Great beachfront & pet friendly!!

The hotel had all the necessary amenties to enjoy a few days at the beach. The hotel is old and it shows its age, but the people are so warm and welcoming to guests and their pets, it makes up for it!

So-So But Right On the Beach

This Inn has very ordinary rooms with expected amenities (fridge, microwave, small coffee maker, flat screen TV), somewhat drab room decorations (one small frame on the wall which made the room feel spartan), and a bit less than enthusiastic staff. It had a comfortable bed, nice pillows, and the room was nice and clean. However, it is less expensive than close by competitors and is right on the beach. If you are looking for a (relatively) inexpensive room where you will not spend much time, it works just fine. If you are looking for a nice room on the beach, this probably won't fit. There were lots of pets around (since this is a pet friendly place), which made it fun at the beach (if you like dogs on the beach). Overall, a so-so to ordinary place to stay other than the very nice location.

Scalpers

We saw oceanfront and thought we'd have a view. We paid $500 for the room for 3 days and had to upgrade. The best she could give us was a side ocean view. Had to pay an additional $270 for 3 days. The room was clean enough but the next day housekeeping didn't even rinse the sand from the tub. The drain was slow so I guess they didn't want to wait. No roaches in the hotel (that we saw), but many outside although I think the Outer Banks have many there. My daughter and I had a few nice days, but we paid $2100 for a week in Myrtle Beach for a 3bed 3bath ocean front condo with a large clean outside pool, a small indoor pool, lazy river and a 10 person outside hot tub. Large balcony the width of the condo. So you can do the math. $2100 for a week for a condo that slept 8-10 with all those amenities or 3 days, barely a view, for $800. Go to MB instead. Plus cost us $7.75 for a small dipped cone at the local dairy queen in Kill Devil Hills. Are you kidding?

Confortable and clean.

I loved the personnel at this hotel, everybody was nice and helpful and always with a smile, very professional. I couldn't ask for a better customer service. Although maybe the rooms are dated, the second floor has big rooms, nice kitchen (no stove) but has a space for eating, and overall it was very confortable. When you go to the beach you practically want a place to crash after a day involving outdoors activities, so this is a perfect place for that. Other hotels had a bigger price tag, and I do not mind the lack of newer furniture or flat tv., but I do appreciate the kindness and lovely attitude everybody there had for me and my boyfriend. Very conviniently located, near all the highlights of the Outer Banks, light houses, Wright Brothers Museum, Piers, many restaurants and attractions near by.

great grills weekend!

For the most part evening was great. We didn't spend allot of time in the room but it was clean. I love how close it is to the water. The morning breakfast could have been better maybe some meat for protein.

My wife and I were looking for a place on the beach at a reasonable price. John Yancey had it all. Comfy Room and clean. No complaints. Next time we need one of the rooms that face the ocean.

Fun time at the beach

We only stopped off at the hotel to sleep the rest of the time we were on the sand. This hotel is right on the water.
