“something to think about”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We have stayed at this hotel every year in the past 3 years and had a wonderful time. But, this year I was disappointed with our stay. We began by trying to place some items in the safe and found instead a full size bar of soap that the previous occupants left and no one from the staff ever found. Then we discovered several cob webs and spiders on the very high ceiling. I informed the front desk and asked them to have the housekeeper attend to this on their next cleaning but no one ever did. My husband used our pool noodle to take care of this. Housekeeping came to our room at 3:15pm one afternoon and when we asked them to return in 20 minutes, the lady told us she got off at 4pm and she would be back in 10 minutes. How rude! Why is that my problem? It seemed that when I informed the front desk of the soap found in the safe and the spiders they said someone would take care of it but no one ever did nor did anyone follow up. We never saw a housekeeping manager or supervisor checking behind the staff. The tile grout in the bathroom is dirty, we had hair in our tub after every cleaning from housekeeping and the towel bar has been replaced incorrectly, so every time you use it, it swirls around causing the towels to fall. I believe for paying almost $300 a night that these are not issues we ought to have dealt with. It seems in general that the hotel needs better upkeep and deeper cleaning, it is a shame because it is not very old.

It was our first time visiting the Outer Banks, so my husband chose an oceanfront Hotel in KDH (we will call it, the place that shall not be named). The place was run down, the sheets didn't feel clean, and I wore my flip flops in the shower. Needless to say, I didn't get any sleep and the advertised breakfast was just a bunch of sugar with a side of carbs.

Enter, Hampton Inn and Suites in Corolla. It was an oasis with it's signature clean, freshly washed linen scents, friendly/welcoming staff, and really clean beds. We paid the same amount per night as we did for the place that shall not be named. We scored.

The only room available was a king with a sofa bed, but it worked since we have 3 small children. Our room had a microwave and refrigerator (always a plus when traveling with little ones) and the most important part: a clean duvet and crisp, white sheets. There was even a little post it note that said the duvets were washed. And, there were no unnecessary (and disgusting) throw pillows or shams with questionable sanitation. There were no stains on the carpets as one would expect, and bathrooms were very clean (take from a person who packs anti-bacterial wipes and lysol spray on vacations).

There are three outdoor pools to choose from (small lazy river, kiddie, and regular pool), and there are just a few steps from the pool area to the beach. Umbrella, chair, and boogie board rentals are right on the beach and are affordable and more convenient than lugging around your own.

The breakfast spread was perfect for our picky family, they had high protein, low fat options as well as oatmeal, waffles, fresh fruits, and pastries. The attendants kept it well stocked and clean.

We had to drive 8 miles to get lunch and dinner by Corolla Village, but it was fine since we were already in the area to see the Lighthouse and Spanish Mustangs on the beach. There is a diner next to the hotel, but we didn't try it. A Food Lion is nearby, as well.

Overall, our first experience at the OBX was made even better by staying here! Hampton Inn and Suites has not disappointed us, yet (we've made three cross-country trips and have stayed in quite a few).

We really enjoyed our stay at OBX, NC. This hotel is located right on the beach and has a pool and a small lazy river pool. The complimentary breakfast made our life easy each morning before we started our day. The hotel is clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and very helpful.

THis is the 2nd time we've stayed here. Unfortunately, as its a beach place the carpets are a bit run down and should be replaced by flooring. Another con- housekeeping very light, doesnt even clean the surfaces or sink areas. The pros- right on beach, pools very warm and not deep for little kids, rentals on beach can be charged to your room, small diner next door that is convenient but closes early and has less than average food.
Odd experience- got woken up by a fire alarm at 4 am that was a false alarm and no explanations the next day or apology.
As our family as grown we have grown out of this place , doubt will come back but was nice when our kids were small.

Room Tip: have to be at 2nd floor to see water, need to be on 3rd floor to see beach, try not to be near eleva...

This is our third stay, we really love staying here. Room was clean and comfortable.
The pool and beach areas were awesome. Nice kitty roaming property. The breakfast was very good. The staff at the front desk was great, nice having a little store there. I was surprised the ice machine always had ice, with people filling beach coolers.
They only room issue was the ice bucket smelled like sour milk.

Room Tip: Ocean view is best. This last stay we could only get a pool/ocean view which was ok.

Perfect place to stay for a single family if you are not renting. The hotel is right on the beach, which was in excellent condition. The hotel was also close enough to the center of Corolla that you could eat, shop and go to the food store within 10 minutes of where you stayed. The hotel was extremely clean and the staff was very accommodating.

We found the hotel staff to be extremely efficient, friendly and accommodating. My friend left her IPad in the dining area and a staff member turned it in to the front desk. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
