Like another reviewer below, I had to cancel my hotel room (nearly $200 for a one night stay). In my case, the cancellation was necessary due to a medical situation that forced us to suddenly alter our plans, and unfortunately this occurred inside of the 72 hour cancellation policy. I talked to two people at the hotel, the manager actually... More

We stayed on the top floor of the Four Seasons building, which afforded a great view of the ocean. You could even watch the sun rise from bed, through the big sliding glass doors that led out to the balcony. The hotel staff were also very friendly and courteous and even put "Happy Birthday" on the marquee for my wife.... More

I must say when we pulled up to the hotel I was a bit nervous as it looks to need some work, however we were pleasantly surprised. We booked an ocean front room that was pet friendly and the room itself was a basic room with incredible views. The balcony was a plus and the beach area was great, the... More

There's nothing super fancy about the John Yancey, but Paul and I had another solid long weekend there for Memorial Day. Just the two of us in an oceanfront room on the 3rd floor -- lobby staff was friendly, room was clean, A/C kept the room cool and we were on the beach (when the weather cooperated) within a minute...

The staff was wonderful. Check in was very easy. Our room was clean and comfy,if some what dated. Plenty of fresh towels. Super close to the beach. A generous continental breakfast was served in the breakfast room by very friendly and efficient staff.

Awesome location ... The hotel staff was so welcoming and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable but above all else... it was perfect for beach entrance... king room on lower level. Highly recommended.

While the giant family homes seem to be the place to stay in Outer Banks, for those that don't need 16 bedrooms and multiple kitchens, you really can't beat the Yancey. We stayed in the Sea Building and absolutely loved being steps from the beach, waking up to the beautiful sunrise, and star-gazing from the balcony at night. Comfy beds,... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in April. Was very clean and the beds were so comfortable. Loved the pillows!!! Would stay again for sure! Prices were reasonable this time of year. Im a local and know that the difference in price in April is largely different than June for accommodations on the obx. Would highly recommend!
