“Basic, pleasant, very clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We stayed in one of the bungalows and had a pleasant evening. They are very " 50's motel", which is fun, very, very basic and super clean. The bed and remodeled bathroom were great. In this price catagory you will be very pleased. At other places when you pay such a reasonable price you are afraid of what you will get--not so with Edwards. The owners obviously take good care of this older property, and most importantly, keep it very clean.

Many years ago I passed through Ocracoke during a mosquito invasion and could not even get out of the car. Now, I've just spent two nights at Edwards and can't wait to go back! I stayed in one of the bungalow rooms. It was spotlessly clean and delightfully furnished with vintage 50s era furniture with super comfortable bed. The bungalows are "no frills", i.e. no coffee maker, hair dryer, pool, etc. however there is a TV, which you won't really need.

Head out in the morning for a three minute stroll to Ocracoke Coffee and bagel to get ready for what the day brings!

Room Tip: The bungalow is the best value, especially in the off season. There are other types of units with mo...

What a gem! We looked at several of the bed/breakfast inns on the island, but who needs a B&B when you can fix your own breakfast and enjoy it on your screened porch or out in the beautiful little courtyard -- and for about half the price! Cleanest place I have ever stayed -- absolutely spotless, and an incredible value for the money. Cottage had 2 full-size beds, flat-screen TV, well-equipped kitchenette w/full-size fridge and stove, and bathroom w/rain-head shower. Cottage had screened-in porch and opened into courtyard with comfortable chairs, picnic table and benches, and wonderful wooden swing hung beneath a shade tree. Have bicycles and charcoal grills for rent. Office staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Very convenient location. Just a wonderful, comfortable, relaxing place loaded with lots of charm and character. SO much nicer than the standard hotel/motel.

Room Tip: We stayed in their "efficiency courtyard room", which was absolutely perfect, but they off...

I absolutely love Edwards of Ocracoke!! Family run by the most thoughtful and warm folks!! We stay every year for Mother's Day with all of the 'Moms' in the family. We love to stay in the courtyard where we enjoy the afternoon shade of the most beautiful live oak!! So quiet. So warm. So absolutely perfect!! One year we got an envelope left on the step with a refund of .19 cents !! It was a minor math error on our bill - who does that these day?? Rare to find this quality of people that will take the time to ensure that they do the right thing!! They call us to let us know if there are ferry issues before coming so we can plan out trip around it!! These are good folks!!!! And they make you feel like you are coming home every time you come!! High high high recommendation for Edwards!!

I was traveling by myself and stayed in one of the bungalows. For $70 a night, it was a bargain. Clean, roomy, comfortable and well-maintained. Great location. Remember, though, it's a $70 per night room. Don't expect a $150/night room. The TV is small but then who goes to Ocracoke to watch TV! There was no shampoo in the shower. The wireless connection was a little weak and spotty. You can hear your neighbor in the next room when they are moving around. None of these are serious drawbacks. The owners were very nice and explained everything. The bike I rented was in excellent shape with lots of air in the tires (make the pedaling much easier). You get what you pay for at Edward's. I'll be back.

Room Tip: Think about a bungalow on the end. Less noise with other people only on one side of you.

We only were going to stay on Ocracoke for 1 night and found Edwards on Tripadvisor. Looked like a good spot and we were not disappointed.
We reserved online and received the confirmation right away. Our room was the end unit of the bungalow row (there are 5), clean as a whistle, throwback decorations, ample space, large wrap around porch with rockers outside. Walkable to whatever you want, coffe house, restaurants, shopping. This is a be back!

Room Tip: As advertised not all rooms have a fridge, we knew but make sure you check.
