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 (including Outer Banks hotels in Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk) are varied and come in all price ranges. Hatteras hotels reflect the less gentrified, more real personality of Hatteras Island, though in the past couple of years, new and nice Outer Banks hotels have sprung.
Made up of national chains, locally owned properties and mom and pop establishments, accommodations on the Outer Banks feature amenities that range from an oceanfront location, indoor or outdoor pools, hot tubs, fish-cleaning station, play and picnic area, internet access or grills. And if Fido just insists on coming with you to the Outer Banks, some accommodations are pet friendly and welcome you and your four-legger.
