the staff was the most friendly and accomadating people I have ever met, if I needed any thing they would take care of it. the balcony was the best part, I could set and people watch all day if I wanted or walk to any shops or eating places. I will go back one day.

This motel on Ocracoke is in a great location overlooking Silver Lake. There are many shops and restaurants within walking distance. We rented a two bedroom suite. It was very comfortable, except for the beds. These are the WORST beds we have ever slept on. The property needs some upkeep and basic landscaping. Don't waste your time with the free... More

This was not easy to read but I do thank you for your review. I was especially dismayed about the poor customer service you referenced. That is not the way it is supposed to be.

Great little hotel in the heart of Ocracoke. Very clean. Decor is dated, but adds to charm. Wood floor and paneling on walls. Complimentary continental breakfast. Within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Can be a bit noisy at night, with The Jolly Roger right across the street. Would definitely stay here again and again!

We spent one night here while visiting Ocracoke Island - what a hoot! We had Room 11 located above the main office and absolutely loved this suite that had formerly been the bar for the hotel! Where have you ever had a room that had a full sized wet bar complete with about 8-9 bar stools, king size bed and... More

Very charming and quaint hotel right on Silver Lake. Great location with awesome restaurant right across street. All the staff I dealt with were so friendly and accommodating.

We stopped in for a quick overnight stay . The location was great, the room was very clean, and staff very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are typical vintage beach style, but very clean. Shops, restaurants, and attractions are all within walking distance. I'd definitely stay again. And, BTW, the matresses in our room were not top of the line... More

We booked this motel last minute and read all the reports on tripadvisor but had no choice but to stay. We were pleasantly surprised since we imagined we were staying at Bates motel.

Ocracoke is a great and quick getaway for us. We love that they offer pet-friendly rooms and understand the additional fee for the additional cleaning needed. We stayed 3 nights and, unfortunately, our room was never cleaned. While we received a small credit, it didn't equal the added surcharge for having pets. Additionally it took over a week for them...

Clean and adorable. Older beach home feel even with the dated room's attire. Nice touches with fridge and balcony with chairs. Comfortable and centrally located to everything you'd want to do on the island. Parking was fine and plenty room out back. Staff courteous and pleasant. Continental breakfast offered but coffee shop next door.
