The hotel was clean, and good size for 2 beds, staff were courteous, the breakfast was just ok but enough for starting the day. The hotel is located near a couple good restaurants. Good internet signal. Overall good stay, would stay here again

This was my boyfriend and I first time at Nags Head and we couldn't have picked a more perfect hotel. The hotel staff was always greeting us whenever we were in the lobby and our room was clean and beautiful. We had a balcony that overlooked the beach and it was really quiet. We never stepped foot in the pool... More

Stayed here during my husband's birthday weekend celebration. Being an IHG Rewards Platinum member, we received a complimentary upgrade to oceanfront room, which we really appreciate! Hats off to the staff! From front desk, breakfast attendants to housekeeping. Everyone's so friendly---Heather at the front desk is a gem! The staff also surprised us with a birthday card and cupcakes upon... More

It's not a luxury hotel, that's for sure. But it's very clean and it's right by the ocean which is really great. It has a small gym and serves breakfast (complimentary continental) from 6.30-9.30. The staff is friendly and it's located at Nags Head, OBX. It also has a small pool which was occupied pretty much the whole time by... More

Location, location, location. We wanted to stay on the beach, very low key hotel on the beach. Not a lot of amenities, I would recommend a beach view room only!!! Staff was friendly. The rooms are on the smaller side but the hotel is close to everything.

We stayed two nights at the hotel, at the end of July 2016. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable. The staff was interactive and made you feel very comfortable and supported.

The hotel has a great location, and the beach access is also really quite nice. The beach never seemed very crowded which was great. Beach chair and umbrella rentals are available ($12/30 dollars for chairs/umbrellas). The hotel itself was recently renovated, so the rooms are clean, fresh, and in great condition. Rooms include Keurig, microwave, and mini fridge as amenities.... More

Very clean, staff was extremely friendly and I would recommend staying here if your visiting Nags Head. Location was great , you are walking distance to restaurants and of course the beach is a 50 yard walk. There is also chair and umbrella rentals at the bottom of the stairs entering the beach which is great too.

This was a clean comfortable inn with good beach access. Good number of free shaded parking spaces, friendly, helpful staff. We planned this last minute and ended up on the leeward facing side but spent such little time in room during day that the view didn't matter.
