Location, location, location!!

Posted 31-Aug-2017
Pros: Everything
Cons: Some may suggest newer bedspreads and room decor and carpet. It doesn't bother me personally as long as the room is clean.
Location: Beach, restaurants, convenience store all within walking distance or short drive.
We thoroughly enjoyed visiting OBX and the Days Inn certainly contributed to the enjoyment. The beach access was perfect. We did not have a beachside/outside room but I'll book one next time. The outdoor shower was nice to keep so much sand out of the room and vehicle. The staff members were fantastic and friendly. The room was very clean and comfortable with great AC. I liked the old feel to the facility with the stained wood walls, doors, and stairs. The breakfast area was large enough to not feel cramped with numerous guests eating in the mornings. I will certainly book this facility again.

Very cute, older hotel. Staff is very friendly. Wonderful view of ocean in some rooms. Room was clean just a little damp from the AC. Breakfast was wonderful!

On vacation for 3 day at OBX

Posted 18-Aug-2017
Pros: Great location, staff was nice and nice pool and Beach Volleyball.
Cons: Dehumidify in room with older AC units
Location: I like road bicycling and there are plenty of paths to ride and shoulders on the roads so need to be in traffic. Beach was great, Light towers 4 each
The hotel is next to beach easy walk right in to it. The hotel is older and has been through a lot of storms. It has regular rooms and Suites. With the high humidity of this area the room has a musky smell even though every thing look not to old but can only imagine it is hard keeping a place aired out when the humidity never dropped below 60% for our stay. For the price we paid on Expedia it was more then worth it. The breakfast was good, standard buffet limited style for a hotel/motel. Same you get in many comparable Hotels chains to the Days Inn.

Direct comparison to a 4 star hotel.

Posted 23-Jul-2017
I recently took a trip to VA beach which is nearby the outer banks. During my stay at VA beach we stayed at a 4 star hotel for 200 a night. This came out to about 200 a night as well and we much preferred this place and here's why: Free breakfast - not super fancy but it was perfect for a light start to a beach day. Location - 3 minute walk to the beach, 3 minutes to convenience store with alcohol, snacks, and other beach supplies Ice machine - ice machine worked great and saved us so much money on ice. The biggest cons were the AC could use an upgrade and their were a ton of kids at the hotel. When I come back, I'll get on of the rooms with a balcony and a kitchenette. The room we got was very small but we didn't stay in it much as the beach was awesome.

Great location, but rooms are very much different.

Posted 21-Jul-2017
We stayed in this hotel about 6years ago and like someone already mentioned the room was tiny. This year we booked the same hotel and same two beds room with fridge and microwave and got a larger room. Sleeping area was the same still small but there was another room attached with sitting area and full size kitchen. Location is great right on the beach and the breakfast was awesome. Beds are small and pillows are lumpy, small sleeping area, no space to move around. The one awefull thing was a noisy in-wall ac unit. The room is long and narrow and it blows straight to your head when you sleep and over the couch we could not sit on without gwtting cold. Pretty much we had to turn off a/c and sweat when we were in and turn it on when we were out. Also there was only one small window which is not enough for two long narrow rooms. The bathroom was small as well but recently renovated and felt very clean. The room had two doors from the hotel and outdoor access to the patio which we used most of the times. The hotel is small and kind of gives family feeling when you stay longer and meet your neighboors often. The overall feeling is ok, but I would probably chose a house if I had to stay more than 3-4 days esp if you have kids.

Nice motel close to the beach

Posted 18-Jul-2017
Great location, comfortable room, and decent complimentary breakfast. Hallway can be a bit noisy but you expect this at facilities this small and close to the beach. Will definitely stay here again!

Nice Surprise

Posted 13-Jul-2017
Pros: The continental breakfast, the friendly hotel staff, and the location.
Location: Wright Brothers Memorial, the beach, Kitty Hawk Kites, Jockey's Ridge.
We booked our room on Expedia and for some reason it charged an old card we'd deleted years ago. When it came time to charge our reservations, the hotel was nice enough to hold the room and call us. This location is VERY BUSY during the summer and they went above and beyond by doing this. The room was very clean. The continental breakfast had various selections to choose from and very convenient.
