It was a great view of the ocean. Humidity was terrible in the room if you have the balcony door open

Beaches were beautiful and not crowded. Hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. The beach was a one minute walk out the back door.

It was just peaceful and relaxing. They look to be in the process of remodeling and the room looked great with that pretty gray tile floor.

Every one was very friendly. The rooms were very nice. The bathrooms were super tiny. Everything else was great.

This place went through a recent remodeling. The beds are comfortable but smaller than a typical queen mattress. The floors are now tiled, so you can’t go barefoot on them comfortably.The bathroom remodel is a disaster. Too small and claustrophobic in the shower/toilet combo with lowered ceiling. Wasted space for vanity should have been part of bathroom. We had issues with low water pressure and taking too long for hot water. Despite a friendly staff, they didn’t seem to take responsibility for the conditions. The pool and spa were a free for all, with children playing (even snorkeling) in the hot tub. Everyone ignored that as if it were normal, though I fault the parents for letting the kids think it’s a kiddie pool. This place could be excellent if it had proper management and a better value restaurant on the premises. I’ll wait to go back if/when it gets better.

Great view. Nice hotel. Unfortunately it was under construction due to the hurricane, but they were so friendly and were accommodating. Highly recommended, and I plan to stay again this summer!

The bad...Got there and the only room available (for my reservation) had an AC water leak and the floor was wet. With no other options after driving 5 hrs to get there we had to put up with the AC noises and the noise of 2 dehumidifiers for the night. The good...the manager on duty was very gracious...apologized; and comped us for the room and upgraded us the next morning to a junior king suite at the price of the regular room for the rest of our stay. We were happy with that. The bartender L was extremely nice and helpful (my wife’s new friend). More on the bad. The maintenance staff however, was slack. Never answered our request to fix a broken bath exhaust fan (for 2 days), housekeeping didn't change our bed linens after our request to do so, never wiped down the bathroom fixtures. Four of the pool area lamp posts had burnt out bulbs as well as the chandelier in the main lobby. The hotel's support staff is lax and careless it seems. No bang for the buck here. Will not be returning there!

Nice hotel right in beach. Only problem we had was once we got settled we tried to turn on tv that didn't work, sent to call phone didn't work the solution was to move to another room or wait till morning we packed up are stuff and moved the rest if the stay was fine. Will stay there again.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The first night in the room, I called the front desk because it had a very strong fishy smell. The lady at the front desk immediately said that is because you are in the room right above the kitchen. I thought the smell will go away, but it never did during my entire stay. Before leaving the hotel I approached the manager to let her know that I would have appreciated if they had said something about the smell when I made the reservations or when I checked in. She acted like she never heard about the smell. Her answer was very unprofessional.

Overall the hotel accommodations were ok. The oceanfront view was spectacular. The service was fair to ok.

The entire hotel was under some kind of construction and maintenance. It was like sleeping at a construction site

Very relaxing stay and enjoyed the lovely balcony view of ocean. Very comfortable bed and pleasant staff.

Newly refurbished rooms and small lobby. The restaurant is quite poor. The poll is not heated, the bar was not open. But the ocean was blue and beautiful. The room's toilet wasw broken. But still, the view was fantastic even though the balcony was so small.

Staff was very friendly and responsive to our requests especially in the restaurant.

All rooms are ocean front, has microwave & refrigerator in room! Very quite rooms that are very clean! Has a great restaurant in-house! The staff is great and rooms are reasonable priced! Our stay was awesome!

I had an excellent experience from check in to check out. The staff was friendly and helpful. My meals in the restaurant were delicious and servers courteous. My drinks from the bar were on point and the girls were awesome. I loved the new look of the room. It was a fantastic if short trip. I am looking forwars to my next visit.

You really cant get closer to the ocean than this. All rooms have a great view. Easy beach and pool access. Nice bar. Comfortable room with a fridge. Really priced well through Orbitz. Everything I want when I stay at the beach. Will visit again.

Hotel staff informed no Kleenex in room. Wife with cold. Did not get Kleenex until 2nd request and hours later. Water in lobby was empty and not replenished for hours, after requests were made. Felt our rate was to much. I remember booking it fo around $210 or $220. Bill was $296. Staff said I needed to contact Expedia and I said I booked via Orbits. No sign of concern or help, just complain to Expedia. Grate location and wonderful beach. Too much $ for the service and small bathroom plus rate much higher than I remembere

The staff are friendly and go the extra mile with a smile. Our room was clean and comfortable with a great view of the beach from the balcony. We reserved the chairs & umbrella on the beach. To our surprise we also had a table under the umbrella. This was a very relaxing trip. I will definitely stay at the Inn at Pineknoll Shores again.
