We stayed at the Inn at Corolla Light April 22nd and 23rd. We chose them specifically because they are pet friendly. We had a very nice room that was clean and nicely appointed. The furniture isn't brand new or fancy but the room was comfortable. (The bed was a little firm for my liking but fine). The staff was great...friendly... More

My wife & I were first time visitors to the Outer Banks, and visited the week before the official "season" started. We enjoyed every second of our stay at the Inn at Corolla Light, and were very impressed with the friendly & knowledgeable staff. The owner will go out of her way to introduce herself and make sure everything is... More

This is a very nice inn at the northern end of Corolla, about a mile from the Currituck Beach Lighthouse. We chose this inn for its location - close to the lighthouse, so the long pier out over the sound and the gazebo at the end were an unexpected treat. We were there at the end of March and the...

My husband & I ended up staying at the Inn at Corolla Light by chance, after the VRBO home we booked ended up being a complete dump. We had travelled with our dog, and were concerned that we wouldn't find other accommodations that were "pet friendly". Knowing we probably wouldn't find another rental home in such short notice, we stopped... More

This is not a Hyatt or a Hampton - so if you are looking for that there is a Hampton Corolla. We picked this place because it is so close to the real Corolla and this is where we'd stay again. The views at sunset are incredible. It is not fancy - so if that is your thing this is... More

Girls weekend at the Inn at Corolla was a perfect location for a brief weekend getaway in late October. The Inn was clean, comfortable and the staff welcoming. Right on the water (bay side), places to sit outside to enjoy a glass of wine and catch up. Rooms were reasonably priced and if you called to book they gave you... More

AMAZING!!! I read the reviews – good, bad, and indifferent, but The Inn at Corolla Light provided one of the best off season visits ever.

Wow! Thanks for that great review! We could not agree more, Fall is the perfect time to visit. Our fireplaces and jacuzzi's (in room and outside) make it the place to be! Plus on our milder days, bike rides or nature walks are still the rage. We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit and we hope you will... More
