Enjoyed our stay at Pony Island Motel. Our office side room was very clean and comfortable. Customer service was exceptional - really went out of their way to assist. Nice location for the activities that interested us. Plan to book again in the fall.

We did not make any hotel reservations before leaving for the Outer Banks but after realizing we would not make the ferry from Ocracoke to Cedar Island, while on the ferry from Hatteras to Ocracoke we knew we would have to stay in Ocracoke. Doubting there would be any vacancies anyplace in peak season, the first hotel we called was... More

We stayed here 1 night in June 2014 as we made our way down the Outer Banks. Check in was great - very pleasant lady. Answered our questions about the ferry times for the next morning and where we should go to reserve. This motel is very good value for the price. The bed could have been better as it... More

Without going in to too much rhetoric, let me summarise what this place is about. It is ideally located for town. The reception area is large, bright and breezy and the lady who booked us in was absolutely charming. Our room, which I understand is at the more modern pool end, was roomy, well furnished and spotlessly clean. The swimming... More

I’ve stayed here at least three times previously, and to me it’s the best choice on the island, or one of the best. It’s close to some of the best restaurants, and a 10-minute walk at most from the village. I’ve only stayed on the newer side (the “pool side”) and those rooms are clean and airy with refrigerators.

We enjoyed ourselves immensely at the Pony Island Motel. We must say how clean and comfortable the rooms were. This was our 2nd time in Ocracoke and I can say this will be our new place to come back to year after year. The woman who ran the front desk couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. They also have... More

Stayed in early April on our way back north. Very dependable motel, clean with good beds. Got two rooms with kitchenette facilities that were very useful. Location is great, easy to get around village from there. Will plan on staying there again.

We stayed here in March and liked it a lot and will definately be back. The room we had was on the second floor, like others have said it was very clean and spacious. We like to look for shells on Ocracoke so we don't spend much time in the room and this was perfect. We had stayed at another... More

We planned a quick trip over to Ocracoke, however the weather turned rough and the ferry stopped running for the night. We had to rent a room. We stopped at the first hotel we came saw. The desk clerk was very pleasant and informative. The room was very clean. There was a small refrigerator in the room. Very reasonable rates... More

My family of four stayed in the new section of the 2nd floor. We were able to check-in early. The room was clean and spacious. Parking was right out front. We did have to walk-up steps, but they were wide and well constructed. We rented bikes from the motel, which may not have been the best choice. They had seen... More
