“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

First time taking our lab with us for a getaway weekend. The front desk person was very friendly and helpful and yes, renovations are ongoing. We were on the first floor, which I found out is the pet floor and I guess there is no limit to the number of dogs in a room since the room beside ours had 3 dogs in it. They were a bit noisy at times but at least settled down after 11:30pm. Our room had been partially renovated (bathroom re-tiled and painted, but the room itself had not. Our room was clean and the housekeeping staff were good. The best part was the fact that we were right on the beach and you just walked up a couple of flights of steps to the wooden walkway to the beach. However, I think it would be a hard walk for someone who had bad knees and there is no other access to the beach.
I would stay there again when all renovations are complete. And if you want good food, go to Mako Mikes. Great crab legs!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay on the first floor if you don't like dogs.

Thanks for staying with us and more importantly taking the time to tell us about your experience. We’re glad that you brought your Labrador with you and assume he/she loved the ocean and beach time. Pre-registration of pets is required and we prefer to limit 1 pet per room. As in this case, sometimes a guest does not disclose how many pets they are bringing and we do apologize for their noise during your stay. As you mention above, we are upgrading and renovating areas of the hotel and do hope that you will return again.

We stayed twice, once in June and once at the end of August. It was like day and night. Our stay in June was great. The place was quiet and clean. When we stayed in August, it was a mess. It looked like the room had not been cleaned before we arrived. Even the halls looked dirty. Both times we had oceanfront rooms with good views. The beach is close and easy to access. I'll still stay somewhere else next time because the hotel was dirty enough on our last trip not to overlook.

We value your business and appreciate that you stayed with us on two separate occasions. Your feedback is crucial to our success and we are disappointed to hear that your second visit was less than perfect. Although your last stay was nearly 6 months ago we’ll be sure to talk with our staff to ensure room readiness. We are currently undergoing some upgrades and renovations so should you want to visit again, I’m sure you’ll enjoy your time with us.

I am not one to really say negative things and always try to see the "cup as half full", but this hotel could make anyone a pessimist. We were stuck as this was one of the only hotels on the island that accepted pets (we have a Chihuahua), and I had trained for the Outerbanks Marathon for months... First, upon arrival around 2am, the front desk clerk EMERGED eventually from the back room looking apparently stoned or high on some substance. After attempting to disregard this, we moved on to our 1st floor room. It was late and we were tired after an 8hour drive, so sleep was paramount. Upon further inspection after having to move some furniture around to accomodate our family, we were horified to find all types of filth. This motel does serve a breakfast, which is probably best for the welfare of the patrons. On checkout day, I couldn't help but notice a stong of alcohol coming off several houseman and other workers in the hallway. I do not like to speak i such negative terms, but stay away. The "dune view" really is a decripit sidewalk that is littered with cigarette butts and other trash. I really do not have any suggestions to management except to close this hotel, effective immediately, hire new staff, remodel, clean up, and get rid of the bugs. Again, we would not have stayed if other options were available. I would not stay here even if it was free.

Room Tip: stay at another place, seriously

We stayed at the Ramada for 4 nights. The staff are unbeatable, from the bar tender named Bill, Chad at the front desk, and I believe her name was Tammy, our waitress at the restaraunt, Peppercorn's. The hotel is in good shape, they are doing a bit of renovation, and it is in a state of complete cleanliness. I hope to be able to afford another trip to the outter banks in March, we will not be staying anywhere else other than the Ramada. Thank you to the staff of this hotel, we enjoyed your company as much as we enjoyed the scenary and activities we were able to take part in. Thanks Again!!

Room Tip: If you want ocean view, 4th floor or higher.

This is a very nice hotel located right on the ocean. There's a very good restaurant & lounge right on the premises, plus the indoor swimming pool is awesome. The hotel's location is right in the center of everything. I have stayed here many times and enjoy every visit. The staff is always welcoming and helpful. If you need a hotel for an Outer Banks vacation, this is the one!

Room Tip: You can take the ocean side or the soundside. Personally, I don't need to spend extra money loo...
