The owners allowed their son to have a party all night in the room above us. All of the guests were kept awake. One of the guest in another room had to get up at 5:00 a.m. and asked the son and the people at the party to please be quiet (this was at 1:00 a. m.) and they completely... More

My husband and I visited Ocracoke Island for one night and had a great time. The Inn was old and tired, but we didn't complain as we were just there over night and it met our needs. I had called to book the hotel via phone on 8/11 for that Friday night, and was charged for the room at that... More

Arrived Labor Day weekend for a three day vacation with a few surprises. First off we have stayed at the island inn many times and been pleased but this time was different. We arrived and got our key and walked in to find no bath tissue and very few towels. We called a few times because a note was on... More

We had reservations at another hotel for Wed-Sun of July 4th weekend, but were wishing we'd gotten one with a pool. We have 3 small children and although it was last minute, I called and spoke with Cee. She had just gotten a cancellation on a 2 bedroom villa. We booked in and drove down from Norfolk, VA the next... More

If you are looking for a historical building to stay in while you visit the wonderful village of Ocracoke, one has to consider the Island Inn. Now, if you take everything else in to consideration, you better move on. This is definitely not a place to consider. When I paid in advance for my room, I knew I would have... More

We rented three three of the condos and two of the interior hotel rooms. We had an excellent stay. We found them to be clean, efficient and inviting. The staff could not have been nicer or more accomodating. We will definitely return.
