I've stayed at pretty much every motel at the outer banks during the past 20 years and don't know how I missed this one. The motel, and especially the rooms, are very well maintained, and had features that other motels on the beach could learn from. The motel is on the beachfront but has no sand dunes to block the view of the ocean. The sand is flat from the motel to the water's edge, and the ocean is only 100' or so from the building. The rooms are bright and cheery. The big feature I liked was that the heat / AC unit wasn't one of those 'thru-the-wall' type that blow out on the balcony and make it hot and uncomfortable to sit there. It was a rooftop unit with a wall thermostat in the room. By not having the 'thru-the-wall' heat pump, it allowed for a balcony wall of floor to ceiling glass; with even the door being glass. This provide a great view of the ocean. The motel is centrally located in Kill Devil Hills between Nags Head and Kitty Hawk. This will be my go-to motel on future visits.

The John Yancey, was a very nice hotel, the staff was most gracious when we checked in. Our room was very nice, we were really suprised it had a frig, a micro wave and a coffee maker. At first I wasn't sure about the matress on the bed it felt crunchie when you sat of it, but I have to say I sleep better than I have in a long time. Will definitely stay there again, the rates are reasonable and the location is awesome.
