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

our room was old & a hodgepodge of furniture put together without any rhyme or reason. The place was old & appeared unrestored although it was kept clean.......You forgot about the disorder when you looked at your waterfront view of the Sound........there is a nice Pier going out into the Sound for a even better view and photo opportunities..........the Hotel...

Thank you for staying at the Inn and for your thoughts on our accommodations. This past Spring we replaced the furniture in most of the sound front rooms so perhaps you just missed seeing our renovations.

We stayed for just the weekend with our two Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. We had such a wonderful time! The dogs loved the walks along the sound and the swimming too. The view was beautiful and the room comfortable. I would highly recommend the Inn at Corolla Light.

Location is good but the facility is too old and in serious need of updating. Our stay was very uncomfortable. The a/c in woefully inadequate, our room was terribly small and in need of repair, and outside room noise was loud.

Came here on a family trip. So very relaxing, but the resort provided family games such as bingo,surfing, sand castle competitions & more! Shopping was very close by and a bike ride to light house and gorgeous sunsets. Will definitely return.

We visited in early May, before the summer rush and the conditions were ideal. This hotel was our first stop in a five day visit to the Outer Banks. We weren't disappointed.
