My wife and I booked a room for three nights over Presidents Day to celebrate our forty sixth wedding anniversary. Wanted to visit the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island, do a little sight seeing, in and around the OBX and see some things we have never had the time to see on our usual one day trips to the...

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay at the Elizabethan Inn. Room 518 is one of our most requested rooms and is rented almost every night. The clerk went into room 518 after you changed rooms and found nothing wrong with it.The person who checked out the morning you arrived had been there for four nights with no...

Old hotel needing renovation. Painting needed. Windows need cleaning. Outdoor shrubs need trimming. Room had old smell to it. Wallpaper peeling in places in bathroom. Did not have a complimentary toothbrush at front desk or even one to purchase. The only real asset is the large indoor swimming pool with staff.

Very friendly, efficient service during the check in process. I stayed here based on the property being pet friendly and it was significantly more affordable than hotels just 15min away in Nags Head area. They had a walking area for dogs away from the road. The rooms was clean and cozy but a bit dated. That's ok I had my...

If it were anywhere else, I would give The Elizabethan Inn 2 stars instead of 3. But here in Manteo, there doesn't seem to be much to choose from in the way of hotels. We stayed here for a week for business. The front desk and housekeeping employees are nice. The decor is very dated. It's all tolerable, except the...

I am sorry we do not have coffee in the lobby. There are several places, the closest being 1/3 of a mile, to which the front desk could have directed you for fresh coffee. I have made note of the items you mentioned in the bathroom and we appreciate your bringing this to our attention. We look forward to seeing...

When you read the reviews which state, "Don't stay here," what they REALLY mean is, "Spend the night under the Washington Baum Bridge; it's far more comfortable." We should have heeded the clues when, upon check-in, we overheard the clerk refunding a patron's second night after he fled the hostel in distress. Our room (in the newer section of the...

Enjoyed the friendly receptionists, especially Dustin who provided great recommendations for restaurants in the area. Rooms were comfortable though older property. Direct booking allowed us to get 10% using AAA. Ended up eating at Bob's then Get the Hell Out and Dirty Dicks which was fun and good! Refrigerator and microwave were convenient and helpful!

I am sorry you disagree with our policy. However, you knew the cancellation policy when you made the reservation. The hotel can not be blamed for the weather. If we allowed everyone who changed their mind at the very last minute to cancel without charge, we would not be in business very long. Whether the hotel was or was not...
