PERFECTLY BEACHY- clean friendly small and personalized motel. easyto drive right by it as it looks like a house from the street and is on the left side as you head to the fort and... More

You are ten minutes from the beach and paying a third less (at least) than in-season beach prices. These are clean, simple beachy accommodations. The wifi does not work in the rooms (I was told this before I booked. It works in the lobby) and we did have some issues with electricity as two of the outlets did not work.... More

Some friends recommended the Guest House and it was wonderful. Very clean and the staff was as accommodating as any 5 star hotel. Enjoyed the Tiki Bar, sitting with friends enjoying some fun times. Recommend it highly.

We enjoyed our three night stay in Manteo. Nice, clean cottage. Not on the water. But a short walk to downtown. The Endless Summer Cottage owned and operated by the Island Guesthouse and Cottages is, as my wife would say, "cute as a button". Small but well stocked and quaint; fairly new and in excellent condition. Our only gripe was... More

We stayed at the little life boat house for our honeymoon last July. It was the perfect place. The cottage the island, the people were all wonderful!! It is such a laid back island but plenty to do and see. The history is rich and the scenery breathtaking!!

This place surpassed our expectations! Initially, we were going to stay at the motel the month before. We had discovered Manteo during the Christmas holidays and fell in love with the small, quaint town. In early February, we lost one of our beloved dogs and wanted to to getaway to mend our hearts. We found this pet-friendly property but cancelled... More

3 star because It is close to the beach. we asked for non-smoking room but the room smelled really bad. I had to go to store and buy a candle and room freshener. Front desk/Tiki bar was always abandoned. WiFi connections was not good.

We spent 3 nights at the Endless Summer cottage and had a fabulous time. Graham was very nice and helpful during our stay. We had a problem with the heat and there was someone there to check it very quickly. The cottage was decorated really cute with a surfer theme carried thru out the cottage. 2 large bathrooms and plenty... More

We stayed in the Endless Summer Cottage. It is very cute and the amenities are nice. Customer service was fine and we enjoyed our stay. It was "off" season and the location was good. We enjoyed being closer to the attractions since it was too cold for the beach.

We stayed at the Little Boat House Cottage on Roanoke Island, Historic Manteo. There are Three absolutely beautiful Cottages next to each other. These are different than the Motel just a few blocks away, so Don't confuse the Two. The Motel received Lower reviews, so be aware that I am reviewing the Cottages. These Three Cottages are New, Beautiful, Clean... More
