Basic affordable beachfront motel

Posted 22-Nov-2014
Pros: Location is convenient to beach and to dining, fishing pier, etc.
Cons: Rooms should be double-checked before guests arrive to make sure everything works.
Location: Great beachside resort area - fishing pier is next door, Hatteras Island, Jockey's Ridge and Wright Brothers Memorial are short drives away.
Room was clean, staff was friendly. Our early check in request was honored...but there was no running water in room at check in. This was corrected quickly enough, and the rest of our stay was uneventful and pleasing. Location is great, on the dunes and convenient to dining, shopping, fishing pier, and much more. It's a great value for the price. This was our second stay; we'll definitely return. If you require luxury accommodations, stay elsewhere. If you like a clean, basic, affordable room a short walk from the surf, this is a great choice!

Hotel was basic, older style motel. It was very close to the beach, but bathroom and dresser drawers needed repair. For the price, it was what I paid for.

Colonial Inn

Posted 25-Oct-2014
Pros: Quaint.
Cons: Car parking area.
Location: Great right on beach.
Very convenient right on beach through rear entrance. Immediately next to Nags Head Pier. Older premises and the external appearance could do with an updAte. When busy parking may be a problem. Room clean although on the small side for a US motel. Linen, towels etc excellent. Small shower. Fridge and microwave. Plenty hot water and good air con. Did not sample swimming pool but it looked fine. I got this on special price. I think the full price may be on expensive side.

The dresser draws were broken and at 8 am the power kept coming on and off, when I brought that up to the front desk her comment was "oh yeah, the guy had to keep switching the breakers"!

Awesome experience! Low price. Clean room decorated in lovely beachy blues and greens. Gorgeous ocean view!! Fishing pier just steps away. Delicious fresh seafood restaurant/bar within steps of your back door! We will definitely be back...best kept secret for the low maintenance traveler!

Nice, older motel on the Ocean front!

Posted 20-Sep-2014
Pros: See above! Also, the staff was friendly and seemed will to help with questions!
Cons: Nothing based on my experience!
Location: Other than the fishing pier next door, other restaurants and shopping were near by! The Wright Brothers Memorial was also close!
I arrived early but my room was ready and staff let me check in. I enjoyed that this motel is located next to the Nags Head fishing pier even though I am not a fisherman. The pier had a restaurant and a bar so that if I did not want to drive I could enjoy food and entertainment right at the Motel.

It is what you would expect in a 2 star hotel, older motel but with a nice pool, comfortable room and right on the Beach. Next to the Nags Head Pier. It's not the nicest most luxurious place, but it was just fine. Beds were comfortable with upgraded flatscreens and wireless internet.
