We were there for a nights stop over. Very very very clean. Simple and cozy! Nice check in. It was windy and cold...no trouble getting extra blanket! If the tv had been wall mounted to be a little higher up it would easier too see. It's sits low on a dresser....but no big deal!

We usually take a yearly trip to Ocracoke, in fact going this coming weekend. Pony Island is always clean and comfortable. We have stayed in their end unit suites, as well as the top floor suite with hot tub. All the rooms are nice and inviting, and most of all, clean. Unfortunately, we won;t be staying at the Pony Island...

We had a nice suite on the 3rd floor with a kitchenette. Everything was spic & span clean and smelled fresh. Owner & staff were/are very friendly. No complaints here however the wall between the adjoining set of rooms did allow for voices to carry but it was our living room area so no real harm. Would def stay there...

Stayed here recently and enjoyed a clean and quiet large room. There were only 7-8 guests in the 3-story unit by car count and the owner put the majority on the third floor while the first two floors remained almost empty. No elevator so schlepping my 37 lb suitcase up was not appreciated. No shampoo provided which seems tacky for...

Price was OK..room was clean, but small. Amenities basic. However, pool was nice, and location convenient. Bikes for rent, but they were pretty beat (end of season). Best part was the restaurant next door which will be a separate review.

Our experience at Pony Island Motel on Ocracoke was just what we expected. Our room was clean and simple, the bed comfortable. We found the staff friendly and helpful about local sites, walks and restaurants. Our room/ suite was on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool, which was clean and inviting. We stayed just one night and spent the bulk...
