I accidentally locked my key card in the room immediately after getting there. I went to the office and they were so nice.

Room was clean, water was hot, bed was comfortable. This is a hotel for people who are working and will not be on the premises other than to sleep in the evening before getting up early to go to work. The linens were clean but worn, towels were pretty thread bare. Was a good selection for what I needed, a clean place to go to sleep. I would not select this hotel if I planned to be on premises other than sleeping.

Tired old Hotel and terrible staff

Pros: Only the location, but that is not enough to ever return
Cons: everything, the hotel needs to be torn down, and a new hotel put in its place with a professional staff that caters to customers needs, not swindling
Location: awesome area, we love the outer banks but will make our travel plans earlier so that we can book a decent hotel and never be forced to stay here again
The hotel pictured on the site hides all of the decay and worn out nature of the place. The hotel might have been something in the 1970's but little has been kept up sense. The room was not clean, and lacked all amenities you would expect looking at their web site. The pool on the outside was closed not even filled, and the pool and gym they said was renovated was closed the entire weekend, and was in disrepair and very dirty, not safe looking for my children. The cleaning staff would wake you at 7 am to clean the room, and when asked to return later, never did. The beds where like boards and the sheets had hairs in them from the start. They jacked the room rate for the holiday up by 300% and made you sign stacks of paper work forcing you to stay your entire time without a refund clause. I should have got the idea then that this was a terrible idea to stay when they did that to you, no real hotel does that in my openion. Because of the terrible stay we desired to leave one day early, and they refused to refund us for that day despite us pointing out nothing they promised in amenities where produced by their staff and hotel. Absolutely no customer service, it was just terrible. All the staff was interested in is making money off of you, obviously not interested in your comfortable stay or your return. Never will return there and will never recommend this hotel to anyone, beware!

Nice hotel close to Lost Colony

Pros: Very comfortable and clean, pleasant stay, within minutes of everything you would want to see in Manteo. Heated indoor pool was nice also
Cons: Would be nice if breakfast were offered, and coffee available throughout the day.
Location: Lost Colony outdoor drama, the Elizabethan Gardens, Festival park, and the shops/restaurants of downtown Manteo. Big Al's Diner (all things Coke!)
We needed a place for our family to stay after viewing the Lost Colony outdoor drama and this hotel was perfect. Just minutes away, comfortable, clean rooms, pleasant staff. Would stay again.

Hotel close to the function we were attending

The hotel is an older one, but was nice enough - except the bed mattress (not comfortable at all). We had a pleasant stay and would stay there again but probably would request a room in the newer section. The air/heat unit did not work, at least for very long. It would come on and run a minute or two then cut off. We would have to restart it when we got uncomfortable.

Dated, needs some reviving

Pros: Quiet. dark room, Bed comfy.
Cons: Better maid service. Better tvs. keep pool open until October.
Location: Waterfont manteo is nice. Brewery and restaurants open . Museum and replica of Queen Elizabeth, ship. The Elizabethan gardens are very nice
Wanted to spend a nice 3 day weekend in this hotel, in the off beaten path of Manteo. I have seen The Elizabethan Inn many times before when passing to go to waterfront. The front desk clerk was nice, and was friendly. The check in process was fine, but my first disappointment hit here when he told me the pool was CLOSED!. This is still summer in anyones mind, It was 87 degrees each day we were there and would have loved to be able to lunge around a pool. So we went ahead. Room was mid sized, with a King bed as we requested, bathroom tiny, with barely enough room to sit on the toilet without your left knee hitting a wall. The toilet paper holder is too high above you and the shower dripped constantly. The tv was an old tube type. Free wi fi worked but was very slow and poor reception. The room had a coffee pot and small plastic cups , never did use. On our first morning we did have housekeeper clean room , wipe down sinks , empty trash etc, and make bed, On next two mornings NO service. I did get a knock on the door only to ask did I need anything. We were fully expecting daily maid service. Upon chek out I asked the clerk if that was supposed to be the case, he said YES. I told him our room was serviced and cleaned only once , on our first day and none after. I did note there was an envelope on the dsek in our oom to leave a tip for maid, however I was not about to , as there was poor service. The clerk did not offer me any refund or vouchers. Was to tell manager.
