Something biting me. Musty smell in room.

To call this place dog eared is to be kind. The indoor pool is drained and out of commission. The bedding is from the Elizabethan era. The bathroom. Ick. Old and nasty. And had not been properly cleaned in a long time. Hairs in the shower stall when we arrived. Thank God it was just for one night. The owners are milking this place and not putting anything into it.

Nothing

It was nice but its an older Inn but it was not bad but i prefer something a little bit closer to the beach!! But definitely satisfied!!

The Inn was convenient to the historic sites on Roanoke Island. The staff were very friendly and helpful. COVID has diminished the amenities but the property was well kept and had options for grilling near the rooms.

Separate buildings appear to be of different age and quality. Main building appears to be nicer than the rear buildings. Is more of a 2 star than 2.5 star property.

You are just paying for the location. The hotel itself is very outdated and in dire need of repairs. Exposed rusty bathroom ceiling fan. Toilet that doesn’t flush until 4-5 flushes. Rusty refrigerator. Musty smells. Dingy bathroom overall.

Good place to stay

Liked nice setting. Didn’t like overall upkeep of property and room. Didn’t like low toilet seat.

Had everything in the room you would need: Refrigerator, microwave, ironing board with iron, hair dryer.

Front desk staff were terrific. At check-in the receptionist was friendly, efficient, and helpful, not only suggesting a restaurant that matched my request but calling to verify that they had outdoor dining. Property itself is not unclean but rundown. Not good value for the money.

We were not happy with the condition of the room.

Hotel was old and dirty, our room had a water leak in the bathroom, not sure I was not sewer leak. Carpet was torn, and dirty. Checked for bed bugs, it was that nasty. Found out the mattress was filthy, then started wondering do they rent rooms by the hour? Room smelled like mildew. The picture of the hotel has to be 30 years old. Management did not offer to do anything for us, because we booked through Orbits. Will I use them again? It remains to be seen.

Very friendly lady at the front desk, easy check in.

It was an absolutely terrible experience , we had charter fished all day. We arrived and checked in around 630 pm , walked up stairs to our room and rat droppings everywhere before we even opened the door !!! When we entered the room it hadn’t been cleaned what so ever and I mean had been that way for months! Dirty dishes in oven , oven was absolutely atrociously disgusting! Dust covered everything, vents hadn’t been cleaned , filters were black !!! All we wanted was a shower and to go eat before all the restaurants closed early and the shower didn’t even work ! They offered a smaller room which in which the room we reserved was an efficiency suite because we had 3 of us staying in which they wouldn’t take off anything from any of the cost to compensate us for a tiny room. So they insisted on maintenance trying to fix our suite , so we asked being we were in the little room waiting could we at least use the shower so we could go get food before the Resturants closed because of the Covid virus , we were instructed by management that we would be charged an extra room if we did ???!!!!! So if you read this , it was absolutely horrific!!! And wouldn’t discount us on room rate or anything!!!!

Great location, friendly staff, nice room. I'll stay here again.

Very nice property with a variety of choices for rooms. Had to bring a pet at the last minute, and though the “pet rooms” were all occupied they still accommodated us for a small fee, of course.

The sheets were dirty; had hair on them. Not quite sure they were cleaned from the previous occupants.

Since guests do occasionally bring things in, we gave you the benefit of the doubt and refunded all of your money. However, the room you were in was thoroughly inspected after you left and we found absolutely nothing in the room that could have bitten you. We did locate what was causing the musty smell and took care of it.

Our owners are constantly working to improve our hotel. It is an old hotel and can not be made new, no matter how hard we work. I am sorry you were not happy here. That room was occupied the night before you and is currently occupied. No one else has had a problem with it.
