Clean rooms. Very helpful, friendly, knowledgeable staff . We did not have reservations. An employee at The Hilton Garden in Kitty Hawk called the Elizabethan in Manteo. Upon arrival we called number posted on door. It was approximately 3 am. WE were greeted within 10 minutes. Very friendly and cheerful gentleman welcomed us and checked us in a room. I... More

Stayed overnight then headed over the bridge to the beach. Rooms were clean. The property is older but for the price and location was great. Dustin at the front desk was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and made great recommendations for local restaurants that we enjoyed during our stay. Bob's Diner great local favorite. Dirty Dick's was great... More

Enjoyed the friendly receptionists, especially Dustin who provided great recommendations for restaurants in the area. Rooms were comfortable though older property. Direct booking allowed us to get 10% using AAA. Ended up eating at Bob's then Get the Hell Out and Dirty Dicks which was fun and good! Refrigerator and microwave were convenient and helpful!

We had a bag sitting on the desk with some snacks and utensils and a john deere flashlight. We left for the day and when we returned it was gone. Went to the front desk and all they said they could do was give a 10 dollar credit and could do nothing else. The contents of the bag was worth... More

You told us when you came to the desk that there was trash in the top of the bag and it was explained that housekeeping thought the whole bag was trash and threw it away as such. At the time you were not sure exactly what was in the bag and we offered you the discount in good faith. If... More

I am a pilot and planned a trip for 4 persons last month. Reservations were made last minute (7 day cancellation policy which i respect) but the weather denied us.

Rajan P, Manager at Elizabethan Inn, responded to this review

I am sorry you disagree with our policy. However, you knew the cancellation policy when you made the reservation. The hotel can not be blamed for the weather. If we allowed everyone who changed their mind at the very last minute to cancel without charge, we would not be in business very long. Whether the hotel was or was not... More

My husband and I stayed there last night. We booked it last minute since it was one of the only pet friendly places left. When we opened the door to our room we were met with an overwhelming urine smell. It was so bad I left my bag in the car so it wouldn't touch anything. There were several light... More

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....
