Very Nice hotel on the beach

Great hotel in the Outer Banks

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Location: Don't miss happy hour at Hurricane Mo's!
This is a great hotel. We love the location and being near the pier is great for fishing. The hotel staff was very accommodating.

Not the place for a relaxing week at the beach.

Posted Aug 23, 2014
This is a low end business convention hotel that happens to be at the beach. Building needs a good power washing. Balconies are incredibly small and dirty. Side view ocean room is basically a view of Rite Aid and parking lot. Beach is much better a few miles south of this location. There was a distinct smell of bug spray in hallways each morning. Not appealing way to start the day.

Best location on OBX, attentive staff, loved pier!

Posted Aug 22, 2014
With less than a week notice, we booked a quick 3-day "escape" (our only vacation in 2 years) and thanks to the great location and staff it ended as a wonderful, relaxing experience. The close proximity to the pier is especially nice if your family has fishermen and beach lovers. All the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive and management went above and beyond to address any issues we experienced, including making sure our final morning was memorable!! We appreciated enjoying the sunrise to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary. We have visited the Outer Banks for 20 years and while we chose Hilton this time because of availability on short notice, we will now make it our first choice for future "escapes" !! We just hope we have more than 3 days of sunrises on future visits.

Wonderful, beach-front hotel

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff, clean hotel, close to the beach and shops.
Cons: Maid service was a bit overwhelmed so they did not get to our room on the second day.
Location: Duck donuts across the street, Harris Teeter, 30 mins from lighthouses.
Our family really enjoyed this hotel. It is conveniently located steps from the beach, shops, restaurants. The hotel was very nice and clean, with free cookies for the kids and free coffee for the adults. Staff was very attentive and friendly. I forgot my iPad at the hotel and Jacqueline helped me find it and send it back to me expeditiously. There is a small pool that we did not use but saw many guests using. The outdoor restaurant was good and bartender was very friendly and attentive as well. We will definitely return next summer.

Nice hotel on the beach

Posted Aug 7, 2014
Pros: Friendly and courteous staff. Cheerful environment. Nice, clean, oceanfront room with privacy.
Location: Hotel was conviently located for day trips and dining out.
The pier was enjoyable in the mornings and as a cool down at the end of the day. We didn't expect to be so comfortable. It was a pleasant surprise.
