We do not recommend this place. The sheets had faded brown stains on it. The place was musty and outdated. The lights are dim in the rooms. It's expensive ($200/night with tax) and not worth it at all.

We are sorry you were not happy with your room. Had you let us know, we would have gladly moved you to a different room. However, you never let us know there were any problems. To address the issues you mentioned: There are no "brown stains" on our sheets. What you saw was a "watermark" with the design of an...

This inn is actually very motel-ish. You can see the pictures for yourself. The place isn't even that close to the beach, and you're still charged $180 a night. One of our lights didn't work, the carpet was worn down, and the water from the shower/tub has a strange green tint to it. In addition, the wall mounted AC units...

It is our aim to please everyone and we are sorry that you were not happy here. Our hotel is located on Roanoke Island. That is why you were able to get a room for $180 instead of the $249 to $360 the motels on the beach were charging 4th of July weekend. If you had let us know about...

Very nice staff but rooms had a musty smell and bathrooms were dirty very dirty. Would have stayed somewhere else but no one would take dogs. We will not recommend anyone stay there. The room was very old and needed work. Looks and smelled like hotel was flooded at some time. Nasty place

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, and for saying our employees are very nice. The air conditioner in your room went out the day you arrived and a new one was immediately installed.

I spend a good amount of time in the Outer Banks throughout the year for work and pleasure. I have stayed at this hotel on and off.

This hotel is conveniently located on Roanoke Island and is literally down the street from many of the island's main attractions. Roanoke Island is very pricey, and this was the best deal. The room provided an adequate night's sleep, but the rooms and the property are very dated. The room was clean, but could use a some updates to the...

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry you were not pleased with our decor, but we find that most people prefer our old-world charm to the common cookie-cutter hotels. No, the Elizabethan Inn is not new, but it is well-appointed, well-maintained and very clean. The clerk who checked you in was very upset by your comments about her. She...

The stay was affordable and quite comfortable as well. The hotel is minutes away from attractions and well maintained. As other reviewers mentioned, the room was dark and gloomy when the shades are closed. But they were clean and peaceful.
