My daughter was married at the Inn on Pamlico and I spent four nights there. The staff did an outstanding job - they were warm, hospitable and very accommodating. (Thanks Gina, Natasha, Steve and all the others!). The food is exceptional!! The staff selects the vegetables from the kitchen gardens and lots of other ingredients are source locally. My entire...

We love the Inn on Pamlico Sound. It's my 3rd trip in 6 months and each trip has been fantastic. The grounds are quaint and beautiful and the staff is outstanding. The rooms are very comfy and the views are awesome. Everything makes you feel right at home. Can't wait to come back!

Nice looking place on the website, but when you get there it's quite different. Pool was under construction. No A/C working - 86 degrees F so they open the windows to the highway noise. (The desk clerk said they turned the AC off for one of the other guests who had an allergy or something. Explanation made no sense.) There...

We are sorry this guest did not enjoy his stay, but are compelled to make material corrections to his verifiable misstatements. The guest reserved on short notice for one night, and was difficult and unpleasant when making his reservation. Prominently featured on our website is a large graphic of our reconstruction following the devastation Hurricane Matthew brought to our island;...

25 miles an hour - yes, that is the speed limit in town! and the police are everywhere waiting to give you a ticket. It was not the way to arrive at our destination at 11 p.m. Had never been to the OBX before so had no idea what to expect. A friend had recommended this place to stay and...

We had a very pleasant stay for our long-weekend away. The staff at the Inn were very polite, professional and accommodating. The room was very clean, spacious and came with all the little extra amenities that make a weekend away that much more pleasant. Nice little 'treats' basket in the room, including popcorn in case you want to take advantage...

My husband and I stayed here for the first two nights of our honeymoon in April 2017. We stayed in Sea Oats. The king size bed was very comfortable, and the double headed shower and jet tub in the bathroom was a nice place to relax in the evenings. Nice amenities for couples on a romantic getaway or honeymoon. The...

We had a delightful two-night stay in the Oleander room. We originally booked Camellia and decided to switch due to the pool construction (nearly complete now). At first we weren't sure if the Inn would be the right fit for us with a seven-year-old, but it turned out wonderfully! Everyone was so kind and accommodating to our son. Our dinner...
