Comfort Inn South Oceanfront

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Checked in motel room was on 5th floor-the elevator to the 5th floor smelled bad, the 5th floor smelled like backed up sewage. complained to mgmt. asked for another room on front where we would have a door open on balcony, no dice, they wanted 2x what we just paid for stinky room/floor. we left this hotel after 1 night and found much better motel. There breakfast was a 0 also. Poor, Poor, service at desk. There swimming pool is to laugh at. Old run down stinky motel. Take your money and go some place else. Was truly disappointed.

Only here for a night. Location on beach is nice but it is far away (relatively speaking) from the amenities of Nags Head. Breakfast was adequate and had all of the usual Comfort Inn offerings. But check-in was very slow. Computer system seemed to be sluggish. Room was not quiet. I am not sure there was ANY sound proofing. I can't imagine what it would be like during high season. My room had a connecting door to the next room and everything could be heard through it. Could hear all of the conversation in the hallway when people walked by. I am a side sleeper with mild arthritis in my neck. The pillows were much too thick and stiff for me to sleep comfortably. The mattress was OK. I am also sensitive to light in the room. The curtains were fine for this but there was a lot of light around the door and lots of little equipment lights throughout the room (not really their fault but annoying never-the-less).

Room was not the one we booked. Was booked and paid for the "ocean view" room, but was not given that side of the building. Shower had "paint??" smears all over it, like some child finger painted all over it with permanent ink. Bathroom floor was also unclean Also, could not get Wifi to work very well. On a good note, staff were friendly and very quickly helped us fix the television which would not come on. Also the beds were comfortable, and the room was fairly quiet although it was off season. Breakfast was decent with a nice view of the ocean.

Room was quite pleasing! Common areas are showing their age. We were there late season, and common area carpets were looking like they needed cleaning. Common areas could use an update/spruce up. Staff was great and friendly at all times. Dog friendliness wasn't a problem at all. (We are not dog people.) Included breakfast was pretty average, as expected. Nutritious, and a great convenience. All I want or expect from a chain hotel.

Beautiful view of the bay and the ocean! Great location! Everything else was very disappointing! The building is shabby and needs updating. Fingerprints all over the windows. The pool could be very nice except for the scum line along the top. The bathrooms are poor. The repairs that have been done to the building were done poorly. The continental breakfast was not up to the quality I have gotten in the past at Comfort Inns. This building needs a complete makeover and new management!!!

So happy with this hotel. Location is the best, very clean room, love having the small patio, breakfast was great, employees extremely nice and friendly. Will definitely stay here again and again.

Hotel has been improved since our last visit. Great location.

Excellent location and views not to be matched on OBX.

Place was a bit older but very economical. Service was friendly. View from 7th floor was beautiful!

Great Hotel....Too expensive, have had better breakfast, great view of the ocean

The hotel was at a good location on the beach, it was super easy to find. Once we got into the hotel there was a weird smell on the second floor which I'm guessing was coming from the door leading to the beach. Over all it was a nice hotel in a nice area and I would stay there again!

Busy holliday weekend, last minute reservation. A/C malfunction with recurrent noise, asked for repair but was not done and after having a second bad night just checked out. Also complained about left over food ( bunch of crackers) under the bed from previous guest and they failed to vaccum the room as well and was untouched for the second night... Total bill 600 and something for 2 nights. Worth it? I don't think so

The best part of this hotel is the location. Seemed a little overpriced but I suppose for June it was on par with other places. Staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Beachfront was wonderful!

The staff was very friendly, and the hotel had a great breakfast.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful. However, while the location is perfect this hotel - like many others on the Nags Head beach - is not very clean. The sand is hard to avoid and I can live with that, but the batroom fixtures are dirty, the floors appear to be swabbed as opposed to really cleaned. Complimentary breakfast was not very good - watery eggs, stale baked goods and very little choice of items. In all fairness to this hotel, the five others I've stayed at in this beach area over the years were pretty much the same.

While you'll spend a bit more to stay at this time of year, and even more to get that ocean view, this hotel offers a nice location central to many activities and an amazing morning view. the best value: get a surfboard with the room for just five bucks. beat that, and I'll give you a dollar!

Location was good, but the hotel was tired and dirty. Staff was nice and friendly. It was not a good value.

Excellent place, great staff and place. I have no complaints.

This is a great deal for people not looking to spend a lot of time in the room. The hotel is old and needs some major renovations. However, it's in a great location. Would stay here again if the price was right.

The hotel was okay but need to be cleaned better. The dusting of the room seem to never happen. The hotel is in desperate need of renovation. The bathroom ceil is coming apart and the baseboards are filthy. The air conditioning is so loud that I could hardly sleep. The carpet in the hallways in the hotel were dirty looking. In addtion, this was a hotel for pets. I will never stay at a hotel for pets again. At times I could hear the dog barking during the night. I thought that the dogs were supposed to stay on certain floors but not at this hotel. All in all the stay was just okay but I would not recommend this hotel.
