We visited the area shortly after Hurricane Matthew. There was damage in the area. - however, the hotel was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our balcony view of the ocean. The hotel is convenient for area sightseeing and shopping. We found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. Would stay again.

This hotel is very nice- older but new to IHG according to the website. It is rather hard to find (the first time there) but once you get your bearings it was an excellent location.

Located on the beach on Virginia Dare, which runs parallel to Hwy. 158. Upper floors (4 and 5) have good ocean view. Lower floors not so much because there is a massive sand dune between the hotel and the beach. To access the beach it is necessary to climb a sturdy wooden staircase (nice photo op at top) and then...

Room amenities say include oceanfront balcony, hair dryer, microwave, etc. our "balcony" was 6" wide overlooking the street. Beware tho, rooms on floor 2, Oceanside, could only see parking lot. Rooms were immaculate. Breakfast service very good. Front desk poor. Pictures online were difficult to duplicate. Loved Nags Head! We will be back. Just not here.
