I only stayed here as I had few options left over the July 4th weekend. It is in bad need of an upgrade. The staff are friendly and the rooms clean just dated. I found Manteo a bit removed from the restaurants, shops and beach of the outer banks too which required about a 10-15 minute drive. A good location... More

We are glad you found your room clean and the staff friendly. Manteo has a number of great restaurants, shops and attractions, but not the hustle, bustle and nightlife of the beach. Most of our guests come here for that reason. We are constantly replacing and updating but want to keep the personality of our historic hotel rather than turn... More

Came here for a spontaneous trip for Valentines day when our local restaurant reservations fell through. Was cold as hell that weekend, but this hotel has a nice indoor heated pool area. The room was clean, and very much showed its age. Could use some updating, and up-keep (missing window panes, etc). Had a tube tv, but had a k-cup... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. A warm pool on a cold winter's day is a great place to be! The windows you referred to were replaced right after you left. Hotels receive a lot of wear and we are constantly working on repairs and upkeeps. We are also in... More

This was a no-frills motel - but we decided to go to the Outer banks for July 4th at the last minute and were happy to find a place that had not jacked up their rates exorbitantly because it was a holiday. Manager at front desk was very pleasant both on the phone and in person. Room was clean and... More

This place was perfect for our little stay in the OBX area. The room was beautiful, clean and comfy. We were right across from the indoor pool, although we never had time to use it on this trip. The hotel staff was very friendly. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone needing lodging in the area.

A friend and I booked here for a long weekend. The pricing is very fair for the area, and extremely fair for its location. The hotel is perfectly situated for exploring the Outer Banks, being about the middle of everything. There are multiple buildings, and we got a room at the back of the campus. It was extremely clean, and,... More

Ms G, Thanks so much for your kind words. We enjoyed your company as much as you enjoyed your stay and we sincerely look forward to your next visit. I am sorry you had trouble with the wifi. Normally, we do not have a problem, but, as you supposed, the weather can sometimes affect it. Thanks again. More

After reading the entertaining reviews on Trip Advisor, we had to stay here to experience it for ourselves. It was a wonderful "old school" hotel priced very fairly for the area. Four separate buildings to choose from with both a nice looking outdoor pool as well as a large indoor heated pool. Rooms were fairly big, quiet, and everything worked... More

Me and my wife took a weekend trip to the Outer Banks, and stayed at the Elizabethan Inn. This hotel is by no means "up-to-date", but I believe it adds to the charm. The rooms are comfortable (honestly, how often are you in your room at the Outer Banks!!!). They do not offer breakfast or most things from your standard... More

Wow this hotel completely sucked. We left before even staying. Trashy girl with cornrows and old lady at front desk were Extremely rude ( shouldn't expect anything more from people without an education). From the responses above, appears as if the manager is a dick as well. Do not go to this "inn"
