Our annual fishing trip to the OBX. The Dolphin Inn was PERFECT! Very friendly staff and it's awesome for fisherman! Right on the beach and within walking distance to Jennette's Pier and the famous Sam and Omies!! Thanks again! See ya next year!

Great place to stay for a night or two. Excellent customer service. Allowed us to check in real early. I enjoyed the stay.

Dolphin Oceanfront Motel, Nags Head
The sheets were covered in sand, I wonder if they were even cleaned before we got the room. No microwave in room.

Great little motel on the beach
Spotless with comfy beds. Small rooms but doable....just sleep there anyway. Small bathroom would not work if you are too hefty but worked fine for us. Perfect location for running up coast one day and into Manteo another. Not far from anything we did.
