The Inn on Pamlico Sound
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Buxton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 10, 2013

I have never seen an inn work any harder to anticipate their guests needs, this place was exceptional in every way. We stayed in "Lily" the room and the bed were very comfortable, our room had a wonderful view of the sound from French doors that led out onto our private deck with rocking chairs, Snacks are provider in room and in the common area. Huge number of movies available for in room viewing or in their personal media room if you're indoors for a rainy day.

Room Tip: We loved the room called "Lily" because of the view of the sound, and it was on the ground...

This was our first stay at the Inn and we'll certainly try to get back for a longer stay next time. The service is excellent, the staff are friendly and the food is great. We left our pillows behind and they shipped them back to us free of charge. Doesn't get much better than that !

During our time on Hatteras Island last week, we visited Café Pamlico at the Inn on Pamlico twice. Both meals were excellent. The ambiance is nice, top notch for Hatteras Island, and the service was above and beyond. Our server, Mandy, was great, making meal and appetizer suggestions, and even taking the time to write down lunch restaurant suggestions for our day trip to Ocracoke. We have been coming to Hatteras Island for years, and wish we had discovered the Café at the Inn before! After dinner we walked down the dock, and were impressed by the grounds.
We hope to make a solo trip in the spring, and plan to stay at the Inn. Keep up the good work! We'll see you soon!

Our experience with the Inn as the bride and groom was absolutely wonderful. I just wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy all of the amenities the Inn provides.

We got so many compliments from our wedding guests saying this was by far the best wedding they had ever been to. The food was wonderful, the staff was so accomodating, and Jennifer and Forrest were by far the best advocates during both preparation and the wedding day. These people know what they're doing!

I can't get married again, but I can say that we WILL be back to enjoy everything this place has to offer.

Room Tip: We stayed in Jasmine, and it was gorgeous. Lovely views of the sound.

What a wonderful time my wife and I had at the Inn. Everyone was gracious and accommodating. Plenty to do and then downtime comes easy also. A first rate dining experience and comfortable rooms were enjoyed. Try it....worth it!

Room Tip: One upstairs luxury king has a great view and a large wraparound porch to enjoy it all!

This place has it down - they have thought of EVERYthing that could make your stay inviting and comfortable from the well-appointed, cozy suites, to the little extras they supply throughout (in room snacks, morning coffee, 2,000 DVD library and viewing room, etc.) There was not a thing that we couldn't do either there or within a mile or two of the inn. The staff was tremendously hospitable and the food at their top-flight restaurant was fantastic. We can't wait to go back. A perfect end of summer getaway.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

I've just come back from an amazing weekend at your location. My best friend had her wedding weekend at your Inn and I cannot say how much we enjoyed our stay! Jennifer and Forest went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed and that we really felt like we were at home and happy all weekend. There was not a single request that they could not accommodate for us. The ceremony and reception were beautiful, beyond beautiful! The food was AMAZING. The Mahi-Mahi that we had for dinner was so great that I’m still craving more! If you are looking for somewhere to host your wedding, reception and relax for the weekend on Hatteras Island, I promise this is your place!!

The entire staff was super helpful and accommodating! Marty was always there to help answer any questions that we had. Brandt was our server every morning for breakfast and he was the BEST! Breakfast every morning was good, we tried something different each morning and not one morning were we disappointed. We left breakfast every morning so full and satisfied.

We stayed in the Oleander Room. The views were amazing and the bed very comfortable. There was even a nice pullout couch for the little flower girl to sleep on that she enjoyed. Sevena was our housekeeper and she was remarkable. She always made sure we had extra towels and pillows if we needed it.

The extra amenities at the Inn were above and beyond what we expected. Our group used the paddle boards and the kayaks every day we were there. We enjoyed the fire pit nightly and it was not uncommon to find someone in our group fishing off the dock late into the night. Jennifer and Forest even made sure that we had football on in the theater on Saturday so that my husband could watch his favorite college team while all the girls were busy getting ready.

When we checked in on Thursday there were the most delicious chocolate chip cookies that had obviously been made fresh and not from a premade package.

Hand’s down – it was an AMAZING weekend. I’m still dreaming and wishing I could turn back time and relive that weekend.

Kudos to the amazing staff!! Jennifer, Forest, Marty, Brandt and Sevena you all went above and beyond and it is sincerely appreciated!

Room Tip: Oleander was an amazing room. Great views, clean and super comfortable!
