The Blue Heron Motel is an oceanfront (not 600 steps from, 1/2 block from, and other deceptive phrases) property in Nags Head.
To start, check in with the friendly staff was uneventful. When making our reservation, we were told that since our room was on the first floor, a view of the ocean was unlikely, since there are low sand dunes between the Blue Heron and the beach. To our pleasant surprise, we could indeed see the ocean from our room.
The rooms at the Blue Heron are quite large. The beds are firm, which is to our liking. The room we checked into was very clean. Contrary to an earlier review, a box of tissues was present in the room. The bathroom was clean, and everything worked as it was supposed to. Shower flow was pretty good, and there was never a shortage of hot water.
We had no noise problems, whether due to quiet neighbors, good soundproofing, or both.
We went to the clean, lovely beach that the Blue Heron fronts, so we did not use the indoor or outdoor pools. Our friendly neighbor did, and reported that both pools were quite nice.
The Blue Heron has no restaurant, but it is across the street from the very nice South Beach Grille, and it is walking distance and/or a short-drive from many good dining choices.
There is FREE Wi-Fi at the Blue Heron, and it worked quite nicely from our room. There's plenty of free parking here, too.
The Blue Heron isn't the Ritz or the Four Seasons, but you don't pay $800/night either. It is an excellent value as compared to its competitors in Nags Head and other nearby properties in the Outer Banks.
