We completely enjoyed our stay at the Roanoke Island Inn. From making the reservations...to actually changing the dates...The facility, the location and the staff were just great! We would absolutely stay there again and have already told many if going to Nags Head...Manteo...to stay there, too!

We have visited the Roanoke Island Inn for over 20 years, usually 2 times each year. We have stayed in most of the rooms at the inn. They are all well appointed and clean. The décor befits the laid back style of Manteo and the Outer Banks. This year, we brought our son and daughter and their guests. We stayed...

Picturesque inn on the edge of Manteo's (very small) centre. Had Room 2 which had 2 beds and a minimalist charm and very seaside feel. Beds were firm but comfortable and there was no wardrobe, just some Shaker style pegs on the wall - do people not stay for more than a few days? The only thing that let the...

This was really the perfect inn experience. Very comfortable room, access to a lovely common room with books and food, and a terrific location in Manteo. It is easy walking distance to the town and its restaurants, easy driving distance onto the Outer Banks, but isolated enough that it is blissfully quiet. The view out across the sound is lovely....

Can only agree that this is a lovely inn to stay at. Website probably does not do it justice. The friendliness and willingness to help make it very special and the gardens are beautiful. We were sorry to leave. Also make sure you see Gina's paintings.......they are brilliant!

The second time was perfect. We stayed on second floor and it was a rainy couple of days and we enjoyed it! Got a spectacular light show one night! It was cosy, the gardens were pretty and they were getting ready for a wedding. This time we spent more time exploring downtown. Dee is like a family member you pick!...

Excellent service, a beautiful site, and comfortable accommodations made our overnight visit most memorable. We particularly enjoyed a glass of wine on the balcony overlooking the water! And a short walk to many great restaurants.

We stayed at the Roanoke Island Inn for two nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is idyllic as it has a great view and is very close to the centre of town. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the innkeeper was extremely helpful and friendly. We took advantage of the bikes available at the inn...

Couldn't think of a better place to stay - great location, excellent room and we couldn't have been made more welcome. Would recommend unhesitatingly. Generous continental breakfast and the manager, Dee, was extremely helpful

Very nice building with beautiful Veranda on second floor, conveniently located 5 mins by foot from "downtown", waterfront, innkeeper friendly & helpful, rooms are spacious, garden nice, pantry large with great collection of books. Breakfast very good, amazing that 6 chairs sit everybody, at least we had no queuing up for breakfast ... Can thoroughly recommend staying there!
