“Heads Up”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

Everyone should be aware that are TWO Scarborough Inns...the one near the waterfront is the Scarborough House Inn (more of a B&B), the other is the Scarborough Inn and is on highway 64 (a motel). The motel is owned by the daughter in law of the B&B owner. We thought we were staying at the B&B but when we went to check in we were told we were at the motel. We cancelled our reservations and stayed at the wonderful Roanoke Island Inn instead and it was perfect.

Stayed August 2011, traveled with family

If you don't want to spend a lot on a hotel in Nags Head, consider staying at this inn in Manteo. It's right across from what used to be the Weeping Radish (relocated to Rt. 168) and the Christmas shop, and Nags Head is only about 10 minutes away. There are also nice shops and restaurants on the Manteo waterfront, and the aquarium is not too far. As for the hotel, our room was larger than expected with nice furnishings and a shared balcony with seating. You won't get a lot of amenities with this hotel, but if you're more concerned about being in a quiet location without spending a lot of money, check this place out.

An excellent value. This romantic inn is a real OBX find. Nicely located near one the the best OBX restaurants, and with a nice family restaurant across the street, its location is a plus. Room #16 is a romantic hide away. Rebbecca the proprietor is very pleasant.

Several family members and I traveled to Manteo and stayed at the Scarborough Inn the week before Christmas to attend my niece’s wedding. Everything about the trip was delightful, including this wonderful little inn. My room was charming, unique, comfortable, and clean. Rebecca, the co-owner, was very responsive to my questions, friendly, and knowledgeable about the town. I look forward to going back – often.

The Inn’s only (minor) drawback – or at least it’s a drawback during the off-season – is the front desk’s limited hours. However, as Rebecca does it all – reservations, front desk, cleaning – it’s understandable that she can’t have 24-hour service. She did, however, make every effort to work around my late-arrival.

The Scarborough is a Very Old property and needs to be updated. While the room appeared to be clean, the carpet was so old you could not tell. The sheets were very worn as well as the towels. The towels looked like the ones I use to wash my car. Also, it is not a bed and breakfast. When we checked in the pre-wrapped pastries were by the coffee maker and were frozen. I guess these were the breakfast for the next morning. There are many places to stay in Manteo and I would not recommed the Scarborogh Inn.

The Scarborough Inn on Roanoke Island is without question one of the most charming places we've ever stayed. The room was small but cozy and well appointed. It contained a comfortable double bed and more resembled an old fashioned bedroom than a hotel room. Not only did it have a refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot, but the inn keeper had also thoughtfully provided a small bowel of creamers and a tray of ice cubes in the fridge for our convenience. The backyard took me back to my grandmothers yard in rural Indiana and contained vintage plants and a round concrete picnic table where we ate our supper. If we ever return to the Outer Banks of NC we will definitely reserve #14 in advance. It exceeded our expectations.

This is my third time here for business travel. This is an ok place and the value is good. A few things could be painted and replaced but overall acceptable. Ask for a room away from the busy road. Also, don't expect wireless, unless you take a room near the road!
