What a difference a couple years make. I had to stay here a few years ago and swore I would never return. But I was forced to stay on business and the other properties in town were sold out. Dreading the inevitable I went here - WOW what a difference. Yes, it's an older property and the common issues you... More

The pictures that they have posted on this site are made to lure you in. That this place is really nasty. They painted the front half of the hotel and when you get close you can see how they really did a cheap job painting it, missing a bunch of spots and not even painting some of the adjacent buildings....

My stay at this Inn was one my worst experiences. I have being staying at this hotel before the name changed and never experienced such bad service. We were not accommodated for what we previously registered for and were not offered any compensation in any way. My room was not cleaned after our first night and there was not enough... More

The staff & management were very friendly. The rooms were very clean. My husband & I will stay here whenever we visit Williamston. The manager went the extra mile to make our stay comfortable. The cleaning staff did an excellent job.

The advertisements are all false. The "free internet" is nonexistent. The swimming pool was not in service and looked very dilapated--unlike the pictures that were promoted on the internet advertisement. I also specifically asked the person I reserved the room with if the pool was open yet and was told yes it was. The outside of the hotel basically looked... More

This is a rundown motel that reeks of smoke when you walk into the lobby. The rooms are grubby and grim and also smell of smoke. The bathrooms are stained and wornout although there was hot water. While you can live with these deficiencies in a pinch the fact someone tried to get into our room (which was exposed to... More

My husband and I reserved a two night stay at the Inn at Moratac, Williamston, NC, after a representative from Hotels.com recommended it. This place is a dump. I think it's partially abandoned and I believe only one or two other rooms were occupied. I didn't feel safe and the room didn't appear sanitary at all. Mats in the bottom... More

Around the back where they would have put us it would have been quiet but strange people were wandering there . The outside of the building needed maintenance and grounds were overgrown. We... More

My husband and I stopped in Williamston recently driving from Massachusetts to MyrtleBeach. We had a great meal, a clean,quiet room, and a great breakfast at the Inn all doe under $110.00. No kidding! The inn is older, but very clean, the front desk staff is pleasant. I would recommend the Inn at Moratoc.

Just spent a few days at the Inn At Moratoc for a family reuninon. The place was not as bad as some of the reviews I read. This is a small town and there is not a lot of things going on in the town. So, I didn't expect a stay at the 4-Seasons for 69 bucks a night. The... More
