Don’t touch that cursor! You’ve arrived at THE information source for Nags Head hotels (as well as Kill Devil Hills hotels and Kitty Hawk hotels). These descriptions are written by Outer Banks locals who know the area well and provide accurate, up-to-date info. Plus, every single Outer Banks hotel is included on these sites—you can jump from this Nags Head site to Hatteras, Duck, Corolla, Roanoke Island and Ocracoke via the tabs above. So, sit back, relax and be confident in planning your Outer Banks hotel stay.
One thing to note first-off is that the moniker “Nags Head” is often used to describe the entire beach area made up of Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk. And, in truth, visitors probably won’t realize when they’ve left one town and entered another—it’s all one long stretch. But each of these individual towns and their accommodations actually have distinct personalities. Nags Head hotels sport only one national chain but are abundant with long-loved, locally owned properties that have been welcoming families for decades. The list of Kill Devil Hills hotels includes the most national chains of any Outer Banks hotel list, but you’ll also find plenty of the treasured beachy motor inns that this area used to be known for that have been regularly upgraded and renovated. Kitty Hawk hotels are perhaps the most varied, with options ranging from a multi-story Hilton to several small motels to campgrounds and RV parks.
If you’ve arrived at this Nags Head Hotels section after browsing through the entire site, you’ll know that you can also find complete information here on all things related to an Outer Banks vacation: Corolla Restaurants, Hatteras Fishing, Nags Head Recreation, Roanoke Island Attractions, Ocracoke Weddings, Kill Devil Hills Vacation Rentals, Duck Shopping—and you could substitute any town name with any chapter name. But if you’ve come here directly for Nags Head Hotels information, rest assured that you’ve found the place where you’ll learn about every single Outer Banks hotels option. Every single one.
One more note to help you feel like you know this area well: On this main stretch of middle Outer Banks beaches, from Kitty Hawk down to Nags Head, there are only two main roads that run north to south and parallel to each other. The vast majority of Nags Head hotels (as well as Kill Devil Hills hotels and Kitty Hawk hotels) are found on or between these two highways. The big five-lane road, aka Croatan Highway, aka U.S. 158, is called The Bypass by locals. The other two-lane road, aka Virginia Dare Trail, aka N.C. Highway 12, is referred to as The Beach Road by those who live here. These simple names are just easier to remember!
