This was our first time on the Outer Banks and we decided to bring our little Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy with us. We heard that the town on Manteo was very pet friendly, so finding the Elizabethan Inn with its Victorian theme seemed perfect. Unfortunately, the pet-friendly rooms are at the back of the property, and poorly maintained, very much out of step with other rooms. The room was old, smelly, and dingy. I was able to view other rooms in site and they were charming. Like other reviewers have mentioned, cigarette smoke carried freely and smoke-free rooms (like ours) did not smell smoke-free. Also, the website stated that it had a delightful restaurant. Well, said culinary delight was closed due to a fire approximately one year earlier (June 2009). To say the website was outdated would be an understatement. The staff was certainly friendly enough, but the overall feeling was that the Elizabethan Inn had seen better days, it being most obvious in the pet-friendly rooms, which were given short rift. What really irked us that the dismal room was sorely overpriced. A blemish on a delightful town.
