Room had full views of the sound. Gorgeous! Breakfast was delicious. Bikes that were included in the room rate was a huge bonus. Pool and hot tub was great! Very short bike ride (or walk) to the beach! The property is shared with a jet ski rental place, which attracts many visitors that are not staying at the Inn. This... More

I so want to write a better review because the people that staff this resort are some of the nicest, most accommodating individuals i've had the pleasure of meeting during my travels, but there were a few nagging issues that negatively impacted our experience. First the positives: - the staff as previously noted, from JC who manned the phones, to... More

Enjoyed our stay. A little outdated and breakfast was not too good but inn is quiet, clean, and relaxing. Pool very nice. Pier very nice would stay there again. One note.. AC was a bit noisy We were told we could move to another room, but that room was at top of steep stairs so we declined

We took a room without a view but loved it for 2 nights. The dock on the bay, the pool, the walking paths, conversations with guests at breakfast, the doggy guests...it all made for a lovely stay. We were sorry to have some rain but really enjoyed the feeling of the inn. And wow, what great sunsets! Loved seeing dogs... More

The hotel is very outdated, but clean. We got a room with a pull-out bed so me and one of my children could sleep on while my husband and other child slept in the king bed. The mattress on the pull-out was very uncomfortable, it felt like the springs were coming out of the very thin padding. I actually scratched... More

Thank you for staying at the Inn. We are sorry that the accommodations were not comfortable for you. Had you stayed more than the one night we would have been able to make other arrangements or improvements. We searched every room on property and did not find any other non-dairy creamers with the same markings that were in your room.... More

Ok where do i even begin! Soo overpriced our original room was small and had no windows, when we asked to change we were charged and moved down a dim lit spider filled utility hall. Our room there wasn't much better. There was so much mold and we killed 4-5 spiders in the room. The only good thing is the... More

Thank you for staying at the Inn. We are located on the Currituck Sound in a nature preserve and therefore there are spiders in the area. We do everything within our powers to eliminate as many spider webs as possible and work very closely with a local pest control company in order to ensure the comfort of our guests. Not... More

Whilst the location on the sound side of Corolla is perfect the hotel room we had was very, very tired looking. Decor was dated and rather worn although the bed was very comfortable. We expected to pay a premium for the location but felt disappointed by such low quality.

We stayed at this inn for 4 nights in July for a family reunion. It was the perfect alternative to spending a full week at a huge house with 25 other people. Our rooms were overlooking the sound, and they were quiet, comfortable and nicely furnished. We had some kitchen amenities which seem to vary by room but included a... More
