Our first time to OuterBanks and could not have found a better place to stay. We had an ocean view room with a balcony that we used constantly because Hurricane Joaquin was on the way. The surf was rough so the balcony was a blessing. The staff was very friendly and kept us up-to-date on the weather. They also were...

This was OK for us for one night. Outer Banks rates stay on the high side even after Labor Day. Older property but rooms have been renovated and are very clean and functional. Only complaint is spotty & slow wi-fi. Made plans late and got stuck on first floor with view of parking lot and a small sliver of ocean....

We stayed in room 404, 8/11/15 through 8/14/15. We were very pleased with the overall upkeep and cleanliness of the hotel. It's obvious there are some good people working there. The front desk was friendly and helpful. The reason for the low rating is the housekeeping issue we had. The room appeared very clean when we checked in. After the...

It rained the whole time there but the room, view, in door pool and hot tub still made the whole trip enjoyable. Great place to stay and a short walk to the beach. Included breakfast each morning. We know where we will be staying on the next vacation.

Our third stay at the Surf Side and still an outstanding value. Housekeeping standard is impeccable inside and out- especially difficult in a beachside property. The staff is very outgoing and accomodating. The beachfront is not heavily developed so the beach is not crowded at all. Little touches like the complimentary lemon water and 4PM wine tasting are a plus....

Three girlfriends and I booked our annual "Girls' Getaway" at this little gem of a hotel on the beach in Nags Head. It was our first stay at this hotel (we have stayed at other hotels and houses in the area). We were only able to get a double queen, ocean view room. What a thrill when we discovered our...

We have stayed here for short stays for the past three years. It has always been clean. Housecleaning has always been accommodating to our schedule.

The rooms are very comfortable; lots of...
