We stayed in unit A3 which has a side view (no view of beach). But that was OK, a short walk up a grass yard and you were at the ocean. Our unit offered 1 bedroom with 2 queen beds, 2 full bathrooms, kitchen & living area. There was a privacy curtain between the 2 queen beds. The kitchen needed...

If you are accustomed to staying at a Ritz Hotel - this is not the place for you. What you get here is the best beach access anywhere on the island. This is an older building built before any dune laws. That makes it closer to the beach than any other building on the island. You are really yards away...

We stayed in an oceanfront efficiency on the top floor, and other family members stayed in an oceanfront two bedroom on the first floor. We have stayed here many times over the years, but it has been a few years since our last visit. The updated tile floors are a nice change (they used to be carpeted and got wet...

I wish I had known the following information before booking a stay at Whaler Inn Beach Club. The "motel rooms" only have one full sized bed. Might be ok for some, not for us. No desk or table either. The mattress itself was inside a zipped plastic cover that we could feel and hear every time we moved. A manager...

Just returned from our spring trip to the Whaler Inn Beach Club in Atlantic Beach, NC, or Pine Knoll Shores, and it was fantastic! The weather was superb all week, with only one day of rain; sunshine and warm temps otherwise. The facility is recently renovated with new furniture, tiled floors, new kitchen cabinets, and granite counter tops--beautiful! With our...

Situated perfectly mid-island right on the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, the Whaler Inn though not new, is newly refurbished inside and out! It is the best rental or buy on the beach with tile floors,granite counter tops in new kitchens. The Whaler layout includes 2 BR & 2BA units or 1BR& 2BA units with laundry room included. There are accomodations for...

Love the Whaler Inn Beach Club.....many new upgrades....new kitchen countertops and cabinets....new ceramic tile throughout. Very comfortable. Great any time of the year...heated pool and hot tub. The staff are all very accommodating and always go out of their way to be helpful! Right on the beach......nothing like the view!

Love this place! Great family atmosphere. I feel comfortable sending my 12yo and 5yo together down to the beach while I watch from my third floor balcony. Decent wifi means I can choose between cable or my Hulu or Netflix accounts. The kitchens are in the process of being updated and the new ones are wonderful! They have moved the...

We had a great time at the Whaler Inn, charming beach front room and nice facilities. Such fun when we visited with others down on vacation too. We will be coming back for sure. We did some of everything while here; preparing meals and eating in and dining out for breakfast lunch and dinner. Walk right out to the beach...
