We came for two days to work on our boat at a nearby marina. When we pulled in the driveway Lucy came out to welcome us to The Inn at Oriental. She was wonderful - very genuine and very caring about our trip and our stay. She checked us in, showed us our room and asked if we would like... More

Lucy and Lou provide a service warmed through with sweet interest and openness. The way they run their Inn characterizes the oppitimy of quintessential southern hospitality. The home is a wonderful mix of classic and modern, And the town of Oriental is filled with beauty and friendly people in every direction.

The charming decor, delicious breakfast, delightful happy hour conversation, and easy walking distance to restaurants, theater, and marina made this bed and breakfast the perfect place for our three day stay. A lovely setting, with time and effort put into unique details, such... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about The Inn at Oriental! I was met at the door by owners Lou and Lucy and welcomed in by name. Lucy then led me to my room and showed me all around the inn, even introducing me to the other guests during the inn-provided happy hour! The food was fantastic, service impeccable, room... More

Lou and Lucy are two of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. Very quaint (in a GOOD WAY), very clean, nicely decorated arranged B & B. Close to everything good breakfast. If we ever come back this way, we WILL stay here

Great place, great food. They took good care of me and my family. Their place is an easy walk to the stores and downtown. They were quick to give advice as to what there was to do in the area. Quick drive to Camp SeaGull/Seafarer.

My husband and I stayed with new owners Lucy and Lou at the inn this past weekend. We loved every bit of it! We were welcomed like family from the moment we arrived and it continued the entire weekend with "social hour" in the late afternoon and great breakfasts in the morning at a time of our choosing. They live... More
