Stayed at this hotel a couple nights ago. Got a parking lot view even though we asked for a quieter room. and the put someone in the room right next to us when most of the hotel was empty. the guy listened to tv (loudly) til about 11. Plus I was healing some guys conversing loudly outside our room in...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the noise near your room and the light that come through the shutters. I'm not sure there is much I can do about those but will be sure to look into expanding yogurt options. We hope that you will come back in...

We stayed for the OBX race weekend (not room 221) as it was our first time in OBX. It was a nice little hotel, the front desk staff was very accommodating to runner's schedule. My family enjoyed the easy access to the beach and the indoor pool. The only downside, the breakfast could have been better supplied. I'm sure part...

We've been fortunate to visit the OBX on a number occasions over the last few years. For our latest visit we decided not to hire a home, or stay in a 'chain' hotel. Shutters on the Banks had reasonable reviews so, despite the slightly higher than average cost at this time of the year, we opted for a 2 night...

We were first given a room in the main bldg and walked in to a horrible odor. Even my husband who NEVER complains about anything said there was no way he could stay there. When I went to the front desk the clerk did not want to move us even though the hotel was near empty. Instead, she said she...

I'm so sorry about your experience at our property, we very rarely have rooms with such bad odors as you describe, but with that being said it is the beach and lots of damp towels and bathing suits can be thrown around the rooms. I completely understand your concern about the layout of the tower rooms/restrooms, but am excited to...

A very nice hotel located in a great place on the beach. Staff are friendly and rooms are nicely appointed. The location is great, right on the beach, and close to many nearby restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. I would recommend for couples or families. I stayed just outside of the high season, so the hotel was reasonably priced.

Only spent one night here. There were cockroaches every where outside (we arrived when it was dark and didn't notice them until we went out a bit later). One got in our room, it was huge and took me ages chasing it around to catch it. The breakfast was OK although they had minimal seating in the breakfast area.

Room was nice & clean. The continental breakfast was good, nice variety. When walking to the beach, once you crested the dunes, there was a very nice view. We stayed for 2/3 nights. Enjoyed the iced citrus water in the Lobby. We were here early Sept. 2014

Very nice hotel. No amenities but close enough to stores if you want a bottle of wine. Beautiful ocean view from the deck. request a high floor 3rd or 4th because from floor 1 and 2 you cannot see the beach. Do not stay in the smaller building - make sure you are staying in the "tower". A bit overpriced...

Have stayed here three times, all visits were great. Clean rooms, nice breakfast, pleasant staff and wonderful location. Beach access is easy. Did not use the pool, but it was full of kids who appeared to be having a great time. Inside pool a big plus on stormy days. Highly recommend.
