“good location good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

We stayed at the Shutters for the Flying Pirate HM weekend. There are two.building, the tower and the main two story building. The room.we stayed in faced the parking lot in the two story building. We were on the second floor. The hotel is older but updated and clean. The rooms are small but had two queen beds and were comfortable. The hotel has great and easy access to the beach. The lobby area was clean and nicely decorated. The hotel offers a continental breakfast which was pretty good. We only used it once because we had to wake early for the races. The front desk clerk offered us breakfast food the night before so we can take to our room. The hotel staff in general were very friendly. The only thing to watch for is ask for a second story room. There are no elevators in the part of the hotel we stayed in but its worth hauling your luggage up. The floors are father thin and you can hear below. The guest below came to our room asking us to not make so.much noise. I'm not a stomper when I walk so the floors must be thin. I.tried to.tiptoe around after that which was not good. If you want to stay in a conveniently located hotel that is comfortable and will break the bank this is it!

Room Tip: 2nd floor in mIn building.

This a charming hotel...I called the day before we planned our trip and Sandy was so kind and helpful to find us a room...we could not be happier on the first floor facing the dunes ocean side. It is only a few short steps to the covered cabana where we enjoy gazing out into the ocean and watching the dolphin frolicking around. After arriving, again Sandy was extremely considerate telling us about restaurants...the room is clean, comfortable, and quite affordable.

This was our second stay at Shutters on the Banks. The location is hard to beat -- right on the beach with a nice pavilion overlooking the beach, places to shower off and/or rinse off your feet, close to a lot of restaurants and very close to the Wright Brothers Memorial. The room was not fancy, but perfectly comfortable and roomy. The price is hard to beat! Staff is very friendly, but my one disappointment was that they would not allow us to slip our checkout time even a few minutes. As I was running a half marathon the morning of check out, that meant that I had to skip the after party, rush back to the hotel to take a quick shower and pack up, rather spoiling the after-race mood. I would have appreciated a half hour window... Other than that, it was fine.

We love staying at this local hotel. The staff always is super friendly and always go out of their way to take care of you. The prices are great and the hotel is clean. This is always our home away from home for a quick trip to the beach. Love the location and the value!

Traveled to OBX on business in the storm Tuesday night and stayed at Shutters. Had oceanfront room and was worried about drafts from 50-60 mph winds. Need not have worried, door sealed tight and I enjoyed the stay in very comfortable, newly remodeled room. Price was great for oceanfront and morning dawned windy but sunny. Got a chance to see Sunrise suite next day, might be best room on OBX. if you're looking to celebrate an occasion you need to see this glass fronted suite.

Room Tip: Great place in bad weather, indoor pool gives kids something to do.

Updated hotel, new bedding/mattresses/granite vanities. Solid continental breakfast to boot. The dune view room is very near the ocean and gives you a glimpse of ocean as well. Lovely outdoor sitting areas. I wold definitely recommend this hotel.

One of the days our family stayed an 8yr old boy went missing. The entire staff put everything on hold to help search for the missing child. It affected everyone in the hotel. The staff was so kind and friendly. They moved my dad to a room closer to ours without hesitation. The beach was literally in the back yard. The main strip was a block from the hotel and there were hundreds of shops, restaurants, and activities a short distance away. The rooms were clean. The price was cheap compared to the quality of the room. Did I mention how friendly and caring the staff was? We highly recommend this location and will definitely be back!
