“Comfortable and great rates”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Stayed in early April on our way back north. Very dependable motel, clean with good beds. Got two rooms with kitchenette facilities that were very useful. Location is great, easy to get around village from there. Will plan on staying there again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

We stayed here in March and liked it a lot and will definately be back. The room we had was on the second floor, like others have said it was very clean and spacious. We like to look for shells on Ocracoke so we don't spend much time in the room and this was perfect. We had stayed at another motel and it was nice but we did feel like the room was verrry small and it felt cramped. I am a light sleeper and had no problem sleeping here and could not hear any noise from other rooms. Good experience with the people that worked here and very easy to check in and out. I really like the beaches at Ocracoke and look forward to coming back.

We planned a quick trip over to Ocracoke, however the weather turned rough and the ferry stopped running for the night. We had to rent a room. We stopped at the first hotel we came saw. The desk clerk was very pleasant and informative. The room was very clean. There was a small refrigerator in the room. Very reasonable rates at $75 a night.

My family of four stayed in the new section of the 2nd floor. We were able to check-in early. The room was clean and spacious. Parking was right out front. We did have to walk-up steps, but they were wide and well constructed.

We rented bikes from the motel, which may not have been the best choice. They had seen better days--we were told they were scheduled to be replaced soon. The pillows were a bit flat and no extra's were provided. We didn't ask of more pillows.

The location of the Pony is ideal. Its close enough to the harbor and shops on back road, while just a short walk or bike ride from the grocery store, Howard's Pub, and other destinations on the way out of town.

I hadn't been to Ocracoke in almost 10-years and golf carts have become very popular. I prefer the bikes and wish the town would limit the number of golf carts. I can't imagine what its like during the summer.

Room Tip: We stayed in the new section, on the 2nd floor.

Rooma are always clean and they will always go out of their way for you! Also have bikes you can rent. Yes the pony is a little more than some on the island but you get what you pay for. They also have a pool for the days you don't want to go to the beach! I have never had an bad stay at the pony and you should not!

Enjoyed the stay. We were there in the off season so the rate was great. The room was very adequate, as we just needed a place to sleep and shower. It was clean, updated bathroom. Slept great. They had bicycles, would have liked to have got to use one of them, but ran out of time.

We stayed here in Dec. Will have to agree that the walls are a little thin. Plus anyone moving early on the porch did make a lot of noise.We had a full Kitchen in our room. Room was very clean. Staff were only there part time due to it being winter.They do have a newer wing that has no porch.

Room Tip: Ask for the section with out the pouch
