John Yancey Oceanfront Inn History

A Family Favorite for Generations

OVER 59 YEARS IN BUSINESS

John Yancey Oceanfront Inn has been serving vacationers on the Nags Head beachfront since 1962.

John Yancey Inn has been a fixture on the Outer Banks as an original Nags Head hotel. It is an independent hotel, family-owned and operated, and a proud member of the Outer Banks community.

Original John Yancey Hotel - Nags Head Outer Banks.

While times have changed, the John Yancey Inn continues to offer same friendly customer service, in a family friendly beach environment. We continue to look for ways to improve the guest experience at “The Yancey”, including a renovation of Four Seasons Building in 2019, and Sea Building Building & Easy Beach Access Rooms in 2020, and starting on Main Building rooms in 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you on your next Outer Banks vacation or hotel getaway, and look forward to joining what families have enjoyed for generations.
