Days Inn Kill Devil Hills Oceanfront - Wilbur
Ranked #4 of 18 Hotels in Kill Devil Hills
Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Traveling for business and decided to slip over to the Outer Banks and spend a cold January night. With no planning in advance we checked trip advisor and saw this place. It was our good fortune. A fire in the lobby fireplace, complimentary warm cider and cookies, and a very friendly staff made it great. It oddly had the feel of a ski lodge on the beach. The place appears older. It is well maintained and clean. It has been suitably updated. Only negative was noise from upstairs. Good internet service. Great location on the beach near the Wright Bros park. They were aware it was January and properly reflected that in the rates. I would go back this weekend and sit by the fire if I could.

We're very happy that you decided to take a little side trip to the Outer Banks and that you chose us for your stay. I'm very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and the fire is still going! We made a conscious effort to keep our lobby in the Olde Nags Head style, so the flooring is original as well as most of the other wood in the lobby---it's something completely different from other properties on the Outer Banks. Many people tell us they feel like they're in a lodge instead of a hotel especially in the winter months.

We hope that you will be able to come and visit again another time and please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to help make reservations for your next stay! Thank you, Tonia

This Hotel is quaint, cozy and a maybe 25-50 steps and you are on the beach. Was able to cook in my room, with stove full size refrigerator and microwave. Just Loved it, and the Lobby is cozy with fireplace burning and homemade cookies and hot apple cider for guest.

We were initally hooked by the idea of being on the beach, but this stop was much more. Uon entering, we spotted the lobby fireplace with a warming cozy fireplace. Our initial greeting by Zack, our desk clerk, was warm and charming. He was helpful about where to go and what to see and do.
Our room was a converted king to a king suite. this meant that a wall was removed and converted two rooms to one to include a kitchen/ lining/dining room. Most importantly, it created 2 exits to the room-- from the hall and the outside parking lot. Comfortable, clean, and a good location.
WE are so delighted we came upon this gem.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are easy access if you have trouble with steps.

The facility is older has been around for many years. Each time we visit it's cleanliness and fireplace continue to be an enjoyment to us. We were sent to the local Y for pool and fitness center. Y is located only 3 miles away is beautiful . Breakfast was wonderful and in a restful breakfast room. Cider and cookies were enjoyed in afternoon. Nice clean spot to get away and located on the ocean.

Very dissatisfied. Our room had a weird smell to it. When we left the door open the smell went away for a little while. Housekeeping never cleaned our bathroom during our entire stay. I became ill during our stay and had to leave 1 night early. They would not give me a refund of any kind, not even a partial credit. I even asked to pay a late check out fee. Apparently they don't have those. When I contacted the manager after getting home, it took him about a month to finally get back to me after I had to contact Days Inn Corporate several times. He finally wrote a condescending letter to me, calling me a lyer and making things up that I never said nor did. The room wasn't worth the money I paid for it, and it definitely wasn't worth the hassle he put me through. I will never stay at another Days Inn or it's affiliates ever again.
