“Excellent ..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

We've been visiting the Roanoke for approaching 20 years. D' is an outstanding host, and I appreciate her helpful attitude and interest in our comfort. Her staff is professional and non-invasive.

The Roanoke is one of the few inns around that you can have *total* privacy if you wish. The inn was designed with privacy in mind, yet you can interact with other guests if you wish on the breeze way or in the large living room. The continental breakfast has always been a high point for me, in that I can schedule eating when and where I want, as opposed to a sit down baon and eggs meal. I can recommend Sam and Omies across the bridge if you want a phenominal meat and eggs breakfast.

It's one of our favorites, and we will be back again and again !!

We stayed there with friends in August for five days and loved it. The rooms are spacious, charming and very comfortable. Sleep quality excellent, despite the fact that it was on the ground floor our room was very quiet. D' was very helpful and recommended excursions and restaurants. Great place to stay just a short drive away from the wonderful National Seashore.

Manteo is absolutely one of the best places in North Carolina if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway. The Roanoke Island Inn is one of those places you never want to leave and can't wait to go back. Definately no dissapointments here except for having to leave and go home.

Staff was just terrific. Helped me find places to eat and shop. Room was lovely with great views and the porch next to my room was cool, breezy and restful.

My husband and I stayed only for one night but wish we could have stayed longer. everyone was so friendly, the room and bed were very comfortable and the view from our room was amazing. The icing on the cake would have been a hot breakfast but the continental breakfast was good and the fresh peaches from the market were right on time! we would recommend this B&B to anyone and definitely stay there again if we are in the area. Thank you Roanoke Inn!

In Manteo for a wedding and decided to pick this inn as it was one of the bride and groom's recommended places. So happy that we did because it was absolutely charming and incredibly convenient as all of the wedding events were in the downtown area of Manteo! The best part were the great people that take care of the inn and its guests. I was a huge fan of the butler's pantry as it came in quite handy late at night for snacks!
