Shutters offers a fairly inexpensive getaway with decent rooms and amenities located on the beach. I would recommend going in season when the pool and hot tub are better maintained. Shutters has had some recent renovation with some still in progress. The staff are wonderful.

Have stayed at Shutters a number of times throughout the years, averaging about one stay per year, usually in the off-season. I find the location to be convenient and the price reasonable. Our stay last week pretty much met my expectations. Our 2nd floor dune-level room had a bit of a view. It appeared to have been renovated. It was...

Every year I celebrate my birthday at OBX and this hotel has been our home away from home. It's proximity to restaurants and attractions adds to it's charm. The Outer Banks spells family for me, and this hotel has been a part of it. So, it's painful to write a bad review about them last year. We have been re-invited...

I'd suggest you vacation somewhere else next time if you are concerned about the cockroaches OUTSIDE. They are all over the OBX area and there is really nothing that can be done about it... the hotel did not deserve a cruddy rating for something completely out of their control. I've been vacationing in this area since I was a child......

We stayed here recently and we were quite pleased. The room was nice and well kept. We enjoyed being right off the beach and if you go during warm weather there are showers behind the sand dunes to rinse off before going inside. There is also a gazebo. We enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. The breakfast is heavy...
