The Inlet Inn is a lovely inn across from the waterfront in downtown Beaufort. The inn is beautiful and comfortable. Many rooms have a private water view balcony (we weren't in a balcony room) which we'll reserve when we return. There is a "widow's walk" upstairs open to all guests with a great view of the waterfront and the outlying... More

Family and I have made it a point to visit annually for around a decade. My wife and I got married in Beaufort and all of the wedding party stayed here. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast room service and fireplaces are a nice touch.

The Inlet Inn is our go-to place in Beaufort, NC. We stay there at least twice a year. We have never stayed in a room that was not very clean, comfortable, and cozy. The breakfast tray delivered to your room on the morning is an extra treat. We like the rooms with a balcony that overlooks the inlet and Carrot... More

My recent stay at the Inlet Inn was absolutely divine. The location could not be more perfect, right on the water across the ferry to Shackleford Banks and the wildlife reserve. It is also right on Front Street, with great restaurants such as Finz and Spouter a short walk. There are little grocery stores, coffee shops, boutique and water gear... More

We only had 2 nights to explore Beaufort, see the museum and visit the Cape Lookout Lighthouse and the Inlet Inn was the perfect resting place. The rooms are spacious and clean. The view is beautiful and the front desk staff is friendly. We were able to walk everywhere we needed to go and the Harkers Island Express Ferry was... More

We stayed in a first floor, corner room with a fireplace and porch. The room was spacious, clean, and had a very comfortable bed. The porch was perfect for sitting, people watching, and looking out on the water. The Inn was close to everything in town including the Beaufort Grocery Co which has incredible food. Their is also a bicycle... More

My first time to Beaufort and I really liked the location of this Hotel. The rooms and atmosphere is more like a Bed & Breakfast, with a great continental breakfast brought to your room! Loved the "Widows Peak" to sit out and up and watch the ships come in. Only complaint were the beds. Found them too soft and wound... More

Stayed on the 3rd floor in a very large room with a window seat overlooking the marina. Better than average bathroom. Refrigerator in room. Nice staff with good restaurant recommendations- they know family and upscale dining places, and the good bars- all within a 2 block area. Nice continental breakfast- fruit, juice, cereals, and several tea choices. We will stay... More
