We visited for a week beginning August 10th. We were pleased that The Silver Lake (TSL) was able to accommodate our request for a Sunday to Sunday stay. We stayed in suite 101 because we were looking for room for four that was also pet friendly. While the room did appear a bit dated, we were very pleased with the... More

We were disappointed with this hotel. After booking two rooms one was very moldy smelling and our second room had mold in the bathroom. This caused my son to have trouble breathing and we had to move hotels. We don't recommend this hotel and not stay there again.

We stayed at the Silver Lake July 19-22 in one of the newly renovated condo rooms. The room was beautiful, the view amazing, and the location of the Sliver Lake in my opinion is the best on the Island. You are within walking distance to everything, however we rented a golf cart and had a blast exploring the back roads... More

This was our first time to Ocracoke and we can't wait to return next year! It's now our favorite by far beach vacation. Walk everywhere! My teenagers loved it because I felt it safe and small enough for them to go out on their own for food/shopping/etc. This hotel was recommended by friends who have been staying there with their...
