Fine for short weekend stay

Posted Oct 20, 2017
Pros: Convenient location and right on the beach.
This was our first trip to OBX, had only a few days to explore, so wanted something convenient. Thie location is great and close to many restaurants and Wright Memorial Park. Interior areas need some updating. Shower pressure was minimal. Lobby was very nice and inviting. We do understand that being on the ocean buildings take a beating, so overall it's a decent place to stay. Staff was great. Our fire alarm was beeping when we checked in, and within 5 minutes maintenance was there to fix it. They only have an inside pool, which may be great for kids on rainy days, but there's no area to lay out around a pool. That said, the beach is also right there. We had an oceanfront room on an upper floor, which is more expensive, but recommended if you want to actually see the ocean from your room. Floors 1 and 2 seem like the can only see the sand dunes, but those are there for an important purpose - to protect properties. We didn't get to check their bar or restaurant, so can't comment on that.

Not pleased

Posted Oct 18, 2017
Pros: View
Cons: Everything
Location: Great location and lots of things to do. Thank goodness.
The view was fine but it stopped there. The Air Conditioner was not working properly to remove humidity, so everything from pillows to sheets and towels were very damp. Requested another room but booked solid. When you walk in the room from outside, it smelled very musty and moldy. We told management but their response was "It's very humid around here and there is nothing we can do". The carpet was filthy. Very, Very unhappy. We will never stay there again.

Not so happy staff

Posted Oct 17, 2017
Pros: Room comfort and View of Ocean
Cons: Room cleaning. First day, room wasn't cleaned until after 5pm. We were advised hotel staff was reduced for winter. A bit early for NC in October.
Hotel was clean and comfortable. Good view of ocean. Some of the hotel employees did not display a friendly attitude. Gave us a expression hotel was not good place to work.

One night stay was great

Posted Sep 16, 2017
The hotel was actually nicer than I thought it would be. I usually stay at the Hilton Gatsen Inn but decided to give the Ramada a try this time around. I can say I was very pleased with the cleanliness of the hotel including the room. The staff was great too. I will definitely save money from here on out and choose the Ramada.

Nice

Posted Sep 14, 2017
Pros: good, good location.
Cons: none
Location: Brew thru, yea, lots of restaurants nearby, and the Wright brothers Kill Devil Hills, not far from other lighthouses to visit.
Enjoyed having the walkway directly behind the motel to the beach access. Also enjoyed the bird in the lobby. Staff was great.

Yes, our pet Sabrina is a lot of fun to watch in our hotel lobby! And the large outdoor deck behind the hotel with the walkway to the beach is the perfect place for guests to enjoy the sun and sea breezes while relaxing with a cool drink or good book. Thank you for staying with us and we would love to see you again in the Outer Banks.

Great location. Really close to the beach.

Posted Sep 12, 2017
Pros: The Oceanside view. The staff. The size of the room. It had a refrigerator and microwave. Comfy beds
Location: Right on the beach. Close to American Pie ice cream. Could walk to numerous places to eat
Loved my Oceanside view. Got to see the sunrise from my room. The staff were really nice. I especially liked Tracy. I had to change my reservation last minute and she worked with me to get it right. She worked out all the kinks and made my stay awesome. I really appreciate her help. I love how the hotel had a stairway that led to the beach. Parking was great. The restaurant had an awesome breakfast burrito and wonderful view. I would def stay again.

There is nothing like watching the sun rise from one of our ocean view rooms. We will tell Tracy how she upheld our values for excellent service from check-in to check out, too. Our convenient location between Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head is also great because it is in driving distance to plenty of fun OBX attractions. We truly appreciate your patronage and would love to have you back for another stay.
