“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Stayed 8 nights ending 5/25/14, found the Inn to be one of the best places we have stayed in our 50 years of marriage. Hotel was very clean and the staff is great. Very friendly and efficient. Miss Sherls potato biscuits are delicious. The best views are from the 4th or 5th floors. I cannot find one thing to complain about!!

This is a very nice, attractive hotel, but I just wanted to offer a warning. The website images you see where it looks like all the floors look out over the beach is misleading. I was in a second floor "oceanfront" room, and my view consisted largely of the parking lot and a sand dune. I could just make out the ocean over the dune, but I couldn't see the waves and I couldn't hear the ocean. If you want to actually see the beach, then you should book above the second floor or stay at the Surf Side down the road.

We are sorry that you were not happy with the view from your room during your stay with us. The second floor oceanfront rooms do have a beautiful view of the ocean but not of the beach. The nightly rates for these rooms are lower than the rooms on the upper floors. You can enjoy looking at the ocean from your room or your private balcony and save some money too.
Thank you for staying with us at the Nags Head Inn. We hope to see you again.

We recently stayed at this Inn for two nights. We were pleasantly surprised to find a government discount, and as a result felt that we received good value. The rooms were clean, and service was good. The hotel is located on the ocean and is near Kitty Hawk as well as many restaurants, stores and other things. We enjoyed our stay.

The hotel notified us in advance that their pool would be under construction, but passes to the local YMCA were available. This was a very nice touch - not only letting us know, but providing an alternative. The hotel was clean and comfortable and a great location. We were surprised that our children should have been counted as adults and charged $10/person extra. The manager acknowledged that the website was unclear when we registered online and did not charge us the higher amount. I always feel that if you are traveling with your kids (no matter their age) there should not be an extra charge. They repeatedly offered a roll away bed for our son, which was appreciated. Overall the staff was accommodating and friendly. The linens and bathroom were clean and other than the patio door rattling all night long - we had an enjoyable stay. The "breakfast" was minimal....pre-packaged danish and locally made sweet potato biscuits. I might suggest that putting out some fresh fruit and yogurt would be an inexpensive and effortless addition for folks who might like something a little healthier.

Room Tip: We stayed on the street side because it was cheaper...only complaint was that the patio door was a l...

Don't be put off by the concrete block exterior or the reviews that said dated. What counts is the rooms were clean, smelled nice, mattresses firm, showers good pressure, decor cheerful, people super nice. We came in out of the cold and wet from camping and they let us check in early to get a shower and warm up. So nice! Without asking, extra soap and laundry bags the next day. Great place! We will come back for sure!

Hotel seemed overpriced for what you got. The location on the beach did help, and I did have a room that overlooked the Ocean. Hotel is clean but some parts of the room seem dated. Hotel staff was very helpful.

My wife and I stayed here in October for a little retreat, It was enjoyable watching the waves from our ocean view room. It's a nice hotel, just a little dated, it could use some new carpets, and maybe a few other things. Still a nice place to visit. Great restaurants close by.
