I have stayed here multiple time with our large family and love the island and all the July 4th festivities. BUT!!!!! recently we had to cancel our yearly family vacation due to family emergencies and called months in advance to cancel to receive our deposit back and over 6 months later we still have NOT received our 1200 dollar deposit....

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

My husband and I had booked a room for a Friday & Saturday because my brother in law was getting married & everything else was packed full. Once we pulled up I was already thinking "What? " in the back of my mind. My husband and I went to go check into the front desk but there was no one... 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.

Sadly, I had already made a reservation at a hotel in Kill Devil Hills for New Years Eve, before driving through Ocracoke. The Island Inn was offering an affordable off season rate, and advertised being pet friendly. I don't go anywhere without my dogs, but I have a horrible time finding places to stay. I made a reservation for the... More

I'm not one to write reviews often, but as new user of trip adviser, I felt it necessary to rebut some of the recent things I have read about my favorite place to stay, in my favorite place to visit. As a working musician, I make it a priority to seek out accommodations that are not only affordable, but give... More

As many others have stated...I rented rooms 4 5 and 6 for two nites and when I arrived the lady said she hadn't took the 250.00 deposit off of my visa card yet and would I like to just pay cash, and I said no, just take the 250.00 as originally planned. I paid the 360.00 difference in cash and... More
