“Older and in need of update”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

The outer banks beach club I is an older building that should have an update. The paint around the door handle of our unit was totally worn off. In quite a few areas the wallpaper was lifting. Although old it was clean (other than the windows) and that is always totally appreciated.

We had ocean view which was awesome (once I cleaned the windows myself, to be able to see through them). It was also lacking in kitchen utensils but I do prefer to cook and most people might not.

If you need anything call before 5p.m. when the office is open. I tried calling a couple of times and no one answered. Read afterwards that the office is not open after 5p.m.

We stayed in room 7 B of OBBC2. If you are looking for granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, this is not the place for you. But if you are looking for a clean, roomy 2 bed condo, this is a good value. Cabinets & counters in kitchen are dated, but both bathrooms seemed nicely updated with a jacuzzi tub in one. The only downside is no washer and dryer in the unit. They are located under the building, close to our unit. However, it was $3.50 to wash & dry one load. I would reccommend you bring quarters & detergent with you if you plan on doing wash, since the coin changer and detergent for sale is at the main office. Also, they charge you for internet. I read it was $17/ day but actually there was a discount code & a weekly rate so it cost us $29 for the week. Check out procedure was a little ridiculous...you need to strip beds & put used linens and towels in a bag and leave near front door. You had to wash dishes & put away. You also had to bring all the trash to the dumpster.also $25 fee if oven is not clean. Putting aside these negatives, it was a good value....we paid $99 for a clean, roomy 2 bed/2bath condo. Also, we booked this room thru hoels.com which said we were staying at OBBC1 and we actually ended up in OBBC2.

The room was a little dated, but over all they were nice comfortable rooms. We originally purchased food to fix in the kitchen of the room (we ate out every meal instead), however after going over the owners book,(this is one of our time share properties.) we discovered they charge for just about everything, from ice to internet service to a cleaning fee if you fail to clean out the oven when you use it. We had to report immediately that the faucet in the kitchen leaked, for fear they would charge us for it. And that was our running joke all weekend. Everything we did we joked about being charged for it. The staff was friendly and helpful. We did have to pull our bedding and any and all towels/rags we may have used during our stay and put them in a laundry bag by the door when we left to check out. Isn't that what maid service is for?? Sadly, we decided it isn't a place we want to stay again.

We stayed here between Christmas and New Year. Had a three bedroom ocean front (unit 20 PH). Awesome views. Great central location to KDH Kitty Hawk and Nags Head area. Relatives came over for an evening meal cooked in the fantastically equipped kitchen. Great winter rates and AARP discount makes it even better.

We only stayed here one night as a stop on our way to Florida. Our suite was perfect for our family of 5. There was a queen bed in the master bedroom with a jacuzzi in the master bath. The other bedroom had two twin beds. There was also a kitchen, dining room and living room. We all had plenty of room and would have used the indoor pool for the resort too if we hadn't been so tired. Local restaurants offered resort guests discounts when showing your key. Only two negatives I found where there was a list of check out instructions in the room but the necessary items for completing the checklist were not available in our room. Also when I tried to call to make reservations, I was treated very rudely and was told don't bother calling because they only take multiple night reservations. I quoted information from their website and the person I spoke to said "don't believe what you read. Our website doesn't really say anything about our resort. " Thankfully the service we had in person was much better. We would definitely stay here again in the future.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

We hadn't been to the OBX in 50 years so we traded to see what had changed. Few people at the Beach CLub II but we were placed on the fourth floor ! Place has no elevator, and I asked for a lower unit but was told they had no other openings. No washer dryer in the unit as the material stated, no WI-FI in the units, you have to go to club house if you bring your laptop. There was a lift at each unit for luggage, but you have to call for someone to operate it.

The indoor pool was nice and the hot tub was very hot. I guess someone checks and maintaines the pools but didn't observe that happening. The lightning on the four flights of steps was poor on some levels, but you need to use the hand rails. I asked again about being moved and was told in no uncertain terms, what I got is all I will get. I called RCI, but little they could do. I told them there was no washer dryers and they said they will change the letters.

They have this property listed as Gold Crown, but it is not. Doubt we will return, always read the reviews before making vacation decisions. No flat screens, just regular TV's, but the kitchens are nice and the combined living area is nice for sitting and relaxing.

Room Tip: No elevators, so bring your climbing shoes.

Thank you for your review of our resort. We use them to help improve our ability to offer the best possible vacation experience. When visiting our resort through RCI please give us a call in advance so that we may answer any questions concerning your unit or it's proximity to the ocean. All Friday check ins in OBBC 2 are located on the opposite side of the street from the ocean near the clubhouse. These two bedroom units do not have elevators, however elevators to service these units have been approved for early 2014. Saturday and Sunday check in's are located on the ocean side of the street and all have elevator service. We have an ongoing renovation program and are constantly upgrading our resort. We sincerely hope that you will choose to stay with us again.

stayed in 3 bedroom unit 9c at ocean club1. Not a ocean view but view of pool.. some upgrades new tv, bathrooms with more. ,upgrades the plan. Grounds and pools well taken care of. We did have a issue with palmietto bugs and called maintenance immediately and they exterminated.Beach access stairs very difficult if you have mobility problems. They have built platforms where you can sit and enjoy the beach.Very very nice. the condos a little dated, but lots of room.Location in the heart of it. Cape hatteras, wright bros , jockey ridge , wild horses, ocaroke, roan.ock island all within easy drive. Many excellent places to get your seafood fix. we exchanged last wk of oct and had 60 to 70 degree weather.Off season but ideal time to plan your trip. No wait, time and room to enjoy the sights.
