Colony IV, Kill Devil Hills ... Similar Hotels?

Thinking of staying here a couple of nights in mid-May. Haven't been to Outer Banks for a long time, and wonder if anyone has experience with this hotel or similar ones in KDH/Nags Head area? I want very clean & reasonable ... will spend most of the time (wedding) away from the hotel so I don't need oceanfront view or a lot of amenities. Thanks!

It's certainly an older property that has seen lives under at least a couple of different names. Last I heard (few years back) a local couple owned and ran it. Tripadvisor reviews are really good and there are some pictures.

Sounds like it would meet your "clean" expectations. What are the rates?

obxgirl, we can get a poolside room for $85 night at that time. Apparently, the whole place has been refurbished, and it looks very nice to me for the money. After searching reviews on TA and other sites, for various hotels in the area, this place sounds the best. Do you know a really good breakfast place in the area, BTW? Thanks!

Just another consideration in Hags Head would be the Cavalier Motel: http://thecavaliermotel.com/

We have not stayed there but it gets terrific reviews and has been recommended here on Fodors. We stayed at the Owens Motel because we wanted an effiency for a week and we wanted oceanfront.It fulfilled our needs and I would recommend it but it is not what you need. Have fun!!!

The Cavalier looks really fun and beachy, cd. Don't know if I can talk our traveling partners into that one for this trip, but it will definitely be in our future! The views alone would be worth the money ... Thanks!

$85 per seems very reasonable.

Mid May could be very temperate or hot and humid. I'm sure the Colony IV has AC but given the age of the property it might be unit AC. Is that ok with you?

I thought of the Cavalier too, cd.

OBX overflows with heart stopping (eggs, sausage, grits, pancakes, etc) breakfast places. It's not my meal so I'm not one to advise. Nags Head Pier (and maybe Avalon Pier) serves breakfast with a view.
