We stayed here for one night before catching the early ferry from Cedar Island to Ocracoke. It met our needs admirably: it might not be quite so suitable for a longer holiday visit to Morehead City. The Inn is most convenient for the highway, shops and restaurants, as well as being well appointed and well maintained. Our room was of... More

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.
