    It was okay Carrie Sep. 28, 2016
    It was okay

    The location of this hotel was great! There were a lot of people with dogs staying here. The room itself was not great. Their was no decor or pictures on the wall. The beds were uncomfortable. The carpet was all ripped and frayed at the entryway and looked very old. That being said, everything was clean and with us staying in a "pet room", there was no evidence of other pets ever staying there. No fur or stains. It just looked rather run down, or that the room was an after thought. I think I definitely spent too much money ($130 + 2 pet fees) on the room but I was okay with it this time since it was a spur of the moment weekend away. If I had more time to plan I would have stayed somewhere else.

    I picked this hotel because of it is pet friendly with very reasonable pet fees ($20 night). It has a great location, right in between Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head with beach access. The front desk staff is quite helpful and kind. The hotel itself is well maintained; a little run down but I would not expect any less from a beach front in a very windy area. There is maintenance staff constantly around and they seemed to address other people’s issues promptly, as I did not have any. I am a dog owner so I booked a pet-friendly room. I noticed that these rooms are located in what appears to be the old building which not that bad. They seem to accommodate smokers and pets in this building which could seem inconvenient for people like me who do not smoke, but honestly I was not bothered by that at all. The pet-friendly rooms also have a kitchenette with microwave, coffee maker, small fridge and a little dining area. The rooms are pretty clean considering they cannot know what kind of pets stay there or what they could do in the room. For the most part was quite clean but the carpet was a little too humid and sticky to me. Note for dog owners: Please be considerate with other people. Some guests tend to leave their pets untended in the rooms. Unless you know your pet and are fully aware of their behavior when they are not supervised, please don’t. Someone next door left their dog alone and I listened to tat dog bark for 5 straight hours. That is totally inconsiderate for others and cruel for the dog. Walls are quite thin at least in this building with doors joining the room to the back and next door, so, in theory your could book three rooms that are interconnected, which is great for big families but I think the walls were a little too thin for type of privacy I seek in a hotel I paid big bucks for. The place has a strong Wi-Fi signal in the main building with complementary hi-speed internet. Very convenient. Continental Breakfast was actually pretty good. They have a waffle station, fruit, juice, fresh coffee every 10 minutes, hard boiled eggs, cereal, milk, yogurt and pastries. All you need for a healthy breakfast and it is complementary. I travelled off high season in September which was great because the weather was cool, nice, low humidity, very comfortable and perfect for the beach. Also, I was able to take my dog everywhere and keep him in the car knowing that temperature was cool at all times with no danger for the dog at any time. He actually enjoyed all the outings even when he had to wait in the car at times. There are supermarkets, all kinds of shops and pharmacies nearby as well as numerous attractions so there is plenty to see and do. The beach is really nice and clean. I enjoy squeezing a work out in when I am on vacation. They give you a pass to go to a nice and fully equipped YMCA a mile down the road, which was a plus. Dog Owners: This is a very convenient hotel in the Outer Banks; there is a $20 fee per night per pet. Dogs are allowed on the beach at all times after Labor Day. Other rules apply during the summer. I do recommend this time of year as I was able to really enjoy my time with my dog. I even felt free to walk him off the leash at times as the beaches were pretty empty and people were nice. Now, my dog is fully trained in obedience and house behavior so I was 100% sure he and other people were safe. So, unless yours is too please stick to the law: Dogs are to be on a 6” leash at all times. Please be considerate with other people. Some guests tend to leave their pets untended in the rooms. Unless you know your pet and you are fully aware of their behavior when they are not supervised, please don’t. During my stay someone next door left their dog alone and I had to listen to that poor dog bark for 5 straight hours. That is totally inconsiderate for others and cruel for the dog.

    Very much enjoyed our stay at the Yancey. They offer good areas to walk our dog, and the beach access is easy from room to beach.

    This hotel was unsatisfactory. It looked as though it was ready to close down. It was supposedly under renovation. It should never have been open to the public.
