On the Swan Quarter ferry ride, my Ocracoke-naive boyfriend turned to me and inquired how far away the Island Inn was from Starbucks. If you love only Myrtle Beach, Disney World, or 5-star hotels...DO NOT VISIT OCRACOKE. On the other hand, if you would love to do nothing more than wake up, sit on the porch and talk to your... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the weekend and were a little hesitant based on some of the reviews. However when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. The inn is one of the oldest on the island but definitely has the homey feel most newer places lack. We stayed in the Crows Nest and loved it. The room was... More

The Island Inn was built in 1901 and has been in the same family since 1990. I have stayed there several times and have found the host to be warm, friendly and helpful. You can tell she takes pride in the history of the building and making sure her customers are happy. If I have needed anything she has done... More

This place should be shut down and put out of business. They charged my girlfriend and I 1000+$ for no reason when we were leaving the island. They said the money would be refunded and it never was. When we called and asked about the money, the lady went off on a crazy ramble about the terrible condition of the... More

I can't believe this place is still in business. If you are a college kid, this place is for you. It reminds me of a Frat house. The credit card comments are no surprise, since I had the same experience. A refund was do and it took several phone calls to get it paid back. Hmmmmm...coincidence ? ? Probably not... More

A group of us campers came to stay since Hurricane Aurthur had the NPS campground closed. Three family's one with dogs one with young children and us with a cat. The Innkeeper family took us in and were as friendly and accommodating as can be. Restaurants were closing everywhere so what did they do? Put out a spread of corn,... More

Checked into The Island Inn on a Tuesday for a two night stay. We had a room in the original building on the ground floor. Nice room, clean + cold A/C! Wednesday morning our car battery died! The staff and management could not have been nicer, they helped us get a jump start, accepted calls from the local garage for... More

We have been unfortunately dealing with these people for 3 long years now. Read all the other reviews carefully. I live in NC and never would have chosen this place. I visit Ocracoke often. I usually rent a house. My sister came down from out of state for the Ocrafolk Festival one year and enjoyed shopping over at the store... More

For the longest time I have wanted to bring my family to Ocracoke so that my children could experience the charm and quaintness of this remote Island, a place where you really feel you are getting away. I had not been to Ocracoke for over 25 years but I had fond memories of my few visits there. Finally, my wife... More

We rented a two bedroom condo on the third floor. Each unit is separately owned and managed by CeCe at the Island Inn. We went in the off season (April) so the price was very reasonable. CeCe is very nice and accommodating. If we needed something, she made sure it was delivered to us promptly. The owners of the unit... More
