Outer Banks Hotels, Inns, Bed and Breakfasts & Campgrounds

Finding perfect Outer Banks accommodations is a breeze.



Looking for a luxurious five-star Outer Banks hotel? They’re here. Or are you more in the mode of one of those classic, old-school Outer Banks motels, some of which have been serving vacationers since the 1950s and ‘60s? You’ll find them from Ocracoke all the way up to Kitty Hawk. Corolla hotels and Duck hotels are far out-numbered by the Outer Banks vacation rental homes in those areas, but the properties that are there are absolutely top notch. The Nags Head hotels (as well as Kill Devil Hills hotels and Kitty Hawk hotels) are varied and come in all price ranges. Manteo hotels are split between well-maintained, family-owned motels, inviting bed and breakfasts and inns. Hatteras hotels reflect the less gentrified, more real personality of Hatteras Island, though in the past couple of years, new and nice Hatteras hotels have sprung. Ocracoke hotels are like the place itself—individual and memorable.

Outer Banks Hotels & Bed and Breakfasts

Outer Banks Vacation Rentals

The most popular form of Outer Banks accommodation is the rental home, ranging from two bedrooms on the sound to 10 or more bedrooms on the oceanfront, some luxurious, some simple. Most of the houses have every amenity you could imagine needing or wanting media rooms, several master suites, pools, hot tubs, gourmet kitchens, game rooms, fireplaces, internet access — and availability that ranges from a weekend stay to an extended vacation. Price depends on size, the proximity to the water and the season. Many local rental companies manage houses in every area of the Outer Banks. Find out more in our Outer Banks Vacation Rentals section.

So, whether you’re a honeymooner, family, business person or need reunion-sized capabilities, you’ll have options in this resort community. And we’re glad to have you!
