1st, the staff was very kind & curteous. We arrived early & they let us use the pool while we waited for our room to be ready. The pool area was very nice, appeared to be clean & well kept. The cons would include that there are 3 floors & no elevator...not even a dumb waiter for luggage. Also, our...

The staff were overall beyond helpful, they were just amazingly nice and welcoming. Everything was clean and neat to us. I enjoyed my stay there and honestly I would choose to go here over anywhere else.

I enjoyed my stay, the staff were very helpful and courteous. The rooms are very comfortable. It was nice to be near so many of the attractions and not need to drive far to get to any of them. Our room was well equipped with mini fridge and microwave. Vending machines down the hall AND guest laundry was well appreciated....

This was al ast minute decision to head to the beach with a friend. We got the hotel on Priceline ($146 per night, Friday and Saturday) and was a little worried about the wide range of reviews. Turned out the place was fine - great pool, good location (2 blocks to beach), free basic/continental breakfast and easy parking. We were...

I appreciate your feedback. We don't have an elevator and with limited rooms on the first floor we try to accommodate those that need the first floor as much as possible. I apologize this wasn't the case for you. Our staff typically provides excellent service as noted in other reviews so I also apologize for the atypical situation you encountered....

The staff were beyond helpful! The room and lobby area was clean. Only draw back..no elevator, but we made it! We attended a wedding on the beach and the Inn provided us with a golf car ride to and from the wedding.

My family requested a roll away bed for our stay and we were provided one, however there were no blankets brought with it. We went to the customer service desk and they said they didn't have any blankets. Rooms and decor were dated and had a musty smell. Our room had quite a few ants as well. Pool was clean...

Not having blankets is certainly not what I am sure you wanted to hear. I do apologize as we typically have plenty of blankets on hand. I was made aware of this situation and we have ordered more so that we have a much higher inventory. We also have replaced all of our wall units which are designed for beach...

If you could give half points I would say 3.5 but I have given 4 due to the staff here who were very nice and really couldn't do enough for guests. Ideally located just 5min walk to beach. They even have a shuttle to take you there if you are lazy. Rooms are a wee bit dated and rough round...

This hotel really needs an update. The furniture and carpeting are very old and need replaced. We stayed one night to avoid the bridge traffic on Saturday. The cost per night is high for what you get.

Joshua R, General Manager at Outer Banks Inn, responded to this review

The owner purchased the property in 2012 and replaced the sitting chairs, beds, armoires, sinks, tile, and carpet. The activity tables, end tables, and dressers have not yet been replaced and are slightly dated. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and certainly hope you enjoyed your time in the OBX.
