We did not pick a sound view cause much higher cost, but did spend a lot of time on the pier and swimming pool so we did not miss out on much. the pool and hot tub were usually empty, but were clean. Lots of spiders around pier, which I think could make a nicer impact. view of sunset always... More

We really enjoyed our visit! My daughter works for Wild Horse Adventure Tours and we came from Georgia to visit. The staff is so nice and accommodating. You can sit by the pool looking out into the sound & you don't have to move to see the beautiful sunsets. They share their pier with a water sports rental company, paddle... More

The room was large and comfortable. Skylights make it bright in the morning. Small kitchen area with coffee maker and dorm size refrigerator is nice for a longer trip (we were only there for a weekend so didn't use). Staff are Southern-style friendly. The complimentary bikes are fun and we used them to ride to dinner one night. Close to... More

I was very pleasantly surprised at the resort. The room was amazing, complete with the mini kitchenette. That was perfect for just the two of us. The AC worked perfectly and kept things comfortable. The amenities were awesome, as we received essentially the same things as people renting houses. The beach was absolutely gorgeous! Best sunset view ever! I will... More

Lovely hotel, amazing views over The Sound, the best sunsets ever. Awesome watching the birds scoop fish from the water. BBQ by the pool which was a great addition. Hotel a bit weary, but worth it for the location. Very easy going staff and loved the quieter end of the Outer Banks.

The Inn at Corolla Light is a great Sound-side spot to chill before your vacation rental opens up. And you can't beat driving up on a Friday, crashing here for a night, and avoiding the Saturday traffic. Also, if you're a big reader the decks overlooking the sound are a fantastic place to turn some pages. Kudos for being locally... More
