Our hotel is conveniently located to a lot of the attractions on the Outer Banks. Glad to hear you were able to take advantage of them. Our wine social is a great time for our guest to meet and then a lot of them become long time friends.

Good location, and nice view. However whatever cleaning products they used smelled up the entire room for our entire stay and it wasn’t a pleasant smell.

This is a great, family friendly hotel. The rooms are very large and clean, the beach is right outside, there is a nice size outdoor pool and a small indoor pool and hot tub. Don't mistake this for a five star hotel, it is down to earth and friendly. I loved my stay, the beautiful beach, and the balcony with direct ocean view.
