We visited Manteo on a late June Saturday so we were always going to pay "through the nose" for accommodation, but at over $200 (inc tax) I expect better especially as no breakfast was included. The rooms were spacious but extremely tired and in desperate need of a refurb. Reminded me of some older Super 8 we have stayed in.... More

Very nice people but the rooms were very dated as was the rest of the facility. Peeling pain, old fashioned air/heat with very musty smell and loud. I wish I could say nicer things because the staff was very nice. But this is a very old place and for $159 a night I expected more.

We live in Manteo but we're moving this weekend so we had to stay in a hotel. Elizabethan inn is a really nice hotel with very friendly staff. The room was very clean and beds were very comfortable. The only two downfalls were the smell of the room and the check out. Our room smelled so moldy that it was... More

The young gentleman at the front desk, around his 20's, was exceptionally impolite. Appeared like he had a extremely terrible day and took pleasure in making the customers day dreadful as well. He was that discourteous, if it was earlier I would have said forget this facility and went to another hotel. He didn't care for the guests. We made... More

I've been staying at this hotel for years but was disappointed at this last visit.

Rather impressed by the renovations made to this older motel! Very nice for a budget friendly location. Only negative was with those in nearby rooms (motorcycle bunch) who collected outside and laughed and joked loudly to midnight and beyond. My young children really needed their rest. Motel needs a way to limit such behavior. Staff was very courteous and helpful.

We needed a relatively inexpensive hotel for an impromptu visit to Manteo. Our first choice was not available so we chose this property. It is not fancy but it is more than adequate, clean and close to the historic district. Manteo is just over the bridge from the beach areas and all the associated seafood, ice cream and pubs. The...
