Great location, great price, and a good value. We would gladly stay here again. I suggest a harbor view room. We enjoyed the convenience of being able to sit on the porch and watch the world go by......

It was clean room was clean- we stayed in the apt. The breakfast was basic with a nice view. Easy to rent a golf cart! The ONLY thing stopping me from giving it 5 stars was that the front desk people weren't friendly. Besides that it was great!

We've been going to Ocracoke for ten years and in that time we've visited 14 times. The first four times were with another fine inn on the island, but once we discovered Ocracoke Harbor Inn we've never gone back to the other inn. We live the view from our deck and the accessibility to the main area of town and... More

We have been coming to Ocracoke for over 40 years as we were property owners. We made the decision several years ago to sell our properties but we still believe Ocracoke to be BPOE (Best Place On Earth). We really enjoyed the Harbor Inn. The private balcony overlooking the Silver Lake harbor was wonderfully. We had coffee there every morning... More

We had five airplanes fly into the Ocracoke airport with a total of ten people. The Inn provided transportation for all of us to and from the airport. The staff are delightful and extremely helpful throughout our stay. We rented bikes which is the best way to get around the island. The rooms were spotless.

The Inn is ideally located across the street from the harbor. Everything is in walking locations. Room are clean although a little out of date with the exception of the TV. Kitchenette is perfect size. The only downside which might be trivial BUT is the curtains or lack of. The glides are very light and white which can make sleeping... More

Don't confuse the Harbor Inn with the Harborside! The Harbor INN is ideally located on a quiet street with an excellent view of the harbor and ferries; the Harborside is on the main road in the midst of bars and fishing charters. We could not have asked for better accommodations than at Harbor Inn. All rooms have private balconies overlooking... More

OHI is on the other side of Silver Lake away from lots of traffic and noise. Very personal attention from staff. I've stayed a couple of times and will return. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. My last visit was the last leg of a trip which included Savannah & Charleston and I stayed in a couple of pretty upscale... More

We have stayed at the Ocracoke Harbor Inn for the past 7-8 years and it has always been a pleasant and relaxing visit. Two years ago, we decided to shift our reservations to coincide with the Ocrafolk Festival. The Inn is convenient to the festival sites and a great place to return to afterwards. The view of the harbor is... More

We stayed 3 nights in a downstairs room and it was very comfortable. The breakfast was all you needed to start the day; cereal, fruit, bagel, English muffins and coffee. Unlike the people who wrote a review in May, we found an ice machine on the second floor very close to our room. We made reservations for next year during... More
