    Convenient for the fishing tournament and it's Hatteras so enjoyed being in Hatteras

    The pillows suck the bedding wasnt up to par shower really suck some issues with the hotel room totally and the cleaning staff as far as daily basis did nt do overall job I would do it again if it cleaned up looks like there trying need more bang for the stay - buck !!

  • 5.4

    The people,as a community, were very friendly and laid-back. It was off season so 2/3 was closed understandably.

    The beds really need updating. Bathtubs are rusted.

    The room was amazing. I loved the 24hr coffee,juice, and tea in the lobby and liked having a 24hr front desk staff. The closeness to the beach was amazing(maybe like a block away).

    The pool was closed the entire time we was there. I cant blame the staff because the hurricane did it. The tower was also out of order but dont know why. When we first turned the shower on, it took like 5 minutes to heat up. I would have also liked to see donughts or something served for breakfast.

  • 5.8

    The room views were beautiful. My room was great.

    My family members room smelled horrible especially when refrigerator was open. I complained nothing was done then. I complained the next day and they were moved. Thenjoy that room was infested in Mosquitos.

    Do not stay here!! Unorganized and incompetent management unable to resolve reservation/room issues in a timely manner. Written by a Property Manager within the industry: POLICE outside when we pull up to check-in. We were told by the front desk clerk that there was a man with a knife and the ROOM RESERVED WAS DIRTY. We were then told we would have to have a room with two double beds. We decided to stay with the reservation and were the told manager would call to speak with us to resolve the issue. We did not receive a call all weekend or the following week. We return to the room on day two and both key cards are DEACTIVATED and it took 20 minutes to get our key cards reactivated. We were again reassured the manager would follow up to speak with us. We called the following week after we were still charged over $120.00 per night for the wrong room, the manager (Melida), told me she felt as if we should be satisfied with the discount we received and put our conversation on hold 5+ times. Then Melida told me she was busy as the only individual in the office and would get my email to response within the next hour. Manager eventually called me back to offer a slight discount asking me to find my credit card and repeat the number over the phone. Needless to say, I will be keeping an eye on this account... Overall, poor customer service and hospitality management from the top down. Save yourself the headache and stay at a much more professional, well-kept place for $120+ per night. It is not worth the price point and we will not be staying here again. Written by a Property Manager within the customer service/hospitality industry.

    Wish there is breakfast

  • 7.4

    It had a significant bleach odor.

  • 7.4

    Staff very helpful+very close to Hatteras Lighthouse.Bed very comfortable.Looks newly redone.

    Price higher than I think it should be for age but it is a coastal area.

  • 6.6

    Staff very friendly

    My room needed a lot of repair. Sheetrock in ceiling had holes and the bathroom fixtures were rusted.

  • 5.0

    Bathroom was mildewy,base of toilet covered in urine, fridge didn't work, musty inside the room.

  • 5.4

    When we got there,our room wasn't cleaned. It was after 4pm. The nice lady at the front desk gave us a different room. The place wasn't busy. Also, the coffee maker in the room was filthy and didn't work.

  • 9.6

    Very comfortable bed. Staff was courteous and helpful.

    A bit pricey but not unexpected for the area.
