We stayed there over the Holidays. The hotel is older, but has been remodeled. The rooms were clean, and the view was wonderful. They have a heated indoor pool and Jacuzzi. The staff was so nice. They did have a light breakfast, but it consisted mainly of packaged pastries, juice, and coffee. Overall, the experience was great!

we have a few hotels we stay at when we are in the OBX this is one of them, one of a select few that have an indoor pool & hot tub must haves for your mini winter VACA, they also usually do a wine social on Friday evenings I think they have a good breakfast as well.

We spent a few days in Nags Head and chose the Nags Head Inn because it seemed to be a good location, good hotel, and good price. This all proved to be true and we were very happy with our choice. I primarily selected it because it had good reviews and ocean view rooms with balconies at prices more reasonable...

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at the Nags Head Inn Oceanfront. We are glad that you enjoyed that great ocean view from your room. Although you can see the ocean from the 2nd floor rooms, they do not have a view of the beach so they are priced lower than the 3rd...

I stayed here with a friend who was running the Obx Marathon while I ran the Southern 6 10k, and we had a good time. It was fairly convenient to all the places we needed to go, parking was ample with much of it covered, and check in and check out were a breeze. The indoor pool and hot tub...

We stayed at the Nags Head Inn in June which is the perfect time to visit the beach. The hotel is on the beach, a short walk across the parking lot and over the wooden stairs to reach the sand. Parking was easy, right onsite and free; there was plenty of parking, even for a weekend. After driving five hours...

We looked forward to being on the beach and hearing the ocean at night. This place did not disappoint us about that. The location was also good to restaurants and shopping.
