I have come to the Outer Banks for most of my life, and to Ocracoke for most of that. The Island Inn was the first hotel I stayed in, and it was fairly basic even then, but still had some charm. It was "the beach" we said. Corrosion, shabbiness...all part of the experience. And I still believe that, although there... More

I called to book a room prior to our Oct 2013 visit to Ocracoke, for two nights. I specifically requested 2 beds, as we were traveling with our 4 year old. The first issue began before we even arrived. My credit card, which I had given over the phone, was charged for 3 nights, not 2. We arrived late afternoon,... More

We stayed at the Island Inn on October 4, 2013, and if there's one thing I learned from the experience, it is to always look at the TripAdvisor reviews BEFORE you stay, and to believe the negative ones! (I agree with a previous reviewer that the management must be enlisting friends and family to put 5-star reviews on here, in... More

A quote from my journal written on June 5, 2013, when my husband and I booked a 5 day stay in room #4, next to the room where they keep the dead bodies, at least that's the way it smelled, at the Island Inn: "back to the room to shower- oh no- no hot water! We both took a cold... More

I stayed at this run down shack this September and it was by far the worst experience I had, out of all the places I'd stayed at, during my 3 week road trip! I only stayed there because the Pony Island Motel was fully booked, and I wasn't sure if I would get a room, elsewhere on the island that... More

If you like taking a shower in a crumbling, moldy bathtub, turning on a TV set that's not connected to anything, and having to telephone the inn manager from right outside the office in order for her to open the office; this is the place for you! The packaged bathroom soap was thinner than scraps I throw away. There were... More

We needed an extra night after renting a house for a week. Inn owner was very accommodating in getting us a refrigerator for the room and adjusting our reservation. Lobby was inviting. Our room was comfortable, albeit in need of renovations. Several little things need minor repairs, but they didn't affect the quality of the room. It's an old building... More

I experienced a lot of the same problems others reported on. We had stayed at The Island Inn several years ago & it was a pretty good deal for the money but it has really gone downhill. My major concerns are that my credit card was charged the total amount for four nights as soon as I made the reservation... More

Great room everything you need for a quick get away or extended stay. The best thing about this hotel is the customer service. Cee and Mary Chandler are awesome and will make you feel right at home. Ocracoke is a quaint little Island make sure if you go to park the car and rent a golf cart.
