There aren't many hotels in Elizabeth City and they're all fairly expensive considering the location. After being quoted $71 for a double room at the Econolodge, we ended up at the Traveler's Inn. It's a little ways out of town but closer to the highway if that's where you're coming from. We were quoted $55 plus taxes for a double by the nice Indian couple who run the place, but they accepted our flat $45 offer. We didn't know til later that a beachfront room with a free breakfast in nearby Kill Devil Hills was only $39 this time of year, but you do now!
We were pleasantly surprised by the room: it was large, clean, and quiet (except for the occasional police car speeding past with lights and siren on) and included HBO, a microwave, a mini fridge, hair dryer, coffee maker, local guide brochures, and an on-site ice maker (.25 a bucket) and soda machines.
We didn't see any of the filth other people have described; the room was actually quite clean except for some crumbs along the base of the beds. We recommend the hotel if you absolutely have to stay in Elizabeth City, otherwise head for Kill Devil Hills where they're abundant and cheaper in the off season.
