I was on my way to Morehead City to do some scuba diving, and wanted to stay at an independent place rather than the nondescript chain hotels I often stay at. I booked online the day before, and as soon as I walked into the office, the manager already knew my name without me having given her any information. Check-in... More

We stayed for a week in the winter to work on our sailboat. Very nice staff, helpful and accommodating. Room was very cozy and warm during our cold stay. Not too far from downtown Beaufort. Right on the ICW, which would be really nice to watch the boats in the warmer weather. Looks like a lot of improvements have been... More

Robin made our stay delightful. She was very helpful with where to eat, places to go & things to do. The room is basic but clean and cozy. We were looking for a place we could have our dog. They take pets.

Our recent choice for an overnight stay before catching the early ferry to Ocracoke might turn into a future weekend getaway location. Spotless motel with first class service (Robin) and a great bed. The continental breakfast offered several healthy choices along with the standard bagel and cream cheese. We don't have pets, but we'll return to this little "people"-friendly gem.... More

We had a very early ferry departure and needed a pet friendly room. We found both in the Core Creek Lodge. Our room was clean and Robin gave us excellent directions to the ferry that cut some time off of our drive. There was plenty of walking space available for our dogs to stretch their legs after being in the... More

Thank you for the positive review! We're glad you found us and that we were able to assist you and your pets. Lots of folks enjoy taking the ferries to the outer banks and as a pet lover, I know it's made more special when your pets can go as well. We're glad you found us convenient, quiet and friendly...

Thank you for such a positive review! We enjoyed having you both stay with us as you continued your project at Bock Marina. Your suggestion for a vehicle to go to Beaufort 8 miles away would be nice. I know Bock Marina offers a shuttle service to folks with their boats stored there, and often drive these owners to our... More

I can't wait for the rest of the buildings and rooms to catch up with how well renovated the community breakfast area is. The buildings are old and you can tell by looking, but everything from the rooms to the grounds are well kept. Shower was clean as well as the room when I showed up late in the evening.... More

There have been so many renovations to the grounds and individual units, and they are still on going. We love that you appreciated our gathering room. We have recently begun to... More

The Core Creek Lodge is now our honey hole for fishing (don't tell anyone)! We (3 guys) rented a single room for the weekend and had a great time. The staff was extremely friendly, room was clean and location was perfect. For fisherman, you have a private boat ramp (the boat ramp is probably the only difficult aspect of Core... More

My wife and I were in the same group as "1950traveler" and we had a completely different experience. We arrived very late and found the room to be clean and welcoming, and just as advertised. The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning worked fine, and the decor, while sparse, was pleasant and attractive. This is an older lodge in a... More
