Bluff Shoal Motel

Reviewed October 1, 2010

This little motel looks nothing from the front, they have just 7 rooms, but step into the basic rooms and look out of the window. WOW! a beautiful vista of the water, boats and birds. Sit in the "Garden on the Dock" and soak up the calming, peaceful atmosphere. Wonderful place to chill and bide a while. I wish we could have stayed longer.

An older "70's" type motel (which I love) that is the cleanest I have ever stayed in. Loved everything about it - can't wait to go back !!

I have been staying at Bluff Shoals for over 10 years, and I never tire of it. I like going during the off season best. I like grilling out and relaxing by the scenic Silver Lake shore. I like the convienence of the grocery store next door. The parking is great. The rates for rooms are good. I also enjoy sitting on the front porch watching the local activities. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed here for 2 nights the staff was friendly. What a great small little gem. I think they have like 7 rooms total we parked right in front of our room and only used the car to drive to the beach and back. Everything was clean and in good working order. We have already booked our next trip for this year and can't wait to go back...

We were first off the ferry and the owner offered us the newly remodeled apartment at the back for a great rate. 2 bdrms, 1 bath (clean enough to eat off), full kitchen, living room and screened in porch. Very clean, he even washes the bedspreads. Free bikes and a dock on Silver Lake with adirondack chairs. We're going back end of this month for another stay. Couldn't beat the location with a stick.

Bluff Shoal is an older, but meticulously maintained motel right on Silver Lake Harbor. There are only about 7 rooms, and they are basic motel rooms, but the rooms and grounds were spotless and very comfortable. We were there in the off-season, and arrived on the first ferry from Cedar Island. We weren't sure of their check-in time, so stopped in to inquire on our way to lunch. We were pleasantly surprised when we were told our room was already cleaned and we could check in. There are comfortable chairs on the front porch, so you can relax and watch either the streetside or the waterfront. The prices are surprisingly reasonable, too. Very relaxing place, most hospitable hosts, and one of the cleanest motel rooms we've ever stayed in.

We had a fantastic 5 days at the Bluff Shoal. It's absolutely spotless, and has an excellent location right in Ocracoke Village. The service we received was top-notch. It has a few amenities that elevate it above similar locations, particularly its location right on the harbor with a deck for guests to use. There's also coffee (though not a full breakfast) in the mornings and bikes for guests to use. The motel's small size allowed for privacy. Prices are affordable even in high season. Highly recommended!!
