Conveniently located off Highway 12, this Ramada Plaza Nags Head Oceanfront hotel is next to scenic beaches with water-skiing, parasailing, and ocean-kayaking. The hotel is near the lighthouse and Cape Hatteras National Seashore. After an exciting day, refresh at this smoke-free hotel with complimentary wireless Internet access, indoor pool, hot tub, on-site restaurant, fitness center, room service, ocean-view ballroom, meeting facilities and business center. Guest room amenities include refrigerator, microwave and desk. Handicapped-accessible and hot tub rooms are available. There is no charge for children 17 and under with an adult.
I liked the ice machine with good proximity to the room. For the most part, the staff were nice. The balcony was a nice touch.
Let's start with the bird that almost ate my girlfriend's finger. I have pictures. It isn't pretty. Apparently, this bird belongs to the owner (!) and, to be honest, it almost died that day. I almost killed the bird, despite being an active vegan and animal rights supporter. That is how enraged I was. The staff took two minutes to find a spray bottle to de-couple this bird from her hand. The bird, we can only guess, was mad at my girlfriend for allowing the bird to rest on her arm, but she wasn't actively petting the bird. After the incident, the staff snickered and thought it WAS FUNNY. When we asked for some hydrogen peroxide, they responded "we are out". They did provide us with alcohol wipes. This is unacceptable. One could go off about random yellow stains - topical, actual, mustard-like stains on the ceiling of the room, (also have pictures), or the staff scrubbing our appointment before we arrived (via Kayak, NOT Expedia), or the lack of HBO, but I'm gonna stay on the bird-thing. Absolutely not cool. Not only will I never go to any Ramada Inn again, but I am going to make sure everyone I know traveling through the OBX knows about their lobby-piece "Sabrina the biting bird". The fact that staff reacted as if it was "just another biting" and even upon checkout we got the "jeez, so sorry" in that "please go away" tone makes us feel like they get PLEASURE from watching people get injured from this bird. Yelp is my next stop. Take this place off your list of where to stay.
Easy access to oceanfront, nice pool and jacuzzi inside, clean, quiet, professional and courteous staff.
Very friendly staff. Hotel was clean and renovations (ongoing) are really nice.
Visited for the weekend and woke up Saturday morning to no hot water- apparently the hotel is not well equipped enough to handle multiple guests showering at once. The heat in our room wasn't functioning properly- and all around awful experience.
Very nice place to stay. Love that it was right on the beach. We could see and hear the ocean from our room. We will recommend this motel to everybody. All the staff was very nice and pleasant. We had a very nice stay. Thanks!!
Proximity to beach and entertainment in Nags Head
Overpriced hotel for lackluster hotel. I stayed in a non-smoking room, but people in the next room we're smoking on their balcony and the smoke smell drifted into my room. Decor is severely outdated. No easy route to get to the beach. You had to walk through the pool each time.
The staff was great and made our time there very enjoyable. We loved the beachside deck, swings, gazebos, and bar. Our son asked his girlfriend to marry him while we were staying there. The staff was excellent in allowing the "future" in-laws to join us in a day of celebration during our stay there. We all enjoyed the beach, the outside eating facilities, and the fellow who ran the bar - he was GREAT! :) Thank you for making our time so special.
It would be great to provide a light breakfast to your customers. This is always so nice when we have stayed at other facilities. Having a large pot of coffee with bagels/fruit/muffins would be wonderful. We did not enjoy the coffee in the room - it was not as good as what we were able to get from the restaurant. Our ice machine never worked on the 5th floor the entire time we were there. We "scouted" the other ice machines to get our ice.
