“WHAT A LITTLE GEM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The outside can be deceiving!! When we pulled into the parking lot and saw the paint work, we looked at each other with surprise! But once we met the owners and got into our room we were very pleased. Big bright rooms, plenty of amenities, comfy bed, and great value for money, AND best of all it was so different to most stark hotel rooms.
If you want a little fun in your life and your travels you must stay here. Close to beach and eateries. Great overnight stay on our ten week roadtrip.

Enjoyed our stay at the Caribbe Inn. Trish and Darrel were very welcoming and friendly. Room was very clean and painted with beachy whimsical charm. Seating areas outside were very comfortable. There was easy access to the beach. Will stay there again!!

I spent last week with Trish and Darrel and had a wonderful time fishing and enjoying the beautiful weather on the Carolina coast. Their place has a warm and at home feel and Trish and Darrel go all out to make your stay enjoyable. The room was fresh and clean and did not have the normal motel smell. This is a very comfortable place to stay. I have already booked for next year.

This was our first stay at the Caribbe Inn, but it definitely will not be the last. We were pleased with the location and the very reasonable price. It was near good restaurants, the attractions we wanted to visit and also easy access to the beach. The room was decorated in a fun seashore theme and it was super clean! Trish was very nice and gave us helpful information about the area.

I'm a diver and I always stay at the Caribbe Inn. After trying several other places in the OBX I always stay here. 2- 4 times a year. This is a small family owned place and Trish & Darrell always take great care of me. I travel with lots of dive gear and cameras. The Inn is so convenient to the dive boats, grocery store, everything you need. It is always clean and quiet even though it's close to the road and the gas station. Fridge, microwave, hot shower, wi-fi and plenty of spots to plug in my lights and cameras to recharge. No ice machine or in room coffee but there is a 24-hour gas station/store with everything you need right there. Hoses and fish cleaning station. All this for the best price in town. Skip the over-priced chains in Morehead City and walk to the beach!

Room Tip: Closer to the office for best wi-fi. Sprint cell service is not great in Atlantic Beach (non-existen...

Great little spot to crash at Atlantic Beach. Easy access to the beach and right off the causeway. Trish was extremely helpful, gave great recommendations and the price was outstanding. We will be back for sure.

This is my third visit to the Caribbee Inn. Still a perfect fit for me. Spring and Fall I like to fish out of Moorehead and the Caribbe Inn is perfectly positioned for that.

Adjacent to two marinas, the Caribbe also has a couple of slips for guests with boats under 24 feet. Trish and Danny are great hosts and the rooms have everything you need: fridge, microwave, coffee maker, plenty of room. Ice for your boat at as you walk out the door.

There really is nothing quite as nice as walking out of your room and on to your boat. And, if the Caribbe doesn't have a slip, Anchorage Marina is just 2 blocks away: great slips, great service, great prices. Oh, nice cleaning table too.

Bottom line, this can't be beat for the fisherman I know.

If your fishing Moorhead and trailering a boat, this is the place to be.

Tight lines.
