It’s an older facility, but it’s clean; rooms and bathrooms are updated. No surprises! (The Holiday In slogan at one time). Staff is very friendly. Highly recommended.

Indoor pool only with excessive chlorine content. No decent outdoor sitting area. Lousy breakfast. Added $15.00 surcharge for ??? after paying $325.85 per night/per room.

It is a nice place. Breakfast was good. Our "view" room was a view mostly of the parking lot with a hint of the ocean. Maybe if we were on a higher floor there would have been a view. Not happy about that since we paid for a room with a view.

I had the best experience at this hotel. It is right on the beach and has everything that makes a good home away from home. The staff were professional and friendly. They were wonderful and helped us celebrate our vacation. This hotel had a hearty breakfast available with sausage, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, yoghurt and some other options that changed every day. There are restaurants within walking distance as well. There is not room service but plenty of order in options from near by restaurants. The rooms were clean and the beds are exceptionally soft. We had some pealing ceiling in our room above the t.v but I think the high humidity must take a toll on every building. The housekeeping services were exceptional.

Overall good with some caveats

Pros: The staff was exceptionally friendly and the cleaning staff was very efficient.
Cons: Additional wireless modems would be a great improvement. Whether the type of AC can be quieted down is above my pay grade.
Location: We enjoyed the nearby restaurants, the easy beach access and did a Hummer tour of the Spanish pony area that was fun.
Overall, loved the hotel and the location. Marring the experience was a very noisy AC unit and terrible wireless internet. Perhaps the 4th floor room was too far from the wireless router... ended up using up all my monthly cellphone data in three days.

Very Impressed with the staff and hotel!

Pros: The modern look and feel or the rooms, AND the balcony overlooking the ocean.
Cons: I think a shower at the end of the stairs would be great rather than traversing across the parking lot to shower off before entering the hotel.
Location: We went to the Lost Colony play, always a favorite place to visit.
My granddaughter and I stayed for one night. Sharlene went above and beyond to get us an early check in. She's a great asset to this hotel, very personable, and welcoming. My coffee machine was not working the next morning. I let one of the housekeepers know that was in the hallway, and the head housekeeper brought a new one up, unpacked it and set it up for me. I had stayed in this hotel in previous years when it was the Nags Head Inn. The remodel for the Holiday Inn Express is impressive, very modern and updated. I appreciated that I had not just 4 towels for a double room but six!! It is easy to go through towels when showering in the am and then again in the pm for dinner at the beach. The breakfast was great, and we enjoyed the indoor pool too.
