My wife, daughter and myself, along with our two darling Chihuahua girls, just spent four incredibly relaxing days, March 10th through March 13th, at the beachside Ramada Inn at Kill Devil Hills on the Outer Banks of North. My wife had searched for available “pet friendly” lodgings and she really found a winner at the Ramada.
Their staff greeted us warmly on our arrival and everyone at the hotel bent over backwards making sure we had a memorable experience. We had a no-smoking room on the first floor and to my surprise it really was a smoke free place (as an ex-smoker myself, I can tell if anyone had smoked in the room, but it was completely taint free).
Although the hotel was going through an extensive renovation during our stay, at no time did this activity intrude on our enjoyment of the indoor heated pool or the hot tub, which was a major factor in our selection of the Ramada, aside from their pet policy. We enjoyed the pools and hot tub every day, along with many other fellow guests. The weather vacillated between cool and chilly, but we were warm and comfortable inside the hotel. In addition to the pools, they had a nice exercise facility and an in-hotel restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Outer Banks during the off-season is a charming place to visit. There are still many things to do and see along the coast and the restaurant scene was amazing. I had the best steak I’ve ever eaten during my visit and I am looking forward to my next visit. There were no crowds and the prices were very reasonable everywhere we went, from Manteo up to Corolla.
Access to the beach was easy from the hotel and the beach was very relaxing, although the water was rough, eight to ten foot breakers rolling ashore in sets of seven to ten waves each. Tuesday was heavy rain along the coast, but the temperature was in the high 50’s to low 60’s and wasn’t bad at all.
Overall, I’d say you couldn’t find a much better place to stay on the Outer Banks than the Ramada Inn on South Virginia Dare Trail and if you want to really relax, you should consider OBX during the off-season. You’ll have a ball!

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor are excellent if you bring your dogs along.

The view is fantastic! The waitress at breakfast was not friendly. She was short with everyone, like she didnt want us there. The food was very good. There was noone at the check in desk and a paper sign that said to come back after 8 pm.

The hotel is large and at the end phase of a lobby remodel. The biting parrot in the lobby was not a problem. I think they just don't want you trying to touch her. I chatted with the bird and thought she added charm . This is an animal loving and pet friendly establishment. If this bothers you, stay away.The location is nice and easily found. The bed was comfortable. The air conditioner coming on and off was a little disturbing. TV had been updated. The indoor heated pool with a view of the ocean was a nice touch especially for a winter stay.I would have no problem recommending this hotel. It's not the Ritz. If you want a Ritz, don't come here.

Room Tip: No pet noise on first floor.
