We spent a beautiful week at The Anchorage Inn on Ocracoke Island, NC. We had been warned about mosquitoes, but we saw few of them. Of course this summer has been rather dry, so that is most likely a factor. The room at The Inn was clean and nicely air conditioned without being freezing. The staff was very helpful and... More

This room was SPOTLESS. It smelled nice and the bedspread was obviously freshly laundered. The front desk people were so customer service oriented and quick to respond to the smoke alarm battery beeping. We stayed an additional night and hated going back to our other lodging in Kill Devil Hills. We are planning another visit in October!!

Flew into Ocracoke from Central Maryland, offered inclusive ride from the airport. Great staff, friendly and accommodating . Was able to use included loaner van for ground transportation. Pool and room top notch/ Ocracoke style. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again and or recommend to others.

Simple, basic hotel rooms. Clean, comfortable, average accessories. Responsive and friendly staff. Okay wifi, bare minimum breakfast. Incredibly great location in the heart of beautiful Ocracoke Village. The associated marina and harbor views add charm inexpressible. Nice little pool across the street keeps you cool, plenty of easy parking, views from 4th floor balcony will leave you speechless at sunset.... More

We stayed on the 2nd floor, first floor is for pets fyi. The room was clean but no frills, very basic, a bed, a laminate dresser, small tv, single bathroom sink, separate bathroom. It was a great location facing the harbor and literally a 2 minute drive to the ferry terminal to Cedar Island, Portsmouth, if that is on your... More

We stayed in a king room on the 4th floor, with our family of 4 (children 10 and 6). The hotel provided us with a roll away bed that was very comfy. The view was great, the pool was very nice. But the staff, by far was the best! They were very accommodating and helpful.

The room smelled so bad right when we walked in that we had to go buy a candle to try and cover it up. They should change the sign out front from "Pet Friendly" to "Smells like Urine." The bedspread looked like it hadn't been cleaned since they bought it in 1984. There was a buzzing sound in the room... More

My family and I have been vacationing in OBX for quite a few years now and last year was the first time we stayed overnight in Ocracoke. We stayed here last year for one night and again this year, but this time for 2 nights. We call it our "pre-vacation, vacation" before we go and stay in the rental house... More

We stayed here one night on a last minute trip (mid-week, late July). Upon checking in, they gave us a free upgrade. We were in a lower floor and she gave us a room with a view and a kitchenette. It was a nice clean room. Nothing fancy but it was clean and the beds were comfy. The hotel is... More

We had a 4th floor room so we had a great view of the Marina and sunsets. The rooms are good size, comfortable and clean. Parking is limited. This is a great place to stay if you are taking a charter out of the marina. Only thing it lacks is a small microwave and a mini-fridge. If they had that,... More
