“Needs Work (but okay for a overnighter)”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Driving home from Myrtle Beach to Canada decided to stop over in OBX for a night. Booked via a last minute website and got room for $35. When we got there the outside looked a little rough around the edges and at check-in asked for a upgrade to King Size room and got it for an extra $13. There is a sign in the lobby saying they are doing renos and making improvements (which is good because the hotel does look like it needs it).

The room was okay, but needed work in the bathroom. Had a leaky drain on the bathroom sink and we needed to put the ice bucket under to catch the dripping. The mini-fridge had broken legs and leaned forward so that the door rubbed on the floor. The bed was king size and no too bad but is probably due for replacement soon. They give you 4 pillows (two firm and two medium support) and they were awesome. The jacuzzi tub in the room worked fine. The windows of the room were so dirty on the outside you could barely see out of them.

Free hot breakfast was nothing to write home about. The breakfast area needed a good cleaning (as did the rest of the hotel) but I guess with renos going on they are not doing much. Breakfast was waffles, bagels, muffins, no toast, coffee, scrambled eggs.

Staff was nice and very friendly, but once the renos are done and the place gets a good cleaning it should be better. I guess being on a sandbar the sand gets everyplace and carpets and such all have sand in them. But for the price it was fine for a one nighter.

THE BEST place to stay for Awesome Ocean front views and great rooms(See my pictures). 5 *s for this cool hotel.It is few yards away from Jennette's Pier, few mins away from Wright Brother's memorial, Sand Dunes, Manteo Aquarium. Planning to come back soon. Katrina was very friendly and patiently answered all our questions about the place. Morning Breakfast was good and they had many options. We are definitely coming back and staying here.

Room Tip: Odd Numbered rooms are ocean front i guess. Just an observation in our floor but not 100 % sure.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff was so pleasant and the room was perfect. I had an oceanfront room with a fantastic view. I get away once in a while to relax and this was a perfect getaway and I WILL be back. Thanks again for making my R&R a positive experience.

Room Tip: Higher floors with an ocean view are so tranquil and peaceful. Virtual paradise.

I enjoy duck hunting and have stayed here several times over the past 6-7 years. I have never had a bad reception or overall stay. The staff is extremely friendly and the rooms are super clean. You can not beat the rates!!! The location is great and views are awesome. And the friendliness extends to everyone from maintenance to the housecleaning. I have their number stored in the phone to save time when I plan a trip. Fresh baked cookies are delicious. Thanks again!

Room Tip: All the rooms are spacious and the oceanfront rooms have an awesome view!

At first I was concerned with the renovations, but the staff more than compensated for the inconveience. The view from room 507 was completely uninterupted. The sunsrise was dramatic and photogenic! Quiet rooms and comfy beds!

Room Tip: Oceanside is worth the extra cost! Stop by the visitors center to get area discounts, I save over $4...

I stayed in this hotel the weekend of 11/28/13. I do not typically select Comfort Inns, but during this trip there few hotels available and I was at the mercy of family members. My headline says it all: While this hotel offers spectacular views from its ocean-front rooms and dining hall deck, the hotel itself is noticeably unclean and worn. I agree with many of the other reviewers is that one goes to this hotel for its beach-front convenience, not its comfort or cleanliness.

This hotel is dated and unmaintained cheaply, leaving me (and probably many other guests) with the impression that customer comfort is low on the list of priorities. From the dated entry doors, elevators, lobby, carpeting, bathrooms, etc., this place is trapped in a time warp.

My recommendation for future travel to Nags Head is to rent a flat or a house during your stay as opposed to selecting from the handful of substandard or overpriced hotels in Nags Head. The housing stock out numbers the hotels 4/1.

Room Tip: Shop around before selecting this place.

Nice location. Hotel is OK nothing fantastic. Get a room on the ocean side for views. The other side has views of the restaurant roof. But it does have balconies looking at it. But you don't go there to stay in the room. Too much to see.
