Ocean view room

Posted 08-Feb-2016
Pros: Clean, comfortable and view of the ocean
Cons: Another chair for relaxing
My main requirement was a comfortable room with an ocean view -- and a desk to work on. It met all those requirements. Another chair, besides the desk chair, would have been nice. However, it was very clean and the bed was comfortable, and I could see the ocean as I caught up on paperwork. My husband enjoyed walking along the beach. Too windy for me.

Dated hotel, but good location

Posted 28-Oct-2015 on Hotels
The hotel is in a great location close to restaurants and shopping and is right on the beach. Unfortunately, the hotel has thin walls and floors. You can hear conversations through the walls and footsteps if people are walking (or children are running) upstairs if you are in the annex closest to the beach. Opt for a second floor room or perhaps try one of the other buildings.

We appreciate your coming to the Outer Banks and for staying with us. I am sorry if you experienced any noise issue during your stay with us--it's not something we normally have an issue with and again I am sorry for that. We hope that you are able to come to the beach again another time and perhaps might try one of the other many room types we have to offer. Thank you, Tonia

One Night on the Outer Banks

Posted 28-Oct-2015 on Hotels
Just like most of the reviews. This hotel has so much to offer; great location, great staff. However, it is desperate need of a renovation. Old fixtures with rust. Chipping paint. The one saving grace is the staff.

We appreciate your taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. We are actually now going through our list of renovation plans as we do each year in the fall and have already started some (you might have seen that going on while you were here). We hope you are able to return to the Outer Banks again and hopefully will visit with us when you can. Thank you, Tonia

nice hotel very close to beach

Posted 26-Oct-2015
Pros: breakfast was delicious and the facilities were very clean.
Cons: make sure you confirm that the room you are getting has an ocean view if that's what you are looking for.
Location: great restaurants and places to enjoy water sports. near a few lighthouses and fun little towns.
staff was very nice and friendly. Part of the hotel was right on the beach front. Second half of the hotel was across the street. Hotel room was a nice size. comfortably fits four (two beds).

Thank you for staying with us and we totally agree with your "cons" part. You will want to make sure the words "oceanview" or "oceanfront" are in the description line item for your room type on your confirmation; otherwise the room type will not have a view. We have 3 buildings on the oceanfront side of the road and 1 building across the street on the pond so room types can vary in location. Otherwise we are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope we can see you again at the beach!

Not as advertised.

Posted 19-Oct-2015
Pros: Staff
My "oceanfront" room faced west, 180 degrees away from the ocean. No cups or glasses in room. Wifi didn't work. Staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean and in good condition but overall a disappointing experience.

Thank you for coming to the Outer Banks. We would urge guests prior to check in to confirm that their room type does have a view if that is the type of room that you wish to reserve so it may be rectified prior to your arrival if need be. Our wireless network has just been recently installed and I am sorry that you were not able to connect. I hope that the front desk was alerted so that they were able to contact the installation company to have it resolved. Otherwise I am happy that you found everything clean and tidy and the staff helpful and friendly. Thank you.
