10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was spacious and comfortable with extra amenities(microwave, small frig, extra counter space and small sink in room in addition to bathroom). A great value for what we paid. My only proviso is it is not a place for people who have trouble with stairs. No elevator that I saw. But part of the charm is staying in a historic hotel!! I will be staying there in the future if at all possible.
Cons: Nothing!!!!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice room with 55 inch flat HDTV and cable TV included. No huge mirror above desk which I always thought was distracting. Kitchenette with microwave, fridge, and keurig cofee machine with complementary coffee packets. Closet with iron included.

Pros: Clean, comfortable
Cons: No real breakfast. AC Unit was very noisy and vibrated, buzzed badly.
9.1 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location, friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms, and the whole facility was just nice and up to date.
Cons: The water in the shower never really got above what my fiancé and I would describe as "lukewarm", but that was so minor we forgot to tell the front desk. The only other suggestion would be an expanded television channel selection or at least a guide channel of some sort. Again, extremely minor.

Pros: The location! Right on the beach, and in the middle of everything else in the OBX.

7.0 Good
Cons: Couple flies in the room during stay
5.7 Okay
Pros: Location is perfect. Ample parking. They allow pets.
Cons: The staff just didn’t pay attention to guests. Check in process was slow. Property shows signs of wear and tear which is surprising as we went before the season started. Amenities don’t reflect the price we paid. Beds are uncomfortable as if you’re laying on a bunch of sprints. Linens were smelly. Curtains didn’t work. Blackout curtains didn’t close completely. Access door to the beach didn’t work and there was a warning posted on the inside of the door warning people to not lock themselves out.
8.5 Excellent
Pros: This hotel was exactly what I wanted it to be - reasonably priced and right on the beach. You know when you're booking a Comfort Inn that it's not going to be a luxury experience, but everything was well-kept and staff were very helpful and accommodating.
6.0 Good
Pros: Great location. Breach view. Friendly Staff. Decent Breakfast.
Cons: Many problems with the room. Tub drained poorly. TV didn't work. Went to a new room. AC unit broke. They couldn't fix it. Maid service was substandard. Limited ice machines.
5.4 Okay
Pros: The location was near the ocean. I liked the location and the small shaded table on the deck.
Cons: Two elevators to get to my room. When I chose to take the stairwell it smelt of urine, dampness and mold. No exhaust fan in the bathrooms. Outside balcony constantly stayed wet from something dripping from above. Lack of parking on comedy night- would have thought since I was staying and paying for my room that guests coming to see a comedy show would have to park across the street. Staff moped every day in front of the lobby and the cleaning solvent didn't smell good at all. Front staff was very nice. Also getting luggage carts into two elevators that almost appeared to be too small very irritating.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice staff.
Cons: Strange elevator layout; moderate inconvenience but nothing terrible.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: We've stayed nearly everywhere on the beach (I grew up on the obx and we come often to visit family). This is one of the cleanest hotels on the beach, and certainly the friendliest staff. It's got its short comings like everywhere else, but it's over all, a great hotel for the (off season/shoulder) price.
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: No one at front desk for 20 minutes and they didn't answer their phone. Room stunk like a wet dog. Front desk person named Mardi was unprofessional and gruff.

4.0 Okay
Pros: Location across from beach was good. Towels were clean and fresh. Sheets were OK, but bedspreads were questionable.
Cons: Old motel had not been updated. Microwave and refrigerator old . There were no racks in the refrigerator. Carpet dirty. Lighting inadequate. (Floor lamp had no bulb.) There was no electrical outlet in bathroom for hairdryer. We had to unplug microwave from power strip to use hairdryer near a mirror in the bedroom. The curtains were awful, especially the ones at back of room. The unit had a very unacceptable odor. Bathroom exhaust fan worked but its light was dim and the plastic cover was brown with age and cracked. Although the fan's motor worked, it did not do the job it was designed to do.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: staff was friendly, knowledgeable location was excellent
Cons: no wifi
9.1 Excellent
Pros: Closeness to the beach
Cons: Small shower

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was clean and had a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. You could walk to the ocean through an archway. Which was very convenient.
Cons: The bathroom was very small. It took several minutes for the hot water in the shower to warm up. It did not have room for a bathtub. There were small ants that were crawling around on the nightstand. I found some ants crawling on me at night.
