Baymont Inn & Suites Kitty Hawk Outer Banks
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Kitty Hawk
Reviewed 31 October 2013

We made a quick weekend getaway in late October - my wife always wanted to see Kitty Hawk and pay homage to the Wright Brothers, so we ended up here. Truly a mix of good and bad.

The good: The location. It's right on the main drag, but only a few hundred feet to the beach, which you can easily walk to. Close to some great restaurants, too. The staff was super friendly and the building was pretty clean. Bed was very comfortable, as was the couch in the room, which also included a mini-fridge and microwave at no extra cost. Nice!

The downside: The room was a bit - not a lot, mind you - a bit worn. The toilet was installed a bit too far from the wall, so they literally carved about a 1/2 inch off the door so it would close. Not a big deal, but did make me smile. The biggest issue for us was the noise. We could hear, clearly, the rooms next door ("I was up at 4:30 and couldn't back to sleep, didn't you hear me?" and a protracted discussion about breakfast) as well as the clamor out in the hallway ("Mommy, I'm a gonna get a whole stack a pancakes."). Plenty of footsteps above us, too.

All in all, a great value and we would return again.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor to avoid the sound of footsteps overhead.

I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the hotel was. The room was very clean, the hotel was quiet, and the staff was friendly. Breakfast was also a nice surprise with plenty of selections and the food was all fresh. I plan on staying here again the next time I'm in OBX.

We came to OBX a few days after Labor day, and were looking for a B&B for one night. It turned out that some places already closed down for the season, while others insisted on a two-night booking, even though it was out an of season midweek night. The Hilton was rather expensive, for a non-ocean view room, so we ended up with the Holiday Inn Express. The advantage (and disadvantage) of the hotel is that you know exactly what you are getting, it looks and is very similar to other hotels in the same chain, so no surprises here. Check in was swift and I even received a welcome gift (an apple and a bottle of water) as a Holiday Inn rewards club member. The room was comfortable, though the AC was a bit loud. Breakfast was as expected, a few pastries, some scrambled eggs and sausages, and you can make your own pancakes using a dedicated machine, though they did not taste like the real thing. The hotel is about 200 yards from the beach, so we walked to the beach in the evening, and again the next morning, when I actually dipped in the water. The beach was surprising empty. Following the front desk's recommendation, we went to dinner at the Black Pelican, just a block away, and enjoyed in very much.

Check in was a breeze. The front desk clerk was very congenial. We arrived late afternoon and were quite hungry and the clerk directed us to a very good restaurant that serves early dinner. Rooms are just regular but clean. Breakfast selections are impressive.

We found a great deal for this HIE for a last minute July 4 week getaway. Staff was very friendly and welcoming and worked with us on every need (extra towel, linens, etc). Rooms were just fine. Nothing fancy -a little dated - but had everything we needed to have an enjoyable stay - clean and comfy. The breakfast spread was a bigger than similar hotels I have stayed at with free breakfast bars. This was a definite plus.

Hotel is a block away from the beach and you do have to cross a two lane road. We kept saying that they should have an outdoor shower installed near the entrance to the beach trail on the HIE property for people to wash the sand off their feet. We brought a ton of sand into the room. I bet they go through vacuum cleaners bags like crazy.

Tips and Suggestions:
1. There are a couple of good restaurants within walking distance. Ask the front desk where the hot spots are. We liked the Black Pelican and Hurricane Mo's were both good local seafood spots.

2. Be ready to carry your stuff to the beach. Not too far but still a haul if you have kids and a cooler and not that many arms.

3. Visit the Cape Hatteras Visitors Center. This is the go to stop to find out where you need to go, what you need to see, and how long it takes to get there.

The HIE is an older property, but it is one block from the beach and a parking area with restrooms and shower. The people at the desk--shirlene in the evening and Sarah the next morning were delightful in helping us find the best places to see and to eat. The lady in the food area, Laura was the best at helping us to know what to see and what was not worth the time. We loved the stay so much that as soon as we got home, we made reservations for our next stay there.

Rooms were clean and staff were very friendly. The hot breakfast bar was very nice. All the employees were extremely nice. Hotel is not on the beach. No views of the ocean. You walk about 200 or more yards to beach. So if you have trouble walking I would not stay here. Or if you take a lot of stuff to the beach pay extra and stay on the beach. Friday and Sat. are higher days.

Room Tip: Park in the back with your beach gear and it makes the walk shorter.
