Staff is super friendly. Pool was large and clean. Room was roomy and VERY clean. Would highly recommend.Great price for the area too. Parking was plentiful and area was quiet. If we are ever in Ocacroke we will stay there again.

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.

I rented a few bikes from Pony Island to ride around the island for a few hours. Their rate is affordable, only $2 an hour. The ladies that checked us out where really friendly as well. The bikes were in good working order. I will definitely be renting bikes again from this place.

I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in and had to fill out a paper card - all reservations were kept in a card file and we had actual keys to our room! It was like stepping back in time. The room was clean and spacious, and we had a party of 3 so I was again pleasantly surprised to... More

This is an older motel but very well maintained and obviously remodeled since the bathroom had a great deep tub and a nice sink as well. It is conveniently located right across from a Variety store (which was a small grocery store and had tourist-y items as well). One can also walk everywhere in Ocracoke from this location - and...

Arrived with the last ferry, just before sunset. Found this motel, as it was recommend by another passenger. Check in was quick. Staff very polite and informative. Gave good dinner recommendations. We stayed in the old part of the motel. And you could smell that it's old. But not in a bad way. The room was clean. Actually spotless. Probably... More

This is the first time I stayed on this island. The name comes from the nickname the locals have for the island, due to the (former) presence of wild horses. We had the room at the end of the newer addition on the bottom floor. Rooms were bigger and had more amenities (refrigerator, microwave etc). Staff was very friendly and... More
