Room on 5th floor had a beautiful view of the ocean. All amenities as advertised, and very clean. Staff was very friendly. The location is very convenient to both the ocean, and the sights of the area.

Located on the beach on Virginia Dare, which runs parallel to Hwy. 158. Upper floors (4 and 5) have good ocean view. Lower floors not so much because there is a massive sand dune between the hotel and the beach. To access the beach it is necessary to climb a sturdy wooden staircase (nice photo op at top) and then...

Room amenities say include oceanfront balcony, hair dryer, microwave, etc. our "balcony" was 6" wide overlooking the street. Beware tho, rooms on floor 2, Oceanside, could only see parking lot. Rooms were immaculate. Breakfast service very good. Front desk poor. Pictures online were difficult to duplicate. Loved Nags Head! We will be back. Just not here.

I'm a IHG Spire member staying 150+ nights a year. This is one of the greatest properties! Beautifully redone with all the state of the art amenities. But the staff Heather and Robert are by far some of the best customer service I've had. I can't wait to come back and stay again!

The hotel appears to have been very recently renovated. Our room was fairly large and comfortable with a great ocean view! The indoor pool area is a little dated with the pool itself in need of a facelift, but it was still very enjoyable. Breakfast was standard Holiday Inn Express items.

Great room, very comfy beds, great breakfast, will definitely return! Only issue was the railing on the balcony was directly in front of me when I sat, but that is minor. Handicapped ramp on beach access is nice.
