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

This hotel was not what it seems like. The website for it is misleading and not all of the amenities that they offer are available. I wanted to bring my small dog and the website said that they were not pet friendly, but when we got there, they had pet rooms. The jacuzzi's were both drained. The doors on the... More

At $159.00 a night, I was disappointed. Our room was very small, with typical motel furnishings, nothing fancy. This is an older hotel. I showered right after our arrival and, believe it or not, had to dry off with a washcloth, as there were no towels in the room. The indoor pool, however, was wonderful. The staff was helpful.

The building is old and the room was unremarkable. They have a very large indoor pool, a sauna and whirlpool, and a weight room. If you want to be on Roanoke Island the location is convienient - the price reasonable.

This little inn was ok but the pet friendly room that we stayed in was in desperate need of a renovation. The bathroom fixtures, floor etc. had to be at least 30 years old. The room and bathroom were fairly clean but really outdated. There was a fridge in the room but that was the only plus. The inn did... More

I took a nice Manteo getaway with my two daughters. This was a dirty Inn, they didnt even bother to clean our room even after complaining to the manager, and no hot water. It is unfortunate that everything else was booked, or we would have not stayed here. The continential breakfast the claim--is milk, no juice of any kind, 2... More

After reading some of the horrible reviews of this property, we almost looked elsewhere, but then decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised with a lovely, large, clean, well-decorated and furnished king room. The pool is huge, it was clean, and the newly-installed hot tub was great. Housekeeping was efficient, and front desk staff were friendly and... More

My husband, our 20 month old daughter and I spent two nights in the Elizabethan Inn. We located the establishment on the web and it looked great. The website designer has inset the hotel on to what looks like a site overlooking the water. The virtual tours make it look like a well maintained upscale establishment. Unfortunately, that was not... More
