Quality Inn Carolina Oceanfront

Reviewed September 16, 2013

Very clean hotels. Right next to the beach..but don't be fooled by the name. Most rooms are NOT Ocean Front. But it is right beside the beach. Paid cash for our room because our bank put a hold on our card because of fraud, but I swear we were charged an extra $20..but I can't accuse someone of stealing. So if you pay in cash, make sure you triple count it!! Overall great hotel and location!

This is your typical 3 star hotel. Room was decent, with plenty of space. Bed was comfortable. The older A/C unit was very loud but kept the room cool. Not a lot of bells and whistles but not worthy of the bad reviews either. The hotel is a bit older and more like a motel with the front door of your hotel room leading directly outside instead of in a hallway. The pool.was ok but not the most inviting. I say that because the day I wanted to get in, it was full of sand from the beachgoers. The price was great. The hotel offered a continental breakfast that was very not very appealing with only instant oatmeal, cereal and a few pastries, however for a quick meal, it would be acceptable. This was my first trip to the OBX and the hotel's location was excellent. A short drive south to Nags Head and Hattaras and north to Duck and Corolla. The hotel's location is walking distance to the beach and a short car ride to many eating and shopping spots. If you decide to stay at this hotel, please keep an open mind that it is not a Ritz Carlton, but a Quality Inn. I do suggest asking for a room with a ocean view on the 2nd or 3rd floor. Ocean view on the 1st floor faces a fence. Other rooms face a parking lot and don't have a private balcony.

You can't beat the location being right on the beach with easy access. The rooms are not decrepit but not really updated either and are reasonably clean. The breakfast is good considering the price of the room. One pet peeve is that they allow smokers to smoke outside the rooms on the balcony which is irritating. Very comfortable beds.

The location was great, desk staff nice, we even were able to check in a couple hours early. But when we got in the room it was damp smelling. The carpet was very worn and stained. I wore my flip flops in the room. The beds were good, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was tiny. Breakfast was good. The wi-fi was useless. I couldn't log on at all. Even in the "business center" we couldn't stay connected. This was quality with a lowercase " q".

Not impressed first off we reserved a beach side room then when we got there they said that we could have a road side room. We used points to get the room the guy at quality inn that made the reservation gave use the beach side room and never said that there would be an issue reserving with points, then we could not check in till 4 pm and when we got to the room they were still cleaning it, there were bugs in the floor by the base board it was room 139. And the a/c sounded like a plane taking off the air would not get cooled so it keep running lets just say I did not sleep good that night well for a 130 dollars a night I should have slept in my car or on the beach.

Room Tip: Dont stay here

The front desk staff were very nice and the room was clean. The other pluses are that it is right on the beach and is centrally located to most restaurants and attractions in OBX. Also, there is a pool, and a microwave, coffee maker and refrigerator in the room. The price was a little high but I can't complain because it was a last minute booking and on a holiday weekend. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
