I loved everything about this hotel. Super nice office staff, amazingly clean room, and available without a reservation. Just what we needed to make us want to go back again and again. We will definitely look this place up and stay longer next time.

What a friendly staff!!!! The rooms are extremely clean. The location is the best. Swimming pool is great. Best of all are the bike rentals. I had the best and funnest time of my life with those bikes, I was able to see areas of the island not accessible by car. Doing so I was able to get "GREAT" photos... More

Stayed here for on night this past May. The room was on the first floor, plenty of close parking available, and our room was spotless. The desk staff were very friendly, and had copies of all the menus of the local restaurants available on their desk, which made choosing a restaurant that much easier.

I've been traveling to Ocracoke for 40 years and staying at the Pony Island for the last 11. Clean rooms, great pool, and friendly staff. Their suites are a great value too, allowing our family to eat in and save some money.

The motel is nice and clean and the staff was very friendly. It's located within walking distance to almost everything on Ocracoke and there is a pool if you want to cool off. I would definitely stay here again if I come back to Ocracoke.

Was happy to be able to get a last minute booking at this hotel. Room on third floor, (301) which was a struggle for me, (no elevator, so lots of stairs) but we ended up with a suite. Facilities were very clean but furnishings very dated, old and thrown together with a dilapidated bench for a coffee table -- come... More

Lovely motel, close to everything, clean and easy to find. The staff are very friendly and easygoing. I was amazed to notice their reservation system is totally manual...as in on paper! Time warp for me, but then again okracoke is like taking a step back in time too!

While it's not on the water, the Pony Island Motel does have a very nice pool for the kids. The whole facility is well maintained and does have a great restaurant for breakfast or lunch. Located right on the main highway close to everything.
