We spent two nights at the Inlet Inn. We really enjoyed our waterfront room with the balcony overlooking the water. The location is great, you can walk to anyplace you need to go to in town, all the restaurants are nearby.

Hotel is right across the street from the water and ferries. Hotel was clean and rooms were spacious. Nice balcony to sit out on in each room. They bring a continental breakfast to your room. Price was reasonable. Only downside was the lady at check-in may have been having a bad day. Aside from that it exceeded expectations.

The Inlet Inn is a convenient and pleasant place to stay when in Beaufort, NC . It's an older place so the weather has taken a toll over the years. The owners seem to work at maintaining the property and it's quaint and quiet. The rooms are older as are the fixtures and the mattresses. But they are spacious with...

Inlet Inn was located directly across from the ferry and our room was on the second floor. We sat on the balcony in the sun. Got a bit of a sunburn. Perfect location. Beaufort is a quaint coastal town, with great shopping and dining. We ate at the Beaufort Grocery, for lunch, Ribeyes , for local oysters, and Clawsons, for...

The Inlet Inn was an unpretentious waterfront inn that has a lot going for it. If an extra $20 a night isn't a deal breaker for you, by all means book a waterfront room (2nd floor is better viewing than 1st floor.) Not only does your spacious balcony look out onto marinas filled with yachts and sailboats, but we saw...

What a perfect way to spend New Years Eve and celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary. Rooms are ultra clean; everyone there very friendly. We can't wait to go back. An added bonus is the mini breakfast of fresh muffins, bagels, OJ, etc. Great seafood restaurants and shopping just out your front door!

We stayed here about 3 years ago and, as our last visit was so good, we were keen to return. We were NOT disappointed - it was just as good as last time, if not, better! We had a great room with all we could need, overlooking the harbour with a good sized balcony to sit on, to watch the...

Great location. Spacious, clean rooms. Nice breakfast delivered to your room. We keep coming back and it is consistently great. You park your car when you arrive and can walk to everything in town. Always enjoyable.

Arrived in town with no reservation and noticed the hotel driving down the street. Lots of parking, best location in town for walking waterfront and accessing restaurants. Nicely appointed rooms, clean, very accommodating staff. Will stay again next time in town.

Stayed two nights while we were in Beaufort for a family wedding. Our room was spacious with one of the most comfortable king sized beds I've ever had the pleasure to sleep in. The view was beautiful out of our second floor room and off of our balcony. We could see nearby islands and beautiful boats passing by. Our room...

“Waterfront rooms are $20.00 more but well worth it. Go for the 2nd floor for the best balcony views.”
