I always stay at the Scarborough Inn when I am in the Manteo area. It is very clean, well kept up, with fresh paint in every room, and care taken to make your stay comfortable. It is a family run operation, with lovely antiques in the rooms, but nice modern appliances, and conveniences such as a flat screen TV, refrigerator,... More

Stayed 2 nights. Location is fine- convenient for breakfast (as you don't want to eat what's provided; two packaged pastries) with several options close by. Room was smallish, temperatures were cold so the a/C heater unit would kick in periodically sounding like a 747 on take-off... Rooms were clean enough but really fairly basic. Price is OK but you get... More

Had a great experience at this inn. It feels very homey and had essentially everything a visitor would need considering you will be spending most of your time exploring the surrounding area I stead of watching TV in your room. It did not feel like a hotel room at all, the room felt like you were staying at your family's... More

This is a clean, comfortable, and quiet place to stay. We really enjoyed it. The location is great! There are a few restaurants, a gas station, etc near by, and it's only 10 miles drive to Nags Head. Also, downtown Manteo is fun/cute place to look around.

Having read some earlier reviews I was expecting to be disappointed by our stay at the Scarborough Inn but I was pleasantly surprised! Let me start by saying that this is a no frills place to stay. Certainly not a B and B, and without any amenities I wouldn't call it a hotel. Basically a clean quiet place to sleep.... More

The biggest drawback for me was being given a room on the upper level and not having any help with bags. There were many stairs accessible only from the front of the building and my room was located almost at the rear of the building. That's a long way! I, too, was at the wedding mentioned by another reviewer. I... More

We had a small room in a separate building. For the price okay. The airconditioning was very, very noisy so we had to turn it off. But with an open window the noise from the (busy) road is very loud. The 'breakfast' (2 muffins) were already in the room at arrival. The location is convenient.

Ours had a four poster bed in a side room, a sofa, a small drop leaf table with two chairs. There was a microwave and frig next to a sink that is share by bathroom with only a shower. Our... More

We only stayed one night, but it was a good experience overall. We had Room 2, which has 2 queen beds. The room itself was standard hotel size and layout, but the decorations and furniture were antiques and it almost felt like staying in my grandmother's house. There was a strong smell (also reminding me of grandmothers) that I can't... More
