“Out of season confort”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

A week ago mwife and I spent 4 great nights, taking advantage of a special they were running, 4 for 3. we asked for and received an ocean front room with king and couch. The room was clean and confortable with a great view up and down the beach and of cource the ocean. But what impressed me and as I see others was the staff. Yes they have a job to do but they take pride in what they do and seem to enjoy it, which helps one enjoy their stay. Remember we visted during their end of the season period, not much open, they knew and gave us directions and suggestions as to places to visit being our first time.. My only suggestion is that if one wants a room especially in season, book now as we are going to. The hotel is so close to the beach you could just about fall out of bed and find yourself on the beach. The breakfast is just to get you going, the sweet potato biscuits and pastries were good, but if I were to suggest they add a few additional items to go along with their great coffee and Mis sheril.

I was just at the Inn on October 27th 2013. This was my second stay. This is a superior Inn to stay with. The rooms are super clean and most comfortable...but what really impressed me was the staff. The clerks were great to deal with. I was there for a wedding in South Nags Head and needed an early check in...they went out of their way to see that i got into the room early, and everything was perfect. But here is what really impressed me...after checking in , I forgot my credit card, leaving it at the front desk...I went about my business for a few hours and when i came back into the lobby the clerk called me over and handed me my card!! I had not even missed it, Anyways the two ladies had secured the card and returned it as soon as i walked in...I couldnt thank them enough. HONEST PEOPLE!!. In todays society you would like to think this would be the norm but unfortunately it's not alot of the time. Thanks TY and BREE for being such great people. I will always stay with you guys when im in the OBX!!

We spent 5 nights at the Nags Head Inn in September 2013. We had a 5th floor ocean view room that I would definitely recommend. The view as you open your door and see the ocean out a wall of windows is just spectacular. The room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. We loved being able to open the window and hear the ocean. It has a balcony but be warned the balcony is very small. We had no problems with wifi. The staff was wonderful and everyone from the front desk to the maids greeted us each time they saw us. It is an older hotel, but fairly well kept up. The location is convenient to Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, and Roanoke Island. The one negative is the breakfast. They have sweet potato biscuits and pastries. That's it. While the biscuits are good, after two days we went in search of breakfast elsewhere. Breakfast aside, I would definitely recommend the Nags Head Inn.

Meh, nothing exciting here. The beach proximity is nice; the facility is basic. It is a bit threadbare and could use a little update. Staff are cheerful and helpful. Nags Head is home to many shops and has a great many rental options: bikes, sup, surf boards, etc. Restaurants are convenient and nearby. The noise from small refrigerators is a pet peeve of mine, I'm sure others appreciate the convenience.

The bed was comfortable, the sheets soft, able to open the window to feel the ocean breeze. The beach was close, easy to get to, and a nice beach. The waves were fun. The breakfast they provided wasn't up to par for us so we went elsewhere. The people that run the hotel were all very nice. We would stay again if we were to go back.

Room Tip: Get as high up as you can & away from the indoor pool.

I was very pleased with my stay at the NagsHead Inn. We were there from 9/25 to 9/29/13 for my nephew's wedding. From the time we checked in to the time we checked out the staff was very friendly every time you walked through the front door. They were also helpful bringing up a roll away bed at 12:00 midnight with no problem. The rooms were clean and we stayed street side since we weren't going to be in the room that much we thought we would save some money by not staying on the ocean side. I would go back and stay at that place anytime. The only thing is I think you need to replace the double beds with queen size beds because when people are use to sleeping in queen sizes the double is to small. Think about changing that one thing. Oh and the bathroom too need redone to small. It was hard getting ready with 3 in the room trying to do your hair. It just needs a little rearranging. Otherwise loved staying there. I would highly recommend it very much! :)

Room was very nice, ocean view was beautiful, beach was great!!! my only comment would be to stay as high up as you can to get a better beach view....
We didn't need the staff at all, only went thru the lobby on our check-in and our check-out as our room was at the end of the hall by the steps which was extremely conveinent!! down a couple flights of steps to our car to get our beach chairs and other stuff out and right to the beach access!! The cleaning staff were very good at seeing when you left to get to your room right away! I would stay here again!!! Thanks for the memories Nags Head!!!
