Very pleased with my stay ( June 19th, 2014 and June 20th, 2014). the rooms were very nice. I also have to say what pleasant staff you have working there. Everyone said hello to you. I also have to say Renee at the front desk went over and beyond. She was such a pleasure to deal with.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by loki2486 Old property, needs updating badly
The door to this room did not close properly. The lever at top of door that acts like a door chain lock was broken. The lock in the door mechanism was very hard to get to lock because the door did not close properly. Mattress very soft and top was larger than the bottom. Fit oddly.

I always stay at a Holiday Inn and this time was no exception. Good location to all activities on the outer banks, staff was very friendly , especially the ladies who handled the morning breakfast, They went beyond the call of duty to keep the area clean and the guest accommodated.
My only complaint would be that the place itself is a little tired looking, could use a bit of a refurbish.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Canseniors Good Value
We enjoyed our stay at The Holiday Inn. It was just a short walk to the beach and convenient to the other sights we wanted to visit. The staff were very friendly and gave excellent service. The room was kept clean and of an adequate size. The bed was very comfortable. Pillows could have been better. The breakfast was great. Lots of choice and presented nicely. We would stay here again.

Although we had a little trouble locating the hotel when we arrived after dark, once we got there, it was a wonderful experience.
The staff was very friendly, especially the breakfast staff who work hard to make sure the breakfast bar is always full. I never spoke to a staff member who didn't say hello or ask if there was something they could help me with. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was good but not for the beach.
I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is outdated and it is not oceanfront. However, it is a short walk to the beach. The staff was friendly and accommodating.
The rooms are clean, but they are outdated. For the rates they charge I was expecting a recently remodeled hotel.

Staff was very friendly, especially our sweet maid who left us a nice note. Breakfast was good and the facility was clean. The building could use a little updating but was clean and comfortable. The only thing that was a little disapointing was the distance to the beach.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by trainman327 Nice Hotel on the Outer Banks
This is a good hotel for a stay on the Outer Banks. There are few chain hotels where points can be used. Although I didn't book early enough to stay on points, this is a place where you can stay if you are an IHG Club member.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suzy 65 Pleasantly surprised
After reading some of the reviews about this hotel I was a little hesitant about booking it but went ahead and booked it. I was pleasantly surprised. Rooms were clean and everything was nice. Think it is an older hotel and in tourist area often means things won't be like you expect but this one was.
After the desk clerk had stuffed potato chips in her mouth and chewed she got right to our reservations which were ready. And we were recognized as Platinum members and received our points. Am chuckling because if a potato chip eating clerk was the worst that happened I'd say this was a very good stay!

the bed was very comfortable however the odor in the room was bad. probably coming from nasty carpet? I didn't give a 5 star for cleanliness. don't know how that got on my survey. the lady at the front desk was very nice. when I made reservations I ask for on the beach and who ever I talked to said it was on the beach. when we got there it was 2 blocks off the beach. she tried to get a number for me to call the ones who booked for me, but was unable to find one, so we stayed there. the trip was for a granddaughter wh hadn't been to the ocean, so wasn't much fun for her to look out at another bld or a bank of sand

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chelz21 Friendly staff; great location
From the minute we entered the hotel, the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was ready earlier than the stated check-in time, and it was clean and spacious with a great view of the beach. Breakfast was standard fare, but there was good variety and the food area was well-staffed and tidy. We would definitely stay here again when visiting the Outer Banks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mickey3 Perfect in nearly every way!
I called HIE at Kitty Hawk on the Thursday before Memorial Day weekend...and got a room! The room was great and pretty reasonably priced considering the timing. Staff was excellent in all ways and friendly in the OBX way without being over-bearing. I do wish it had better access to the beach., but that was the only small drawback to this otherwise great hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bernie87 A comfortable and convenient stay
Conveniently located to the beach area and the must visit Wright Memorial, the H. Inn Express is a great place to stay. The staff were friendly and accomodating throughout our stay and our room was quiet, comfortable and clean. I guess the rate was a little expensive, but this has to be considered in the context of our visit being at weekend and on Saturday night it was fully booked. The Black Pelican is within easy walking distance and has excellent seafood. We'd definitely stay again.

Though I was hoping to be on the beach, this hotel was fine. Just basic room and service, but good value for the price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mark191 Hotel needs renovation
The hotel is in need of renovations. We did not sleep well due to noise from surrounding rooms. Neighbors were taking showers at 5:30 am and the noise made it sound like they were in our shower. The web photos showing the beach are not representative. We thought the hotel was on the beach based on the photos. Beach is across the parking lot, through a sand field and across a road.
On the plus side the staff was very friendly and the breakfast may have been one of the best we have experienced. However, based on the noise we cannot recommend this hotel.
The printer with the general use computer did not work and the staff person on duty was very accommodating.

My experience at this particular Holiday Inn Express was great. The room was clean, comfortable bed, great shower and breakfast is always a delight. All staff were very friendly and helpful. I am a IHG member, was not offered a welcome pack or cookies like at other hotels (only disappointment).

Fortunately I was there for a wedding not the beach- cold, windy and rainy. Obviously not the hotel's fault. Staff was friendly, room clean, nice and on the large side. Breakfast was good for a free one. I would stay again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DaveM17 noisy guests
Usually this a reasonable hotel to stay in when on the Outer Banks. However, this time it was FULL of very noisy teenagers who, despite my asking politely, would not keep the noise down. In full disclosure, I was told in advance that there were a group of kids staying that night but I feel it is the responsibility of the hotel to ensure that they do not disturb the other guests. I did ask the front desk to talk to the chaperones but it did not seem to happen, and if they did, it did not have the desired effect.
Therefore, on this occasion, I give the hotel a negative review.
I understand the draw for the hotel to fill up, off season, with a school group but it should not be to the detriment of other guests, particularly guests who have stayed before on many occasions and one who has 1,300,000 IHG points and stays over 100 nights per year with IHG.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Janet TD The Staff is The Best Part
To start I want to say the staff here is wonderful. Mary, Sarah, Cherese (sp) truly made us feel welcome and went over and above. But the hotel itself really needs to be updated and a good cleaning. The hotel smells musty and the 2nd floor feels/sounds like its going to fall in on the first floor. The drapes in the room are visibly dusty and smell dirty. The refrigerator in the room had broken shelves on the door, no front leg so it wobbled, and made noise all night long. The food in the vending machines are old and turning colors. The maids in the hall in early morning were loud while in the supply room and we could hear everything.
I have been making it a point to say at Holiday Inn Express as my first choice over the last year as I am a IHG member and like how they have renovated all their properties but I probably won't stay here again unless physical changes are made. As I said the staff is wonderful, it's just a shame the hotel is in such disarray.
