This was my first visit to the outerbanks and first one in seven years for my wife. Our first stay at the Inn also. Thanks to the Management and Staff when a problem came up with our third party reservation. We were able to extend our stay for an additional day as orginally planned W/O having to change rooms. Extremely...

The staff were very nice and welcoming.I read one review that complained of a musty smell and that was noticeable in the room I stayed in (102) but it was tolerable. The room was nicely set up. I liked the mini fridge and the microwave and the newer flat screen tv was nice. I brought my laptop and my own...

Thank you for your positive feedback and kind words with regard to our staff. We really appreciate it as we take pride in having a warm, caring and friendly staff. We do, however, apologize for the bags of towel and toiletries left outside of your room. We will make sure to address this issue to our housekeeping department. I do...

One of the things we truly appreciate about the Outer Banks is its warm and friendly people. Our customer service experiences at eateries and businesses have all been pleasurable…with the exception of the Outer Banks Inn. It was a lone individual, but I had the unpleasant experience that was Emily both at check-in and check-out. I can say without reservation...

The Outer Banks is certainly known for warm and friendly people which is part of many things that make our beautiful area so unique. I first want to say that I sincerely apologize for the experience you encountered with a staff member. We are known for excellent customer service and this situation is certainly atypical. I remember that situation specifically...

We stayed one night on an impromptu trip to Outer Banks. The room was clean; everything worked; the staff were frlendly and the price excellent.

We booked a house in Waves to arrive on Sat evening. Our Friday opened up so we decided to come down a day early. I searched for a hotel on the northern end of the outer banks so we could hit all the attractions up there before heading south for the week. We didn't need much just a bed and...

I very much enjoyed my time at the Outer Banks Inn. The staff were friendly and helpful, it was quiet and in a great location. It's an easy walk to the beach and there's a 24-hour pharmacy right down the street. Their prices are the best, and the continental breakfast was much better than I expected. There is one exception,...

I sincerely appreciate the kind words and do apologize for the dampness you encountered.

The Outer Banks Inn was a new one for me. I typically stay a little farther south, but pay quite a bit more. For the money, the OBI was just fine. The staff was extremely friendly. I've read a lot of OBI reviews talking about the musty smell in 3rd floor rooms. I was on the 2nd floor and experienced...

Based upon TripAdvisor reviews, we booked the Outer Banks Inn thinking it may at least be above average, especially considering the cost. To our dismay, the room was very dated with cheap towels and a constant bad musty smell. Altgough it's close to the beach and we found a great Thai restaurant within walking distance, our overall impression was poor....

My room was comfortable and clean, and the location was convenient, very close to public beach access and the Wright Brothers Memorial. Unfortunately, my room was next to a door that was accessible to guests 24 hours, a day, thus my room was extremely noisy. You can also forget about an early check in. The breakfast served was good, and...
