We loved staying at this inn. They really have it together. The location, the view, the amenities, the furnishings, the staff.... It is a tranquil and hospitable place. We went during the tourist season, and the price was as good as other places we checked, only more elegant.

This was a girl's weekend and a perfect choice for accommodations! Within walking distance of shops, restaurants and a lovely park across the inlet. Room was lovely with a view of the waterfront and bridge to the park. Staff was always helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was simple, yet adequate with cold cereals, fruit, various breads and pastries, coffee, juices, milk;... More

There are a LOT of stairs, that squeaked very loudly, and no help was offered at check in. Immediately upon walking into the room (33) there was a strong odor - mold, mildew, smoke from past occupants smoking? Not sure which. I reported it within the hour to the person at the front desk who checked us in. She wrote... More

Very disappointed. Nice location and appearance but very poorly managed. I stayed in a 2 room suite (#30) which is on the second floor directly above the restaurant and public restrooms. The restaurant/bar is supposed to close at 9 pm but they let people stay and party until after 11 pm. This makes sleep in room 30 impossible due to... More

We have stayed at the inn off and on since 2004. That year, we held my parents 50th anniversary and the inn was very professional, provided a reasonable discount for the number of rooms we booked, and served a wonderful luncheon. The location can be used as a basis to tour the outer banks. It is half an hour to... More

I recently stayed here over Memorial Day weekend for my friend's wedding. To be honest I was nervous about a bed and breakfast as I had never stayed in one and envisioned someone's grandma making me breakfast in the morning :) This was like staying in a charming, clean, wonderful hotel.

Tranquil was the word of the trip thanks to this lovely inn. It's a great location in close proximity to the highlight stops along the outer banks. The adjoining restaurant is lovely and the food is very good.

We stayed at the Tranquil House Inn on Monday. Enjoyed wine and cheese Monday afternoon, a generous continental breakfast Tuesday morning, the friendly staff, the comfortable room, the great location along the Manteo waterfront convenient for walking and shopping. Next time we plan to go when the restaurant is open.
