We stayed there for the OBX Wedding Expo at the beginning of Jan 2007.
The view from the room was breathtaking as we had an oceanview, so we could take in the sounds and smells of the ocean.
Overall it was clean, but there was a lot of work going on so the hotel's pool was closed and there were a lot of places marked off for construction, some of it due to the hurricanes.
From what I remember the hotel itself was clean, the service and attitudes of the employees were great.
I would stay there again, pending it wasn't still under construction/renovations.
