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

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. Ants... More

We are sincerely sorry that you were disappointed in your visit to the Inn at Corolla. As a first time visitor, we actually upgraded you to a courtyard junior suite versus the more economical cozy inn saver king that you booked. We can assure you that you were not overcharged. We are shocked that you state that you did not... More

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. Unfortunately, the tree does shed from time to time which is a negative but the shade that it provides, we feel, out weighs the negative. We try to clean the pool... More

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.

We loved the romantic setting, right on the sound side in Corolla. We took advantage of the free bicycles and access to swimming pools and of course the beaches are spectacular. The room was very clean and spacious and the hosts very gracious.

This is a wonderful Inn and perfect when you need a mini vacation. We had never travelled with our dog before, so I was a little unsure what to expect. We had a great /clean efficiency on the Sound. The grounds were gorgeous & we had access to all the Corolla Light amenities. Our dog went swimming everyday, had easy... More

It had a musty smell that took a while to get used too. I think the source was the bathroom. I later noticed that... More
