This hotel is a bit dated and could use some remodeling. We were told that it used to be a Comfort Inn and it did have the feel of that kind of motel. Staff was pleasant and it is a good place to stay last minute as many of the places were booked. The hotel has an observation deck which...

We were very pleased with our room and the convenient location. It was an easy walk to the ocean and an easy drive to the ferry. Even though there is no breakfast offered, the coffee and juice in the office was enjoyable. The staff was very accommodating.

Loved this place. Nothing fancy, but it was really clean and all the employees were really nice. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Close to multiple places to eat. Just down the street from the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse as well. A short drive to the ferry to get to Ocracoke or drive north to Avon, Waves and Salvo.

This place used to be the Comfort Inn. The staff was great and very informative. I usually pass through here on my stay to Ocracoke Island, but I decided to make a change this spring and fish Hatteras. I did not know too many places to dine, but the staff gave me a few places to try and they did...

My family and I stayed here during an impromptu outer Banks visit. Rates were very affordable. I expected a lower end motel for the price Bu the rooms were clean and well furnished. Staff was professional and polite

We were disappointed with our visit at the Hatteras Island Inn. The room itself was nice enough, however the cleanliness of the room was lacking. The daily making up of the bed was not done - a nonworking refrigerated was in our room which we reported, but was not repaired. We lost some items of food due to the broken...

Good room, clean bedding and grounds. Staff is very cooperative and hospitable and after staying on a weekly basis, we have learned about updates that are occurring in the winter in bathroom and shower areas. If any criticisms it would be how the salt air has rusted out showers, hinges and metal products inside the rooms. Knowing there will be...

We stayed for a Friday thru Sunday weekend in late September - our first trip to the lower Outer Banks. The area? Fantastic - quiet, beautiful, relaxing. The weather was great and the local food offerings were very satisfying. The hotel, however? A rather large disappointment. Thank goodness we at least got the slightly reduced "non-peak season" rate of about...
