A Trip Advisor recommendation resulted in a 3 day weekend that was wonderful. The staff are 100% friendly and accomdating. The room was actually larger than envisioned having seen the web site. Room was spotless, bed was very comfortable and the view - amazing. Quiet cove on the north side of Roanoke Island right in the heart of downtown Manteo.... More

Had to be on the Outer Banks for a couple days to do some book signings so I decided to stay in Manteo because it was centrally located between Duck and Buxton. I was looking for a quiet and quaint place and the Tranquil Inn fit both criteria to a tee. This place is older, gets a lot of use,... More

We loved this Inn!! It was clean and welcoming and the location was fantastic. The staff at this Inn was unbelievable. We stayed during Hurricane Author and we felt so loved and safe. The staff looked out for us and kept us updated with weather reports and made sure we parked our car so it was not washed away...they made... More

We were looking for somewhere to stay on a weekend which seemed to be fully booked as it was peak holiday season. We walked in and amazingly they had rooms available for one night. We would have liked more but the manager spent 20 minutes calling local hotels for us. We didn't find anything that time but I was so... More

We recently stayed three days at this very nice bed and breakfast. Looks and acts more like a hotel. Quiet, comfortable, very clean. Probably will be enjoyed more by adults. Room needed some cosmetic repairs that didn't effect our stay. Extremely convenient to the lovely town square of Manteo. Good breakfast, nicely presented. Good staff. So glad we stayed in... More

What can I say... This was a great place to stay. Excellent staff. Clean rooms. Well decorated. When we got to our room the baby's crib was already setup. The view was amazing. You can go wrong with this place!

We loved staying at this inn. They really have it together. The location, the view, the amenities, the furnishings, the staff.... It is a tranquil and hospitable place. We went during the tourist season, and the price was as good as other places we checked, only more elegant.

This was a girl's weekend and a perfect choice for accommodations! Within walking distance of shops, restaurants and a lovely park across the inlet. Room was lovely with a view of the waterfront and bridge to the park. Staff was always helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was simple, yet adequate with cold cereals, fruit, various breads and pastries, coffee, juices, milk;... More

There are a LOT of stairs, that squeaked very loudly, and no help was offered at check in. Immediately upon walking into the room (33) there was a strong odor - mold, mildew, smoke from past occupants smoking? Not sure which. I reported it within the hour to the person at the front desk who checked us in. She wrote... More
