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.

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"

My family and I had the opportunity to stay at the Elizabethan inn in Manteo, NC while visiting our family.

Dear Mr Z., 1. This is a historic hotel in a historic area. Our website has pictures of our rooms taken recently. You made your reservation through Expedia and knew what you were paying before you arrived. Our rooms are clean and constantly being updated. 2. Your “plumbing leak” was caused because you decided to fill the tub with the... More

We weren't quite sure what to expect since this isn't a chain hotel, but we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were very clean and the water was very hot in athe shower, which I really needed. The restaurant was excellent. Would definitely stay again and recommend.

I would not recommend this hotel. It was really outdated to the point of being dressing. I paid WAY too much for my room and they had the nerve to charge me a resort fee even though the indoor pool was closed. Toiletries were soap and a combination of shampoo and conditioner. Even though it was unseasonably frigidly cold they... More

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us, but some of your statements were a little confusing. First, we do not charge a "resort fee" of any kind, so we don't know to what you were referring. The indoor pool was open for regular hours 7 days a week in April, when you said you stayed. Our... More
