We had a reservation for two nights, but because we could not visit the Atlantic graveyard (because of the holiday) we decided to go back home a day ahead. It was too late to change our reservation, but the person at the reception told us that if they would be able to rent the room, they would refund us, which... More

I returned after three years and still loved my room. Location and the view are simply perfect. I stayed in the main building that faces the harbor for four nights. (Two double beds for $650).The older building is perfect if you are just using it as a bed for your fishing day trips. Caveat: the kitchenette has no utensils; No... More

My friend and I were on a birdwatching trip and stayed at the inn for a total of four nights. Our room, upstairs in the newer building, had a balcony offering a spectacular view of the marina and harbor. The room was exceptionally comfortable. Ours, like the others, had a small kitchen. The inn's home page advertises this as a... More

As a local, we don't get out much once season starts, we work and go home. I have never been to the Breakwater in all the years i have lived here. It was outstanding! The fresh catch was tile, we had it blackened, it was delish! I had the chicken roquefort, the chef made a special one for me, as... More

We stayed here for our 35th wedding anniversary and it could not have been better. Nice and quiet and what a grand view from the balcony of our room of the sound and a wonderful marina. It was very entertaining watching the fishing boats go out and come back in during the evenings to see their daily catches. The water... More

Before I bought the Groupon for this Inn, I did not read the reviews, I didn't even read the reviews until after we got home. I was really surprised at all the negative reviews. We stayed here the latter part of the last weekend in April for 2 nights. I am very particular with where I stay, as you can... More

I just arrived back from a short 3 day/2 night stay at The Breakwater Inn. The rooms have 2 very comfortable beds, a refrigerator and microwave. Sunset can be viewed as you relax on the balcony. Clean, comfortable accomodations. Staff were friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a place to just relax and unwind then this is what... More

My wife and I visited April 21 to 23 from our Durham NC home to get away after a long period of not traveling. We also used a Groupon offer. Our room was clean and comfortable, and as noted in other reviews, staff was friendly and helpful. My understanding from speaking with one of the staff is the main building... More

We stayed here in April 2015 for 2 nights. I found the Breakwater from a Groupon deal they were offering. I was NOT disappointed. It was not in a busy area of the Island so it was quiet. It's only about 1 mile from the Ocracoke Island Ferry which was convenient. This hotel is located on the sound side of... More
