Just returned from a three night stay. We found the Ocean Reef Suites to be a great fit for our family. It was our first time on the Outer Banks and we enjoyed the proximity to the Wright Brothers Memorial (great view of the Memorial from the hotel!), Jockey Ridge, and all the other Outer Banks attractions.
When I booked the room the only rooms available were smoking. They informed me that they were cleaned very very well and we should be fine. On my online reservation I requested being switched to any non smoking room that became available. Unfortunately, I forgot to mention my husband's dislike of rooms over the third floor. When I called the morning of check in to confirm they had indeed moved me to a non smoking room but it was on the top floor of the hotel. They did offer us a smoking room on a lower floor and we took a chance. I used to smoke and smoke doesn't bother me. However, the room had that smell of years of smoke. I could have lived with it but my 8 yo son really hated it and thought he would "get cancer". Remember, all of this was my fault when I didn't mention the floor preference! Anyway, the hotel could not have been more accommodating. Since the hotel was full there was nothing they could do that evening but they did arrange for us to be moved the next day to a third floor room. I hated to pack up again but housekeeping moved all of our belongings and we were told we would have access to the first room until our things had been moved to the new room. We were never "homeless" and we were never treated as a "problem" guest.
The rooms themselves were clean and spacious. Beds were comfortable, and the living room had a full couch, comfy chairs with foot stools and a table for four. The kitchen had a small fridge that was very cold, microwave, and small 4 burner stove with oven. If I was coming for a week I would probably rent one of the numerous rental homes but for a few nights the set up of this well run hotel was perfect.
The spotless Continental breakfast room was well stocked with muffins, bagels, cereals, juice and great coffee! Really a nice way to start your exploration.
One side note the hotel is right next to one of the lifeguard headquarters and there is a guard right in front of the hotel. The pool and hot tub were very clean as was the whole facility. Perfect for our first trip to the Outer Banks!
