My wife and I wanted to get away from the hustle and bussel of Va Beach. Very crowded that week so we packed up and headed to Corolla, NC. When we got there they had one room left. We took it and it was LOVELY! Room was beautiful, very clean, with a fireplace. Stormed that night and with the lights... More

We were visiting friends and began looking for a hotel at the last minute. The Inn at Corolla Light was the only one left near Corolla that had rooms available. After speaking to the manager he generously upgraded us to their best suite for the same price as a regular room. The Brinley suite had a king bed, kitchen, dining... More

The folks that run this inn are soooo nice! They do their best to accommodate you. We appreciate their flexibility. Our room was very big as was the bathroom. It was clean with nice amenities. It was a bit of a walk with luggage. The folks there told us in advance the room was on the third floor with no... More

Great place to stay, very relaxing, nice staff. Also like the view of the lighthouse. The room is great with a good bed that is pretty comfortable. I like that it is near the wild horse attractions. Also very quite not a lot of noise from busy travelers.

Had a fabulous suite, room 25, overlooking the sound and just down the hall from the deck. Room was large with lovely furnishings and great view.

Room 44 room was very attractive and we really enjoyed the deck! Unfortunately, I did find the bed incredibly hard and uncomfortable and the bathroom inconveniently designed and in need of a deep cleaning. At 5'2", it was difficult climbing into the whirlpool bath to take a shower. I admit, I err on the side of caution after breaking both... More

We've stayed at the Inn several times but not for several years, until this month, because the conditions and service had deteriorated to the point that we were paying premium prices for sub-par accommodations and service. The Inn is now under new management and has regained its old luster. Our sound front room had been freshly painted and refurbished; the... More
