“great little place!”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

This place has a good location at reasonable prices. We stayed for 2 nights in the motel (not private cottages which looked awesome!) and it was a good stay. The staff was nice and helpful and the place was all around very clean. I would stay there again!

We spent two nights in the Wright Cottage. It was clean and cute and close enough to the historic section that you could walk. Loved the rain shower.

We chose this hotel because it is pet friendly. This was really nice because we have an older dog we don't kennel. There was plenty of room to walk her.

My cousin was in the cottage next door and it was really cute as well. I think it was the Island Getaway. I would book this one next time only because the extra room would have been nice since it has a living room.

If you are looking for a place close to the beach in the Outer Banks and don't care how old and out of date a property is, you might like it here. There is no overnight availability of staff, no hotel phone in your room to call for help, etc. The air conditioning is a window unit that in my room blew mosquitoes and flies into the room all night. An employee of the place came to my door, unlocked it, and entered without knocking. The Tiki Bar is an empty bar with a sign over it that says, "Tiki Bar". You have to bring your own beverages and serve yourself. Why bother? WiFi connection for the room that I was in did not work. The bed spreads were old and stained. The night stand was so small I had to put my glasses on the other bed in the room. A small TV hangs off the wall. This was not a good experience.

Room Tip: The best advice I can give here is go somewhere else.

We stayed at the Wright Getaway house. It was so nice!! Definitely worth the splurge. The owners were so gracious and accomodating. There was a lovely bottle of wine included in the room. It was the perfect souvenir for us! It rained most of the time we were there so the fireplace was well used! Very cozy little cottage.

It was not peak season so we found a lot of the restaurants and shops were closed. Along with all the putt putt places on Nag's Head. That was a little disappointing but we still had a relaxing time.

Be sure to visit the Wright Brother's memorial on Kitty Hawk.

We stayed in Wright Get-A-Way guest house. Could have NOT asked for more! Great little vacation retreat, whirpool tub was a perk as well as allowing pets! The place was spotless upon arrival and will recommend to everyone!

Room Tip: Fantastic room, all the privacy and accomidations without a "hotel" feel!

The room was very clean. The only drawback... The bathroom is small and there is no hair dryer. The closet is small and there is no place to put your suitcase unless you use the closet or the twin bed that was in the room. The staff was very nice and the rates were less expensive than some of the other hotels that we had tried to get a room at. We were very happy and satisfied with our stay and it is very close to downtown area, shops and restaurants.

We stayed at the Endless Summer cottage - it was really well decorated - if you're a surfer you will definitely appreciate the decor - surfboards galore! There's a walk in shower with a huge rainshower head downstairs and another bathroom upstairs with a jacuzzi soaking tub - two bedrooms upstairs with flatscreen tvs - and another huge flatscreen downstairs. Another bonus is a huge washer/dryer, very nice! Shirley was very nice and helpful in accomodating a few changes for us and always called me back when I called her. Nags head is about 10-15 minutes away across the bridge. The waterfront in Manteo isn't far either - walking distance.....clean place that allows dogs for a fee.
