The bath room arrangement was poor. The door blocked access to the toilet paper. You had to get up from the toilet to get the toilet paper (about 5 ft in front of the toilet on the wall. The open door blocked access ,) The window Air conditioner was old and very noisy and rattled loudly when the compressor kicked in. The TV was out of adjustment. There was a small hole in the carpet tn front of the night stand. The bed pillows were old, worn out, and extremely limp. We could not sleep with these pillows. They were very uncomfortable. The free breakfast was good.

Average Hotel

Posted 14-Jul-2017
Pros: The breakfast was great
Cons: Need railings fixed/added where they are missing Need ramp leading up to rooms for wheelchairs and rolling luggage
Location: Location is fine
The hotel is dated on the outside, but the staff tries to keep it clean. No ants seen/found in our room, so that was good. There were railings missing outside of our room and one of our little ones almost fell through. The sign "Mariner" does not light up the "e" and "r" at night, which makes the hotel look a little run down from a superficial appearance. Overall, it's a 3 start stay. Price should be a little lower given the "oldness" look and feel. The beach was being replinished with sand so we had to talk a little ways (2-3 minutes). Would've been a nice touch had the hotel rented a small transport vehicle to shuttle guests back and forth (especially the elderly and small children).

Nice view

Posted 10-Jul-2017
Our room was not ready at check-in time. Hotel staff was not very friendly. They had a 4th of July Bar-B-Q, did not inform us of this event. Told desk clerk at check-out, he did not seem to care.

Decent hotel. Limited amenities.

Posted 09-Jul-2017
We arrived early and were graciously allowed to check into our room. Room was clean and full kitchen made our stay feel more like home. Fresh towels every day. Breakfast was sufficient. Staff went out of their way to accommodate us.

room size

Posted 08-Jul-2017
Pros: Close to beach
Cons: New carpet and a way to get bags up stairs
The room is very small for the price if I had known that I would have stayed on the bottom floor where room are larger and there is no elevator. The carpet was old and thin had to put down towels so would not step on carpet tacts. The staff was very friendly.

Pros: Location!
Cons: Try to have all guests stay in the units close to the beach.
Location: Lots of places worth to be visited!!
My unit was located across the lobby and had to either drive or walk across the street to reach the office or the beach. My room was not either ocean view or ocean front. The free breakfast was not bad.

At OBX for the first time

Posted 30-Jun-2017
The room was small and rather outdated. The great thing about it was it was close to a few good shops and the movie theater. The breakfast cool,however, on the day we checked out we were eating and the girl working started shutting down everything. Yes they stop breakfast at 9:30 and it was just after 9:30 that my husband had his waffle in the waffle maker and she unplugged it.

Not your average Days Inn

Posted 17-May-2017
This hotel has been recently renovated. Our room was especially nice, with all new appliances and very nice fixtures throughout. My only negative Thing to report is that the walls are kind of thin and you can hear your neighbors.
