“Location of Hotel is Nice...Bird in Lobby not so much”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

My family and I traveled to this beach hotel the weekend of July 5, 2013 and had a nice time at the beach. Just what we were looking for. Kids had a great time going between the indoor pool and beach. The room was ok. They say that the just completed a renovation however I still noticed small things like a broken dresser drawer & rusty / chipped bathroom door. All in all it was a nice room but the bird in the lobby was not so nice.

Their resident cockatoo named Sabrina is in an open / unmanned cage in their main lobby. They have a sign to 'Handle Sabrina At Your Own Risk' but their staff did not warn me that she bites. I put my arm out to what appeared to be a friendly bird and was then bitten! Not just a bite but she removed a mole from my arm and was bleeding quite bad.

After checking in I gathered my thoughts and called the front desk to inquire about the bird and the agent on the other end informed me that this bird bites approx 8 guests a day! I questioned why they have the bird in the lobby if they know it bites people and they say it is the owners decision. To me this is a lack of concern for their guests well being.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the beach

We are truly sorry to hear that Sabrina wasn’t polite to you when you picked her up from her cage recently. While we have signage stating that handling her is at your own risk, we are disappointed that you were bitten. We will certainly pay more attention and monitor her more. Thank you for staying with us and we do hope you had an enjoyable time while in the Outer Banks area.

We stayed 3 nights with our 3 grandsons and had a great time. Beds were comfortable, room clean, lots of pillows to choose from. Beach was clean and uncrowded when we were there. Pool was only crowded twice and we just waited until supper time or after 8 for the guys to have the pool to themselves. Having the fridge(only the ice cream was a bit soft) and microwave really helped with breakfast and snacks. Plenty of room once we rearrange a bit to fit the roll away in.
Would stay there again.
