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.

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... More

The rooms are clean and adequate and the office manager is very accommodating . We request a room on the older side and preferably facing the... More

Only stayed one night on Ocracoke, will definately spend more time next trip. We stayed in one of the cottages. Nice room, quiet, clean, walking distance to many places to eat. Front desk is not open all night so call if you may be checking in late, sure glad I did.

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.

Excellent stay and excellent service. Clean comfortable room with microwave, fridge and coffee maker facing the very clean pool with plenty of lounge chairs. AC was working great during the heatwave! Kind and friendly owners who were didn't have a problem with a single night rental, where most hotels req. two night stay. We walked to everything, restaurants, shops, coffee... More
