Thank you for selecting Core Creek Lodge for your stay last weekend. I am so sorry that there was an issue with this tub. We had a larger guest recently in this room and believe that may have contribute to the issue with the drain. We are very appreciative to you bringing this to our attention and being so gracious...

Door didn't close on the bathroom. There were all sorts of hairs on the bathroom floor and the floor in the room itself was filthy. I was afraid to walk on it without shoes. Bugs were in the tub, alive. The neon light outside the window kept the room like daylight all night long making it difficult to sleep. The... More

First let me say that I appreciate you sharing about your stay at Core Creek Lodge. But I have to say that I'm baffled as to why you would post all this on line, and not take a moment during your stay to bring any of this to our attention. I personally would NEVER stay in a room that I... More

Beautiful place to stay. A must for anyone who loves the water or just wants to try something different than a hotel room. Close to downtown Beaufort. Thanks Robin and Richard, I plan on returning for another week.

We are delighted that you loved the floating condo! Nothing like staying directly on the ICW and watching all the tall sailboats, yachts, tugs and barges pass right before you. Let me know what week you want this coming year and hopefully you won't have to rearrange your week of vacation because of other bookings like this year! We're very... More

Perfect place to lay your head at night. Comes with the basics and clean place to stay. Best prices during memorial weekend. Enjoyed the breakfast and the two cats that hang out. Felt more like a family room. The AC cannot be adjusted so it was nice to have a ceiling fan in the room so it wasnt too hot.... More

Nothing fancy but very clean and the lady in registration was nice and very helpful. Stayed there one evening before ferry ride to Hatteras. I'd probably try to find some place closer but wouldn't hesitate staying there again.

We stayed there last week for five nights and it was very basic. After a full day on a boat in Beaufort Inlet it had everything we needed, a bed, a toilet, a shower, and an air conditioner. Important for fishing and boating they had a great commercial ice making machine to fill your boat cooler with each morning. The... More

We needed a place to stay for the night near Beaufort, NC. This place is very affordable and was very clean. The staff I met at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. It's a simple place to stay that I would definitely stay in again when passing through that area.
