As a former resident of the area, our family spent Thanksgiving in Snead's Ferry visiting old friends and needed a place to sleep. After considering several different options on and off the Island, we settled on Topsail Shores Inn based on the reviews found here. We were not disappointed.
Driving down I-95 the day prior to Thanksgiving continually pushed our arrival time further and further back due to accidents and general traffic. Coordinating via phone with Mike was wonderful and he stayed after hours to await our arrival. Thank you Mike!
Our initial response upon walking into the room was "clean!". The staff clearly cares about this aspect of the hotel. It smelled wonderful!
The rooms are not overly large, and space is at premium (we had two double beds for our kids), but the room is well appointed with comfortable beds & pillows (of which bed has four!), a new wall mounted flat screen TV, microwave, small fridge, and coffee maker with complimentary coffee, water, and snacks. Our room also had non carpeted floors with a nice simulated wood pattern which makes sense given the beach environment. We did have a small dog so this may have also been why we had the flooring we did. Makes sense either way.
In short, this is a gem of a find in this area. Given that it was more than $50 a night less than the hotel a few hundred yards down the road (which I have also stayed
in) and its convenient location coupled with the nice rooms this is a no brainer.
