“Wonderful Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My husband and I and our 2 children stayed this past Memorial Day Weekend and I cannot say enough about this motel. Rooms were clean and bright and recently refurbished. We loved sitting out on our deck in the adirondack chairs. It was downtown and close to everything but so peaceful and quiet at night. Perfect for families and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful! We cannot wait to book our next stay at the Pony motel.

We stayed one night in April 2013. Rooms are clean, comfortable, and very affordable. Will definitely stay here again. The front desk staff were very pleasant and offered dining suggestions. Close to Howard's Pub.

We stayed there in April, 2013. This place is a gem. Clean rooms, nice beds and easily accessible to Howard's Pub, Jason's restaurant and Downtown. We rented Bicycles w/locks at the hotel and rode them for 24 hours for $10 each. The front desk doesn't have any of the modern conveniences, but our check-in was not hindered and the staff actually wrote information on paper. We were on the third floor and there was no elevators, so we got plenty of exercise. Great value, and friendly people.

If you are looking for a fancy place,this is not it. If you are looking for a clean, friendly, affordable place to spend a few days with a pool this is it. Check in was a breeze, pool was nice, location was great. If I was in Ocracoke for a few days I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed here in April, 2013; and were delighted with the cleanliness and modern updates to the efficiency unit we had. The first night, there were guests nearby us who were being noisy after hours; and we called the owner at the number given. She phoned them and explained the noise restrictions; then, actually physically went by their room to be sure they complied. We were impressed that the hotel cared about guests in that manner! It's a great place and the staff member we met, Candy, couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Highly recommend this place to you!

Room Tip: The office side efficiency we stayed in was a wonderful value for the money. So clean, too...

Just got off the ferry after a long drive and pulled into pony island! Nice small p.ace in the middle of everything. Nothing fancy friendly clean walking distance to everything g we needed. Good water pressure, lots of hot water. Towels could be a little bigger. GREAT dollar value.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Have stayed here before and decided to rebook for two nights. We appeared to be the only guests in the building we were in, then found that there was another couple in our building, in the room right next to us! The first night was extremely quiet, as the couple in the room next to us seemed to have left the island for the night. The next night was a different story. Out of the entire building, why did the front desk decide that the two reservations they had should be lodged side-by-side?! We think this couples room must have been equipped with a bowling alley, really, they were that noisy. Not the best night sleep! If not for this issue, we would have had a top notch stay. Room was clean, and bed was comfortable.
Only one choice for dining that we found while we were there, though we were told that the pizza place was open, we must have missed there open hours.
