We pulled up at the Colonial Inn after a long six hour car drive looking forward to stretching our legs and relaxing by the pool. Boy were we wrong! From the dirty steps leading up to the room and the drained pool, (they said we could use the one a mile down the road) we lasted no more than ten... More

We stayed in a double queen kitchenette, which had all we needed, (we like to eat out and cook in when we feel like it).The stove was gas,which we like but haven't done in a while, and the fridge was ice cold :-). The staff was very accommodating and very friendly. I had a few questions when I booked, then... More

Room 30 was perfect for us for our week in the Outer Banks! We got married under the pier and brought two of our dogs. It's a very laid back motel, and may not be suitable for more demanding people. But for us, it was just right. Clean and simple, friendly staff, and you cannot beat the location. I fell... More

It was my first trip to the Outer Banks to photograph a wedding of two dear friends. They were staying here and wanted to get married under the pier, so I booked a room here too. If you're looking for good access to the fishing pier, this is the place! I opted for an "upgrade" to an oceanfront room and... More

Had a standard room. Staff was friendly and loved the fact that the car was parked in front of the room. Easy access to the beach, but no lighting so bring a flashlight if you plan to go out on the beach at night. The deck is nice and relaxing to read a book or eat lunch. Even tho we're... More

We rushed to get to the Colonial Inn due to impending bad weather so we had to book an extra night that was really an extra couple of hours. We decided to book a basic room (due to cost and the fact that we were arriving at 3:30am) and then move to our regularly booked room the next morning. If... More

Just returned from a 4 night trip to OBX where I stayed at the Colonial Inn. I stayed from 12/30/14 - 1/3/15 and an ocean front room with a fantastic view. The front desk was pleasant, room was clean, bed was comfortable, and the motel is located right on the beach. I couldn't ask for anything more. Even though it... More
