I stayed the weekend with a wedding party at Barrys!!! It was perfect!! Thank you Kay for the wonderful hospitality and friendly personality!! My most FAV thing about Barrys is the privacy the gorgeous bamboo provided! It gives the place a feeling of intimacy and seclusion giving myself a lil nook where i could truly relax and just breath.

The only real option to stay without going to OBX. We stayed for 2 nights, a Thursday and Friday. All rooms are themed, and ours was the Mardi Gras room. The rooms are small and quaint and this property (a bit hard to find) is a renovated motel not a OBX high rise. That being said, it was a quiet...

So you're checking in to that big house Sunday? Spend Saturday night in Grandy! Trust me. If you can travel by boat, this is a must stop. Classic road house bar over looking the sound. Scenic view. Stripper pole.

Room was adorable, lodge was charming, views from restaurant stunning. Food was very good, but my husband had to order 3 times because out of 2 entrees. She crab soup very good but "bowl" serving size was paltry. The bar area (which we were told to cut through from lodge to restaurant) had a pole in middle of dance floor...

I stayed here because of the good reviews but I was disappointed. I'm apprehensive to write this two-star review because the staff were amazing and the price of $85 was reasonable but I want others to know the details about the stay at Barry's Walnut Island. We arrived close to midnight and the very-nice lady gave me the keys and...

Thank you for mentioning that we have great reviews, our room pricing is very reasonable, and our staff is friendly. We are sorry you were disappointed because of the rain water on the ground, it has rained here on the Outer Banks for the past two months and being on an Island (surrounded by water) the water often does not...

What an amazing find! Staff is super helpful! The room I chose is clean, cozy, inviting. Each room holds a lot of individual charm and attention to detail. There is a covered porch right outside of the room with a table and chairs. This feels really homey, and hands down, one of the BEST motels I have EVER stayed in!...

This was one of our first stops on a kayak tour and we were happy to have found this gem. There is a dock out front that we were able to securely tie up to for a few nights while a rainy cold front passed through. Our "pirate-themed room" fit us perfectly. Some reviewers commented on the decorations/lack of space...

This was not a planned stop, it was getting late, we were hungry and ready to rest. Found on trip advisor, called, and was helped by a very friendly person. Arrived and checked in at the restaurant, the food smelled great. We were given a choice of theme rooms and chose the New Orleans, Mardi Gras. The room was small,...

When you come into this motor lodge with the prior experience and appropriate expectations, it's easy to appreciate this place. For us it was a colorful respite from the chain hotels on our long trip. It was our 14th room since starting a 60 day biking trip to Key West. This is a uniquely situated inn that is a very...
