Our first stay in Hatteras was here and we found the whole experience very pleasing. We stayed in the main part of the inn. Rooms were clean and done every day for us. The desk staff were friendly and helpful. The location of this inn is nice since I like to fish and I was able to walk down to...

While the main hotel is nice looking and photos well, don't underestimate the fisherman's quarters. Clean, comfy, and CHEAP! I am picky, and this place doesn't look at all like sometihng I would have enjoyed as much as I did from the photos, or even standing in the parking lot looking at it, but in the end, loved it for...

Love it for the overall value, especially relative to other available hotels/motels in the OBX. Paid $150+ on an extremely busy island weekend where nearly every single place was booked in the entire OBX. Our favorite thing about this hotel is its location, waterfront on the sound (not ocean obviously), right in front of Oden's Dock, "the" place where fishermen...

Clean as a whistle, wonderful cheerful staff, and the best views across the Pamlico sound on the island. Oden's dock is right out the back door, and you can catch the fleet unload their catch. Walk over to their restaurant, the Breakwater, and relax on the back porch and watch the sun set! We will definitely be back!

I stayed for one night off-season (April) and selected the hotel as all others require a two night stay. The room was clean, as was the bathroom. I had to hold the toilet seat up, but other than that the bathroom was fine. My room had a microwave and refrigerator. The restaurant next door (sorry, I forgot the name) was...

Our room - well all the rooms actually - have private porches looking over the marina and the sound beyond, and it provided a beautiful sunset view for us during our one-night stay in Hatteras. The hotel is pretty basic but clean and comfortable. Located near the ferry and across from a great little breakfast place. If you're a fisherman...

It's still winter in Hatteras Village NC as the cold Atlantic wind blows in from the East... but we aren't concerned. The view we have from our Breakwater Inn veranda is a sunny clear day with a cool breeze drifting over the Pamlico Sound. Fishing boats in the distance, gulls and pelicans gliding on the breezes overhead. If one desires...

We did a 3 night groupon trip and this has been a great place to stay. We had the room with 2 queen beds and the room was very clean and the view from the deck is amazing. I like how the deck area is private to each room. You are looking out over the sound and an active fishing...

We used a Groupon getaway and were not disappointed in our room here. It had a nice little balcony right on the sound where a lot of fishing boats docked and left around 5:30 a.m. It was cool to watch them leave in the dark. The room was comfortable with a refrigerator and microwave if needed. Everything worked just fine,...

Used a Groupon for the off season so got a great deal on the room. We were there about 2 weeks before the season officially starts (Easter) so about half the restaruants and shops were open. Our room was fabulous. We had a King suite which had a separate bedroom from the living/kitchen area. Kitchen with full size appliances. LOVED...
