If you are looking for a good value right on the beach and aren't going to spend too much time in your room, this is the place for you.

The hotel was filthy with mold on furnishings and furniture. The bathroom was not cleaned at all. The staff at the front desk was more interested in chatting than doing their jobs. The pool was a cesspool and closed! With a lovely view you would think that the owners would take better care of their property and guests.

Stayed here one night unexpectedly during a brief trip to visit friends nearby. There's plenty of house rentals but very few hotels in the area, so this one seems to stay booked full despite a relatively high price for a poor quality room. This is the kind of room you'd pay no more than $50 a night for if it was in a different location. The elevator inspection sign said the property was built in 1974, and it shows. Badly in need of rehab. Windows are so dirty/fogged your view is literally obscured. Baths are ancient, the water pressure was non-existent, and the non-smoking room had at some point in the past been smoked in - the smell was still noticeable. On the plus side, the front desk staff was very nice, and at least the room was as clean as it could be given the condition. It's definitely right on the beach, but sadly, it appears part of that is due to beach erosion - it's literally eroded away almost to underneath the hotel, and the entire stretch of beach within walking distance is narrow and unattractive, with closely packed houses and buildings right down to the water. Too bad North Carolina has not done more to control development and restore the beach.

I had a reservation booked months in advance with the events coordinator from the hotel and booked 30 rooms it was the most horrible experience I have ever had.

Upon arrival, of course I had to send a room list for my guest ahead of time, they had no record of me at all (who paid the deposit and reserved everything with signed contract etc) and one of the guest was not listed. They then told me all rooms were booked up and had no extra rooms that night..Imagine the feeling.

They finally got it straight and offered me accomodations in one of their suites for a night.

Well the day of the event we had rented the big ballroom downstairs and it developed a leak right in the hall way of the ballroom..What a night mare. They finally found and isolated the leak only for the weekend (it re-occured) they put dirty ice coolers in the middle of the floor to catch the leaks (numerous) and one was a yellowish color with foam on top whcih they assured me it was only a hot water pipe leak..

I complained to the hotel managment and got nowhere.

I called main office and got no where again.

This place I would not recommend. They assured me they had remodeled completely..All would have been fine with exception of the mold smell in the room and the staff..

I do not recommend this hotel.

Third world management untrained and treat employees poorly. Ocean is great, but otherwise characteristic of a 3rd rate trailer park. Would not stay again for free.

A wedding party was booked 2 floors below us and when the music started the walls of our room were shaking. When we contacted the front dest we were spoken to rudely and the loud music persisted. If we could have found another room we would have checked out right then.
We were afraid of being subjected to more of the same the next night so we checked out a day early. We were really disappointed because the weather was gorgeous and our 5 yr. old daughter was thoroughly enjoying her first vacation to the beach.

This hotel has an incredible location right on the beach in Nag's Head. We had friendly and helpful people at the front desk during check in and out. That is where the good part of the experience ended. It is badly in need of renovation and CLEANING! The draperies, rugs and bathroom were all dirty. The plaster on the walls is crumbling around the windows. The sheets were all wrinkled leaving me to wonder if someone had slept in them before us. The pillows were old and inadequate, ditto the mattresses.
The breakfast room was crowded and airless. The deck was beautiful, right on the ocean and we took our food out there, but the furniture was uncomfortable and scattered all over the place. What a mess!!
Way past the time to put some money into this place. We often stay in Comfort Inns and have never been this disappointed. Also, my #1 complaint-not being able to even crack open a window for a cool ocean breeze.
