On the surface, when you drive up to the property, it appears to be just another Hilton Garden Inn. If you've ever been in one, you feel as though you've been in all of them. They have a rather standard layout. For many travelers like myself, it is this level of consistency, that I prefer when traveling to a new area.
However, did they ever "blow me away." Upon entering the hotel, you are able to look straight through to the ocean. Ok, they had me at check-in. You walk through their open eating area, straight to an outdoors garden and seating area with fire pits and all. Yes, I continued to walk to the pool, straight ahead. But then, there was a small path that took me to a deck with deck chairs and rockers, where I could just sit and look at the beach and beautiful ocean. I really wanted to say... " Someone wake me in the morning."
This hotel is absolutely perfect for the get-away, or for the business traveler who needs a few minutes to feel as though they are on vacation.
If you are traveling to the OBX and you want to stay at a hotel, I would make the Hilton Garden Inn the stop. By the way, very nice rooms, and staff. Yes, I finally got to the room.More
