Outer Banks Hotels

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.

Outer Banks Hotels & Bed and Breakfasts

If you want a quieter, quainter experience, there are exceptional Outer Banks bed and breakfast inns in Corolla, Duck, Kitty Hawk, Nags Head and Hatteras. But the bed and breakfasts options found in Manteo Hotels and Ocracoke Hotels are the most varied and well known. Some of the Outer Banks hotels are elegant, some are quirky and fun. All of them will afford you an experience that speaks more to the historic soul of the area. Just like the towns themselves, these hotel options are individual and memorable.

Prefer Outer Banks camping? This area offers full-blown camping mega-resorts. Or, tent and trailer campers looking to get back to nature will enjoy the no-frills National Park Service Outer Banks campgrounds.
