Just got back from our 3rd stay and as always very pleased! We have stayed in different suites each time and they have all been great. The beds are very comfortable, the view of Silver Lake is nice, the suite was very clean, the full kitchen is a great bonus and the fact that it is in walking/biking distance to... More

We thought we had stayed here once before but we were wrong. If so we would have known better. The room was terrible and over priced for a dump. The bed was worn out years ago and the whole room had a sour smell. We ending up moving to The Captains Landing for our last night and it was great.

Well...I was really at a loss for words when I read this. First of all, I am very sorry you were so very disappointed. The inn is closed now or I would reach out to the manager to see if you had let her know how upset you were. We are closed for the winter and use this time to... More

If you stay, expect VERY rustic accommodations. The room was tiny, there was no coffee pot and as far as we could tell nowhere nearby to get coffee before 8 am, the mini fridge was rusting and leaky, and the beds extremely creaky. Worst of all, the room we reserved was not equipped with heat (this was not mentioned when... More

We rented room/suite 204 for two nights (Sat. and Sun) for our anniversary. The room was very clean and well furnished...if you see reviews here that say otherwise, they are not true. We were both VERY happy with the room itself. We had two experiences with the customer service. Booking was very easy and pleasant. A lady even called me... More

We stayed for the 1st Pirate Jamboree and a romantic get away! We loved our stay, we stayed in room 208, the hammock outside our room had a view of the lighthouse and all the pirate activities happening! We look forward to coming back and staying again, loved the location, we walked everywhere, and the locals were great! Highly recommend... More

The Pirate Jamboree is always so much fun! I am happy to hear you enjoyed it. Walking everywhere, or riding a bike, is the best way to get around on Ocracoke, I agree. It was very nice of you to specify which room you stayed in as we always get comments and inquiries when a reviewer does mention the exact... More

We have always wondered what this motel is like after 30 years trying other accommodations we finally tried the Silver Lake Motel and Inn. It is clean and offers a continental breakfast. There is a small refrigerator in our small room. The Motel is closer to the heart of the village and across the street from the water but it... More

Loved the suite we stayed in...three balconies, two with hammocks overlooking the harbor-gorgeous views. We had two baths and a full kitchen It was clean, but in need of some repairs, and the mattresses/boxsprings were less than desirable--could not move with out waking every one in ear shot!( I understand they are renovating/updating all of the rooms so hopefully that...

My family of four plus our small dog stayed here Aug 15, 16th. We don't have many choices when traveling with the dog. So it's always nerve wracking to check into a pet room. But we were happy.
