Our stay here was very short, but the desk manager went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and welcoming. Our room was very clean and spacious and they have chase lounges out at the docks and bikes you can rent out front. Everything you need for little Ocracoke.

We had a great time staying in the Treasure Chest cottage over spring break. Great location, views, and close to the Sound and Springers Point. My only concern in writing a review is that it will be too popular for us to be able to book again!

Stayed here in April over our kids' Spring break. The staff were friendly and allowed early check-in. The room was spotless and very well appointed. Nothing uber-fancy, but it included everything you'd expect in a decent chain hotel. The harbor view room was wonderful - stayed on the 2nd floor. We walked to everything - even down to Howard's Pub... More

This is an older hotel, but has been kept up very well. When was the last time you used a key to get in the room rather than a swipe card. Our room on the second floor was spacious, nicely decorated and very clean. Had a decent view of the harbor. Couple things to know about are that it is... More

After arriving at the inn we asked about places to eat etc. Everyplace that was suggested was closed. We were told there is a free breakfast starting at 745am . Office didn't open til 8 and there was no breakfast ready. When the staff arrived I commented on the mold smell in the room and could use the HVAC unit... More

In response to the customers complaints the island is just getting open for the year so some restaurants are still closed and others may not stay open as late as usual due to lack of business which is hardly something we can control. There was a miscommunication between staff and we miss stated the time for continental breakfast for that... More

Everything seemed fine after checking in but we had constant problems with housekeeping.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights about a week after the "season" ended and were very pleased. We had a 2nd floor room that had a beautiful view of the harbor. We enjoyed time out on the private balcony every evening. The room was very clean comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. I would highly recommend staying here.

We stayed here and just wish we had planned to stay longer. Our room was very clean and comfortable. It would have been nice to have a comfortable chair or two in the room, but we really couldn't complain about the room. Hubby has problems with stairs, otherwise we would have stayed in one of the 3rd floor suites. Each... More

Talk about a room with a view -- clean, spacious, fully equipped and perfect location. Grab a bicycle and the car remains parked till the vacation is over. Java on the balcony a must -- bring your camera for those Kodak moments.

Home spun charm. Clean rooms. Spacious. Great view. Great staff. Comfortable bed. Best part of it all....it's privately owned and they took great pride. Another perk they set the rules and by that I mean they have signs posted to respect the "quietude " meaning no loud partying after 10:00pm(no exceptions). Thank God!!! The people above us were on their... More
