Toller service

Wir wurden so nett wie noch nie zuvor im Outer Banks Inn empfangen. Wir wurden mehrmals gefragt, ob alles in Ordnung sei. Das Zimmer war sauber und der Fön war super! Das Frühstück ist halt typisch amerikanisch, aber wir haben uns jeden Tag über die Kekse und den Kaffee gefreut, die im Eingang kostenlos zur Verfügung standen.

an OK place, 2 blocks from the beach

Cons: Elevator to the 3 floor. Fruit or Yogurt for breakfast. Sanitize all the rooms.
The room had a very bad, musty smell (old smoke). I had not understood that it was right on the Hwy. There was lots of traffic noise. It was centrally located and it had a shuttle to the beach. It was clean and the staff was very nice.

word to the wise

Posted 16-Aug-2015
rented two rooms, one for us and one for grandchildren and parents. Room for us had only 1 out 0f 3 lights with bulbs. Room had very musty smell and the phone didn't work. Room 2 had terrible musty smell, which we agreed if more than one day we would have asked for our money back. Ran out of local maps On positive side it was close to beach and other attractions, staff was friendly, pool was very clean. Asked for either late check-out as compensation and was refused.

The room had an odor. The air conditioner did not work very well. Our toilet paper ran out during the night and the Contenental Breakfast consisted of Cereal Mini Blueberry muffins and Bagels.

Take your ear plugs.

The Outer Banks Inn is an older motel that has been remodeled. The room was clean and the a/c worked well. The main problem was noise! Our room had a door connecting to the next room. The door was locked but through it we could hear the conversation of the people next door. Not that the people next door were loud but the voices carried through the door and I am sure they could probably hear us. The worse noise was the creaking from the room above us. We would hear a creaking noise and then foot steps. The noise from the room above us usually woke us up each morning. When sharing this with the girl at the front desk, she simply said no one had ever made that complaint before.

Quick one night before our house rental

Posted 20-Jul-2015
My husband and children and I stayed here for an over night to avoid traffic into the obx for our week vacation. The staff at night was friendly and pleasant. They explained everything thoroughly and pleasantly. The room was clean and accurately described in the hotel description online. The hotel overall is older but not shabby. The bed was comfortable and it's very convenient to have a mini fridge in the room. We couldn't hear people in the hallways after hours, the guests all seemed pretty respectful of noise. If I had anything to suggest: one would be to have no smoking near the doorways, I don't want me or my little kids walking through a cloud of smoke to get in the door. The other would be the continental breakfast. It's a great feature to have, but I would offer some fruit. Also, the people at the front desk were pleasant to other guests grabbing breakfast but didn't say a word to us. I personally had the feeling they were staring at us eating. When my husband took a second cereal bar, one woman got up to restock them (which I realize is needed for other guests) but there was an overall feeling that we were eating too much? It could be my perception because no one said anything but it was slightly uncomfy. I chose your hotel because the breakfast was included and I made sure my kids were well behaved. Over all it was a good choice and we would stay again.

Posted 16-Jul-2015
Pros: Good location. Near beach. Nice room good facility
Cons: The cleaning of the rooms could have done with some upgrades

The roome could have done with some more cleaning. In good location near beach. Staff at front desk was very nice and accommodating.

We stayed for a week and it was great. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful with everything. Rooms were nice and clean. We plan on staying here again on our next vacation to the Outer Banks!
