We stayed in the Knight Suite and it was wonderful. Spent two nights in peace and quiet with a wonderful view of the sound. We were able to use the bikes they have and took a wonderful bike ride to the light house. The service is excellent and the front desk staff is extremely helpful. Nice pool and hot tub.... More

Room was large, bright and cheery. Had fridge, microwave, Jacuzzi tub and 2 clean, comfy Q beds. Continental breakfast included was great too. Was able to see the sunset over the bay and sit by the pool/hot tub enjoying our wine and watching it get dark. Very peaceful, friendly and staff willing to accommodate your needs. I liked the fact... More

Not being a fan of B&B's we overlooked staying there last year. Too bad. This place is a first rate inn/motel. We're happy to be here this year. Clean, well decorated, great staff, and what a setting. Given a choice between this place and a nearby chain motel - don't look any further than this place.

Have been to Outer Banks several times but not to Corolla before. This Inn is in a great location and one of the few places in Corolla set up for a couple rather than a large group. Renovated a couple fo years ago; the rooms are spacious and decently appointed. By all means, try to get a second floor waterfront... More

My husband and I visited outer banks for our 20th anniversary. I researched and decided on the Inn at Corolla Light. We were on a limited budget, so reluctantly we decided against the higher priced sound-view room. What a nice surprise to find we'd been upgraded! Our view was spectacular! We loved the hot tub, the sunsets, the fireplace in... More

Unfortunately, we were surprised at the condition of our room! First of all, it smelled very musty/moldy! There wasn't even any hand soap... They did supply it the next day though. The paint was chipping off the window and we could see what looked like black mold. There was an exposed light bulb over the shower/tub... Pretty sure that is... More

We are currently researching a better location for the bathroom mirror per your suggestion. At the time, we did not feel it appropriate to do any touch up painting... More

Stayed 3 nights in August 2014. We really enjoyed having excursions at our fingertips. We took advantage of jet skis, kayaks, and tubing. We enjoyed having a pool, hot tub, complimentary bicycles, and a shared deck to sit on. We never used the complimentary breakfast as there was a great bakery (Northern Lights Bakery) down the street with breakfast at... More

We don't know how to reconcile our experience with other reviewers. For $250/night we were surprised to find the decking weathered gray and splintering. Signs warned us to wear shoes for our own safety. The pool had floating debre. The room was musty; the bathroom had pink/orange mold around the baseboards. Webs and spiders were all over the decking.

We stayed for two nights and overall we were happy with the hotel. The room was quiet, spacious and comfortable although a bit musty. The shared terrace was nice for reading a book and a glass of wine in the evening. The breakfast was very good. We did not use the facilities that were offered with the wristband – just... More

Thank you for staying at the Inn. We were happy to note that you enjoyed your visit. As you noticed, our outdoor pool is shaded by a large tree.

we traveled with little ones and this was a really romantic hotel - but we were made feel very welcome by all the other travelers. What struck me the most is the loyalty- everyone had been there MANY times before and absolutely LOVED Corolla Light and loved the Inn.
