Gary is an excellent host! We needed a place to stay for one night and this was perfect. We were running late and Gary even called to check up on us, which is unheard of anymore. It's off the beaten path but a great place to stay with a good breakfast in the morning! Thanks for the stay, we wish...

This is a 50o's style motel. Excellent staff and a very nice continental breakfast and great coffee. Wasn't expecting such a nice offering. It could use a little work, but for a 1 night stay very accommodating. The water pressure in the shower was amazing!!

Rooms are older and could use a complete remolding but clean. Parking was not infront of your room and we had to walk in sand. Thus sand in room. Breakfast area was nice and food was presented in a attractive way..Staff was friendly. You need to travel for everything unless you have a boat on the waterway.

Owners were on site, friendly, and invested in your having a pleasant stay. Rooms were older but clean and the breakfast bar was fresh and well laid out. On the Intercoastal waterway so good place to stay if you have a boat, but an short easy drive into downtown if you don't.

Oh my goodness, how disappointed we were with this place. It seemed to be clean but everything in the room was sub par for the high price they charge.

We needed a place close to the ferry to Ocracoke and chose Core Creek Lodge. We were drawn by availability and price, plus TripAdvisor reviews. It is much further from town than we realized, but does have a Beaufort address. The room was modest and clean. The beds were comfortable. Breakfast was simple, but better than many places we have...
