We have been staying at Shutters for several years now every chance we get. We live about an hour away and spend a few days now and then at the beach whenever we can. Shutters is constantly upgrading. Every visit is nicer than before. The kids love the indoor and outdoor choice of pools as well as being just over... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2016

We started staying at Shutters on the Banks 13 years ago, and we return every year! When you stay at Shutters, expect to be treated like family because it is family owned and operated. It is always clean, the staff is super friendly and quick to accommodate, and the main part of the hotel has been completely renovated. From an... More

We were very pleased with our stay at Shutters on the Banks. We like a hotel that is not a "tower" that you can pull up to and be close to your room. The part of the hotel we stayed in was newly updated and was close to the hotel office. We slept very well in the queen beds. We... More

We needed a room for Friday night of the holiday weekend and chose this place. I would like to state this was the best "blind" reservation I have made in awhile. I did not know anything about the place but I was very satisfied with our stay. The ladies at the front desk helped me find places to eat for... More

We travel often to the Outer Banks, but had not stayed at Shutters. We really enjoyed our weekend. We upgraded to the ocean view room and it was totally worth it!! We got to enjoy a beautiful sunrise right from our balcony, a beautiful rainbow over the ocean in the afternoon, and loved relaxing with drinks in the chairs in... More

Stayed at the hotel for two nights. Our room was right off the pool with easy access to the beach. The room was clean. Breakfast was great and the area to sit outside was very nice with a lot of seating.

Great beach access at the hotel. 2 pools ( indoor and outdoor) plus an indoor hot tub near the indoor pool. Ocean, pool or natural dune views ( depending on which room style you book). Room was very clean but a little dated. Comfortable beds but bathroom is very small and located immediately as you enter the room. Many rooms... More

First time we have stayed with SHUTTERS on a trip to the OBX. Overall we are pleased with the newly renovated section, we were on the third floor end unit. Quiet was a plus, and the elevator was very close to the room. Balcony was comfortable and more roomy than I anticipated, you can see the ocean but not the... More

The newly remodeled rooms are very nice. Bathroom was clean and modern. Pool was great for little kids as it is about 4 ft deep at the deepest. Very nice grounds and landscaping, with just a short walk over the dunes for beach access. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Will stay here again.
