In this day and age, to have no internet in the rooms (free wireless) is terrible. The Inn advertises that they have free wi-fi but in reality, the several times I've been forced to stay there (work), there was no internet. It's quite - primitive. For beach vacationers maybe this isn't an issue but I end up there for work...

We have stayed at this location in the past, so we were looking forward to our visit this year. The room was very spacious and comfortable, and we loved having a balcony with rocking chairs overlooking the marina. There are many restaurants and shops within easy walking distance, so the location is perfect. There are several outdoor seating areas on...

Very nice! Clean room facing the water, continental breakfast included juice, coffee, bagels and muffins. Would have appreciated fruit and some type of breakfast protein even yogurt. Would have liked a microwave in room. Inn in the center of all the attractions. Definitely recommend for a quiet getaway! Lots of attractions in walking distance. Found better seafood restaurants in Morehead...

We have been going to the Inlet Inn every year for the past 17 years. We always stay in the same room on the second floor. There is an elevator available which makes things much easier. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Our private balcony faces the water and Carrot Island where you can catch a glimpse of the...

This hotel was recommended by friends who have stayed there a number of times. The staff were all exceptionally hospitable, helpful, and "down home" friendly. The rooms are huge and we enjoyed a 2nd story water view room with a large private balcony. Our traveling companions had a 1st story room with an equally good water view room and a...

The hotel was recommended by some friends & it didn't disappoint. This is more of a small town type of inn, but the location is facing the water front and the view from out 2nd floor room was terrific. They appear to run a very tight ship here, so we found the room clean, comfortable & with all the convenience...

When we pulled up to the inn we weren't sure what to expect. I didn't realize all the rooms were outside and each had their own entrance. We were in room 307. It was on the third floor and it had a wonderful window seat overlooking slips with all the boats. The room itself was very big and had a...

We had a spacious, 2nd floor room with a queen or king size bed and a turquoise pull out couch. The room was fantastic, and the view of the harbor was even better. The third floor rooms had no balcony, unlike the first two floors, but had an accessible deck and lounge area. Stunning sunset and sunrise... Breakfast of warm...

When I called to make my reservation, I was told by Jane that the Inlet Inn was the Neiman Marcus of places to stay in Beaufort. Being from Dallas (the birth place of Neiman Marcus), I was intrigued. The Inlet is not quite as fancy as Neiman's, but it is an outstanding place to stay in Beaufort. I booked the...

Very clean and large rooms. The beds were comfortable but next time I will bring my own pillows. They also bring complimentary breakfast to your room. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends.

Our first and second floor waterfront rooms have king beds and private balconies to relax and enjoy the warm summer breezes. Some of our first floor waterfront rooms have wood burning fireplaces for the chilly winter months. Our third floor rooms have two queen beds and a large bay window seat perfect for watching the wild horses and traveling mariners. We also have some non-waterfront rooms as well as one room with a king bed and two twin beds, but with no balcony, perfect for larger families. Included with your stay is a small continental breakfast with warm muffins, bagels, and orange juice with coffee upon request. We deliver to your room or breakfast can be enjoyed in our third floor widows walk lounge.
