.

Thank you for your review of your recent stay with us at the Nags Head Inn. Visiting the beautiful Outer Banks during the winter is a great way to get away from it all. It is quiet and peaceful and the perfect place to relax.
Thank you for choosing the Nags Head Inn for your “recuperation getaway”. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again.

PS I hope your knee is feeling better.

We are here right now, celebrating our anniversary in the honeymoon suite. The rooms are newly renovated and everything is clean and new. The jacuzzi tub is awesome. This is the best suite we've ever stayed in on the Outer Banks. Love it!

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us at the Nags Head Inn. We are glad that you chose to stay in our honeymoon suite for your anniversary celebration – it is a very special room. Being located on the top floor oceanfront, the view from the suite is wonderful and, relaxing in your own private Jacuzzi while enjoying that view, is quite a treat.
We are glad that you liked our renovations. We have 2 floors completed and the other 2 will be done shortly.
Thank you for choosing the Nags Head Inn. We hope to have you stay with us again.

My family of 4 visited Nags Head last Easter weekend, just for a day or two at the beach. We spent one night at Nags Head Inn. If I were planning on staying longer.. I would have rented a house, but since it was just one night, it was perfect. The lobby is very cute, the rooms are very clean. Everything seems up-to-date. The rates were outstanding! Of course it was April and we got a room that faced the street, but regardless, a good value!

Room Tip: If you don't mind a view of the street... you can save some $$!

Thank you for your review of your stay with us at the Nags Head Inn last Spring. As you discovered, our guests can save some money by staying in one of our streetside rooms and can always enjoy the great ocean view from our 2nd floor indoor pool or the attached sundeck.
We are glad that you enjoyed your visit and hope that you will return again this year to see the renovations that we have done over the winter.

It was the third weekend in September and the weather was great. The Nags Head Inn was the crowning touch to a fabulous weekend. The room was very clean and up to date. The staff was friendly and were glad to answer all our questions. The beach was very accessible. The continental breakfast was good, especially the sweet potato biscuits. I'd stay there again and have recommended it to others.
