Recent guest reviews

Nice people over all , the room was very clean except the bathroom had some hair on the floor ...

Friendly Staff ,clean hotel, beautiful view. Easy access to beach.

Booked the hotel for business purposes and a 4 night stay based on the price and photos of the rooms and facility. We arrived to find a hotel under construction and a room that was nothing like the picture on the website that I purchased the room. The construction workers were staying in the hotel and did not abide by the No Smoking policy at all and we moved from one floor to the next to get away from the smoke. Would not recommend to anyone and will never stay there again!

This is our second time staying there and I really don't have anything bad to say. Good breakfast great beach view. Good location to shops and restaurants.

Brought 5 grandchildren to the outer banks. Look for oceanfront hotel with breakfast on Internet. The food bar was great, the pool was great, access to the beach. When changed mind about room, staff was great and quick to assist. Then when grandchildren were having such a great time and wanted to stay another night. Staff again quickly assisted us. Your staff are all great!

OK. Only 1elevator. Outside beach access doors not always locked.

We stay for a day. It's nice ocean view. For the price it's reasonable.

The hotel is not very clean inside - hallways are shabby. Rooms so - so. Beds comfortable. Great location.

We stayed for two nights and the room was comfortable, the staff was polit, not overly friendly or talkative. hotel is dated having been built in the mid 1960's when I lived there. they have remodeled and it is nice in a great area. They serve continental breakfast early mornings but there are other restaurants and shopping a walk away.

Checked in at 8pm. Dirty linen from room on floor in corridor. Bad impression. Hallway carpet very dingy and dirty. Room was decent. Door lock to balcony not working. Did not leave any valuables in room except clothes. Went out to balcony during the night to listen to the waves but had to go back inside due to getting wet from the floor above and also did not want to smell of smoke as the room next door was having a bbq on the balcony, in a hotel with no sprinklers. Breakfast was decent. Overall not worth $279 a night. Place is poorly maintained.

Room was clean and quiet at night. Great view of the beach and ocean. Continental breakfast included eggs, bacon and sausage. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great Stay.

good location, right on the beach. close to walmart.

The cleanliness of the hotel was a major issue for the price. Curtains smelled like dog and the shower head was dirty. Looked like only basic cleaning had been done in years. We arrived at 3 to check in and there was hotel staff all in the hallway. You would think that 4 hours is ample time for rooms to be cleaned considering check out is at 11. We were also intruded on twice right after we arrived. The maid let herself in and then realized she had the wrong room and the maintenance guy was stopped by the security latch only to discover that he also had the wrong room. They did have a nice free breakfast.

I stayed at the Comfort Inn during a mini vacation. It was an excellent location, with a great view, and extremely pleasant staffing who loved our dogs. The rooms were clean, however there was one dirty handtowel left in both rooms we stayed in. This being said, it wasn't enough to keep me from staying again or recommending it to others.

Room was ocean front and guests were spaced apart for privacy, no one was right beside you. It was clean and comfortable. Staff was very nice and helpful. Complimentary breakfast was good.

Loved the hotel, and the room we stayed in until 8am Monday morning when they started renovation outside our window. The workers were literally 10ft outside our window sawing and cutting. I feel like I could have been told that in advance, but other than that, the bed slept great.

The beach view was great. But, the beds were uncomfortable, lumpy and had bed bugs or sand fleas. We had several bites the next morning. Pretty pricey to get bit in the nite.

The location of the hotel was wonderful! We paid a little extra for a ground level room that opens up to the sand/beach. There was no view, but the beach was so accessible. The hotel is pet friendly - which is great - however, we were not traveling with a pet. Our room smelled like wet dog. It was overwhelming. We found three empty beer cans under one of the beds on the day we checked out. The housekeeping staff bolted the door to the beach, and we were unable to get back in when we returned from the beach. We had to walk around to the door located in the hall. When we complained about the smell and the empty beer cans, the front desk staff offered nothing. There was one employee who stood out: Wilton. He was extremely nice and very helpful. The next time we go to the outer banks, we will choose a different hotel.

The location - right on the beach - was phenomenal! The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. My best recommendation? I will recommend this hotel to any of my friends who are travelling through the area.
