“Excellent beachfront hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Just stayed one night before our house was ready but we had a wonderful experience. Needed a late checkout which wasn't avail but they allowed us to use all the facilities for as long as we needed. Clean and nice rooms.

Great place...huge rooms, fridge & microwave, patio (we were in the tower--balcony if you're up higher) and very clean. Breakfast was good, although not enough seating & had to take our food back to our room, minor problem. Beautiful gazebo overlooking the beach. We didn't use either pool but they looked great. Would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: Top 2 floors of the tower have ocean view. Would have gotten one of those but they were taken. Room...

I was nervous about staying at Shutters because I usually prefer chain hotels, but we wanted the local experience. Shutters is located on the beach and close to shopping and attractions. You can walk to the beach on the walkway and there are showers to wash off your feet. The front desk staff was very nice, but not helpful with restaurant recommendations. Breakfast was typical. The walkways could use some maintenance because the painted concrete was peeling.
My biggest complaint was the dampness in the room. The air conditioner ran continuously, but couldn’t keep the humidity at bay. We stayed on the second floor of the main building. Perhaps it is better in the Tower building?

Stayed July 2013, traveled with family

Great location on the beach! Extended weekend trip for Labor Day. Stayed in an efficiency on the 2nd floor with a pool view. Room was very spacious and comfy with queen beds, full refrigerator & Stove and microwave. Room was very clean. Short walk to the beach.

We chose Monday through Wednesday nights because we knew the large crowds were gone after Labor Day. We were oceanfront on the 3rd and then the 4th floor in the tower building. The rooms were very clean with a balcony. We had a microwave, and small refrigerator. The staff were very courteous and helpful. There is a continental breakfast with 2 waffle irons. We had planned to stay in 3 different hotels but ended up staying at the Shutters because the rate was the best compared to several well known chain hotels.
We would definitely recommend Shutters!

Room Tip: Choose a 3rd or 4th floor room if you are paying for an oceanfront room and want to see more than th...

I will admit I am pretty finicky about where I sleep. Hotels are rare on the OBX. Lots of older mom and pop motels but this one was in pretty good shape. Our room was spacious and clean and we did use the pools. The breakfast was good for a hotel buffet but it can get pretty busy so go earlier rather than later. Prime location and front desk had good suggestions on places to eat. We will be back for the nice value, cleanliness, and hospitality.
