Reviewed April 4, 2006

I have been staying with the Gladden family for over 20 years. There facilities are not as up to date as what is on the market today. They provide a comfortable, clean environment and make long standing clients feel right at home.

Stayed October 2005

We have visited Nags Head many, many times, and have always stayed at the Bkue Herron Motel. The cleanest motel I have ever stayed at. It is family owned, with the owners on site. We got a real sense of appreciating when we walked into the office, after a days travel, and the owner greeted us with, "welcome home." Highly recommended for a relaxed stay at the Outer Banks. Close to everything. Beautifully lighted for the Christmas season.

The room was a little old, but clean. The view from the room was astonishing! We enjoyed beautiful sunrise and sunset views. Room amenity is minimum, some soaps but no shampoo available even at the office.

Love this place, we've been back 3 times since finding it by accident, love the old beach feel, fabulous view of the ocean and the bay from all 2nd and 3rd floor rooms, one of the cleanest hotels I've ever seen. Staff is helpful and the hotel is family run, already have reservations in for the 2006 season. Nice outside and inside pools with hot tub section, convenient to all stores and restaurants, also safe, nice family area. No fears about going out for a walk very nice area.
