My husband surprised me with a quick getaway weekend without the kids. The "Heros" package provided discounts on the room, meals and spa services. The staff were so friendly and attentive. The smores kit in the room was such a nice treat to use in the giant fire pit outside. Our room was in the oceanside, and the sound of...

We went there during Super Bowl weekend. The room was spacious and laid out perfectly. 2 Tv's, fireplace, huge bathroom and nice deck. Restaurant was great and friendly. I can't wait to go back. Good location out of the town. Nice bar. You'll be glad on your choice!

The indoor pool was wonderful. The people there are so polite & attentive to your needs. Since my husband is a veteran we were able to take advantage of the "hero's" rate & discounts on food. We even saw six, yes 6, beautiful deer come out of the dune grasses & stroll around right outside our deck. So neat! We...

Really enjoyed our brief getaway. Staff had great attitude. Meal at Kimballs Kitchen was very good. One housekeeping point; the hairdryers could be a bit more powerful. All in all we look forward to our next getaway at the Sanderling!

For those of us who don't live near the ocean, the Sanderling is the perfect getaway. So close to the ocean - you don't even have to open the windows to hear the wonderful ocean waves! We loved the isolation of the hotel; miles away from the crowds and traffic. Perfect escape in the winter. Getting up in the morning...

Last minute trip to Duck and first time to Outer Banks. The Sanderling was beautiful and our experience was positive with the except of the staff we encountered at the spa. We went to spa to purchase some souvenirs and were completely ignored even when we had our selection at register. Will definitely visit again. Maybe skip the spa.

Room and amenities were great. Breakfast experience at Life Saving Station with poor service. Spa manicure produced a problem-nail polish peeling off same day as application. Evening meal same location enjoyable

Spent two wonderful nights here. The staff is wonderful and so friendly and helpful. We had a King room with partially obstructed (their term) view of the ocean which overlooked their patio bar area. The view was great, we could sit on our balcony and watch the waves roll in. The bathroom was very updated and large and the glass...
