Stayed one night waiting for condo to open up. This is a historic hotel. They have done upgrades to make the stay more comfortable. Microwaves, Fridge, Safe. Yep the rooms are small for four, but it's on the beach, has a swimming pool and provides what I would say is an acceptable breakfast. Staff was friendly. The staff gave us very useful information on the area.

Room Tip: Stayed in a street front room for one night. If i had stayed longer I would have wanted a beach view room.

I was highly dissapointed in this hotel. Had never been to the Outer Banks and went by their website for the hotel. Award winning? Where? The continental breakfast was nothing to say the least. The rooms were horrible and don't get me talking about the bathroom. No storage, water went from hot to cold with no notice, very small. The price should be no more than $75.00 per night for the suite. The rooms are not oceanfront as the website leads you to believe. So for $250.00 a night we felt we were completely screwed. Had a bunch of yahoos who stayed up until 4:00 and had no privacy on our balcony. One big long balcony facing the parking lot. Will never stay here again and will tell everyone about this place.

We appreciate your taking the time to write a review of our hotel. I am sorry that your stay was not enjoyed more. We do have oceanfront rooms--they are on the 2nd floor facing the ocean, though a majority of rooms do not have an oceanview. If you would prefer to make reservtions for a room with a view, it is best to call the hotel directly. Customers have been misled or misunderstood several third party websites where they thought they were booking a room with a view but did not. If you are reserving your stay on the internet, if the line item description does not mention oceanview (for any hotel on the beach) then there would be no view. This is a good reason to follow up with the hotel if you book online just to make sure.

I am sorry that you had an issue with noise. If we had been alerted at the front desk we would have been happy to have called the room causing the issue and given them a warning. If a noise complaint should occur, our front desk knows they are to give 1 warning and after that the guest is asked to leave hotel for noncompliance.

I do hope that you were able to enjoy the Outer Banks during your trip and am sorry that your stay with us what not as expected.

Thank you--Tonia

The staff at the Day's Inn Oceanfront in Kill Devil Hills, N.C. is very quick to respond to your requests and or questions. We also found them very helpful yet professional at doing their jobs.
While the hotel is quite dated it's 100 yards or less from Kill Devil Hill's beach directly behind the hotel which is convenient.
However the room we had was plagued with slow water drainage problems in the bathtub & sink, which they fixed.
In addition the water temperature of the shower fluctuated wildly between hot and cold making it sometimes painful to shower.
And it wasn't until our second day there that we discovered that there wasn't a remote for the tv, which we informed the desk of, yet were never offered one?
Perhaps that's because of the relaxed way I was requesting one, so I don't hold this fopah against the visibly hard working staff!
Frankly I'm a Best Western fan, but the Day's Inn Oceanfront was all I could find at the last minute, and though it has a few quirk's we might consider going back?

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 2nd floor of the "swimming pool" side of this hotel, you'll get a better beach view!

Thank you for staying at our Days Inn Oceanfront for your stay while on the Outer Banks. I am sorry that you experienced issues during your stay with us but am pleased that our staff was able to remedy the issues. The hotel style is more like an inn instead of a hotel, so it's more of the traditional Olde Nags Head style as evidenced from our lobby pictures.

The 2nd floor rooms on the "pool side" are all suites which are 1 large room with 2 double beds and a living room/kitchen. However they are not always on the 2nd floor because the rooms underneath them on the 1st floor are also the same room type--so it may be on the 1st or 2nd floor. The only rooms that are guaranteed to be on the 2nd floor are the oceanview rooms (it will say "oceanview" in the line item description if you book on the internet) which are the rooms at the end facing the ocean.

We do hope that you are able to visit with us again the next time you visit the Outer Banks and please feel free to contact me directly for reservations!

Thanks---Tonia

I chose this hotel b/c the room was advertised as a suite; unfortunately, the room was more of a studio style, no walls b/w sleeping area & kitchen/living area. The door from outside in worked about 50% of the time. There was something that resembled fleas I saw on more than one occasion and the pool walls had a hefty amount of algae. I expressed my concerns on more than 1 occasion, as did another guest with an attitude of they didn't see the issue or how it could be a problem. I would at least expect some care or concern on the staffs' part.

We do appreciate your staying at our Days Inn Oceanfront on the Outer Banks and your taking the time to write a review. I am sorry for any confusion as to our room types at our property. When guests make reservations with our property directly, we always mention that our suites are "1 large room with either 2 double beds or a king bed and a living room/kitchen" and that there is no separation between the living room and bedroom.

Our sister property is the property which has 1 bedroom or 2 bedroom suites as designated in their room description type. This is why we always champion guests calling a property direct to make sure the room type that is booked is the one a guest actually wants---or as on our website if booking thru a different channel it is best to call the property to follow up to make sure that the room booked is the one that you did desire.

Unfortunately we can only go by the room code that is booked when it comes over on the reservation so that would be the room type a guest would have at check in. I am sorry that your stay was not as you expected but I would be happy to make reservations for your next stay in a 1 or 2 bedroom suite at our sister property.

We loved this hotel mostly because of the staff, they really made you feel welcome and were very helpful about where to eat and things to do. The hotel was very very clean which is important to me. We had an inside room, they are very small but comfortable. We spent a lot of time on the rocking chairs in the front of the hotel. The beach view is great, and the pool is nice too. We were disappointed in the beach cleanliness, which is not the hotels fault, its public. I would stay here again just because of the staff.

Room Tip: Inside rooms are ok short walk to a view
