Making the reservation was so easy. Everyone working at the front desk and management to the maintenance guy were plain and simply Awesome! The best way I can discribe our stay would be that we can hear people conversation through the walls and not just that they were talking. If anyone was in the hallways it was like they were...

At the end of May, our family decided to take a mini-vacation on Ocracoke June 26 until June 29, 2013. We started looking on the internet for places to stay. My Mom had just passed away suddenly so we were looking for a relaxing place to take a break from the stress and grief. We had visited Ocracoke on our...

We really enjoyed our stay at Blackbeard's Lodge. With two small dogs we now vacation with, finding a pet friendly place is really important. The place is old but full of coastal island charm. The rooms are small, clean, simple and basic and filled with amenities such as small fridge & coffee pot, a nice sized dresser and spacious closet....

We LOVE staying at Blackbeard's! Always clean and the rooms are really cute and homey. The owners make us feel like family! We always tell our friends and family to stay here when on the island. We will definitely be back!

We spent two nights here, and it was with trepidation that I entered, as when we pulled up, from the outside the place looked slightly run-down. However, I was so wrong - it is a lovely place, in a good convenient location full of character and so unique. The atmosphere and ambience were great, with large public areas, full of...

We had another great stay at Blackbeard's. Our room was wonderful and the maids kept everything clean throughout our stay. We never even saw them. Chip and Casey were both very helpful. If you're looking for a nice place to stay while on Ocracoke Island, Blackbeard's is the place. Don't come looking for the Hilton. It's a quaint little motel...

We went through all of the negative reviews before we decided to stay here. They all made us a little nervous. However, most of the hotels were booked up so we gave it a chance. It is NOT overly priced.. AT ALL!!!!! The beds are definitely comfortable. We had an apartment- 2 adults and 2 kids. Sure.. it wasn't huge.....

I will be making my 4th visit to Ocracoke in as many years next week, and I've stayed at Blackbeard's each time. Need I say more? My last visit was in May 2012. I am returning with my best friend of 45+ years and look forward to a relaxing week on the island for her first visit to North Carolina....

Stayed here for two nights in September 2012 and it was just "okay" in my book. I thought the price was very expensive especially for low season. The place is run down and needs some serious renovations. The mattresses were horrible....felt like I was sleeping in a hole. It is a good location and walking distance to several restaurants and...
