Quality Inn Carolina Oceanfront
Ranked #17 of 18 Hotels in Kill Devil Hills
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Stayed for 4 nights from 29th September, large room overlooking the sea on 2nd floor, lovely balcony. Beautiful beach 2 minutes away and that allows for taking the stairs! Staff very friendly, worth a mention, reception and breakfast staff, be nice to them Quality Inn they are great!
Lovely position on the Outer Banks to travel North or South, only problem we encounter was that the US Government shut down on 1st October, and so did many of the attractions we went to see, with armed guards patrolling trails and beaches and blocking roads. Hardly the Hotels fault!
I would love to stay there again and fully recommend it.

We had a beach front room on the 3rd floor, so we left the door open to the balcony so we could hear the ocean at night. We also enjoyed just sitting on the balcony enjoying the scenery on the beach. The room was clean, roomy and comfortable, with nice beds. They were in the process of painting the walkways to the rooms, so some areas were closed off for a couple of days, but it didn't cause too many problems. The breakfast area was nice, with a good selection of items. The staff was very accomodating to our request for a late check out time, as we were on a tour for longer than was anticipated due to an accident on the road. Hotel is a great place to headquarter for an Outer Banks vacation, as it is convenient to most of the attractions in the area. A very good value for the money.

Room Tip: Upper floor beachfront rooms provide the best view of the beach.

This hotel room was just a place to sleep for us before Carolina Designs could rent us our beach house. (Carolina Designs is awesome, by the way). We always come down a day early for a full vacation experience. This hotel was just fine for our purpose. The interior could be refreshed, but they did serve a continental breakfast and the front desk workers were extremely friendly. There is a nice path to the ocean, and a pool. Parking was a bit tricky as we were there the same time as a surfing tournament. We had to park across beach road which I didn't care for since our vehicle was out of sight. Other than that, this hotel was good for a one night stay.

Room Tip: I wouldn't spend the extra money on ocean front for a night

Very clean hotels. Right next to the beach..but don't be fooled by the name. Most rooms are NOT Ocean Front. But it is right beside the beach. Paid cash for our room because our bank put a hold on our card because of fraud, but I swear we were charged an extra $20..but I can't accuse someone of stealing. So if you pay in cash, make sure you triple count it!! Overall great hotel and location!

This is your typical 3 star hotel. Room was decent, with plenty of space. Bed was comfortable. The older A/C unit was very loud but kept the room cool. Not a lot of bells and whistles but not worthy of the bad reviews either. The hotel is a bit older and more like a motel with the front door of your hotel room leading directly outside instead of in a hallway. The pool.was ok but not the most inviting. I say that because the day I wanted to get in, it was full of sand from the beachgoers. The price was great. The hotel offered a continental breakfast that was very not very appealing with only instant oatmeal, cereal and a few pastries, however for a quick meal, it would be acceptable. This was my first trip to the OBX and the hotel's location was excellent. A short drive south to Nags Head and Hattaras and north to Duck and Corolla. The hotel's location is walking distance to the beach and a short car ride to many eating and shopping spots. If you decide to stay at this hotel, please keep an open mind that it is not a Ritz Carlton, but a Quality Inn. I do suggest asking for a room with a ocean view on the 2nd or 3rd floor. Ocean view on the 1st floor faces a fence. Other rooms face a parking lot and don't have a private balcony.

You can't beat the location being right on the beach with easy access. The rooms are not decrepit but not really updated either and are reasonably clean. The breakfast is good considering the price of the room. One pet peeve is that they allow smokers to smoke outside the rooms on the balcony which is irritating. Very comfortable beds.

The location was great, desk staff nice, we even were able to check in a couple hours early. But when we got in the room it was damp smelling. The carpet was very worn and stained. I wore my flip flops in the room. The beds were good, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was tiny. Breakfast was good. The wi-fi was useless. I couldn't log on at all. Even in the "business center" we couldn't stay connected. This was quality with a lowercase " q".
