Enjoyed the stay. We were there in the off season so the rate was great. The room was very adequate, as we just needed a place to sleep and shower. It was clean, updated bathroom. Slept great. They had bicycles, would have liked to have got to use one of them, but ran out of time.

We stayed here in Dec. Will have to agree that the walls are a little thin. Plus anyone moving early on the porch did make a lot of noise.We had a full Kitchen in our room. Room was very clean. Staff were only there part time due to it being winter.They do have a newer wing that has no porch.

Pony Island is a cute, clean hotel, had no problem with the staff or room itself.... but the "sleep quality" here was very poor due to excessive noise. Maybe because the walls are thin (I could hear people talking in the room next door at what seemed like normal conversation volume), or the wooden porch outside conveys noise easily (lots... More

Stayed there in December 2013 on a honeymoon re-visit, first time was 1977! Good, basic room without frills. Room was as advertised and cost was reasonable for off-season, front desk lady was helpful and friendly. Would stay there again.

We had limited choice of where to stay in Ocracoke in October, and the Pony Island Motel seemed to be the best of the bunch. The room itself was clean, but smelt very musty, and the décor was dated and tired. The bathroom was very small but was modern and totally adequate. We had to wait a looooong time to... More

While the room was dated it was smart and clean, with new bath. Room was plenty big enough for a queen bed, so not sure why the bed is just a double. But, main thing that let the motel down was the absence of WiFi, despite being advertised. As the office was not manned after 9pm, there was no way... More

Visitors Center in Beaufort recommended we stay at the Pony Island Motel but we had to hurry in order to catch the last ferry. We made the ferry and arrived at the Motel without a reservation but the staff was great in getting us settled in. There were not many rooms available but the one we had was very clean... More

This is my fav place to stay in Ocracoke. I prefer the old section, near the office. Have stayed in several rooms, all are comfortable, etc. A decent size, all appliances work, etc. Love the location on the island - near everything. The Adirondack chairs on the walkways are great for sitting and watching the world go by. Very nice... More

Friendly helpful front desk, lovely room with diner/restaurant next door. Would have given this motel five stars if they had provided tea and coffee making facilities. It is the only motel we have come across which has failed to do so. Adjoining diner only opened at 7am for breakfast and again at 5pm for evening meals so no chance to... More

We were very satisfied with this motel. We arrived later in the evening (about 8p) from the ferry. The hotel attendant was very friendly and helpful in assisting us. The room was clean, spacious, and within walking distance to several restaurants. We only stayed one night, but we would be comfortable staying in this motel for several days. It is... More
