This is a small hotel with patios/balconies right on the harbor. The balconies are HUGE - very deep, with several lounge chairs plus a circular wooden picnic table with two benches. The sunset pictures are real -- picture postcard perfect. The harbor is not noisy, and no strong diesel or fishy smells - at least in April. The only noise problem came from a group of guys feeding the seagulls one night, so everyone had to put up with the cawing and begging for hours until they calmed down. Hardly the properties' fault. Inside, these are one bedroom, 1.5 bath apartments. (A few larger units are available). There is a full kitchen, including range, stove, microwave, full fridge, coffee maker, and small dishwasher. Cookware in our unit was new. Furniture and most fixtures were dated to the 90's but the bed was very comfortable and reasonably firm. There is no dining area other than the patio or bar height stools at the front of the kitchen counter. Small seafood market about 3 doors down, you can watch from your patio the men cleaning the fish and feeding the rest to the pelicans, then you can eat the filet in the evening. Location is perfect - right in town and within walking distance to several shops, restaurants and several attractions, like the little museum, British cemetery, lighthouse (these are each about 5 blocks away). Nicest restaurant on the island(Dajio) is virtually across the street. Also recommend the wonderful walk along Howard Street - old cemetery, beautiful trees, and pottery store across from the motel. Parking is limited, and the spaces are smallish, same as all over the island. Not a good town to have your SUV or big pickup. You'll just get frustrated and annoy others. Everything was clean, and they had a useful texting system in place when we needed anything. Overall a fabulous experience. Despite the 10 hour drive, we will be back.

When we first arrived, I was sure that I would end up giving the place a 5 star review. All rooms are suites with a full kitchen, small love seat and tv in a sitting room and a great deck over looking silver lake. The furnishings were typical beach condo grade, but everything was really clean. The owners were very attentive but even though, we had some issues. The ice maker had to be repaired, the dishwasher didn't work and one of the owners unlocked the door and would have walked in on us had i not jumped up and grabbed the door!! It was a mixup and they called and apologized, but it seems like they should have a better system in place to avoid that kind of intrusion. Nice location, great views, decent rooms but frustrating that the equipment in the room wasn't checked out before renting it out and a little concerning that there isn't a better systme in place to ensure guests aren't surprised by someone entering the room.

It has been a tumultuous year since last summer's stay on Ocracoke. Especially with the COVID, as well as other family illnesses. And somehow I have only now noticed I did not post a review! It was our 9th seasonal stay on Ocracoke Island, which we have come to think of as our home away from home. We live in Columbia, Missouri, and gladly mage The trip annually to stay a week on this incredible island. The last 6 year's we have stayed at Captain's Landing, often in the penthouse, and almost as often at the adjacent Captain's Cottage. Both offer outstanding accommodations, and views of Silver Lake Harbor that are exceptional. Part of my daily activity is dedicated to photography, and this waterfront site often offers breathtaking views. Captain's Landing is well-managed with pride of ownership and customer service abundantly evident. The location is convenient for short walks harbor-watching or going out for excellent meals. We are looking forward to this year's visit, as always, and encourage other Ocracoke visitors to allow Captain's Landing to be your home away from home on Ocracoke Island.

Although my husband and I have been going to Ocracoke for the past 50 years , we’ve never stayed right on Silver Lake! We usually rent vacation homes, but this time it was just the two of us, and Captains Landing was PERFECT! Three weeks at this convenient small suite hotel was perfect! Our hosts, Betty and George, are awesome and there was no need that went unmet! The “suite” was much larger than expected as was the balcony! We were comfortably able to entertain friends for dinner and we enjoyed all the space and privacy. We were in Suite 104, first floor, no steps. The wonderful staff were so accommodating from Deena in the front office to Javier and his wife who were an excellent team for cleaning, etc. If you are looking for a perfect, convenient stay in the quaint village of Ocracoke, then this is your place!

We had an excellent stay at Captain's Landing. Beautiful views over the water and gentle breezes to cool the hot summer days. Thank you Deena for the tea kettle and to all the helpful, friendly staff.
