I stayed at the Roanoke Island Inn with my family and really enjoyed our stay. The inn is clean, comfortable and has a great view of the small Manteo harbor. Good dining and shops are less than a 10 min. walk. The inn also offers free bicycles if you want to explore the island a bit further. Highly recommend this... More

My wife and I stayed in Room 4 in late May 2012 for our honeymoon. When we arrived, Dee gave us a warm welcome and made several fabulous restaurant recommendations. The room was very well appointed; simple and tasteful. Our side window overlooked the Manteo lighthouse and Shallowbag Bay. The Inn's location is a 3 minute walk from downtown Manteo... More

The sidebar comments cover the details and feelings for our stay at the Roanoke Island Inn. It is just a lovely, lovely discovery. RII is dog friendly, which brought us here last year on our 50th anniversary. This 51st, we have traveled enough far and wide to know that we could not improve on our experience...wanted to get out of... More

Stayed in Room #3, a ground floor spacious room with a large bay window facing the inn's well manicured backyard - inn had many outdoor places to just sit and relax, including an upstairs open porch area with rocking chairs where you could observe either waterfront activities to the front of the inn or peer down into the inn's backyard...

This was our first visit to the Outer Banks and we happened upon the Roanoke Island Inn by chance. The Inn is very well decorated and has many small touches that make it feel cared about. The backyard garden area is exceptional and makes a fantastic place to have breakfast. The Roanoke also features a kitchenette that is open 24... More

Stayed for four nights at the beginning of May. We were lucky the weather was just fantastic. The inn was a perfect place to stay in Manteo, near the wooded broad walk and restaurants in "down town" Manteo. By car we were in only 15 minutes on the beaches of the Outer Banks, lovely beaches at the National Seashore. In... More

This is a wonderful relaxing craftsman cottage that has been completely restored. We felt completely at home there. The period furnishings are very comfortable. We were sorry we were only there for a couple of days. The location is perfect. Just park your car in the driveway and walk everywhere. The cottage is right on the water and only a... More
