The hotel appears to have been very recently renovated. Our room was fairly large and comfortable with a great ocean view! The indoor pool area is a little dated with the pool itself in need of a facelift, but it was still very enjoyable. Breakfast was standard Holiday Inn Express items. The older gentleman who checked us in was very... More

The hotel itself is nice, right on the beach and with it's own beach access and good parking facilities. The breakfast was ok, with both sausages and pancakes as well as milk and juice (though the eggs were powdered). The room was nice, modern and clean. There are several good restaurants nearby. The indoor pool was no joy, and very... More

Great room, very comfy beds, great breakfast, will definitely return! Only issue was the railing on the balcony was directly in front of me when I sat, but that is minor. Handicapped ramp on beach access is nice.

This hotel is right on the beach with ocean view rooms. The rooms are clean, the beds are super comfortable. Continental breakfast included is okay. Coffee machines in room are great! Beach is beautiful but no chairs or umbrellas included, you must bring your own. Also try not to get a room on the 5th floor in the hot weather... More

We went to OBX for a late summer/early fall beach trip and were very pleased with this hotel. It was oceanfront with its own beach access. Beds were super comfortable and had nice linens. Breakfast was great and staff was very pleasant. Would definitely stay at this clean and comfortable location again!

Love, Love this place! Stayed here in 2013 before it was Holiday Inn Express. It has been nicely updated with a free breakfast that can't be beat. Literally steps to the ocean! Right in the middle of the Outer Banks. Very clean, smoke free. Free parking. Mostly couples and families, can't go wrong.

We stayed here in July. We had no problems with the hotel. My biggest concern with a hotel is how clean the rooms are. Our room was clean. Not spotless, but clean. We didn't use the pool, so I don't know how it was. We did eat breakfast a couple of mornings and it was ok. The staff was very... More

It is on the beach but many inside concerns. TV remote wouldn't work, safe in closet wouldn't work, bathroom products we not restocked, pool is very small and was not clean, breakfast area not large enough, handicap parking on opposite side of electric door, outside shower area dirty with garbage.
