3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed at the Inn recently and have stayed several times before. The Inn could be so much better, just wishing they would renovate the rooms and baths. The office and cleaning staff are all extremely nice and welcoming. The sunsets and view are fabulous, its just the rooms need a complete overhaul and the a/c units changed. Seems like the... More

Quick 2 day weekend visit to celebrate daughters wedding. Nice quiet section of Outer Banks. Hotel not so great considering the price. Continental breakfast nothing to write home about. Staff was friendly though. Free use of bikes. Pool okay but cold. Cool wood pier. Ask for a "Sound" view.

Was taking a scenic drive up the Outer Banks and booked a night at this Inn over the phone. I was going to arrive late, and one of the owners called me to check on me and give me check-in instructions... very kind! A nice, well decorated room with a beautiful view of the Sound. An ok continental breakfast, but... More

We were there to do genealogy research on my wife's family, who were from Currituck County, so amenities were not all that important. There is a branch of the Currituck Library at Corolla which we used (in addition to the one on the mainland). We wanted to see Old Corolla Village, the lighthouse, and the wildlife center. My wife's grandfather... More

We had a wonderful view of the sound, but that was the only wonderful thing I can say about our 2 night stay there. The room smelled sickly sweet from some kind of carpet deodorizer , plus the air conditioner air smelled moldy. The room was dusty and our sink was not cleaned the second day. Because of the smell,... More

Spider webs all over the door and screen slider that would make Disneys haunted house jealous. Had to kill one getting in the room each time I opened the door. Bad week for biting flies when we were there made worse by a gross fly infested trash can at the pool, looked like it had not been emptied for a... More

Beautiful location, but just an average property. The whole place needs an update. There are a ton of bugs and spiderwebs on the exterior walkways. Our room wasn't very clean when we arrived (hair in the bathroom floor, food left in fridge from previous tenant). We had also reserved a soundfront room, which we did not get. They include a...

Beautiful sunset!!! Lots of water activities. I would recommend this hotel for couples looking for quiet place. No direct beach access. Furniture and appliances are bit outdated. Complementary breakfast.

We stayed with our family this August. The location on the sound is great, the kids had a good time on the dock leading out into the sound, and swimming etc in the sound. The pool area is great and there is a gas grill if you are inclined to use it. The breakfast was great, and the dining area... More
