Nice stay

It was a decent stay for the money. Free wifi, located right on the beach, free breakfast...My main issue was being able to hear people outside the room and through the connecting door very well. People were loud. But we did have a good time nonetheless.

One night stay

The rooms are extremely outdated. Extremely . The bathroom was tiny and the layout/ decor of the room was very odd . The doors to the rooms are very thin, almost like bedroom doors so you can hear EVERYTHING. I am just happy I only had to stay here for one night.

family summer vacation

We booked very late so we were fortunate to have a first floor room, which was nice. Room was clean and very up-to date and being right next to the beach was awesome. Sleep was horrid for my wife and I, bed was uncomfortable for the both of us, and the pillows were the size of throw pillows, which was weird. at check-out I wish the woman at the front desk would of have at least had a little smile on her face, but she did go out of her way to get me a cup of coffee. Overall, great one night stay and will book again if needed

Quick Trip

My girlfriend and I went for a weekend. We are very quiet people, and the first night we were called in our room, and the lady at the front desk said we got a noise complaint, and that if we had gotten another, we would have to leave. It was completely foreign to me. Never go again.

Nags Head Classic Softball Tournament

Stayed here for my daughters softball tournament and we really enjoyed ourselves. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very nice. The breakfast was decent, we liked the waffle maker. The price couldn't be beat for the location. Her team mates stayed at another hotel that was more expensive and they all hated it. I am glad we chose the John Yancey and we will definitely stay here again if we come back. If I were to complain about anything it would be the dog barking in the room above us. However, it was only the first night and we never heard it after that.

Horrid Place for the money

My stay at the John Yancey Inn was a disappointment to say the least. I would've hesitated to stay in this room as a teenager much less as a adult. The carpet was the absolute dirtiest I've ever seen. I would not recommend this to anyone even at half the price.
