We stayed four nights at the Colonial Inn in early July. (Sorry for taking so long to write a review!) My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The staff was amazing and the hotel location was great for those of us who would rather walk than drive the rental car all over. While the rooms weren't fancy, they were clean. Our room faced that dunes and we really enjoyed sitting in the adirondack chairs on our "porch". Make sure to try the restaurant on the pier next to the hotel - it's really amazing!

Room Tip: We loved on room on the dunes!

When my wife and I left after Thanksgiving we booked a room for Memorial Day week. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and Kerri, the manager, is great. I would suggest this motel to anyone going to Nags Head.

My finance and I stayed just one night here in late October and we really regret that we didn't stay another night. This is not a fancy place, but it was one of the highlights of our 2 week road trip: our room was spacious (yes, a bit shabby but nice, with a nicely-equipped kitchen) right on the high dunes overlooking the ocean. We really loved walking down our own wooden staircase to the beach at sunset, just a few yards to the pier restaurant for delicious seafood and live music right on the water. There is fishing on the pier until very late at night and we enjoyed chatting with the locals while they fished. It was just beautiful. The motel is well-run and the owners very friendly. Very reasonably-priced for and ocean-front room -- I recommend this motel to those who want a bit of local color and a change from the boring chain motel experience.
