“Uncomfortable”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

The biggest problem was the sheet looks not clean, especially the blanket and the sheet was too thin. Also, I found a hair under the sheet. The bathroom looks just OK. Breakfast was good and the location is good. However, my only concern about the quality of a hotel is the cleanness of the sheet and the bathroom.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property during your stay on the Outer Banks. I will make sure to share your comments with our housekeeping staff. I assure you that this is not the norm for our hotel as seen by the many previous comments on our property. Our bathrooms are of a smaller size as we are the longest, continuous-running hotel on the Outer Banks. People love our charm and B&B feel because of this, but this also means that the bathrooms are not of a large size by today's standards since the original structure was built in the 40s. If you are able to visit the Outer Banks again, please contact me directly and I will be happy to make reservations for your next stay and make sure your stay is more pleasant.
Thank you--Tonia

This hotel is very nice & a great location!
Less than half a mile to Wright Brothers Memorial, right on beach, close to Corolla to see wild horses, close to hang gliding park, etc. Highly suggest!

This hotel is beautiful, with old plank floors and a fireplace in the lobby. They serve a full breakfast, tea and coffee throughout the day, and cookies and cider in the evening. Our room was up under the eaves in the back, where not so much attention had been paid to upkeep. The door appeared to have been replaced with something very cheap. The furniture was peeling. The bed was uncomfortable. The bathroom smelled a little bit like sewer. However, it was a walk over the sand dune to the beach and the desk clerk was really friendly and helpful.

We didn't really mind the "rustic" atmosphere of our room and shared balcony. Everything was clean and we did have a view of the ocean from the Adirondack chairs outside our door. My only two real complaints are that the old bed needed replacement and the bathroom repaired. With those updates, I would give a 5 for that price level.

Room Tip: Perhaps the rooms inside are an improvement on the one under the eaves. You might not get the ocean...

We appreciate your taking the time to write a review of our property for your recent stay. Though I am out of town, I will check on the mattresses in the few rooms under the eaves after my return as well as the bathroom. I am sorry that your stay was less than idyllic and am glad that our staff was friendly and helpful during your stay.

I assure you that such issues are not normal for our property, and you may have noticed we have started some of our yearly renovations as well. We do strive every year to improve things in the hotel and I will make sure to check on the items you mentioned.

If you are able to return to the Outer Banks again, we do hope that you might give us to get the 5 out of 5 marks instead of 4 out of 5....we would love to be able to impress you further. Feel free to ask for me when calling.

Thank you--Tonia

We stayed here the end of February and it was a great value for the off season. The inn faces the ocean and we had a room on the first floor , so we looked at the dunes. The walk to the beach was just 2 minutes, if that long. The clerk who checked us in was very polite and helpful with dinner suggestions. There was fresh popped popcorn and cookies. It is older and has some quaint traits- sitting area is nice. Self laundry was available. We had stayed at the other Day's inn down the road and found this one to be much nicer. The room had room for a small love seat and coffee table.

We stayed one night. We had a great ocean view room. Fast internet. Great TV. And the full breakfast in the roomy dining room area off the lobby was wonderful.

Room Tip: Room at the back of the hotel was nice and quiet.

Older motel but fairly well maintained. Room and bathroom were small. Bedding was comfortable. We enjoyed the fire place in the sitting room. Cookies and spiced cider in the afternoon and an excellent continental breakfast. Rooms have a balcony exit to the beach.

This property is older but refurbished. Stayed here two nights due to working in the area. Upon arrival I noticed my room had an outside door and there were sme guys hanging around in the parking lot, and as a woman traveling alone I didn't feel safe. I asked the front desk to move me and she was very helpful and let me check out the room first. It was smaller but down the main hall and I felt more comfortable there. I like the afternoon cider and cookies, as well as the breakfast. Wished they had more fresh fruit and healthy choices. I love that you can use the YMCA day pass. i would stay here agin if I get the same good rate.

Room Tip: A few oceanfront rooms
