We stayed in the efficiency room. It was perfectly clean and comfortable. There are no hotel or motel chains on Ocracoke so individually owned places like this are all there are to choose from. Edwards was completely fuss-free and quiet. The 10pm to 7am posted quiet times seemed to be fully complied with by the other guests. The shower was not "too small for a child" as one reviewer claimed. The TV is small and hard to hear from its location across the room but that is nit piking for a place that I can say little against. All that and we only paid $90 a night in season. You can't really ask for more. I would definitely come back, but I would rent one of the rooms with a frig and microwave because the restaurants on Ocracoke were very hit and miss. (see my other reviews). The only other thing I can remember wishing for was a place to prop my foot in the shower so I could shave more easily. Again, nit picking to even think of any complaints. There's really no reason to even consider another place to stay.
