This is a really good place to stay. Very conveniently located within walking distance to the village for restaurants and shops. I love the set up with the very nice swimming pool in the front of the property and rooms behind it and across the road where there is also a restaurant. The room we had was a good size... More

With four kids it's hard to find a place where your can legally fit into one room. They have three rooms which accommodate six people. The staff was very friendly. The room was fairly large,very clean and up to date. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was very clean and had a good shower. The pool was very warm... More

We found ourselves on Ocracoke and stayed at the PIM for one night. We had looked at two other hotels already and we're getting tired. The room was very clean and the beds were good. The bath had been updated which was nice. The towels are small and thin. No coffee maker in the room nor coffee in the lobby.... More

What a great place to stay, very family friendly. Comfortable rooms, very clean and cozy. Breakfast is only a few steps away, next door is a dinner, yummm!!! I believe its a family run business that cares about a quality place to stay. They turned us onto a great place to go clamming....

My wife and I have stayed here several times in the last few years, and we have always been treated very well and received excellent service. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff very friendly and helpful.
