Comfort Inn On The Ocean
Ranked #12 of 18 Hotels in Kill Devil Hills
Reviewed 6 November 2013

After staying at this hotel a couple of times before, we were excited to go back. When we were there the last time , the manager told us to call her the next time we were coming back and she would help us out with our reservation. Unfortunately the staff had changed some when I did call, and weren't as pleasing as the last few times we had stayed, because of the rate I had. It's a nice hotel, and most of the staff there are friendly. It was a pleasure to see Sheena at the front desk as she always had a smile on her face, and nice conversation. She also gave us a great room last time. Terry was another friendly one from Housekeeping. These two always looked like they loved their job. They still have a great breakfast, and it's in a location where you can just go out and walk, with a lot of restaurants around.
On the down side, I had to let the water run for 10 mins, before it got warm and it didn't last for two showers without getting cold again., then it wouldn't drain . Even though it's a non smoking hotel, the smell of smoke coming from the front of the hotel was horrible at times, with people on the balconies and people smoking in front of the hotel. We were so disappointed in our stay that we left 4 days early and went to Virginia beach, where we had no problem getting a ocean front room.

It has been a while since I have visited this hotel. I was initially attracted by the favorable "off-season" rate, but shocked at the wonderful renovations. It is an older hotel, but not "period," as are some, with tiny rooms and bathrooms, on this beach. Room sizes and bathroom sizes are quite adequate, and up-dated to please. .The outdoor pool, closed for the season during this visit, and surrounding area is large, inviting, and well maintained. The beach-side entry must navigate a sizable sand dune, but opens up to a wide expanse that attracts fishermen and swimmers alike. Breakfast is included, and it is well served, and tasty, if predictable. One issue persists for this hotel. The elevator does not begin at lobby level. Guests must climb stairs/negotiate a ramp to get to the elevator. The hotel recognizes this issue, and supplies a cordial young man to assist with luggage, both evenings at check-in and mornings, at check-out. There is a small exercise room. It is equipped with a treadmill, stair stepper, and weight machine in like new condition.
.

Room Tip: The property has a "floor" of below dune (dune view) rooms. I have stayed in one of them...

Thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed our hotel and your stay! Our entire staff works very hard to make sure our facility is welcoming and comfortable for our guests. We are very glad to hear that this mark was met with you. As for the elevator, this winter we will be eliminating the need to use the ramps to access the rooms. We hope you will be pleasantly delighted the next time you stay with us. Thank you again for your comments. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Hotel was fairly priced for off season rates. It is right on the beach which made the location great. The beach was beautiful and a nice boardwalk made it easy to get to. Everyone has to climb a steep ramp or climb a flight of stairs to reach the first floor. The staff was great and will help you get your luggage up to the elevator or first floor rooms if needed. The rooms were large and updated nicely. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean enough for the time you actually spend in them. The bathroom was small but, stocked well. We had a oceanfront , first floor room with a patio. The sounds of the waves and the smell of the salt air was wonderful. The first floor rooms view of the ocean is blocked by the dunes but, is landscaped nicely and is worth it not to have to come and go through the hotel. You have your own private door to the outside. The breakfast was average for these hotels. There was a small bar on the main floor that also served a small menu for room service. The pool was very nice,but we spent more time on the beach.Close to shopping and plenty of activities. Only one hour or less south to remote areas of the Outer Banks. Great laundry facilities.

Room Tip: If you want a view get upper floors. Elevator is slow though. If you want to come and go to the beac...

This is an older hotel, no getting around that. BUT-it is on the beach, the views are astonishing and you can wake up in the morning, hear the waves, and see the sunrise over the Atlantic. We were very pleased with our room and the price. Very nice beds, clean room, great hot breakfast. The hotel has a friendly staff, sweet and solicitous, we were greeted every time we came in the front door and every time we left.
The hotel building was obviously constructed first and the enormous, dramatic lobby, bar and breakfast area were added later. There is an elevator up to the rooms. Let the nice young man help you get your bags up the ramp-give him a tip :)
And then walk into your room, open the curtains and look outside. Go outside, sit on that private balcony!

Room Tip: Ask for an Oceanside room. Why would you stay on the side NOT overlooking the Atlantic Ocean?

Thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed your stay. We agree with you that the best sound in the world is the waves meeting the shore. The view alone is amazing, but the sound just completes it. Thank you also for letting our staff assist you with the ramp. We know it is steep, but soon will be remedied. We hope to see you on your next visit to The Outer Banks!

we got an on-line deal for the room so the price was very right. wish we had been able to get one of the rooms facing the ocean but our room was complete and very nice. room was very clean with nice amenities. there was breakfast service because it was the off season but they offer a free breakfast at a restaurant within walking distance.

Room Tip: ask for ocean facing room when you book

This was second stay at the Comfort Inn in the last couple of years. I found it to be quite comfortable and clean as before. The price for a oceanfront room was reasonable. The central location makes it nice for shopping and visiting the different attractions in the Outer Banks. The breakfast that was provided in the morning was very good to start your day off. The staff was wonderful from the time I made my reservation until I checked out. When I make a return trip to this area the Comfort Inn will be the first place I call.

Room Tip: Always get a oceanfront room !!

Our stay at the Comfort Inn was the best. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and well kept. We started off thinking our vacation would last a couple, maybe three days, but we ended up staying 5 nights and 4 days. We originally had a room that did not face the ocean. After a couple of days we asked if they had in ocean view rooms available. The staff found us a room immediately and we moved to the 4th floor - ocean view. What an amazing sight watching the sun come up. Have not one complaint. Our stay was great! Recommend the Comfort Inn to anyone.
