We visited Kill Devil Hills in early May (2018) and were thrilled with our accommodations at Shutters on the Banks. We stayed in the "tower", 4th floor and had an amazing view of the Ocean and a private balcony. A hop and a skip and we were on the beach every morning to watch the sunrise. Outdoor showers, adirondack chairs, gazebo, fresh cucumber/mint water, tastefully decorated rooms, comfortable beds, very clean, simply wonderful. It was our son's birthday and the front desk unexpectedly put a birthday message for him on the marquee! To top if off, the front desk offers a computer and printer to print boarding passes. Our only criticism is that the breakfast room uses a massive amount of styrofoam (plates, cups, etc.) that is simply tossed in the garbage. It would be wonderful if they would use recyclable items (or dishes). Overall, this place is a gem.

Room Tip: Stay in the "tower" for an ocean view

We spent 3 days at this wonderful little hotel. We did not have ocean view, but our room was tastefully decorated. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean and spacious. The beach was close, but the weather was a bit cool to be able to enjoy it. The breakfast was hot, with choices of eggs, cereal, biscuits and gravy, etc. Limited seating was the only drawback. We look forward to another visit.

The accommodations were terrific – the room has been recently renovated and looked brand new as though no one had ever stayed there. The staff members were friendly and very accommodating. Great ocean view; enjoyed our stay very much.

As an airline crew member, I stay in a lot of excellent hotels. We most appreciate the ones where they genuinely seem to love having us. Such is the case with the entire staff at Shutters on the Banks. The beds are great. The rooms are comfortable. Great views of the ocean from the 3rd & 4th floors. Very nice beach & the complimentary breakfast includes biscuits & gravy. Most Outer Banks attractions & excellent eateries are within short driving distances. This will be our hotel of choice on all future trips to the Outer Banks.

We had a 3rd floor ocean view with a balcony, and it was perfect. High enough to see the ocean from the balcony, but low enough not to be visible from the beach. Very quiet and private. Comfortable room, comfortable bed, newly renovated bathroom with a nice shower. Close enough for a short drive to anything. Mediocre breakfast. Nice people, friendly staff.
