Came into town on Thursday night, and had stayed at the Best Western on the west side the first night, and then stayed at the Manteo Friday and Saturday night, with a huge group all in town for a wedding. I found the Manteo grossly over priced for what they had to offer. The room we stayed in was average, one of the bath robes and one of the bath towels on the first night had tattered edges, there was mildew spots all over the shower, and our room was very dark and had a view of a parking lot, when friends of ours had a lake view room for the same price. The restaurant, "Smack Dab" served a great lunch, the food was delicious, however was not at all equipped to serve the breakfast buffet to a full hotel. After we checked out we noticed an extra 50+ dollars in "taxes" not just GST and PST but a "Hotel tax" and also an "Additional night tax" I understand if these are valid taxes, however when the room was reserved I made sure to ask if there are any hidden charges, as we have been charged extra "resort fees" at hotels before, and just wanted to make sure to stick to budget, and was not told of these from the front desk staff. Out of the 3 front desk staff I dealt with while there, two were very friendly, and informative, and one was downright rude, and almost snooty. I would not recommend staying at this hotel again, although the grounds and the facility is gorgeous, and their is a beautiful view from the lake view rooms, it is not worth nearly what you pay to stay there. Two nights and one room service breakfast cost us over 530 dollars. Not impressed!
