For those guests who don't plan on spending much time inside, the average quality of the motel is not really an issue. The beach and Nags Head beckon.
Our next-door neighbor evidently didn't feel the pull of the beach. He put the do-not-disturb sign on his door and cranked up the TV, which stayed on for most of two days and nights. I complained twice to the front desk about the noise. In the end, the manager had to go up and see to the problem. Yet, as we departed our room for the last time, the TV next door was still on.
Everyone we encountered behind the front desk was pleasant and helpful during our stay ... with the exception of the young woman who checked us in. The check-in can set the tone for one's entire stay in any motel, and Annie did not set a happy tone. She did not smile or welcome us with even a hint of sincerity. As she checked our reservation, I happened to mention cheerfully that her colleague (Pixie) had assigned us a nice room on the 6th floor when we called a few days before. Annie replied curtly that it was not motel policy to guarantee rooms ahead of arrival. "Well... is that room available?" I asked hopefully. "The room I'm assigning you is available," she said coldly. She repeated motel policy and seemed to imply that, because no one who answered the phone would ever violate motel policy, I must be making up the whole phone call up. Not a nice way to begin.
One of the blessings of our room was the balcony. It was great to sit on the balcony and take in the marvelous sights and sounds of the ocean. However, the lock on the doorknob was not easy to lock and the chain lock mount was coming away from the wall.
The breakfast buffet was plentiful in a bright room looking out on to the beach. The tables needed wiping down both days we were there, but the staff did so when asked.
The bathroom was adequate. The faux marble design on the shower walls, though, gave the appearance of grime.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Nags Head. The Comfort Inn provided us the means to do that. I would recommend the place conditionally.
