This was a great place to stay. Everyone is friendly, it's right on the beach, the location is convenient because it is surrounded with food places and things to do and they have to best helpful housekeeping. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Hotel was a nice clean hotel with good location to the ocean and local attractions. But having to eat the sweet potatoes biscuits a d store bought pastry for several days was hard to do and provided a person with an extreme amount of calories to start off their day. The only saving grace the breakfast had was the Orange...

Check-in was friendly and efficient. Location on the beach is nice with lots of good restaurants within a few miles. Good central location to visit the Wright Bros memorial, Lost Settlement sites, Pea Island, and Alligator River areas. Overall experience was good, but a few negatives bring the rating down. Breakfast was very limited with only packaged biscuits and pastries....

The Nags Head Inn was a very nice, clean and great ocean front inn. The customer service was great, from the check in staff to the nice folks that clean your room daily. All would make eye contact & speak to guests, "all" of them. Rare in this current environment. The inn provides coffee & juice each morning along with...

The hotel rooms are basic rooms as expected. The beds are very comfortable. We had a balcony looking out to the ocean which was great for dolphin watching in the mornings. The breakfast was a nice surprise with ham sweet potato biscuits compliments of Kelly's restaurant. The beach access is great. There is plenty of parking available. Will stay here...

Welcoming reception and nice large room. We were in 521 with two double beds, a frig and microwave. Nice bathroom. All very clean. We loved our balcony overlooking the beach, the waves, the sunrise and having a window that opens so we could hear the waves all night. (It was cool enough not to need air conditioning.) We loved watching...

I highly recommend the Nags Head Inn. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The hotel is very clean even though it is an older hotel. The location is perfect....walk right on to the beach and convenient to surrounding beaches and attractions.

Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, great beach access. Stayed 4 nights and enjoyed it. Liked the free breakfast - sweet potato biscuits with country ham were great. Try booking direct with them. They had a 4 nights for 3 special which did' show on Expedia or Travago. And they're strict about noise.
