Reservations were made several weeks ago by my daughter-in-law for a birthday celebration stay for my husband and me. Our room appears clean, hence the 3 stars, but it has to be 120 degrees in here. Nobody turned on the air conditioner in anticipation of our arrival. It's 92 outside. The room is so hot and so musty, I must... More

Pretty average, nothing great, but nothing bad to say either. Got a great rate, the desk clerks were very helpful and friendly. I would stay there again. About a 10 min walk or 5 min drive from downtown.

Rooms were old, stale and musty smelling, looked dirty, and there were no shower curtains in either room. Stayed for a girls weekend with family from Raleigh area. Realized it is not a big chain motel [there are none in Manteo/Roanoake Island] but for the cost which was over $200 per room per night for a standard double room you... More

We stayed here as a birthday getaway mini vacay weekend. Since we are from North Carolina we really love the beach. We usually stay in Nags head when we come in town for a quick get away, but this time my hubby wanted to do something different, with a little familiar. This hotel is one of the nicest in Manteo....

The motel rooms could use some updating. But, the front desk clerks are very courteous. And as it is one of the only pet friendly hotels on all of Roanoke Island, it is certainly booked for that reason. It is super convenient to all tourist points and has a pretty good Italian place adjacent.

My husband and I have stayed her several times and were pleased that they could accommodate our request for a one night visit before going on to our beach cottage. Unfortunately that was short lived as soon as we entered our room. The carpet(pet friendly)was filthy and had obvious pet stains all over it. Room was in total disrepair, moldy... More

We stayed at this hotel on our way to the Outer Banks for a Family Week at the Beach. We chose this hotel because it was close to Fort Raleigh National Historic Site. We went to the performance of "The Lost Colony and enjoyed it very much. We also toured the Elizabethan Gardens and the Aquarium. This hotel is centrally... More

This hotel is very much in need of renovation! Very disappointed when we arrived and the outdoor pool was covered and unusable. We did find out afterwards that there is an indoor pool that is quite nice! The smell in the room hit you as you opened the door, musty, stale air..my guess is, from the way the ceiling looked,...

The Elizabethan name is apt as it reminded me of places I've stayed in England. There, "shabby chic", i.e. worn, seems to be the norm and that's the deal here. It's pricey as alternatives are few so unless you want to drive from off island you'll pay for convenience.
