Overall, a disappointing room for the money.

Posted 07-Jun-2017
Pros: This hotel was on the beach, and even though I didn't have my dogs with me, the hotel is pet-friendly, so I was able to meet some new canine friends!
Cons: Aggravating, and potentially dangerous sliding glass doors, bathroom updating, an area for recharging electronics and update vending machines.
Location: The location is great, with direct access to the beach. There are good restaurants nearby within walking distance.
The people were friendly, the hotel is on the beach, the location is good, they have done some updates like painting and newer laminate flooring. Unfortunately, there were many things that were far below my expectations. The bathroom was in desperate need of updating. There was a sliding glass door that was extremely difficult to open, close and lock. It had some rusted metal sticking out at the base of the door on the outside.

Pros: On the beach
Cons: A little sprucing up (painting etc.)
Location: Lots of things to do nearby. If you like fast food there are four fast food restaurants a quarter mile away.
Nice hotel on the beach. A little tight on parking but overall easy access

Do not recommend

Posted 27-May-2017
This is my first negative review ever but, I have to be honest. The moment I checked in I looked at our towels and three of the four, had stains. The carpet had white dog hair on it and I had to walk through several smokers to get to my room. The shower head either had black beads or mold where the water came out. I told myself they were black beads instead of clear. I wanted an upgrade and they wanted another $56.00 PER night. My 12 year old son said, it's not worth it. I stayed here in 1997 and had fond memories. I will not stay here again. It looks like it has not been updated since 1964. I stayed at the Ramada a few doors down a couple of months ago and had a GREAT stay. Save yourself the heartache and keep searching unless you like smoke and have a dog, then it's perfect.

The hotel was extremely outdated and appeared more like a dingy motel.

Renovations and pool?

Posted 07-May-2017
Pros: Location on the beach is good and restaurants are close.
Cons: New carpets and renovations. Exterior had lots of peeling paint and places where siding was missing.
The Hotel advertised renovated rooms and a pool. Room were definitely not renovated and the pool was closed.

Pool is seasonal, and typically is open by mid May. We are renovating, some rooms with more renovations than others. All have had new carpets replaced in last 3 years. We just finished final repairs from Hurricane Mathew in the fall that damaged some of our stucco. All done now!

We stayed there once before and had a better time than this last time due to the bed being horribly unconfortable...no painful. The staff is nice the rooms are fair and the location is great

Relaxing time in the OBX

Great area and comfortable accommodations. Note that the breakfast off season consists of muffins, bagels, oatmeal/cereal and coffee.
