After looking on the internet for hotels in the Manteo area, I settled on the Elizabethan Inn. Online, the pictures look nice and it was close to the attractions where I would be. There were 3 of us and a small dog weighing less than 6 pounds. I told them upfront and they booked us into a "pet room". And they charge you for every little thing. There was a sign out in front of the hotel saying that they had specials for $49.95 per night. I guess I didn't qualify for the special because we had a tiny dog and our room was $78.38 after all was said and done. I was FURIOUS!! I even asked for the $49.95 rate and was told that since I had 3 people and 1 dog in my party, the rate was not available to me. It was still the same 2 beds- not 3, so I don't understand. The hotel was NOT crowded at all, so I was really upset and if I had not been driving all day, I would never have stayed there and will never stay there again. The room was not a rennovated room. It smelled of mold. I went and spoke to the staff and they said that the only had 3 pet rooms so that was where I had to stay. This room was all the way in the back of the property and I just felt dumped there. I even asked them what I needed to do to get a better room and they said that I could get one, but the party with the dog could not. It was just an unpleasant experience. Maybe the other parts of the hotel were nice, but where I was- all the way in the back- was a dump and it definately put a damper on my trip to Manteo. I will know better for the next time and will not stay there again whether I have a pet with me or not.
