“Lovely view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

We were on the fifth floor and the view was spectacular. Room was very clean and quiet. Will definitely come back. The staff is friendly and helpful. Plenty of restaurants still open though it is off season. Good price for an oceanfront room in this area.

Stayed November 2012, traveled with friends

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Nags Head Inn. The fall is a great time to come to the Outer Banks – less crowds + lower prices is a great combination. We are glad that you enjoyed your time here and look forward to having you stay with us again.

Our second stay. We stayed here last year and it was lovely. Came back the first weekend of October and it was just superb. Friendly staff, everything was clean. Just lovely. Staff was very helpful on where to eat, etc. Sweet potato biscuits in the morning were just a treat. Reasonably priced.

Excellent stay at the Nags Head Inn!

We arrived very early (11 a.m.) for a 4 p.m. check in, but the front desk staff did not even hesitate. They politely took our phone number and told us they would notify the housekeepers to work on our room, noting that they would call us when the room was ready. They told us we could park and use the beach and bathrooms while we waited. AND they upgraded us from a third to a fourth floor room...even though the hotel was very full that evening. We walked, on the beach then went to lunch and the room was ready when we returned.

The room was perfect. Very clean and comfortable with everything we needed, including coffee maker, fridge, microwave and a television with Direct TV. Our view from the balcony was incredible.

Every interaction we had with hotel staff was helpful and friendly. About a mile up the road was an excellent restaurant - The Blue Moon.

This was a quick getaway for us, as we live only about 90 minutes away. We've tried a few places up and down the beach, but nothing has been as clean and comfortable and accommodating as the Nags Head Inn. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Upper level rooms offer the best oceanfront view.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Nags Head Inn. It does take some time to clean and make any necessary repairs to the guest rooms between guests so we cannot always accommodate a check in earlier than 4PM, but we do try our best. I am glad that it worked out for you and gave you a little extra time on your visit to the beautiful Outer Banks.
We are glad that you enjoyed your time at the Nags Head Inn and we look forward to your next visit.

Upon our arrival to this beachfront inn, we were warmly greeted. Our check-in was fast and easy (we did have a reservation), our room preference was honored, and they provided luggage carriers (carts) to bring our belongings to the room. Our room was neat and clean, the bed was very comfortable, and there were plenty of pillows. Included in the room were: a microwave, mini-fridge, and coffee maker, as well as an iron, ironing board, and blow-dryer. The decent sized flat-screen TV came with Direct-TV service. The hotel also has an indoor pool and hot tub with an ample supply of towels, and an ice machine (and vending machines) on every floor. They include a free limited continental breakfast every morning. We were very pleased with the housekeeping of our room as well as the common areas of the hotel. The hotel staff cheerfully gave us directions and information about places we wanted to visit. We would recommend this facility to anyone who wants beachfront lodging.

Room Tip: ask for 3rd, 4th, or 5th floor to get view of ocean

This was a great find for us. Right on the Ocean. Nice size and very clean rooms, quiet comfortable ,beds, very helpful staff. The price was probably the best in the area for on the beach hotels. Had a coffee, juice and roll bkfst. Nothing fancy but friendly attendant. This was our first time in Nags Head and would stay here again.
