“Great escape for a winter beach experience!”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

Awesome service (Tyler and Bob), very accommodating room, great view of the ocean and falling asleep to the sound of the breakers, and peaceful walks on the deserted winter beach.

My wife and I like quiet escapes from our busy lives. About 1 1/2 hours from our house is our new get away, the quiet end of OBX (The North end) and the Hampton Inn And Suites Outerbanks Corolla.

Corolla is a short drive North with many small shops; call ahead because their off-season hours are variable.

Room Tip: South side, 'partial view,' provide a great view of the ocean, sunrise, and sunset.

Visited the Hampton Inn Corolla the weekend after Thanksgiving 2011. Just needed a place to stay to meet my wedding planner and caterer, whom are in Duck. The hotel is very large, and on the oceanside. The beach behind the hotel is very lovely, and they also have an indoor pool, and what looked like 2 outdoor pools (they were closed for the season). The Hampton is between Duck and Corolla, not many places you can walk to, but restaurants, shops and bars are fairly close by car. The Hampton Inn also offers a free continental breakfast in the morning and, while we were there anyway, they offered fresh cookies, similar to a Double Tree hotel.
We had 4 people, including myself, staying in one room, and I had chose to book a room without any kind of ocean view to cut down on price. Our room was on the 3rd floor, had a balcony which overlooked the parking lot, BUT, from our balcony we witnessed one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen!
The room had a wet bar with a small refrigerator and a microwave. We had 2 queen size beds, a pull out sofa, a desk/table area, and they offer FREE WIFI!! Total BONUS!
With my AAA discount the room ran about $110 w/o tax, but I looked into blocking rooms there for my wedding guests in September, and the current room rate was $250 per night, which was disappointing since it will not be peak season.
All in all, great room, had just what we needed at a price that was reasonable, but if you are planning to stay for more than a couple nights I would recommend renting a vacation home/condo.

Room Tip: The beach is right behind the resort, so I don't see the need to pay the additional money to hav...

We were looking for a place to get away and celebrate our anniversary. The inn was modern, clean, and well maintained. There is an indoor pool and hot tub in addition to the outdoor ones, so we could enjoy those even though it was winter. The beach access is easy, right from the hotel. The hotel is secluded, set between Duck and Corolla. We rented a studio suite but for two of us, the extra room was unnecessary, and the kitchenette added little to no value- it's a mini-fridge, wet bar sink, and tiny microwave. Having stayed at other Hampton Inns with actual kitchenettes, we were disappointed. Save the money and get a regular room.

Hampton Inns have never disappointed my wife and I and the one in Corolla is no exception. We stayed there for two nights to get a head start and extend on our family of 12's seven day vacation in Corolla Light. Great lobby, friendly and attentive staff, clean rooms, great location (this part of the OBX is NOT very commercial) if that is what you want. Ocean City, MD, Myrtle Beach and Virginia Beach it is NOT. We love it up in Corolla.

Only criticism would be the breakfast buffet is good, but not great when compared to a Marriott Courtyard or a Holiday Inn Express.

We will be back.

Great hotel with helpful staff.
Had a third floor room with balcony overlooking the ocean. Watched a superb sunrise and dolphins swimming by! Hotel was very quiet, it was 27and 28 December, nice atmosphere.
Fabulous situation right on the shore, slept with the balcony door open all night listening to the ocean crashing on the beach. Not the cheapest Hampton Inn but worth the extra for the location.

Lovely alternative to the pricier options on north end of the OBX. Clean, comfortable, quiet, and right on the beach. We spring for the oceanfront rooms and it's totally worth it. They're large with great views and a microwave/fridge. We've only been here off-season, but every time we've stayed, the staff is friendly and professional. Very nice breakfast every morning in a open, sunny lobby. Pine Island Diner is on site, but in the 1/2 dozen times we've stayed here, it's not been open. Short driving distance to other dining options.

Room Tip: Oceanview rooms are worth the extra price.

On a last minute whim, my husband, kids and I decided to drive to Corolla for New Year's weekend. We were able to get a 2 queen suite with a partial ocean view at the Hampton Inn & Suites. I almost always try for an ocean view but since it was last minute I figured I'd suffer. The room was on the side of the building but still had a good view from the balcony (see pictures). We were able to sit out on the gorgeous New Year's Eve afternoon and watch the dolphins play. The hotel still has a good deal of separation from it's neighbors on either side so there is a large expanse of beach in front of the hotel. The room was large, clean and possibly still fairly new or at least very well maintained. I have stayed at a variety of hotels in Virginia BEach on the ocean and they are all a mess so this was quite a treat.

The brunette lady at the desk has the best personality. I wish I remembered her name but she had the biggest and brightest smile and was just very friendly to every customer.

Breakfast was included and not bad. Eggs, sausage, make your own waffles, pastries, cereal, fruit, the usual.

The hotel has an indoor pool and hot tub which I didn't realize so didn't bring our suits. There are also two large outdoor pools for warmer weather.

It is in a nice location near Corolla shopping and dining but secluded enough to really feel like you are getting away.

We loved it and can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Ocean view if you can get it but the partial ocean isn't bad.
