“What a great little find....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We only were going to stay on Ocracoke for 1 night and found Edwards on Tripadvisor. Looked like a good spot and we were not disappointed.
We reserved online and received the confirmation right away. Our room was the end unit of the bungalow row (there are 5), clean as a whistle, throwback decorations, ample space, large wrap around porch with rockers outside. Walkable to whatever you want, coffe house, restaurants, shopping. This is a be back!

Room Tip: As advertised not all rooms have a fridge, we knew but make sure you check.

We booked our bungalow room via internet and a confirmation phone call shortly before our arrival. Although we arrived after closing (6pm), a note with instructions had been left for us. When we entered the room, our immediate reaction was "we are soooo returning here". The room was clean and welcoming. Four windows enabled us to enjoy the cross breeze. The bathroom contained toilet, sink and shower which was sufficient for our needs. The owners/staff were friendly and helpful, going out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.

Amazing little place,, off the main drag,, nice staff & atmosphere,, coffee shop 1 block away,, downtown shops about 1/4 mile walk,, ferry ride to Cedar Island is 2.5 hours,, was great for first hour,, then boring, bring a book, deck of cards, coloring book, fingernail clippers, rod & reel, jogging shorts, just something to occupy your time,,,,,,,, will definitely stay again and bring motorcycle buddies !!!!

Room Tip: need to book in advance in summer & weekends

We love Edwards of Ocracoke. The owners and staff were both friendly and helpful. Our most recent vist was over the Thanksgiving holiday. My son's single room was clean and very cozy with a surprisingly large bathroom. Our efficiency room was also clean and spacious, and it had everything we needed to prepare family meals (full size stove/oven, fridge, and table). We really love the 50s decor (lamps, clocks, melmak mixing bowls), the screened porchs, and the courtyard area with fantastic seating under live oaks and Carolina jasmine to toast the days end. The beds are firm enough for a great nights sleep. Edwards' location is off the main highway, so it's quiet and away from the ferry traffic. And the price is RIGHT compared to other places on the island. We have been coming to Ocracoke for holidays and family vacations for more than 40 years - camping and staying in a variety of the older motels. Now we have found our home away from home at Edwards of Ocracoke.

We took the ferry from Hatteras and arrived late. I hadn't called to tell them but they had a note for us with our room keys! It is not a fancy hotel but a family run place with small cottages. We were told in Nags Head that there would be no cell phone service or wifi at the hotel but that wasn't true. We had great signal for both!

Shopping and restaurants are close by. Well, it's a small island! Lol

I also went for a 10 mile run in the morning and felt very safe.

Great place to stay! Our friends stayed in a cottage near us and they had a small kitchen which was convenient. I'd definitely recommend staying here! You won't be disappointed!!

Stayed two nights. Was like a motel from the 60s. Clean. Owners were nice and helpful. Mattresses were firm giving a good nights sleep. Will definitely stay here again. Direct TV. WiFi. Screened porch. Three beds in our room. Refrigerator.

Again...clean room, friendly welcoming service! Simple...we look to get away from it all and it's so easy to slip into island as soon as walk in to the office at check-in. We LOVE Edwards! Wont stay anywhere else in Ocracoke!
