"Bates Motel" At The Beach!

Hotel appearance is run down and unsafe. Hotel room provided in separate building and the front door remained unlocked for anyone to enter. Door in room did not have a chain lock for added security. Overall experience: hotel poorly kept and front staff rude (Manager is Linda) when asking to at least cancel reservation for the following night. I attended a LARGE event in Kitty Hawk and warned everyone I spoke to of the poor accomodations and staff. I DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!

Nice Place for a night

the hotel/room stay was adequate but very nice location. Other than location and breakfast support staff, I have nothing positive nor negative to add. The breakfast staff was friendly, attentive and responsive to patrons needs. for a limited stay, I will recommend this location based on the rate we paid.

Rest & Relax

This hotel was nicely situated right on the beach and was very relaxing to say the least. It was quiet and family friendly. The complimentary breakfast was a nice addition to our stay!

Ok stay

I would have to say that the beds are a bit hard and the little pillows are just not enough. Breakfast needs a bit more to give and more room to sit. I liked the location but would have rather been in a room on the beach instead of looking at buildings around me.

John Yancey Oceanfront Inn

At check in they gave us the wrong room number , & both rooms were upstairs in different buildings . That was some extra exercise we didn't need lol . Besides that everything went well , & We would consider staying there again .

Wonderful location

We spend one night on Labor Day weekend at the hotel and the sunrise was magnificent. The staff was very friendly showing us where to visit and all that . The facility was out dated but the prime location is worth the money I paid. The restaurant across the street was the best place for sea food.
