We have been going to the Outer Banks for more than 20 years and usually stay a single night in a motel before our rented house is available. Until we found Colonial Inn, we were very disappointed with the places we have stayed. Colonial Inn is easy to book with very pleasant staff and it is definitely pet friendly! Nice clean rooms and convenient to get to. The price is the best we have found. We will definitely be staying there again!

Room Tip: Book Early, they fill up fast!

This was a 3rd rate motel - not updated in a long time, leaking shower, not very clean.
Had a great location right on the beach, but not much more.

Top of the dune has q good location, but rooms are small, dirty, and had ants & small flies. Pool was oily. Beach was great. We spoke to management about bugs, they sprayed but hit didnt really work. We had been required to prepay 50% for 4 nights. Our bad. Don't make the same mistake.

Kerri, the manager is GREAT!! She was wonderful in helping up set up rooms for our group. We were traveling on motorcycles and she made us feel right at home! The coffee there is delicious! We really enjoyed our stay and will make a return trip there for sure!!

You just can't beat the Colonial Inn in Nags Head, if you're looking for nice clean rooms, great pool, convenient location (right next to the Nags Head Pier), and top notch Customer Service!
We've tried staying in the big homes, with dozens of family members.... and this year we happily decided to return to the Colonial Inn! We have our privacy, and we're treated like GOLD!! Kerri is amazing!
Very HIGHLY recommended!

My wife and I had a great time. The rooms were nice, clean and the staff was terrific. The lady that runs the Colonial (Keri) was/is one of the nicest people we have ever met. We have already made reservation for another trip later this summer.
