I think most of the time when people write these reviews, it is because they are disatisfied. They get a fire in thier belly when they are angry that something didnt go thier way. Rarely, when people are happy do they take the time to give credit where credit is due. I have expirienced many stays on the Outer Banks,... More

When we booked our stay at the Outter Banks of North Carolina, this was the only hotel we found with rooms available for the night according to our search of ALL of the hotel booking sites.. now we know why it was relatively empty.. GROSS.. 1. As soon as we opened the door, the musty, nasty odor hit us..it was... More

We got a good rate using our AAA discount ($99.00) for an Efficiency room (two queen beds, a small pull out couch, and a Kitchenette.) Since it was April this is still "off season". The location is good for Roanoke Island. For these above reasons, the room worked out for us. However, just for fair warning ... The hotel (and... More

Yes since the hotel originally opened in the mid 80 they have had a full fitness center and they have local memberships, aerobics, water aerobics, personal trainer etc. This is the reason why the pool is so big. This is a business. If the guest does not like because we sell local memberships then we have no control over this... More

My children and I went for the weekend stay, we wanted to go to the Aquarium. This place was a motel which was never mentioned to me when I made reservations. I do not stay at motels. When I found this out, I asked to be moved to one of the inside rooms, the lady asked me have we been... More

This place is unbelievable. First of all the price of the room was over charged $119.00 a night off season. The room had paint fumes so strong we had to sleep with the windows open all night and it was 50 degrees. (in fear of harming my kids) the people staying in the room below us started banging something on... More

We took an off season trip to Manteo, and decided to stay here. We were not in the main building, but in the manor house. First thing is that I think they finished painting it that morning and the room reeked of paint fumes. Tried to move but the whole place was undergoing painting. Also the quality of the painting...

Why would one expect us to be a hampton inn. we are a independent hotel and if we were the hampton then our rates would be like the hampton. The hampton on the outer banks is charging $250 - $300 on a regular season and we are charging $100 -150. We have iron, ironing boards, hair dryer, microwaves, refridgerators in... More

I think I know why people would write bad reviews - the owners are Indian and I guess people just don't like that. I had an excellent experience at this hotel. It doesn't smell, the room I had was great and the bed was comfortable. The whole place was clean. They have a restaurant that serves a full breakfast. It... More

The rooms are old, no breakfast, no wireless internet, no hair dryers in rooms, hard beds and make sure you do not stay under the work out room.......it opens at 6:00am and you will not need an alarm clock.

I must say that I was a bit wary after reading these reviews! But after choosing amenities for my family over saving a few bucks on vacation, I chose the Elizabethan. I booked our room right on the website. The same day, I received a phone call from them confirming our stay. She Once we arrived, I really didn't know... More

When researching a hotel for a long weekend in Manteo, on Roanoke Island, I found the Elizabethan Inn. They boast of a sauna, pool, gym, and beautiful surroundings. This place was literally a dump! The moment I walked in to the entrance, it smelled of mold. The room was not clean, the bedspread and carpet was threadbare. We asked for... More

Sorry for the inconvenience. We had just bought the motel July 25, 2007 and its summer season. We cannot right away do the things that are missing. We have to make most of the summer so we can survive in the winter. Yes we know that all the rooms need iron, ironing board hair dryer, which by the way was... More
