I stayed at Scholars Inn for the first time and I will definitely be back. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were plentiful! The room I had, the Henry Beacher Suite, was very nicely decorated but it was the only room that did not have an in-suite bath! It did have a private bath in the hall which... More

If your standards demand super modern accommodations then the Scholars is not for you. If you like something that does not conform to the generally soulless experiences afforded by the modern motel, then you might be interested. This was the first leg of our Big Beer Adventure (East) from Chicago to the OBX and we were happy that Scholars is... More

This was the second time I've stayed at Scholars Inn. The first time I had to leave so early in the morning that I did not get to have the breakfast, and always wondered what I missed. I missed a lot! On this visit, I invited two local guests to join me ($15 for each extra person), and we all... More

Avoid this property. As a location and facility Scholar’s Inn is adequate. We stayed there several times. We will never be back. With regard to the handling of reservations and booking, you are taking high risk. Confirmed reservations may suddenly disappear. This was my experience. Confirmed reservations for a major milestone event for ourselves and another couple suddenly were no... More

Very friendly staff, convenient location, and great brunch! Just an overnight stay to attend a wedding, but wish we could have stayed longer! Large, comfortable room, although without an en suite bathroom we had to use one down the hall that was dedicated to our room with a separate key. Since we were there over a Saturday night and they... More

Don't let the grounds distract you. Although the grounds may look a bit unkempt, what's inside the B&B is worth it. Spent four days here, and the staff couldn't have been more hospitable! Welcoming and more than accommodating! I was made to feel right at home. This was my first B&B experience, and i think it spoiled me. I hope... More

Terrific bed and breakfast adjacent to an also pretty wonderful restaurant of the same name. We loved our room; beds were comfortable (an issue for me), everything was spotlessly clean, great breakfast with a good range of possible dishes. We will be back!

Great price for a wonderful room-stayed in the AFJ Suite- enjoyed a great breakfast on the patio. The staff was great and for a small price we were able to have our child meet us at the Inn for breakfast.

We stayed in Annie's Room which is just off the kitchen (not a good location due to morning noise). Just a basic room with a tiny bath. This is a house in back of the restaurant. Grounds/parking area are not well maintained and the house has a sort of worn appearance. Friendly staff and nice breakfast

My family stayed here for my wedding last weekend, and we also had our reception dinner at the Scholar's Inn Restaurant right next door to the Bed and Breakfast.They went above and beyond for me and my family to make sure they were comfortable and that the dinner was perfect. I strongly recommend both the B&B and Restaurant to anyone... More
