Experienced a wonderful stay and beautiful wedding all coordinated by the Inn on Pamlico Sound. Loved having access to all of the amenities. The breakfast was amazing and loved having it delivered to our door every morning. Dinner was also great and their catering was fantastic. The town was a bit difficult as some places were not friendly and didn't seem to want business, which made it difficult some days as restaurants were not operating at full capacity and tended to close early or completely on certain days. Still the resort itself was amazing and would love to stay again if in the area.

We live about an hour north of here and were looking for a place to unwind and this place seemed to check all the boxes. This was our second trip in the past month and can only say one thing, the views are incredible. The accommodations are comfortable and inviting. The staff is extremely friendly and engaging and the food is delicious. If you are looking to disconnect and immerse yourself in the beauty of the Pamlico Sound, this place is for you.

My fiance and I spent last weekend at the Inn to celebrate my 40th birthday since other plans fell through due to COVID. It ended up being the most amazing weekend getaway. The staff was very friendly, the room was very clean, the bed was very comfortable, the views were amazing and the food was fantastic. I didn't want to leave. We will be back soon since we decided to have our wedding at the Inn in June of 2021!!!

My fiancé and I stayed at The Inn for their wedding event planning weekend. Our weekend was a dream. Upon our arrival there was a vacancy so we were upgraded to a room with a better view for free. All the staff is so helpful, kind and professional. Natasha, Melissa , and Meredith helped us all weekend with our many questions and were so fun to make plans with. We are so excited for our wedding in August! We know our friends and family will love The Inn. Everything from the restaurant was delicious! We ate breakfast and dinner here both nights and each meal was so amazing. The staff at the cafe Pamlico are top notch. Dallas And Ashley were so kind and made us feel at home. I cannot say enough good things about The Inn. August can’t come soon enough!

Wife and I needed a get away for a few days. No better place to do that than the Inn on Pamlico Sound. Hotel is Great staff go out of their way to make sure stay is perfect. There was a room problem with the first room we had but Alisha fixed the issue right away as soon as I told of the problem. Great job Alisha! Would recommend the Inn to anyone looking a great place to stay.
