The air quality in our room was questionable. The room was damp b/c of all the humidity in the air. Not sure what was going on really. The other thing that was bothersome was the TV used the internet.. That would be great if they had enough bandwidth to support it. It was so slow we just turned it off. Other than these two issues...Our stay was just fine. Maybe a tad over priced for this hotel.

Thank you for your feedback. It is sometimes difficult to control the humidity here on the beach; the warm air from the balcony mixes with the cool air from air conditioner and creates humidity in the room. Technology is wonderful; when it does as we would like, unfortunately that is not always the case. It seems like a good wind or a strong rain can sometimes challenge our connections. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to the Outer Banks.

Didn’t get the room we reserved. Was charged the same for an inferior room and when I checked out early due to dissatisfaction they charged me for the 2nd day anyway. I would not recommend this place to anyone! What a rip off! The staff don’t care.

Great views of the ocean. Motel is convenient to other activities. Happy hour is a nice touch. Breakfast this time was lacking in variety.

Our hotel is conveniently located to a lot of the attractions on the Outer Banks. Glad to hear you were able to take advantage of them. Our wine social is a great time for our guest to meet and then a lot of them become long time friends.

Good location, and nice view. However whatever cleaning products they used smelled up the entire room for our entire stay and it wasn’t a pleasant smell.
