This is an excellent hotel in a superb resort area. We have always had good experiences at Holiday Inn hotels and this was no exception. It was chosen because of its proximity to the site of the first powered aircraft flight.by the Wright Brothers in Kitty Hawk. It was preceded by a stay at a Holiday Inn in Mt. Vernon, IL and followed by 4 nights at a Holiday Inn in Swedesboro, NJ. All were outstanding..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gee52 Comfortable bed and awesome staff.
We made reservations for one night only and after staying the one night found the staff to be so nice and friendly and the rooms to be so clean, that we returned two days later on our way back out of town on our return trip home. The staff not only recalled us, they even recalled the room we had stayed in. We will definitely be booking here again in the future. Very friendly staff and very knowledgable about things to do in the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by vacationers43 Excellent service but the room was disappointing.
The staff were courteous and efficient - no complaints.
However, I had some issues with the room: the carpet was a dark color to hide the grease & grime, yet we could still tell it was nasty - we were afraid to walk on it in our bare feet. It definitely needs cleaning or maybe replaced.
The wall next to the bed had something spilled on it, as if a can of soda exploded.
There were 2 or 3 small discolored spots( mold?) along the base and back wall of the bathtub. The toilet seat had a small chunk of plastic that had broken off. The seat should have been replaced.
The mattress was comfortable enough (somewhat old), just not as nice as I've come to expect from Holiday Inn.
Not a big thing, but the room above ours forgot to put their shower curtain inside the bathtub when they showered; water leaked through their floor and through our ceiling tiles into our bathroom. The manager was responsive about informing the upstairs guest and cleaning up the water.
On the plus side, the shower pressure and water temperature was great and the wifi worked well.
All in all I felt this was a poor value, this hotel was a bit pricier than other obx hotels I have used (and they were cleaner).
We did not have breakfast in the hotel or use many of the amenities so I cannot review them.
