This our second time to the Inn and we just love it. We stay in the Brian Wyles room, up on the third floor. We are here in the winter and it is quiet and cozy. Everyone is friendly and we enjoy our breakfast every morning and the afternoon wine and snack. The beach is just a a short hop...

Brought my son for a one night stay before his flight back home to Minnesota. Chris was great at check in, our room was as expected, and at a fair price. A light breakfast was served in the Captain John White room. My son got to run on the beach road and even jumped in the ocean ( remeber he's...

My husband and I just got back home after two nights at the Inn. This being our third stay at The First Colony definitely lived up to our expectations. We love to stay in the Rose Payne suite, on the top floor. It has an ocean view, and it's quite large. Checking in, Chris especially was so helpful and friendly...

First Colony Inn was the perfect location for a crazy bunch of runner friends to spend the a long weekend. The staff was friendly and thoughtful. Thanks so much for accommodating us with breakfast food the next before the race. The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. We really enjoyed the afternoon snacks. Breakfast was delicious!

We like crazy runners and the Outer Banks Marathon is always a crazy, busy, fun time here on the island. We try to provide carb loaded breakfast foods and snacks for our marathoners and they always appreciate it. Thank you for your comments and we will see you next year.

Turned up having not booked. Computer systems had crashed, not only did the staff find us a lovely double room they were trusting enough to just write our details down without being able to check bank cards etc. Adequate breakfast, lovely to sit outside or take a one minute walk to the beautiful beach.

My husband and I recently stayed at this bed and breakfast. FANTASTIC from the front desk to our room. The breakfast menu was not fancy but plentiful and delicious.

The Inn is set back off the main highway running up and down the spine of the Outer Banks. Surprisingly quiet given the location. When we checked in, we were greeted somewhat lukewarmly by the person at the desk. A bit of a nit, but after driving for hours to get there would have been nice to be received with...

Thank you for staying at First Colony Inn. You mentioned that you found Nags Head to be over-built and I wanted to suggest that you may want to visit Ocracoke Island, which is further south. You can only get there via ferry (or private boat or private plane). It is about 90 minutes south of Nags Head and does not...

For a quaint small hotel with charm, this is your ticket! Rooms are named after original colonists and decorsted with antiques. Breakfast was more than continental and had hot items.
