Had my reservations about this hotel because although it is great to be on the beach, it is difficult to maintain a beach properties due to the salt exposure and guests tracking sand inside.
No worries at all - the hotel, although an older property, is beautifully maintained and absolutely clean. Not a chain, the staff were all very friendly and helpful and there were lots of little extras like beach chairs for the guests to borrow, a managers' reception at 4 pm and good quality beach towels to borrow. You walk out the back door and step out in the sand. Honestly, with zoning codes and all, most cities would never allow a hotel to be built on this beach but this part of the Outer Banks when they say Beachside property, they mean it.
What I liked:
Very clean facility, everything in the room worked
Friendly, helpful staff
Oversized rooms compared to the big name "chain" hotels
Small frigs in the room
Seating areas in all the rooms
High quality linens and towels - this is important to me as you can tell by my other reviews!
Good internet connection
Towels and chairs to borrow
Basic continental breakfast - saves at least $25 a day by starting with a basic cold breakfast
-Upgraded Continental breakfast baked goods
-Recycling program - would have loved to have a blue or green garbage can in the room for newspapers, water bottles and soda bottles. In a resort area, this type of program would really make sense since many people are traveling in family groups and/or groups of friends.
Highly recommended, I would stay here again without a doubt.
And if I were here for 3 nights or more, I would have looked into their "efficiency" units as it would be been nice to cook our own dinner or even bake our own pizza from the Food Lion or Harris Tweeter and saved considerable money.
