We were just passing through on our way to Hatteras and stayed one night. We were pretty tired from driving up all day and got in from the Cedar Island Ferry about 8:20. The reception was prompt and businesslike, if not very friendly. We stayed in room 102 (single queen), it was pretty clean. The room was fairly large for... More

This was our first trip to the area and are so glad we chose to stay at Pony Island. From the first contact to make reservations to checkout we found the staff most helpful and courteous. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. I have to admit some concern from some of the reviews I read also. However it is... More

We've stayed at the Pony Island Inn before in one of the 'mini-suites'. It was very clean and comfortable. This time, we decided to stay in a cottage. We stayed in Pony Island #2. It was wonderful! The price was much cheaper than most of the homes you can rent for a week on the Island, but the kitchen was... More

We wanted to take the kids to Ocracoke to hit the beach, day trip to Hatteras, wander around Ocracoke, fly kites, generally stay busy - this was a perfect place to crash - it is no frills - don't forget to pack your hairdryer if you need one on your beach trip! but it is spotless clean and the folks...

I visited the island on my yearly trip over Memorial Day weekend. As always the Pony Island Motel was in wonderful shape and everything about this stay at Pony Island Motel was perfect. From the front desk to the maid service everything was perfect. This is a wonderful place to stay when you visit this beautiful island. Lynn S. Greensboro... More

Nice area for morning walks, very clean property and room, with coffee maker, fridge, microwave, with 2 Queen beds. The mattresses were not too comfortable, but were fair. The pad on the mattress was vinyl, which made it hot, but there was a fabric pad on top. Only improvement needed were to provide more comfortable mattresses and not use the... More

We originally booked a suite but with family coming with us, decided to take two rooms in the older part of the motel. The clean and simple rooms were fine for us since we don't spend much time in them anyway. The only thing missing was a hair dryer which I learned I can live without. I would stay there... More

We liked the 3:00 pm check in time. We took our one suitcase to the second floor suite that we had reserved. We were in the room for all of 15 minutes and then left the motel to enjoy the island. When we got back to the room at around 5:30 pm there was a message on our telephone from... More

My SO and I stayed here on our massive road trip down the east coast. It certainly seemed clean, front desk was helpful when we had a problem with the internet (it's wireless with a password, but I had to choose a different password setting than the default on my Mac.) Otherwise good internet, we had a strong signal the... More
