We enjoyed our stay at Core Creek. It was just me, the mom, traveling with my 2 boys. I am on a budget so I was looking for something CLEAN and affordable. Being used to the typical chain hotel, this motel took a little minute to adjust to. But it was clean and very functional! Everything is a little older... More

Manager was nice. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Unfortunately the room had a musty smell and the shower barely worked. The place was quiet and coffee maker in the room. Parking was free.

We stayed here because there was not a 3 night minimum on labor day weekend. The managers were very friendly and made sure we were happy with our room. We stated in a basic queen room, although there were larger rooms to choose from. It was small but clean. The continental breakfast was very nice. We also enjoyed playing with... More

The place was clean, inexpensive, and quiet. It is a few miles from town. That wasn't a problem for me. The couple that run the place were two of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. I slept well. That's all I asked for. It can be a bit difficult to find if coming from the bridge side.

Stayed at Core Creek 3 years ago and just getting around to review it. Room was very clean. Management was very helpful. Location was good, but boat launch could use a facelift (keep in mind this was three years ago). Quick boat trip down to Beaufort or Shackleford. I'd recommend it for fisherman.

the manager was very nice. The room smelled musky, the shower was broken, so we were moved. the second room smelled and the refrigerator had a shrimp smell that transferred to our drinks.Ok for fishermen i guess

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
