The Inn is in a high demand beach summer location, so I guess that's how they justify their price. The staff was ok, the older man was nice enough, but basically the vibe I got was that we know we're the only game in town (busy weekend) so take it or leave it, just very casual, not customer service oriented....

I gave the place one star because I couldn't give it none. We had stayed here several years ago and enjoyed its old-beach-resort funkiness, but this year our experience was not at all enjoyable. The office staff were downright surly. The room we were given smelled strongly of cat urine, even though there is a no pet policy. The pull-out... More

I have stayed here twice and the rooms are clean. They definitely have bumped up the price on the rooms along with guests being charged on pier fee even though we stay at the inn. I thought they weren't charging the guests who stay at the inn when I was here last time, but still charged us full $13 per... More

This was our first time here and we were a little disappointed for the money it cost. The rooms are outdated and basic. We had one of the efficiencies which was smaller than we imagined but oh well. Ice machine not working and had to beg for some ice for the cooler. Of course there were some positives...the staff was... More

Unless your renting a house for your stay on Topsail; your choices are somewhat limited. If you have a pet (dog) it gets even more complicated....there's Tiffany's and Sea Vista. I liken the Jolly Roger to a Sea Vista without pets. Tiffany's is about the same, but a short proximity to the beach. Sea Vista has a better location of... More

All you get is a view. The price of these rooms only includes a view and beach access. I’ll just jot down the specifics. Lets start with the room. We opted for a basic room, beach side (3rd floor). The two beds are DOUBLES, not queens. No alarm clock, no in room coffee maker (not even instant), not even a... More

We stayed at the Jolly Roger Inn for one night and were pleased with the accommodations and value price. We loved the ocean-front suite because it had such easy beach access (we didn't even have to go down any stairs). On our way home, one of the staff members called to tell us that we left our i-pad and that... More

I cannot comment on the hotel (having not been a guest there) but the pier and restaurant are great. The staff is friendly, and the food is surprisingly good. The BLT is actually really good. Of course there's the long gorgeous pier which is great for walking, fishing or just sitting and gazing out at the sea. There are benches... More

A nice place to grab a snack or lunch if you at the pier or just exploring the island. The place hasn't changed in 20 years and that's a good thing. I always stop in when I'm on topsail. Take a walk on the pier or just watch the waves.

The beach, the location and the pier are all amazing. However, the rooms may or may not be. In 2012 we stayed in the newer building (tall one to the left.) The room was a little outdated but was nice for the most part. The second year I requested the same room. There was an error and they put us... More
