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. My husband and I are regulars in the OBX every November; and while we normally bring the whole family, this time it was just the 2 of us to celebrate our 23rd anniversary. The Inn... More

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

Cute little gem of a place. The staff was extremely friendly and shared wonderful insights on places to visit, eat and beach. The room was surprisingly spacious, extremely clean and provided wonderful sound sunsets. Each morning a continental breakfast was provided. Our stay was in mid October and the weather was wonderful! A little to cool to swim in the... More

Lovely place. The staff very friendly and helpful. Immaculately clean rooms, rate includes delicious continental breakfast, internet, free bicycles, free access to a full health club and an incredible sound front location. Walkable to corolla lighthouse and ocean, and I'm older and not very fit. My room had a fantastic gas fireplace, very cozy in the fall. I highly recommend... More

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.

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.
