Our room was very clean and the decor was attractive. The king bed was comfortable, but I would suggest bringing your own pillow if you do not like thick pillows (I did not ask for a thinner one, which might have been available). Everything was in good working order, except that the sliding door to the balcony took a pretty good effort to open and close.
The staff was friendly and efficient. Sadly, the great little bar/restaurant that used to be located in the Ocean Reef has been replaced with a continental breakfast room, but that is happening other places as well.
We had an oceanfront room and the view is wonderful. We have, in the past also had ocean/pool view rooms and they give a decent view of the ocean as well, just at an angle.
For us it really boils down to the fact the Ocean Reef Suites is exactly that...suites. There is a sizeable living room, a kitchenette, bath with additional sink/mirror area, and a full bedroom with its own door. We find this very useful it one of us wants to sleep and the other stay up and watch TV or read (the bedroom has its own TV as well).
There is also a great convenience store/beach supply/gas station right across the street where you can get pretty much anything you're likely to need without driving. A number of good restaurants are either within a few minutes walk or easy drive.
Overall, while the Ocean Reef Suites is not the newest property in Kill Devil Hills, it is the only place we consider staying because it has real suites, is well located, clean and cheerfully decorated. It is not the cheapest place on the beach but then...again...it offers real suites and not just a long room called a suite. We have stayed there many times before and, so far, would not consider staying elsewhere.
