We were in room #9, which was in the main building on the 2nd floor in the last room on the end. The room was clean and looked like it had been somewhat recently renovated. It did need more towel hooks or bars by the sink (which was outside of the bathroom) and in the bathroom itself (as there was only the one on the back of the bathroom door). The king bed was very high off the floor which my boyfriend didn't like, although we found a little step stool hiding under the bed after a few days. My boyfriend also found a soda cap that wasn't ours under the bed, which was a little icky. All of the surfaces were very clean though, as well as the fridge and the bathroom. We liked that it wasn't really busy, although they were full. It was a quick drive to Nags Head and the beaches. We also found some good places in Manteo. There were at least 2 outdoor cats living there, which were scared of strangers, but we love cats so they were fine. There was plenty of space to socially distance due to the COVID-19. Everywhere we went everything was open except the museums, except for when we went down to Hatteras where a lot of restaurants were closed due to COVID-19. They didn't specify if they had a recent outbreak down there or were just scared over the increased cases in NC, but there wasn't really anywhere to eat in Hatteras due to that. If anyone has any questions about anything, feel free to ask.

We were delighted to discover this clean, comfortable place to stay during our unexpected visit to Manteo NC. All the comforts of home at a manageable price. Conveniently located. The only drawback is that our room was upstairs, but we managed!

We were a little worried when we pulled into the parking lot, but we were charmed with our room. The mix of old antiques in the room is just lovely. I enjoy sewing, and there was an antique sewing machine in our room that was delightful to show to our kids. Not only that, but we had booked a room with 2 doubles, and our room had an extra little single bed so the kids were each able to have their own place to sleep. This is always a treat on vacation. Although it is right on the main road through the island, we did not hear any traffic noise. We did notice that the available rooms were upstairs, and another guest had a hard time getting up the stairs. This is a family run hotel, and they work very hard to keep it running smoothly. We were impressed by the early housekeeping schedule! We returned from breakfast to a clean room. The hotel is not really close the main attractions, but there is a lovely coffee shop within walking distance, along with a restaurant and a really fun Christmas shop. All of the main attractions are a short drive away. We would stay here again!

First time visitor to the Scarborough Inn and was very impressed! It was cute, quaint, and extremely clean. Loved the antique décor, wood floors, ambiance, and ease of parking - this small-town inn was perfect for a three-night get away. The room offered plenty of space to unpack our items - there was a large closet with lots of hangers, mini-fridge (with freezer), a coffeemaker, lots of space around the sink, and a table with two chairs. It was so convenient to everything the OBX offers. The owner was so nice and welcoming!!! Loved this place and will definitely be staying at Scarborough Inn again very soon!
