Best breakfast on the island! Sit outside on the pier and enjoy the view as a bonus. Everyone is always friendly and very accommodating. Nothing fancy but it's the only place we go for breakfast. There is usually always a fisherman or two that you can have a friendly conversation with. Great start to your day!

I loved it here, it was very clean and the room faced the ocean. No bells and whistles, but that was quite all right, the hospitality of the place more than compensated for no WiFi (we all need a break from tech!) Inexpensive, competitively priced with "budget motels" like Motel 6, but much cleaner than the 3 I stayed in.... More

For the people that do not have the wealth to rent a cottage or own one, the places to stay on the island are few. This is an older stick=built motel. Do not expect mints on the pillows! If you are go to Wrighstville Beach and spend $200 a night! The views are spectacular! All ocean front rooms in the... More

While the rooms are not very up to date the view from the huge window was wonderful. There was a mini fridge, a coffee maker and a microwave. I had no complaints with the room. The beds slept well and housekeeping was always making sure that we had everything we needed. I had an oceanfront room and everything was just... More

The ocean view and the pier were nice. We stayed in a beach front room and the view was about the only thing good. The shower was broken, the furniture and decor were from the 70's. The carpet was sandy and dirty. The standard size bed and the sofa bed were both very uncomfortable. The room had a very strong... More

Before we stayed at a beach house, we have always stayed at the Jolly Roger ever since I was younger! They have delicious food in the pier house and the views are beautiful to wake up to in the morning! They also have a pier that you can fishing and sightseeing on! Come visit the Jolly Roger Inn & Pier... More

I don't submit bad reviews very often, but I really needed to say something about my last visit to the Jolly Roger Inn. The bugs were so bad and their "newer building" was infested with them. They had someone going around to spray for bugs, but it was such a terrible experience. My family was bothered by the bugs all... More

The wife and I went to Topsail for our anniversary, we booked an ocean front room three months in advance. When we arrived the lady at check-in said we would have to stay in a parking lot facing room and move the next day. When we went to our room it stunk and had bugs on the walls. It hadn't... More

If you want a 5 star hotel go somewhere else. This is a inn for goodness sake. When we arrived the lady at the front desk was very nice and they were able to accommodate our early arrival. The room was clean but did have a certain smell to it. Once we made fajitas in the kitchen area the smell... More

I really don't understand all the reviews saying this place is clean- clean facilities don't have several, 2-inch long cockroaches that just sit, bold as brass, on the bed, staring at you like they own the place. On the bed? Really?! Clean places at least make an effort to get the sand off the floor. Yes, even at the beach,... More
