My family of four stayed here for a long weekend in October. We rented a suite which had two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a living room. The room was clean, updated, and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare all of our meals. The view from our balcony was very nice; we could watch the... More

Wonderful spot in the heart of the island. Visited for a long weekend with friends and family. can't say enough about the staff and the location. Rooms are perfect for a family of 4 we had a suite and loved every minute of it. The views from the balcony are perfect.. Can't wait to return!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights and came off the ferry from the mainland not knowing what to expect from this property. While this is not for people who like chain hotels, it was perfect for us. We like to travel to places which are off the beaten path and as surfers and boating enthusiast often find... More

The room was barely adequate. Small. Seemed like no place to put anything down. The bed squeaked when I got in or out. No phone. Very small TV and no TV guide of any sort. Bathroom exhaust fan shook and rattled - seemed wise not to turn it on. I was glad they had a small refrigerator. I liked the... More

We had a two night reservation in a suite the first weekend of September. The suite included two bedrooms, one full bath, a kitchen, dining area, living room, and front deck with a hammock and Adirondack chairs. I would describe the decor as old fashion beachy, but the rooms were clean and comfortable and there was plenty of space throughout... More

I didn't give it a high rating, but I would stay here again. We stayed the first week of September 2015 and we had a dog with us. Everyone was very nice. There are a few rooms that they save for people with animals and they seem to be in the back. There is someone with a trailer living in... More

We stayed for one night. The room was very basic with no frills. It had a queen bed, 2 nightstands, TV, chair and a small dorm size refrigerator. The balcony had 2 chairs, table and an awesome hammock. The room looked over the harbor from across the street. The continental breakfast was bagels, fruit, mini muffins - but was included... More

Sometimes there's nothing better than an old fashioned small brick motel without pretensions. This one is clean, well kept, and beautifully located in the tiny heart of Ocracoke's Silver Lake area. From its 1950s-vintage pastel tiled bathrooms to the narrow concrete front porch outside all its few rooms, the place oozes honest charm. Don't come here if you require luxury,... More
