We made a last minute decision to visit someone staying on Emerald Isle. Our stay was only for one night, but the impression made will definitely be longer. Since we have a dog, it does limit our choices for accommodations. In this case though, I would stay here even if we didn't have the dog. The entire staff was so... More

We have been traveling throughout the southeast USA for the past month and have stayed at a number of HIE; Morehead City did not measure up to the cleanliness of other HIE's on this trip. Service was fine, breakfast was good, sleep quality fine but the room (307) was dusty. There was a bit of a musty smell in the... More

Made a last minute reservation for one night stay while in the area. Pleasantly surprised at the nice, fresh, clean room, attentive staff, and excellent breakfast for such a low cost. Will definitely stay here again when in Morehead City.

This is a pet friendly hotel with ten rooms to accommodate pets. The staff was very friendly and like pets themselves. Our stay was just a passing through with our pet, the room was clean and did not smell of dog. The location seemed to be safe. The bathroom was very clean and well equipped with usual items.

My fiancee and I took our first trip with our newborn baby to Emerald Isle for a friend's wedding and this is where we stayed.
