From my first experience visiting their website, through the very friendly, personalized service I received when I phoned to book my stay and right through to my bittersweet departure at the end of my few days there, the Inn and Corolla Light did not disappoint. I'd not visited the Outer Banks in a long time; had gone regularly 40-few years...

the Inn at Corolla light is small, funky and charming. Lovely people, charming rooms - we got their last room on a busy weekend overlooking Pamlico sound with a fireplace and the pretty pool/hot tub just outside our door. This is a wonderful place to stop, relax and enjoy life.

Super awesome location with long private pier with gazebo. Free use of bikes and kitchenette in the room. We loved it and will be back. Beach horse tours right next door and ice cream shop to make everything convenient. Very friendly staff too.

Stayed here on Friday and Saturday night for a brief weekend at the beach. The weather was fantastic. The Inn is quaint but a bit showed a bit of wear. However, the price was well under that of the Hampton Inn nearby and was just as nice. Breakfast was part of the price and the room we stayed in had...

Completely agree with other posts: the staff here are incredibly friendly & personable!! The initial room we were given had a leaky A/C unit as well as a leaky mini refrigerator. But when we said something to the gentleman at the front desk, he didn't waste a second in putting us in a different (& much nicer!) room. Such a...

Headed to OBX for work and decided to opted out of the chain hotels and went with local. It was beautiful, quaint and the staff was super friendly! Got a tour of the property and a free upgrade (to a room with a view) just because. I will be back. Thanks JC, for your unrivaled hospitality.
